UPA83 Auction Schedule:

Announcement: Our Live Bidding is no longer hosted on The Sale Room, we are using Easy Live Auction to host our Live Bidding for all lots estimated at £1,000 GBP+ (see details below).

2nd September : Catalogue Available

5th October (5pm) : Bidding Closes

6th October (5pm) : Live Bidding for lots estimated at £1,000 GBP+ via Easy Live Auction. To participate, please register at Easy Live Auction by 2pm on 6th October. Please note, we will try to approve registration requests placed after this time but we cannot guarantee this.

NB: IMPORTANT Please note the LIVE BIDDING SERVICE IS COMMISSION FREE provided you pay the FLAT FEE of £3 when registering to bid with UPA. We regret that we cannot subsidise this service. We STRONGLY urge colleagues (collectors and dealers) to pay the minimal £3 flat fee at registration.

8th October (2pm onwards) : Results/Invoices will be issued to all bidders, regardless of success.

8th October (6pm) : Unsold Lots will be available to purchase. Please note, although you can request and pay for unsold lots straight away, please be aware that we are unlikely to commence shipping Late Sales orders until Monday 18th October at the earliest. Our procedures are such that auction bidders who provide payment details before the closing date are processed first in bidder number order; we then start shipping goods for those auction bidders who send payment in response to their invoice. Late Sales orders are processed and shipped after completion of the above. We regret we cannot make exceptions in order to expedite shipping Late Sales orders as we believe this would be unfair to auction bidders.

11th October : Shipping Commences. As noted above, bidders who provided payment details before the closing date are processed first. Please be aware that social distancing guidelines may still be in operation which may affect staffing levels and shipping times.

1st November (10am) : Late Sales Closes. Any remaining unsold lots will be reoffered with a reduced estimate in auction UPA84 in January.
