Can I place an absentee bid? 

Yes, we normally allow absentee bids on items of higher value.  You must register and place the absentee bid for the auction a minimum of 24 hours prior to its start.  In some cases, a deposit may be required so be prepared to write a check or make a wire transfer for 25% of your bid.  When we place your bid it will be at the auctioneer’s discretion and will be placed in a competitive manner.  Please keep in mind that depending on the bid increment it is possible that your bid may not be the winning bid even if the item sells for the same amount.  Example – If you leave an absentee bid for $1000 and because of the bidding we have you in at $900 and the next competitive bid is for $1000 from another buyer you will not be the winner.
