Auctions, Estate Sales and Design Services Conducted in a Professional Manner
Record-breaking sale prices make the headlines, but did you know that many of the items sold at auction are within the average buyers reach? Why settle for hanging a department store reproduction on your wall when you can afford to hang original art in your home? Why settle for cheap imported knick knacks when you can purchase antiques that will someday become family heirlooms. Here's a quick step-by-step guide to our buying process. So if you are a first time buyer study up, check out the auctions, register to bid and buy!
Remember: As a buyer you will be charged a buyers premium of 15%f the hammer price, a credit card charge premium of 3.5% if you are charging your purchase and of course Connecticut State Sales Tax.
Decide what it is you want or need to purchase. The auction catalogues are posted 30 days prior to the auction giving you plenty of time to set your sites on specific items.
Step Two: Purchase an auction catalogue if one is available or view it online!
Step Three: Register to bid and don't forget to mark your calendar so you do not miss the auction! If you attend a preview you may register to bid at the preview.
Step Four: Attend the preview. Always attend the preview! Previews are free and you may spot other things you would like to purchase. At New England Auction Company, we always have previews the day and evening before the auction and for 2 hours prior to the auction!
Step Five: Bid, Win and Pay
