  • We require a cash deposit of $5,000 before giving you a buyer number.
  • You will receive a receipt for your deposit. If you do not purchase anything, your deposit will be returned in full upon presentation of your receipt.


  • If you choose to write a personal check, we require a letter from your bank on bank letterhead before giving you a buyer number. A letter from your bank showing your account balance is not a letter of guarantee. Your bank letter must state:
  • That your bank will irrevocably honor or guarantee your check, OR...
  • Your bank will finance any purchase up to a stated dollar amount.

Wire Transfer

  • In cases of wire transfer, we require a $10,000 deposit before giving you a buyer number.
  • If you do not purchase anything, your deposit will be wire transferred back to your account the day after the auction.

Cashier's Check

  • Your cashier's check must be made payable to Taylor & Martin for a minimum of $5,000 or the amount you plan to spend before you are given a buyer number. We may ask to hold your cashier's check until after the auction.
  • If your total purchase is less than the amount of your cashier's check, Taylor & Martin will write you a check for the difference.
