  • Simulcast or a Live/Online Auction

An online auction that takes place during a live auction with an online operator relaying the bids to the auctioneer. These auctions are a cataloged auction and usually follow the lots in order.

Online Auctions

The bidding is taken online with a set closing time. Most online auctions have a staggered lot closing meaning that lots close in order with a set time between each lot. Please familiarize yourself with each particular auction terms and conditions before participating.

Absentee Bidding

With an online auction, or in person, customers may place bids in advance that will be used to advance bids on their behalf.
