Participating in an auction is easy.
You can make your offer on site, by phone or by leaving an absentee bid, but consider that you need to register with us prior to the auction. If you want to make your offer in person, simply attend the sale room.
Before every auction we publish a catalog with all the items on sale, that can be consulted online or requested by phone if you require a paperback copy.
Any additional information, such as detailed photographs of an item, can be requested to our experts.
In the week before the auction date, all the items will be exhibited at our address, so that you have the chance to analyze and inspect whatever item you may be interested in.
Each item is marked with the estimated or base sell value, which serves as a reference. This estimated value reflects the expectation of our experts on the basis of their market knowledge.
On auction day, each item will be open to bidding with its base value. It is for you to decide how much you wish to pay for the items of your interest.
To the winning bid, a buyer's commission of 15% + VAT is added.
If your biddings are successful, you can pay immediately or in the 5 days following the auction date. Item retrieval should take place up to 10 days after the auction date. If needed, VERITAS can facilitate contact details of specialized shipping companies.
If you wish to remain anonymous, you can make your biddings through an independent consultant who is present in the auction and will act on your behalf.
