The auction will continue at our Harwich premises and online.


Viewing & Registration:

Viewing of all lots will be available at The May Fair Hotel at times published for each sale.  Private viewing arrangements are also available at our Essex premises, by appointment.

Registration and Invoicing will be undertaken in The May Fair Hotel, together with viewing.  Members of our staff will be available to assist in any way.

On arrival you will be asked to Register and to provide proof of identity (such as passport, photo driving licence) and proof of address (such as a utility bill).  Commercial clients will be asked to provide a letterhead or business card.  You will also be asked how you intend paying for any purchases.

Sale Arrangements:

The arrangements for each sale will be published on our website and in the printed catalogues.  Please contact us if you have any queries.

Payment:

If you wish to take any purchases home with you on the day of the sale, full payment will be required before you may do so.  On the day of the sale, the only methods acceptable for payment will be cash (up to a maximum limit of £7,000.00 Sterling), debit card, or credit card up to £500.00 Sterling. 

For purchases where immediate payment is not possible, we will forward an invoice once the sale ends. This will include a quote for packing and shipping services provided by Mail Boxes Etc. (Romford). This will enable you to settle both your payment request and your MBE shipping quotation with a single payment. Should you wish to add shipping insurance, please contact Mail Boxes Etc. (Romford) directly at huxigang@mberomford.co.uk and they will be happy to assist you. Please note that shipment can only be made to the address registered with us.

Export/Import Regulations:

Any overseas client with a registered address outside the UK/EU who purchases items to which the UK Cultural Property Regulations may be applicable will be required to sign a waiver undertaking that they will apply for the appropriate Export Licence before removing the items from the UK.  We are able to assist in applying for Licences, on request and we will automatically apply for Licenses before shipping to any overseas address.  The processing of licences can be protracted.  Clients are asked to remember that deferrment of a Licence is not a ground to rescind the sale.  Overseas Buyers must also check for any restrictions on the import of items to their homeland.  TimeLine Auctions Ltd is not responsible for any matters arising from import controls.
