When you wish to bid, signal in an obvious way to the auctioneer. Holding up your buyer’s number is the most visible and reliable method. If you wish to cease bidding indicate again in a definite manner, i.e. Shake your head. Quaid Auctioneers employ experienced auctioneers who can differentiate between voluntary and unconscious movements. If your bid is successful hold up your buyer’s number so that the auctioneer can read it clearly and record your purchase.

Absentee Bidding

Quaid Auctioneers provide an Absentee Bid Service for all our auctions if you are unable to register through our online platform. Download our absentee bidder form, fill in all your details or come to our viewing day and complete an absentee bid form. All absentee bids must be in prior to 8am on auction day.

Multiple Items

If a lot has more than one item listed, the lot is sold on a per-each basis with the highest bidder for that lot usually given the option to take one or more at that bid price, the under bidders then have the opportunity to purchase the items at the same bid price. Underbidders will generally be given the first opportunity to purchase the remaining lots, so if you do not bid you may miss out.
