The following Conditions of Sale must be strictly adhered to and regulate the sale of each Lot to any Vendor, Bidder or Buyer who has been approved by Gascoines Auctioneers and Valuers (henceforth referred to as the Auctioneers). By participating in a sale, you will be judged to have read, understood and accepted these terms and are therefore bound by them.

All persons attend auctions at their own risk. Under no circumstances will the Auctioneers, nor the Vendor be individually or collectively held responsible for any loss or damage caused to individuals or their property present on the Auction Centre site or car park.

The Auctioneers reserve the right to refuse approval to any Buyer or online Bidder at the former’s own discretion.

All bidders need to provide a £200 deposit, if requested. This can be paid via a bank transfer or over the phone. This is fully refundable via bank transfer. The bidder can request this back at any time when they wish to discontinue bidding by emailing info@newarkauctioncentre.com stating this along with all the relevant details. Refunds may take up to 5 working days.


Conditions Regulating the Conduct of the Sale

The highest bidder acknowledged as such by the Auctioneers will be the Buyer. In the event of doubt, on the part of the Auctioneers as to the validity of any bid, the Auctioneers will have absolute discretion to determine the successful bidder, cancel the sale, re-sell the Lot or take any such remedial action as the Auctioneers see fit.  

WARNING: All items are ‘sold as seen’. Many of the pieces sold are factory seconds, end-of-line, surplus stock returns or second hand and may in some way be damaged, incomplete or faulty. It is not the Auctioneers’ responsibility to inform of any damage. All items are purchased at the Buyer or Bidder’s own risk and no guarantees or warranties can be provided by the Auctioneers.

The Auctioneers will always strive to describe accurately any Lot that is to be sold, but may not be held responsible for any errors or omissions, regarding descriptions, measurement, weight, quantity or quality. It is strongly advised that Buyers and Bidders physically inspect the Lot(s) and satisfy themselves regarding the condition of each Lot they intend to purchase, in advance of any bidding taking place.  All images and descriptions are for guidance purposes only.

Buyers should check the safety of any mechanical, electrical or technical items purchased before attempting to use them and should take advice from an engineer, electrician or other qualified technical expert as to the fitness of goods for any particular purpose. The Auctioneers cannot accept liability for any damage sustained due to disregard of this warning.


Our salerooms are open for viewing on Wednesdays 12 noon until 7.00pm and Thursdays 8.30am until 10.00am. Our weekly auction begins at 10.00am every Thursday.

Lots in any auction that have been physically de-branded must remain de-branded. No original trademarks or vendor/client logos or images may be copied or used by the successful Bidder in any circumstance. Any Buyer deemed in breach of this risks permanent exclusion from future auctions.

The Auctioneer’s hammer is final. Once your bid has been accepted, it is binding. This also applies to commission bids. Once an item has been sold, it becomes the Buyer’s responsibility. However, the Buyer is not entitled to move any Lot until payment has been made in full for each Lot purchased by him at the auction.

Gascoines Auctioneers and Valuers offer no assurances or guarantees on any Lot(s) that we sell. We can offer no refunds, nor do we accept the return of goods, once your bid has been successful.

Lots purchased can be paid for and collected up to 5.30pm on the day of sale. All items must be collected by 5.00pm on the Friday following the weekly Thursday sale (unless you have made a prior arrangement with staff).

Such damage must be made good by or at the expense of the Buyer. Any estimated cost of repair is to be fixed by the Auctioneer, whose decision is binding to the Buyer.  

The Buyer is also responsible for any loss or damage to any person resulting from the removal of his Lot(s) and indemnifies the Vendor or the Auctioneers against any liability whether or not such damage was caused by the negligence of the Buyer or his agent.

Insurance and Risk

All goods purchased are the Buyer’s responsibility from the moment they are sold to him, on the fall of the Auctioneer’s hammer. The Buyer should make his own insurance arrangements from that point.

The Auctioneers will take reasonable care of the goods whilst they are on the premises and also in the event of staff members helping to remove the goods after the successful sale.

If the Auctioneers do not exercise any of its rights or remedies under these terms, that will not mean that the Auctioneers have waived any of its rights and will not mean that the Buyer does not have to comply with the Terms.
