We want to make you feel as comfortable as possible and that is why we have our well-trained and professional staff to help you every step of the way.  Our friendly staff and management will assist you in whatever way you need assistance.  Our auctioneers and agents are committed to playing an educational role in the South African auction industry.
Here is some helpful information:

  • Be sure to understand all the terms and conditions of the auction including the deposit amount for the auction and the methods of payment accepted. All this information will appear on the buyer's guide and on the catalogue at all our auctions and on our website.
  • When buying a property, always be sure to talk to our professional sales personnel. They will always help you with all the information you need to make an effective buying decision
  • Familiarise yourself with all the lots on the auction before you decide what you are interested in.
  • Once you have familiarized yourself with the lots that you are interested in, examine them more carefully. Make sure that you know what you are buying.

  • Don’t wait until the last opportunity to bid, you might lose out.
  • First things first. Please be sure to read the conditions of sale. There are a number of conditions under which you bid, like VAT and commission protocol.
  • Make sure that the auctioneer see and acknowledges your bid.

Payment & Collection
