And there you go, all the banging on about in person auctions..... someone holds one and it's 'too far'.

It would appear to be a no-win situation, and in such a niche world you aren't going to get many 'having a go'.

If there was a particular machine I wanted I'd be there. Years back I attended the Salisbury one in that direction and came back with a few. For me it's a good way to go for a look. I think it's excellent that live auctions are back so it's a win win.

Doesn’t matter where it is held in the country, not everyone will be happy. The key here on this is % rates, so good on Cottees… Sets a precedent IMO ;-) and you can attend if you choose… Maybe other auctions houses can be urged to change as well, including up north. :cool:

Didn't another auction house have a number of machines consigned @ 10% buyers commission, fairly recently, but only on the machines? I think if I was consigning 30 odd machines to my local auction I would be negotiating some similar kind of deal to drive bids up and reduce my commission, especially in the current climate.

I think the buyers % is 18% plus VAT.
And a few of the allwins look like they are similar to the ones in the Spicers sale.
