Catalogue Now Out

As preparations have been underway over the last few weeks for the September catalogue we have now had it delivered and have been posting to people this week. For the September edition we chose a fairly autumn colour for the front cover and some of the pianos we have in the auction are a first time for ourselves.

The June Auction on Saturday 28th

The BPA team had a very busy week last week with the June auction being in the foresight. All the pianos were delivered into the auction rooms and set up by the very reliable Gilberts piano removers who we work closely with at each auction.

 The makes included Steinway, Bechstein, Bluthner, Schimmel, Yamaha, Kawai, Kemble, Chappell, Petrof, Young Chang, Marshall & Rose and many more.

The day was very successful with some very good prices realised on pianos, and some prices that still goes to prove that bargains are obtained in the auction room!

Lot No. 3 was a year 2000 Yamaha C3 with matching duet stool shown here in the middle of the picture. The instrument was in pristine condition and could be considered show room quality. When the hammer fell the piano reached £7,000.00

We caught a photo of Alex Borg on the admin team who was arranging & dealing with paperwork post auction, and as usual looking very smart.

 A run of uprights in the auction rooms; Kemble, Yamaha, Young Chang & Yamaha. A Bluthner can be seen in the far background and the cheek of another piano on the left…do you know what make? ( You can comment below)

Image

It was nice to see new faces in the auction room as well as reliable regular customers who buy at each auction.

The next auction is in September and consignments are already on the way in so keep a keen eye on the website and on our Facebook.

Is the Thought of Bidding at Auction Daunting?

Well, if you have never attended and/or bided at an auction then it most definitely will do. It is that simple fear of the unknown, the hesitation of a situation you don’t know the outcome of. But don’t worry; you won’t mistakenly place a bid by itching your nose,coughing, winking or scratching your head!

A Bidder at Britannia Piano Auctions in Manchester UK

There is still a school of thought that auctions are a black art and a complicated process. Some people believe that it can be almost an ‘old boys club’. Such views are very dated and untrue.

There are many regular auction goers who get to know each others faces, people who are interested in the same pianos will talk about instruments at the auction and share their opinions with each other. It can be almost a social event for some people. However, when it comes to the actual auction the auctioneer treats every bidder in the room equally.

Regular faces working their way round the auction room looking at pianos

If on the day you find the process of bidding yourself too daunting then Britannia Piano Auctions will have bidders available who will talk with you; understand what piano(s) you are interested in and the maximum you are willing to bid up to. In the auction at your request they will stand with you and do the physical bidding.
