Telephone Bidding 

Should you prefer to bid by telephone, we can call you directly from the auction room and place bids on your behalf, working in conjunction with the auctioneer. To avoid any disappointments, we recommend considering an absentee bid as well. To register for a telephone bid, please reach out to us for assistance via mail, telephone or WhatsApp.

Absentee Bidding 

Leaving an absentee bid is one of the simplest ways to bid, especially if you cannot attend the live auction. If your bid exceeds the seller’s minimum reserve, the auctioneer will strive to secure the item for you at the lowest feasible price. To register for a absentee bid, please reach out to us for assistance via mail, telephone or WhatsApp.

Note: An absentee bid submitted in advance takes precedence over an identical bid placed in person or via telephone.
