Buying at auction
Bidding during a Timed Online auction
These auctions don't have an auctioneer calling the bids. This auction is completely online and works with a so-called Timed-Online auction system. The auction will run for a few weeks and will end at the indicated time. All lots are shown during our viewing days at our location and in our online catalogue, along with images, estimates and starting prices.
Fill in the most you're willing to bid - and we'll bid intelligently for you, only bidding for you to meet the reserve or stay in the lead. Don't worry, your max bid stays secret and even the auctioneer can't see your maximum.
After creating an account, you can bid on the items until the indicated ending time. When someone places a bid in the last 5 minutes, the auction time will automatically be extended by 5 minutes. This way, other interested bidders have enough time to place a higher bid.
For this auction, it is not possible to bid in person in the saleroom. To bid using our website, you need to be a registered with us. (New registrations are processed and approved multiple times per hour and are possible up until one hour before the auction closes)
Every entered bid will be treated as an automatic bid, the computer will bid for you in increments of €5,- until your personal maximum bid has been reached. If somebody places a higher bid than your maximum bid, you will receive an email notification.
