Once a thorough appraisal has been conducted we will be able to provide you with an accurate worst case and best case valuation, depending on the condition, circumstances and the timescales.
Depending on the nature of the assets we can do one of three things, our experienced lotting agents can come to site and prepare the entire sale from start to finish, an agent can come to site and work in conjunction with you to put the sale together or relevant templates can be supplied for you to lot your own sale.
On a regular basis we run auctions which are a combination of several vendors' items grouped together in relevant industry sectors, the combining helps both marketing and audience subscription.
A consignment fee ranging from 0% to 15% will deducted from the final hammer price depending on the value of the asset in question. You can also click on the Auction process tab which will clearly show the steps involved from the starting point to payment of invoice.
Buyers must pay by electronic transfer or online secure payment. Payments received are reconciled hourly, once received electronic confirmation is sent to buyer, vendor and any other party to the transaction.
Payments are reconciled daily and vendors are paid within within 14 days of the final reconciliation. The payment can be made via bank transfer or cheque.
Often many lots will achieve far more than the reserve set so vendors decide to subsidise the poorer performing lots. Alternatively sometimes lots are re listed in another sale in the hope next time the audience is different. Additionally All unsold lots at vendors request will also be automatically be added to the BPI Marketplace, which will give great visibility to all unsold assets which will be added as buy now price.
We have the ability to elect NOT to charge VAT if a vendor is not VAT registered.
If you are exporting we will require the following: 1) Proof of payment from overseas; 2) Proof of Export; 3) An Overseas Address. When we have received this we will re-fund the VAT back to you bank account.
A BPI Representative can be on site within 24 hours to agree a purchase price of goods and payment will be made the same day by bank transfer.
