After The Auction


Buyers who successfully purchase a lot will pay the hammer price (the final bid at which the lot was sold) as well as a 20% buyer’s premium and sales tax if applicable of each lot.

After the auction the buyer will receive an invoice detailing the hammer price, buyer’s premium and any other charges. The invoice will be made out to the buyer with the name and address used to register to bid; this information cannot be altered after the sale has been made.

Payment will be accepted during or after the auction and must be received within 7 days of the sale. Please note there is a 5% late fee for all invoices not paid within thirty (30) days following the auction sale date. Lots sold for $10,000 USD or less may be paid by debit card, credit card, or money order, with credit card payments subject to a 3% transaction fee. Lots sold for over $10,000 USD may be paid by wire transfer, money order or cashier's check. For lots purchased through our website, there is a credit/debit card limit of $10,000 USD. For payments over this value, please contact Waterford's directly to arrange payment.

Collecting your purchases.

Items purchased will be available for collection following Waterford’s receipt of a fully cleared payment. Buyers who pay by money order or debit card may be eligible to collect their goods immediately after the sale. Items that are not collected within thirty days of the sale will be subject to storage fees. If it is not possible for you to collect your purchases within thirty days of the sale please consult our 'Terms of Sale' for more information on storage fees.

Purchasing unsold lots.

Lots that are not successfully sold may be available for purchase after the auction. Unsold lots will be available at the lowest possible price on a first come, first served basis.
