Love what you buy! Here's where you'll find all the tips you need to join our other Scammellists.

Scammells is a paradise for collectors, and anyone looking for a unique, timeless, or rare piece.

And all of our Auctions are online, in a safe, convenient and easy to use environment.  Our online auctions make searching, finding, and securing your perfect item easy and hassle-free. The Scammells App has been designed with buyers in mind, enabling you to search for items, create alerts, watch catalogued items, leave absentee bids, and most importantly, bid online. All this, from anywhere in the world.

You can also attend any of our “live” Auctions in person, and we look forward to seeing you in our crowd of eager Scammellists.

To Register for online bidding

Online registration gives you access to the online bidding room, allows you leave absentee bids, create watch lists and
assigns you a permanent number, yours for life. There is no need to register again, even if you attend one of our auctions in person.

The same registration gives you access to our free smart phone and tablet app (search Google Play Store and Apple App Store for Scammells).

Registration is free, and you only need a valid credit card. The card is used for verification only and you are not billed for your purchases.

Your credit card will be verified with a charge of $1, which is then returned instantly.  This protects you, us and our buyers from fraudulent bidders.

We do not have access to your credit card details, nor do we retain this information.  Auction Mobility uses secure third party merchant Stripe to manage this information.

Auction Terms and Conditions

We love what we do, and as such, you won’t get better auction service anywhere in Adelaide. As with most things though, there are rules and guidelines to auctions. By law, we are required to work within these rules, which then helps to ensure a better experience for you. We recommend having a read through our terms and conditions which include information on buyers premium, packaging and shipping, and transport and storage.
