September 23rd 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 23rd onwards.

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

Our September Timed Online Auction will start on Wednesday, September 23rd at 1 pm GMT and begin closing from 1 pm GMT on Friday, September 25th

The September 23rd auction will be a 48-hour timed auction which will only be available online.

Timed auctions take place without an auctioneer calling the sale. Each lot can be bid on for a defined time period, in our case for our September auction 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.
