Buyers

T2 auctions provide trade buyers with an efficient and reliable means of purchasing instruments and bows at fair and competitive prices.

All items can be examined in advance of the sale at our public viewings in New York. Detailed descriptions, photographs and condition reports are available online for all lots. Our staff are happy to assist you with your inquiries.

The system of online bidding is easy, convenient and allows buyers to bid discreetly on their computer, smartphone or tablet.

Reserve Price

Some lots at T2 are sold subject to a reserve. The reserve is a confidential minimum price agreed by T2 and the consignor, below which the lot will not be sold. The reserve will never be higher than the opening bid amount.

Buyer’s Premium

A premium will be added to the final bid price for each lot. This premium is equal to 20% of the hammer price.

First in, Last out, Take 2%

Be the first AND the last bidder on a certain lot and you’ll pay a reduced buyer’s premium of 18%.

Payment

Payment must be made within seven days of receiving T2’s invoice. Payment is accepted in any of the following: cash, check, cashier’s check, wire transfer, and credit card. Personal checks must clear before purchased lots will be released. A service fee of 3% will apply to credit card transactions.

Any items remaining unpaid 15 days after the sale may incur a late payment fee of 3% of the total purchase price of each unpaid item. Please see the Buyer’s Auction Payments section of our Terms of Use for more information.
