Start Simulator for Liveauction

ATTENTION!!! The simulator does not record any bids - you can try out everything!


For some auctions you will need a special registration to participate. Registration needs to be completed at least 24 hours before the auction starts.

Please note:

To not miss bidding on a lot if you will be unavailable at the time of the Live Auction, you can "put your name down" on a lot. This will tell the Auctioneer that there is an internet bid. The Virtual Auctioneer will then .act as your agent. during the live auction. This can be done easily with a click of a button when reviewing the auction lots. In this way, you will also receive a list of all lots you are interested in bidding on, or watching. This can be very helpful when following the auction live.

We suggest that you review the auction lots as soon as possible, make notes for bid day, or "put your name down" on lots that are of interest. We hope to see you on the virtual auction floor.
