Absentee bids are accepted on any day at any time prior to the start of auction. We will execute your bid at auction against other bids as though your were actually at the auction.
Telephone Bidding- If you can't make it to our auction, but want to bid live, we offer telephone bidding.

We will call you when the items that you are interested in come up for auction so that you can bid live with one of our friendly employees via your phone.

TIPS FOR NEW BUYERS
If you are new to buying at auction, here are a few tips and some auction etiquette to help you buy like a pro!
If there is any confusion with your bid or the sale price, please speak up immediately. An auctioneer can resale an item if he knows about a problem right away. Once the auction is complete the sale must stand. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. The office staff and floor crew will be happy to explain anything to you. However, once the auction begins, please refrain from asking questions to the auctioneer or the clerk sitting next him. Their focus is essential to a smooth running auction.
GOOD LUCK AND ENJOY THE SALE!
