If you do not want to miss your chance of bidding, you can add bookmarks for lots you are interested in. The auctioneer will then be notified that a potential live bidder is available for these lots - of course without transferring any personal information. To add a bookmark, click on "Add to Bookmarks" on the respective lots' detail page. The bookmark list will also display a detailed overview for you to use as a referral during the auction.

Just a few hints for your successful participation:

  • Take your time to browse interesting offers prior to the auction.
  • Take notes of the lot numbers you would like to bid on, and decide on the highest price you are willing to pay.
  • You may place your bids prior to the auction and intercept during the live auction only if you are outbid.
  • If you have any questions, please contact the auction company in due time prior to the auction.
  • Please enter the live auction on time. Most auction companies adhere to their schedule strictly.
  • Do not hesitate too long when placing a bid to make sure your bids reach the auctioneer in time, even if you are on a slower connection.
