Absentee Bidding


Absentee bidding is the act of placing a bid on an item that you are interested in purchasing in the event you cannot attend an auction.

Allied Auctioneers & Associates welcome absentee bids.

  • We try to accommodate customers unable to attend the live auction.
  • It is our policy to accept absentee bids, but there will be a five percent (5%) buyer’s premium added if you successfully win the bid to compensate for the extra handling of the items.
  • All items that have absentee bids left on them will be clearly identifiable by colored stickers.
  • A staff member will bid on behalf of the absentee bidder.
  • In the event an item with a left bid is overlooked or missed, the auction company or any of its employees are not held responsible.

Allied Auctioneers & Associates tries to accommodate all customers whether attending the auction or leaving an absentee bid. We believe the success of every auction is based on our strong commitments and relationships to both our clients and customers.
