Buying at Auction

There are a number of ways you can buy items during an auction:

LIVE AUCTIONS:  You can attend auctions and bid live.  After registering, you will be given a paddle or bid card with your bidder number on it.

ABSENTEE BIDS:  These bids are placed with the auctioneer who will bid on your behalf up until the time that you are either the high bidder or another bidder offers a higher bid above your maximum bid.  Auctioneers do not start bids on a lot using your maximum bid.  

LIVE / ONLINE SIMULCAST AUCTIONS: These auctions are very popular and offer a buyer the chance to bid live  from anywhere in the world.  Auctions such as these have both a live audience "in-house"  and a live internet simulcast.  Registration is required to participate in online bidding.

ONLINE ONLY AUCTIONS:  Timed internet auctions begin and end at a specified time.  These auctions also require you to register before you can bid.
