Remote bidding puts you in control
If you are unable to attend one of our live room auctions, there is no need to miss out on the property you are after.
We have 3 ways to take part in remote bidding for our property auctions, this means you don’t need to attend our auction in person, and you are still in control of your bids and the maximum price you are prepared to pay.
Please read our ways to bid to find out about all your bidding options.
You instruct the auctioneer to bid on your behalf up to your maximum pre-set amount. Your bid is confidential between you and the auctioneers, and it will not be disclosed to anyone else. The auctioneer will bid on your behalf in accordance with the bidding in the auction room, so you can still get the property for less than your top bid. Our remote bidding form must be completed and returned to our office no less than 24 hours before the auction, in order to give us time to process your request. You can keep up-to-date with the bidding by watching the auction live.
You will need to be available on the day of the auction for us to contact you by phone. One of our auction team will give you a call and bid as per your instructions. You will need to complete our remote bidding form and return it to our offices, no less than 48 hours before the auction.
We also have the option to bid online through a secure area on our website. You will need to return our remote bidding form within 48 hours before the auction. We will set up your account and provide you with your log in details to bid. You will be able to see the bidding live and place your bid accordingly.
Please note, you must read the legal pack before we can create your online bidding account, please ensure you register with the same email address you provide to us for the system to identify you. If you don’t follow these important steps you won’t be able to bid.
As with any auction, if you are successful, your purchase will be legally binding, and you will exchange contracts on the fall of the gavel. A member of our staff will sign the contract/special conditions of sale on your behalf, in accordance with the terms and conditions, which are available with our remote bidding form.
It is your responsibility to ensure you have completed all of your pre-auction checks which should include viewing the property, reading the legal pack, checking the addendum for any changes to the catalogue, reading the important information and common auction conditions, as well as arranging a survey and your finances (if applicable).
You must return your completed form by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or to our Birmingham office with your certified or original identification. If you are unsure about your bidding options or have any questions, our team will be happy to help you.
Please note that Bond Wolfe Auctions cannot be held responsible for internet/connection/communications problems which stop you from being able to bid for any of our auction properties.
