Payment of Auction Purchases


Buying At Auction

If you are successful in bidding at one of our auctions payment is due no later than two working days after the sale and can be made in the following ways.


Present in The Saleroom

It would help if accounts were settled in advance of collecting at the saleroom using your paylink or direct online using the details below. Alternatively we can accept payment by card at the saleroom. WE CANNOT ACCEPT CASH OR CHEQUES.


Online or by Bank Transfer

The bank details you require to make your payment are on the invoice you received by email or in the post and are also listed below;

Account Name The Sheffield Saleroom Ltd
Address: Barclays, 2 Arena Court, Sheffield, South Yorkshire, S9 2LF
Sort Code: 20-76-89
Account Number: 43300390

International payments will also require the following information;

IBAN: GB50 BARC 2076 8943 3003 90
Currency: GBP - UK Pound


All bank charges or fees, at either the point of sending or receiving, must be met by the buyer.

Please remember to include the name you bought under and, if possible, the sale date or a Lot number to assist us.


Over the Telephone

Cardholder not present payments are not accepted for overseas buyers. UK buyers are limited to £250 for credit and debit cards over the telephone.



Online payments are our preferred method. We can only accept cheques if there is no other way for a buyer to settle their account. They must be posted to us and left to clear our account before collection of any goods purchased. Please be aware that this can take some considerable time to pay the cheque into the bank and after that, up to 10 working days after it is paid in to clear.

Auction Bidding

We produce detailed catalogues for all auctions and sales are all listed fully illustrated on both our website and other specialist auction bidding websites. Our regular email keeps both trade and private buyers fully updated. Auctions are widely advertised within the press.

Auctions are held live in real time on the internet with auction bidding platforms such as and easylive, enabling buyers to watch and bid at the sales without being present in the saleroom.

Specialist valuers are available in the Saleroom, Tuesdays, Wednesdays & Thursdays from 10am to 4pm for free pre-auction appraisals and advice. We also hold regular Specialist 'Fine Arts & Antiques' Valuation Days in the Saleroom by appointment.
