Hi,
      I watched the auction but didn't bid. If you don't get a response, it may be worth a try of giving your contact details to Gorringes to pass onto the buyer. Did you buy anything?

I might be able to help.... and just to be accurate, it is 25% plus VAT = 30% commission  :o.

Strewth, glad I didn't bid at this auction, that's got to be the highest buyers commission I've seen!

Hi Ray,
            not quite but enough !!! They get 25% of hammer price and pass 5% to the government from the buyer . They also get 15% from the seller and send another 3% to the government.

So Gorringes pocket 40% and the government get a further 8%. The poor old seller gets 82% of the hammer or only 63.1% of what the buyer pays !!!
