To register you need a valid ID (driving license, identity card or passport) and the tax code if the customer is of Italian nationality.

EXHIBITION OF LOTS

To meet the needs of customers, Bado and Mart Auctions make available the viewing and display of the lots for sale, of variable duration and during the opening hours of our office, so as to provide anyone with the opportunity to check the quality of the goods offered for sale.

If you are unable to personally view the lots, we are at your disposal to receive additional information and additional photographs in order to ascertain yourself the state of conservation and the quality of the works you are interested in.

 

HOW TO PARTICIPATE

Participation in the hall: You can take part in person in our sales. By registering you will get a participation number (paddle). Registration can be made at any time and even at a distance by completing the appropriate form and sending it via email or fax, accompanied by a copy of an identity document.

Live participation: our auctions are transmitted in real time on our site. In this way you can follow the progress of the awards and, after registering, you can make your offers directly as if you were present in the room. In addition to our site, our auction sales are also supported by other online portals such as: LiveAuctioneers, Invaluable, Druout Digital and Auction.fr. Registration is required to participate in the sale through these portals.

Web offer (Absentee Bid): a simpler and faster way to make your offers is to register on our site and place an offer, or more offers, on the lots of interest through the online catalog.

Telephone participation: if you cannot be present in the room, if requested, our staff will call you during the auction for the lots you will have indicated in the specific form. It is advisable to send this form preferably 24 hours before the start of the sales session via email to info@badoemart.it or by fax to 049 8755317.

In the event that the offers arrive out of time, Bado and Mart Auctions will not take any responsibility for the failure to register them. It is the purchaser's right to indicate on the offer form the maximum amount he would be willing to pay for the lot he is interested in, so that, in the event of line problems, it is possible for the auction house appointee however, defend the buyer's offer to purchase.

Written bids: by indicating in the appropriate form the lots you are interested in and the maximum sum you intend to offer (excluding rights), the auction house in the person of the auctioneer will raise on your behalf. It is advisable to send this form preferably 24 hours before the start of the sales session via email to info@badoemart.it or via fax to 0498755317. In the case of two written offers of the same amount for the same lot, this will be awarded to the customer whose offer was received first.
