HOW TO BID WITHIN AUSTRALIA?

AuctionsPlus allows potential purchasers to bid online without attending the sale, or provides an opportunity for those bidders at the sale who wish to maintain discretion in their bidding activity. Potential online buyers can log in via the AuctionsPlus website and observe the auction in real time, and place bids via the online auction. These bids are immediately transferred to a representative on site, who will raise their bid with the auctioneer. Interested persons can observe an AuctionsPlus online sale at any time through the ‘observer only’ portal.

Online bidding is available only to those who have registered with AuctionsPlus and GDL. Registration is free. Please register at least 48 hours prior to the sale.
