Telephone Bidding If you would like to bid by phone, you should register in advance by providing your name, address and contact details.

On the day of the auction, we will telephone you about three lots before your lot is announced. Once bidding begins, we will talk you through as the bids progress and ask you at each stage if you wish to continue. This will carry on until you are successful, or tell us that you want to stop bidding.

Absentee Bidding You are welcome to place an absentee bid, which we can make on your behalf during the auction. All you need to do is complete a bidding form specifying the item you wish to bid on and your maximum bid. This gives us written permission to act as your representative to try and secure the item at the lowest possible price, subject to any reserve and interest from other bidders.
