We have a number of ways to bid with us, Absentee bidding, Autobids, Phone bidding, and Live Online bidding. We also have Timed Auctions and they are slightly different to Live bidding.
First, create an account with our auction. This account will allow you to view your bids, create watch lists of items you are looking for, and your lot history across all of our auctions.
You can submit an absentee bid on each lot and the auctioneer will bid on your behalf.
You can also leave an autobid where the computer bids for you.
We also have limited phone bidding available for items valued over €500.
Please be aware that there is 23% auction fees on all items purchased, and autobids and online live bids are subject to an additional 3.69% fee. For full Terms and Conditions, read here.
You can also bid live on Easyliveauction.com.Here’s our Quick and Easy guide to live online bidding registration for Easy Live Auction.

If you have registered with Easy Live Auction before, you only need to click “Connect to Auction” on our page here. Please note that when registering on EasyLiveAuctions Live Bidding there is two options for registration. An additional 3% commission charge + VAT at the rate imposed on the hammer price if ‘Premium’ is selected or £3 if the ‘Flat Fee’ option has been chosen at registration. The Flat Fee option is not available for Timed Auctions.
The timed auctions run automatically without the auctioneer calling the bids. The bidding is done directly in the lot page, and there is a bidding “window” or set time for the auction to run. Once the time is ended, the highest bidder wins the lot
After you register, on the lot page enter your maximum bid, then the system bids for you. The only time your bid goes straight to the maximum is if there is an underbidder, you get the next highest bid.
You will receive an email:
To confirm your bids
If your bid does not meet a reserve
If another bidder outbids you, incase you want to increase your bid
As the sale is ending, if a bid is placed in the last 5 minutes of the lot due to end, this end time will be extended by a further 5 minutes to prevent bid sniping.
