Both foreign and national buyers who can’t be present during the auction, can bid by telephone or bid live online on our website or through one of our third party partners. As we can not guarantee the proper functioning of available communication channels, we strongly suggest to also send in a back-up absentee bid, or book a telephone line and arrange for online bidding simultaneously.
Foreign buyers will need to identify themselves in full at least 24 hours before the auction. If necessary, a bank guarantee or deposit will be requested which will serve as a guarantee in case of non-payment. Failure to provide requested bank guarantees or deposits may result in the non-acceptance of any bids.
The auctioneer can not be held responsible in case of disfunctioning of the available communication channels and any consequences related to this, nor from unavailability on the bidders’ side.
Professionals are required to identify themselves as such and disclose their business details when bidding or requesting a bid number.
In case of non-payment the lots may be put up for sale in a later sale. The non-paying bidder will be obliged to reimburse the difference in case of a lower hammer price, according to Belgian law. He will not have any claims over the possible difference above the original hammer price. He will also need to cover all costs related to the re-offering.
Every buyer is supposed to know and comply with the import regulations of his or her country of destination. The auction house can not be held responsable for any problems arising with the export of certain goods, be they legal or illegal in any country.
Every buyer and seller is supposed to know the current regulations regarding the sale or exposition of animals or wildlife species, such as, but not limited to, ivory, minerals, gems, rhino horn, bone, taxidermy, ... but also for works of art partially consisting of such material. The auction house denies any responsability in regard to possible seizure, destruction or penalties imposed by Belgian or foreign governments. The full 100% responsability for any issue arising lies with the consignor-seller and/or bidder-buyer.
By taking part in our sales any person agrees to these condition, be it directly through us or through one of our partners which allow bidders to bid with us.
Every participant to our sales is supposed to be aware of and comply with these conditions.
