Lots - Due to the age of the items, Lots are sold on an “as-is” basis, subject to faults, imperfections and errors of descriptions. Photographs are provided of Lots for identification purposes only – photographs may not produce a true reflection of the colour or high-light any imperfections. You are advised to examine any lot prior to bidding. Electrical Lots may not comply to current statutory requirements and are offered for sale as “display purposes” only.
Condition Reports – are provided at a bidder’s request. This forms part of the service offered on behalf of the Vendor of the Lots by Morgan Evans & Co Ltd. In providing a Condition Report we assume no responsibility to you for any error or mis-statement or omission from the description of a Lot contained in a Condition Report.
Bidding – All persons wishing to participate in a Morgan Evans & Co Ltd auction should be registered with us before bidding. There are three ways for you to bid. In person, by leaving a commission bid or by telephone. Bids are made at your own risk and we cannot accept liability for our failure to receive and/or place bids.

Commission Bid/Absentee Bidding – Forms are available to download from www.morganevans.com website or can be collected from the Saleroom. Forms can be scanned and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. It is in your interest to return your absentee bidding form to us as soon as possible – if bidders submit identical bids the earliest bid will take precedence. It is your responsibility to confirm that your bidding form has been received at our office.
Telephone Bidding – complete and return a telephone bidding form, being sure to have checked the Lot numbers you wish to bid on. On receipt of a completed form a member of staff will telephone the primary telephone number provided on the form and will talk you through the procedure and place any bids you require on the specific Lots.
