How to Bid

IN PERSON

Bid in person during Live auctions at the New Haven Auctions 319 Peck Street, Building 4 location. 

During the auction, the auctioneer will announce each lot number and requested bidding increment. To bid, raise your paddle for recognition from the auctioneer. The auctioneer will announce the winning bidder number at the close of the lot.

TO REGISTER: Register at any live auction or preview event. Please bring a photo ID to register, at which time you will receive a paddle and bidding number. You may also register in advance during the preview dates.
 

BY TELEPHONE

Bid by telephone with a New Haven Auctions' representative, who is present at the Live Online auction to relay bids to the auctioneer on your behalf. 

A representative will call you 2-3 lots in advance and will bid live on your behalf. As the bidding proceeds, your representative will tell you the amount you must bid to stay in the running. Simply say “yes” or “no.”

We sell approximately 50 lots per hour, but plan to be at your phone 15 minuets before the estimated time your lot will be sold. Please understand we cannot reach you if your phone has a caller block, the number is incorrect, the line is busy or there is no answer.

TO REGISTER: Call (475) 234-5120, email info@newhavenauctions.com 

You may also Download a Bidder Form (pdf). Completed forms can be emailed to info@newhavenauctions.com 

Phone bids should be placed at least 24 hours in advance of the start of the auction.
 

ABSENTEE

A method of bidding for those who cannot or do not wish to attend an auction in person. The bidder specifies their maximum bid in advance of the auction. The auctioneer will bid on behalf of the absentee bidder against any competition, starting at the lowest possible selling price, and continuing in the defined increments, up to the bidder’s maximum specified bid.

Absentee bids are recorded with the time and date of arrival. In the case of a tie, the earliest absentee bidder wins. In the event of a tie bid between an absentee and floor bidder, the item will go to the floor bidder.

TO REGISTER: Call (475) 234-5120, email info@newhavenauctions.com or bid online. Absentee Bids can be left during the preview.

You may also Download a Bidder Form (pdf). Completed forms can be emailed to info@newhavenauctions.com 

Bids should be placed at least 24 hours in advance of the start of the auction.
 

LIVE ONLINE

All Live auctions are also offered live online. In addition, New Haven Auctions' offers Online Discovery auctions, which are available exclusively online. Our online auctions follow the same format as a live salesroom auction, with the auction beginning at Lot #1 and proceeding sequentially through each lot as they are sold. New Haven Auctions' online discovery auctions are available for bidding through liveauctioneers.com, invaluable.com, and Bidsquare.com.

TO REGISTER: 

You must register to bid on either liveauctioneers.com, invaluable.com, or Bidsquare.com site and then allow time for New Haven Auctions' to accept your registration. We try to confirm bidder requests as quickly as possible, but it’s best to allow up to 24 hours prior to the start of the auction for approval. Please contact info@newhavenauctions.com should you have any issues or questions.
