HOW TO BID AT OUR AUCTION
BIDDING AT AUCTION
Although we no long have in attendance bidding, our auction is conducted as a live online auction. Auctions start at 12PM EST on a Saturday, advertised several weeks before the sale. In addition to online bidding, we also have the option for telephone bidding or in house absentee bids or "left bids".
For buyers unable to participate live in the online auction or on the telephone, Vero Beach Auction, offers the option of leaving Absentee Bids. Absentee Bids work exactly as if the bidder were in the auction bidding up to a pre-determined price limit. This bid will be confidentially entered by the auction clerk. Our auctioneer 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 left bid, you will purchase the lot at the next increment. The completed and signed bid forms must be received by us no later than 4PM (EST) on the evening before the auction.
If you are the winning bidder, an invoice will be emailed to you within the next 2 days.
Vero Beach Auction catalogs are hosted at liveauctioneers.com. You can bid using a web browser live during auction sessions by either clicking on the “Bid Live Online” button on our website or registering at least three hours before the auction, or by registering directly at liveauctioneers.com.
The best way to ensure you win the lots you really want is to attend the auction in person, and we'd love to meet you, but when attending the auction in person is just not possible, bidding live online from the comfort of your home or office is a great alternative.
Interested in bidding on the telephone with a trained staff member? One of the most efficient and best ways to secure bidding is via telephone. Please fill out and email the completed form. It must be received no later than 4PM (EST) on the day before the auction. Upon registering, an experienced staff member will call you the day of the auction approximately five lots before yours is scheduled to be sold. They will communicate with you what bid the auctioneer is asking for and execute your bids at your discretion. If you are the winning bidder, an invoice will be emailed to you within the next 2 days.
