CHANGES IN AUCTION CHARGES
As from our first auction after the summer (probably late August) there will be some increases in our charges. Some of these have been unchanged for some years, and are being altered to generally keep up with inflation or changes in our expenses.
In the auctions;

The main Vendor’s commission remains unchanged at 12% + v.a.t.

Lot fee now £1.70 (was £1.50) + v.a.t.

The Vendor Administration fee will be £7.00 (prev.£6.50) +v.a.t.

Our minimum charge per vendor per auction will change from £10 + v.a.t. to £12 + v.a.t. (but this only comes into effect if the total of normal charges is less than £12).

The Buyer’s Premium will become 12% (previously 10%) inclusive of v.a.t.

 

The Buy or Bid Sale entry fee per lot will increase from 25p to 50p per lot, with commission on sales being unchanged at 10%. (The entry fee was last changed eighteen years ago !)

 

 

IMPORTANT; Viewing Arrangements for “Not-To-Auction” Lots.

This relates to all lots in this auction which have the “[1a]” symbol in their description, signifying that they will not be taken to the auction venue. It will be arranged so that these lots can be viewed at our shop premises on auction day, and that purchases can be collected that same evening.
{a} In addition to the normal viewing arrangements noted above, any lots marked “[1a]” can be viewed at our smaller shop at 1A Inverleith Gardens, on Monday 25th March from 3pm to 6.45pm. Should there be pressure on available space, viewing will be at the discretion of our staff.
{b} After purchasing and paying for any “[1a]” lots at the auction venue, customers can take their receipted invoice to our shop and pick up these lots, from 8pm until ten minutes after the last customer has been cleared through accounts.
{c} Customers can still opt to collect their lots from us later in the week during shop opening hours.
{d} There is no parking directly outside 1A, so customers will have to park a little further along Inverleith Gardens. While we can lend you a trolley, there will be no available staff to carry boxes.

THIS IS HOW YOU CAN BID;
In Person. This is a public auction, and bids are made in person at the auction in the traditional manners.
By post. Please use the Bid Form supplied, and send first class.
Telephone bids will be accepted at any time before the sale (but the earlier the better). These bids should be confirmed in writing (post or email), even if the written confirmation will not reach us until after the auction. Numbers are 0131 552 1220, or 0131 478 7021 up to about 2pm on sale day, after which use the mobile number.
A mobile number (07974 962649) can be called on the afternoon and evening of sale only. Please speak to someone – no texts, no recorded messages. If no answer, just try again (we can be busy !).
E-mail bids should be sent to us at [email protected] at any time from the moment you receive this catalogue until 2.45pm on Monday 3 June. Please do not e-mail bids to us after that time. Please use the format and wording used on the bid form that comes with your auction catalogue, and include your postal address. (We have a back-up email address of [email protected] in case of problems.) We normally confirm receipt of email bids within 24 hours (not on the Sunday before the auction, and usually within one hour on the auction day). If you do not get an email confirmation from us within that time, please try again, or phone.

                  

€uro Currency; We are happy to accept Euro cash payments in our shop. We normally allow the market rate rounded down to the next whole penny. For example, at the time of writing, the market rate is 0.8809, so we are allowing 88p per Euro (which is probably better than your bank will give you). You can also pay for lots in this auction by Euro banknotes (postal customers please confirm before sending). We also accept payments in our shop in Euros, and we buy some old “legacy” currencies, as well as other coins and notes.

                  

CREDIT CARDS

We are happy to accept MasterCard and Visa credit card payments, as well as payments by Debit Card. This facility can be used by room purchasers (who pay their accounts at the auction), by other local customers (who pay their bill in our shop), and by postal buyers.
In order to deal with postal clients, our bid forms have been designed to make space for credit or debit card instructions.
If you want your purchases charged in this way, please complete the appropriate section.
Do not complete these details unless you want to pay by card, and to have the lots posted.

FORTHCOMING AUCTIONS; Our next auction is planned for late August 2019.
This auction is conducted according to the “Philatelic Auctioneers Standard Terms and Conditions of Sale” (available if requested), with the exception of Clause 6, where “Scottish” should be substituted for “English”.
A Buyer’s Premium of 10% (inclusive of global v.a.t.) will be added to the sale price of all lots.
         Telephone bids are accepted, but must later be confirmed in writing. Alternatives and limits are accepted.
Material can be accepted at any time for inclusion in future sales. Our commission is 12% of the sale price, plus administration fee of £1.70 per lot + £7 per vendor (all plus v.a.t.). Full details on request.
         We DO NOT charge buyers a handling charge per lot, nor is there VAT added to any sale prices.
Please bid early. In the case of equal bids, the lot will be sold to the person whose bid was received first (unless free bidding in the room equals the top book-bid, although the Auctioneer will try to regulate the bidding in such a way as to avoid this).
         Apart from viewing the lots in person, you can get a better description of any lot, by telephoning or writing. (Photocopies are available, at a minimal plus postage, or request scans by email.)
Remember the Buy or Bid Sale - bring items along on the night. We will try to sell them for you, at a charge of 10% + 25p (optional insurance 1% extra). Have a look at what’s on offer before and during the main auction. You can buy items outright or place a bid.
(Larger lots delivered to our shop are charged £1 per lot entry fee.)

Regular bidders and buyers may qualify for free renewal. Rates abroad are European countries £12, Overseas £15.
Successful postal bidders should note that postage stamps are not an acceptable means of paying your account.
         Prices realised for this sale will be published with our next catalogue. If you are not normally on our mailing list, the List of Prices Realised can be had by simply sending us a stamped addressed envelope. Alternatively, you can be put on our auction mailing list (see above).

Open Bids (“Buy Bids”) are not normally accepted. If such bids are made, they will be taken to mean a bid of ten times the printed estimate.
