For buyers unable to participate live in the salesroom or on the telephone, we offer the option of leaving absentee bids. Absentee bids work exactly as if the bidder were in the salesroom bidding up to his or her own predetermined price limit. A trained staff member will bid on your behalf alternately against other bidders until the bidding ends. In the event that the other bidders drop out before reaching the full amount of your absentee bid, you will purchase the lot at the next increment. The Online Absentee Bid Form is available on our website, at the back of our printed catalogue and through the Customer Service Department.
