Check out The Sale room.com (this is where dealers source 99% of their stock and typically mark it up by 100%) for local National and International auction houses, you can attend the sale and bid in person, (which can make for a fun day out) place an absentee bid or bid live on line. Remember your bid is a legal commitment to buy.
All auction houses charge a buyers premium of between 12.5 & 20% plus VAT, there is no VAT on "hammer price" remember to take this into account when bidding.
The golden rule is to set a limit for the lot(s) that you are interested in and stick to it ! If you don't win a particular piece don't worry, like busses another will be along soon.
