Bids by Phone and Email Welcome

You may submit bids by telephone or email, but please quote your bidding number. If you are not registered, please phone first. We particularly recommend submitting bids in this way at times of postal disruption. When sending emails, please request an "email has been read" auto reply as we are unable to acknowledge all correspondence at busy times.

Debit and Credit Card Payments

We accept debit and credit card payments at all our sales. Debit card transactions are free of charge, credit card transactions are subject to an additional charge of 2% on your invoice total (this is the charge made to us by the card companies).

Credit card companies can randomly ask us to telephone to authorise your transaction if their security systems identify an "unusual " spending pattern. You may wish to notify your bank/card company that you may be buying and give the date and our company name. We hope that this will avoid any unnecessary delays.

Collection of Lots (Commission/Phone Bidders)

Successful bidders will be invoiced shortly after the sale with a choice of options for collection or delivery. Items to be collected from Woodford Halse or Banbury should be removed within 28 days (unless specific arrangements, such as delivery to other railwayana events, have been previously agreed). In the absence of payment, removal or any other arrangements for collection being made, items will be re-sold without further notification and storage charges imposed. Please see section 7 of the Conditions of Sale.
