Call the auction; Tuesdays after 12 noon or all day Wednesday and Thursday for sale results, please give us your five digit reference that is at the top right hand corner of the yellow receipt. If you would like your results emailed to you, please let us know. Useful tip! we notice that some of our customers call asking for a specific staff member, however we work as a team here and  the query can usually be dealt with by any member of staff, such as reducing reserves, results of sales or withdrawing lots.  Valuers are often in and out of the office weekdays (apart from sale day) so please pass your inquiry on so that we can help to resolve your query. If you would like to speak to a specific person and they are not available, we can get them to call you back.
