For many auction-world newcomers, it can be difficult to walk into an auction and feel comfortable. So to put you completely at ease, here’s a breakdown on how an auction works and how our auction process specifically unfolds.
The very first step in the auction process is registering. Registration is completely free of cost and obligation and is required in order to bid. For our auctions, registrations takes place at the auction site, we encourage you to attend at the starting time of the preview.
The preview is your time to browse our inventory of over 200 pieces of fine art and over 250 pieces of fine jewelry. Walk around, take it all in and mark those items that would you like to see auctioned with a sticker. (We’ll give those to you before this part of the auction process starts.)
Since our live auctions work on a request-only basis, we use these stickers to determine which items will make it to the block and which ones won’t. This greatly speeds up the auction process.
Once the auction begins, it’s completely up to you at to which items you bid on. We accept all forms of payment and can also arrange for delivery or same-day pick up. (Just ask about our delivery services prior to the auction process.)
