To buy at a Danielle Elizabeth auction you must first be registered as a bidder. Complete the registration form we have in store anytime during business hours and we will issue you with your unique bidding number to use during an auction to bid.. There is no cost involved with registration.
If you are not local, and bidding online for our auction, when you go to place a bid on an item you will be prompted through to our online registration form. Please just fill out the form with the required details and you will be automatically issued a paddle number and be directed back to the auction to bid. You can then log on any time through the auction period using the same paddle to bid again and indeed bid on other items.
At the completion of the auction you will be emailed a successful bid invoice for you to pay for your purchases. It is important to remember that if you bid in rooms there is a 19.8% buyers premium added to your knock down price. This includes GST, but if you choose to pay your invoice with a credit card there is a 2% charge on top to cover the merchant fees. Payment can be made by credit card, eftpos, cash, and wire transfer. The bank details are at the bottom of your tax invoice if you are paying by wire transfer. If you did your bidding and buying online, our global Auction partner (Invaluable) charges a 5% fee for their services in hosting our auction which will be added to your invoice at Checkout.
Once payment is made you will be issued with a collection invoice, and you will need this to collect your items and remove them from the building. If you are using a carrier please inform us of this so we can liase with them to make sure your items are collected efficiently and safely.
We allow two days to collect your purchases unless by prior arrangement, after that storage fees will apply. We will assist you where possible to safely load your items but we do not take any responsibility for damage. Once the items are knocked down to your bid number liability does transfer to the buyer immediately.
