The catalogue will give you a detailed description of each lot and in most cases an estimate value of same. Then, mark on your catalogue items you may be interested in and ask the Auctioneer any questions you may have regarding these items. Read the terms and conditions of the Auction as each Auction House may have varied terms and conditions.
Register to bid, obtain a bidding number and take a seat.
When the item/lot that you are interested in comes up for auction, prepare to bid and if you are successful , show your bidding number to the Auctioneer. At the end of the auction or when all items you are interested in have been up for auction you will be given your invoice with all your lots/items which you have bought, showing the hammer price and the premium.
