Bidding

If you plan to bid in person, you can sign up on the day of the auction to receive a paddle. We also offer absentee, telephone and live online bidding. See below for instructions on how to leave absentee or telephone bids through our website. 

Live online bidding is available via LiveAuctioneers or Invaluable. Note that you will have to register with these sites first and then supply a credit card in order to get approved separately with our auction. We recommend you do this at least a day in advance, as we usually get many last minute requests.

 

Create an Account:

If you have not done so already, the first step to submitting an absentee or telephone bid through our website is to create a client account. Click “Register” in the top right-hand corner of the page. Fill out the required fields and click “Send” (located at the bottom of the form). You will receive a confirmation email when your registration is approved. Once your registration is approved, you will be able to submit telephone or absentee bids.

 

Submit a Bid:

Make sure that you are logged into your account. From the homepage, click “View Catalogue” to browse and bid the current sale. You can also browse or search the catalogue from the “Auctions” tab under “Auction Schedule” or “Catalogue Search”. Scroll through the catalogue. When you see an item that you would like to bid on, click “BID & TRACK”.

If you would like to submit a telephone bid, check the box (located just below the image). If you wish to be called on a phone number that is different from the number that you registered with, you can change the phone number in the “Telephone” field. Click “I agree to the Terms & Conditions. Place my bid” to submit your bid. If you would like to leave a safety bid, please contact us once your bid has been confirmed. The easiest way to add a safety bid to your telephone bid is to reply directly to your confirmation email.

If you would like to submit an absentee bid, click “BID & TRACK” on the desired lot. Fill in the amount in the “Enter Your Bid” field. Please note that any special symbols or characters will not be accepted. Click “I agree to the Terms & Conditions. Place my bid” to submit your bid. You will receive a confirmation email once we process your bid(s). Click “Back” to continue bidding.

 

Submit Multiple Bids:

If you wish to leave multiple bids, you can do so by accessing your Bid Sheet. The bid sheet can be accessed when you are on a specific lot. Above the lot image, there is a prompt that reads, “If you wish to leave multiple bids on this sale click here”. Clicking this will take you to the Bid Sheet.

When you have completed the Bid Sheet, scroll to the bottom and click “Confirm your bids”. Review your list of bids and click “Place Bids”. Your bids will be confirmed as soon as they are processed.
