What is a telephone bid?

A telephone bid allows those who can’t attend the auction day in person to still be able to bid.

Have you watched our live auction from our website? You can bid from anywhere on the phone, hear the auctioneer in the background AND see him accept your bid live, on screen! Technology ay, a wonderful thing.

Welcome to Connect UK’s Auction Academy – Here to answer all your property auction questions.

Here’s what you have to do in order to bid, over the phone.

Before any bids can be made you will be asked to complete a registration form which will give us authority to sign in your absence on the exchange of contracts after the fall of the gavel if you are successful in becoming the highest bidder.

This method of bidding will be booked pre auction and will be based on a first-come, first-serve basis.

We would call you, shortly before the lot you are bidding on commences. You will be able to hear the auctioneer in the background and will be able to watch the auction live in action through our website live stream – Connect Realtime©. You will be able to instruct us to bid for you as the auctioneer begins the sale and we will continue to bid on your behalf, until you say otherwise.

If you were successful and the highest bidder of the lot, a member of the team would be in touch to give you the great news in which you’ll then be able to pay your deposit and buyer’s premium.

It’s as if you were there in person!

Check out our other videos where we discuss the buyer’s premium and auction legal packs.
