How to buy and sell



Attending the rooms and raising your hand when the lot that interests you comes on sale and, if there are various bids, continue bidding following the auctioneer’s instructions.

If you are the winner, you will be given a form that you must fill out with your details and sign.


They may be presented in advance and up to 5pm on the day of the auction. The form may be found at the rooms, in the catalogue and on the web, or send a mail to [email protected].

Besides including the personal details that are requested, on it you must specify the maximum offer and Ansorena personnel will win it for you at the lowest possible price, depending on the existing offers.


If the lot that interests you has a starting price of over 300 euro, you can request that a personnel member phone you at the time of auction of the said lot.

For this, you need to fill out a form (see offers in writing) and present it up to 14.00 on the day of the auction. A telephone bidding request implies that the starting price will be covered, where there are no other offers, and even if a telephone connection cannot be established, the lot will be sold to you.



To learn the outcome of your bid, you can call us by phone (91 5328515) from the day after the auction.

If you have made an offer in writing, you will be sent a letter over the days following the auction.


You can pay by bank transfer, cheque or in cash. Credit cards are not accepted as payment for lots acquired at auction; the payment period is for one week after the same has taken place. The total price is that of the winning bid plus 22 % including VAT.

For any matter in relation to payment, you may contact:
