We provide a written proxy bid and telephone bidding service for
bidders who can't attend the auction. A form together with the
terms and conditions can be found at the end of the auction
catalogue or by clicking here.
A written proxy bid is lodged with the auctioneer. This is the
maximum price you are prepared to pay and the auctioneer bids on
your behalf up to this level at his sole discretion.
The telephone bidding service is subject to the availability of
a member of the Acuitus team on the auction day. Please be aware
that telephone connections can be interrupted and audibility can be
Please print off and return the completed form to us along with
your cheque. For some bidders a solicitor's undertaking to transfer
the deposit in the event that their proxy or telephone bid is
successful is a preferred alternative to sending a cheque. This
must be by prior arrangement through us.
Please give yourself plenty of time before the auction day to
make the arrangements with us.
We would usually recommend that bidders attend the auction in
person or appoint someone to attend and bid in their place. This
allows bidders to be aware of last minute changes to the auction
day addendum or of any announcements from the rostrum. Whilst we
try to ensure there are no changes at this stage sellers do
occasionally sell or withdraw the properties at the last moment or
change the guide price. Attendance at the auction also gives you
more control over the bids you make.
These facilities are provided for your convenience. Please read
carefully the conditions under which we operate these services. If
you have any questions please contact us.
