Payment, Collection and Delivery
Please note that payment for purchases is due as soon as the auction ends. Successful bidders may pay in person on the day of the sale, or online via our secure payment portal at keysauctions.co.uk/account/makepayment. There is a link direct from the email invoice which is sent to all bidders with a balance outstanding once the auction has finished.
Buyers should ensure that they carefully note the collection details for each sale – for weekly sales, purchased items need to be collected on a Tuesday wherever possible, and by the end of the week of the auction at the latest (due to the quick turnaround and high number of lots every week); for specialist sales, all lots should be paid for and collected within a maximum of seven days of the sale. If you are unable to collect within the allocated times, please do contact us and we will do our best to accommodate you, and avoid any unnecessary handling or storage charges being added to your account.
In some cases we can assist with delivery or postage; please see the relevant online catalogue for details.
