You are able to review the status of your bids by clicking on 'My Bids' link within your on line account. Alternatively you may download an 'Auto Bid' form and forward it to us by emaI or post.

Bidding at the auction

We strongly advise clients to pre-register, this will save time with the registration process on the day. To pre-register click here. Please arrive at least 15 minutes before your first lot as we will need to issue you with a bidding number and paddle.

Telephone bidding

Live telephone bidding facilities are available on lots with a lower estimate of £400 or above. To avoid disappointment please book your telephone bidding at least 48 hrs before the sale.

Live internet bidding

A public viewing of all lots is held the day before each sale, and at selected times on the day of the auction. Private viewings are available by prior arrangement.


TimeLine Auctions provides a comprehensive and confidential selling service. We are happy to tailor our services to suit your requirements, whether selling a single item or a large collection.

Annually we hold four, three day antiquity and coin auctions in central London. We also hold a collectables auction every month next to our head office in Essex. All lots are extensively researched, photographed and vetted by an external committee of experts.

If you would like to discuss consigning, or a direct sale, please contact Brett Hammond: 01277 815121.
