Our Sales

McCubbing & Redfern hold antique & collectable auctions every third Wednesday each month in Wells at 1.00 p.m. We are happy to accept a single item, a collection or an entire house clearance. We can collect your goods or you can bring them in to us.

We auction items on behalf of private vendors, solicitors, estate agents, antique dealers, and charities. We offer valuations for auction, insurance and probate, and provide an in-house collection and delivery service.

Our sale dates are advertised in the Antiques Trade Gazette, Mid Somerset Journal, Western Gazette, Western Daily Press, the Blackmore Vale, Antique Explorer, Antiques Magazine & What's it Worth?

Our viewing days are the day preceding the sale (10.00 a.m. to 7 p.m.), the Monday (10.00 a.m. to 5 p.m.) and on the morning of the sale from 9.30 a.m. There is a limited amount of parking on our forecourt but further parking and washroom facilities are also available across the road from the Wells Auction Rooms.

Buying at Auction

Catalogues are available at the office and staff are available to answer any questions you may have.

To bid you need to register with the office who will give you a bidding number unique to yourself. This bidding number can be written on the back of your catalogue or you may be given a buyer card.

You can use the same number whenever you visit the saleroom. If you forget your bidding number, the office can remind you of it, there’s no need to register again. If you change any of your contact details simply let the office know the changes.

Please ensure your bids are made clear to the auctioneer as the sale is progressing. If you are successful in your bid please hold up your bidding number so the auctioneer can record your purchase.

You pay the price you bid plus a buyer’s premium stated in the catalogue. VAT at the standard rate of 20% is applied to this premium.

Our payment terms are displayed in the auction rooms and at the office.

We accept cash, BACS and credit/debit cards. No lots may be removed until payment is made.

Collection of Lots

Once you have paid for your purchases the office will issue an invoice which you can take to a member of staff in the auction room for collection. No items are to be removed from cabinets. To minimise disruption to the auctioneer we ask that you collect your lots at the end the sale. We appreciate this is not always possible and will assist if possible. We supply an in-house delivery service at minimal cost. We are also happy to post items to you at the purchaser's expense.

Selling at Auction

We accept single items, collections, or house clearances and will give you an honest and expert appraisal of what your goods may realise at auction. Please contact us on 01749 678099 for further details, or e-mail admin@mccubbingandredfern.co.uk

We charge a seller's premium of 15% or a minimum lot charge, whichever is the greater. VAT at the standard rate of 20% is applied to the premium. This cost is deducted from the hammer price achieved at auction.

You can agree a 'reserve' value on your items with us if you need a certain price to be reached. We do not charge for reserve prices, for valuations or for internet/catalogue images.

Insurance is optional at £1 per lot (minimum) or at 1% of lower estimate.

We pay all sale proceeds within 7-14 days following the sale, normally by cheque. Immediate payment can be supplied if cleared payment has been received by the auction house.

Our terms and conditions of sale are displayed in the auction room,
at the office or in the sale catalogue.
