April 21st Timed Auction

Whilst you cannot place a commission bid on a timed auction, you can place bids on any lot from 1.00 pm Wednesday 21st onward.

Register with to bid on our March auction. This auction is a timed auction and bids can only be placed once the auction begins.

Our April Timed Online Auction will start on Wednesday, April 21st at 1 pm GMT and begin closing from 1 pm GMT on Friday, April 23rd.

Timed auctions take place without an auctioneer calling the sale. Each lot can be bid on for a defined time period, in this case for our online auctions, it will be over 48 hours. 

The lots can be bid on at any point until the end of the auction. Once the auction starts to close, bidding will stop on lots in 30-second intervals. To avoid bid sniping, last-second bids will extend the closing time of the lot by another 5 minutes.

At the end of this period, the bidder who has submitted the highest bid will be successful in purchasing the lot, provided the bid exceeds the reserve price. You will see the current bid on each item and be notified if a bid higher than yours is placed onto your interested lot.
