When you like to bid online we offer two options. Making bids in advance of the Auction (absentee bids) and Live Bid. With Live Bid you bid per increment (as stated in our terms and conditions) live during the Auction.
Heritage Auctions Europe offers you the online way of leaving absentee bids on its own online bid platform. You enter your secret maximum bid in the online platform. Now you don't have to mail, fax or email your bidsheet to us. That prevents errors and saves a lot of time, your bids are processed immediately. You know if you are high bidder at that moment right away. When you are outbid by another absentee bid, you will be notified so you can chose to increase your bid or go for a different lot.
You can enter your bids until shortly before the Auciton begins. All you have to register, after an employee of Heritage Auctions Europe verified your account you will receive login details by email and after you log in with you credentials you can start entering your bids. It's that easy!
