North Country Auctions (formerly Ford Country Auctions) is a boutique auction business based in north Northumberland. We hold INTERIORS & COLLECTABLES sales at select locations in northern England and southern Scotland every four weeks or so. We like to offer an electic assortment of antiques, collectables, art and attractive furnishings sourced from established clients down-sizing and uptrading or from new clients clearing family properties.
North Country Auctions does not offer Online Internet Bidding at its auctions - we belive auctions should be Real and Local without pandering to the World Wide Web. After all, who are you really bidding against when the auctioneer is running you up against the internet?
We offer around 150 lots at the auctions which usually take place on a Saturday afternoon from 2pm (with viewing on the morning of the sale from 10am). We aim to make the auctions informal and interesting but we understand that as vendors you want to achieve the best possible price so a serious eye is kept on vendors' interests....
COMMISSION CHARGED BY NORTH COUNTRY AUCTIONS
Buyer's commision is 15% of the hammer price. We are not obliged to charge VAT at this point.
Seller's commission is 15% in most cases but the rate is negotiable for premium pieces with a value of £300 or more.
Please note that unlike most other auction businesses WE DO NOT IMPOSE CHARGES FOR STORAGE, CATALOGUING, PROMOTION, INSURANCE OR FOR RESALE OF UNSOLD LOTS. In this way we ensure that you get more of what you wanted - a good return on your valuables!
