How the auction works as a seller

We are aiming to have an auction approximately once a month. one the Old Modern shop stop is cleared we will be receiving goods on consignment for upcoming auctions.

Commission is  charged for sales at 16.5% inclusive fo GST. No hidden charges, the commission is fees you as a seller will be charged for selling with us, no lotting, photography payment fees. 16.5% is all inclusive.

Drop-offs can be made by appointment only until standard auction room hours are established. 


There are costs if you want us to come to you and collect. there is a $50 call out fee to assess goods you would like to consign to the auction and have us give you approximate values. this will be waived if consigning more than $1000 worth of goods. if you need bulky goods collected its $60 and hour for one man and the van if you will help load, $90 with 2 staff.

All auctions will be open for Pre-bidding online from the date listed live, you are able to be at the stated increments one click at a time or leave a maximum bid. this maximum bid is private to you as a buyer and can not be seen by others or in house by the auctions room staff.

if computers are not your thing you are able to come down to the auction rooms and bid live in person. there is limited seats available in rooms so mainly standing room only. Absentee bids can be left with the auctioneer as well if preferred'

NO telephone bids here sorry. only if you bring your own representative to the auction and have them bid on your behalf
