Bidder’s Guide

In Person and Online

If you come to buy at the Auction House, we will create an account for you in our system and give you a bidding number. With that, you can bid in person, leave a bid/absentee bid, or use it for phone bidding.

If you bid online through Live Auctioneers or Invaluable/Auction Zip, you will register in their system. You can bid in advance but on the day of auction, we open live bidding from the floor. You can counter bid online. Please review the procedures with the respective website so you can win. The systems will send you an invoice and we will send follow up copies.
