How it works

Have a look at the catalogue

How can I consult the catalogue ?

Click here, request a printed version of the catalogue at or visit us during the viewing days.

The catalogue is available about four weeks before the auction on our site, as well as the platforms Drouot and Invaluable.

Will I receive notification of viewing and auction days?

Have a look at our calendar, or subscribe to our newsletter to stay informed about our viewing and auction days.

You can also use handy key words to manage alerts in order to be notified when items from your field of interest will be presented.

Remember to, if possible, use keywords in multiple languages (Dutch, French, English), as descriptions are also trilingual.


How can I place a bid?

  • In the auction room, with a buyers’ number received upon arrival.
  • By bidform, sent to us by mail or e-mail until 24 hours before the start of the auction.
  • By placing a bid through the catalogue on our website, after registration with log-in, until 24 hours before the start of the auction.
  • Online live-bidding via Invaluable (registration mandatory, before or during the auction)
  • By live-bidding after registration with Drouot Digital and subscribing to the auction until 2 hours before the start of the auction. Don’t forget to subscribe for each separate auction day if you want to live bid during both auction days.


When will I receive my statement?

Following a successful bid, you will receive an account statement, showing the hammer price per lot, plus the premium (28% of the hammer price; 30% via the platforms Drouot Digital and Invaluable), and eventually the resale tax, if applicable, at a hammer price of € 2.000 or more, only for original art and if the author died less than 70 years ago.

Legislation and duty of discretion

We work in complete discretion. In application of the law against money laundering and the funding of terrorism, we as auctioneers are lawfully bound to ask you for a copy of your identity card. This without fiscal consequences for you as a buyer and taking into account the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the deontological code of the Royal Belgian-Luxembourg Chamber of Auction Houses.


How can I pay?

  • Cash to a maximum of € 3.000,00 (saldo by bancontact, creditcard or bank transfer)
  • By bancontact
  • By creditcard
  • By bank transfer to
    BE49 0017 8987 0571
  • By check with bank guarantee addressed to Arenberg Auctions n.v. (plus collection costs if necessary)

Collecting acquisitions or shipment

When can I pick up my purchased works?

  • During the auction, after payment
  • In the week after the auction, from Tuesday to Friday, 9 am to 5 pm.

Can the purchased works be shipped?

Each shipment occurs at the risk and expense of the buyer (packaging, shipping and insurance) and after payment of the total amount of the billed invoice.

For shipments in Belgium, we usually work with bpost. For European shipments we prefer TNT, and FedEx for extra-European destinations.
