Terms & Conditions

Before taking part in any of HOLTS auctions please first download and read our terms and conditions: Terms & Conditions

Privacy policy

If you wish to read about how HOLTS Auctioneers handles your private information and details please read our Privacy Policy.


If the items consigned are licensable, please inform your Firearms Licensing department that these items are now with us, pending entry into the next appropriate auction. This is purely an informal notification to keep your firearms department informed of the whereabouts of your firearms. Official notification and the removal of the firearm(s) from your license will take place after they have been sold. You will receive a reminder to do this on your post-auction settlement statement.

Auction Procedure

Items consigned will be processed and entered into the most suitable of our three auction platforms; a quarterly ‘live’ auction, its counterpart silent auction or one of our monthly online only auctions.

You will receive a pre-auction advice by email or post which will confirm the items entered for auction, their respective Lot numbers and reserve figure (if applicable). Our minimum Lot fee is £15.00 (plus VAT) per lot so under some circumstances, lower value items may be grouped together to make a Lot commercially viable.

Whilst we endeavor to enter all items into the next available auction, under some circumstances consignments may be spread over more than a single auction cycle.

After the auction you will receive a post auction advice informing you of the results of auction. This is now the time to notify your Licensing authorities of firearms now sold.

Unsold Items

Any items remaining unsold at the close of a live or sealed bid auction will automatically be listed on our website for a period of two weeks under ‘buy it now’ conditions at the agreed reserve level.

If any items remain unsold from the live auction after this period, you will be contacted to discuss the potential options with regard to re-entry or return.

Unsold items from silent or online auctions will automatically be re-entered into the next auction with a 25% reduction in estimate and reserve unless we receive specific written instructions to the contrary
