Yes, we do. Viewing takes place by appointment from 2 weeks before the auction until the day of the auction itself. Please see each auction for details of viewing dates, then contact us to make an appointment.

Our auctions are live online sales, and are held on the last Friday of every month at 1pm. Viewing is by appointment up to 2 weeks before the auction.

All SOLD vehicles are subjected to a HPI Equifax Vehicle Data Check. This service provides information on vehicles listed as Stolen or on the Outstanding Finance Register. Any vehicle discovered to have an undisclosed history in relation to any of these areas will be liable to rejection by the buyer and will result in the seller becoming liable for Buyers Premium, Sellers Commission and all reasonable expenses incurred by the buyer and Barons (Auctioneers) Ltd.

A standard charge of £10 + VAT is levied for this service. If you wish to avoid this charge you will be required to sign a disclaimer absolving Barons (Auctioneers) Ltd of any liability should a vehicle prove to have such undisclosed history.

VAT is only applied to the buyer's premium, not the total sale price. For example, if a car sold for a hammer price of £10,000, the buyer's premium would be £1,000 with £200 VAT, giving a total of £11,200.
