If you are unable to attend an auction, you may choose to place 'maximum bid' (also commonly referred to as a proxy or commission bid). This can be done online, once you have registered to bid. Each lot has a 'Max Bid' tab which you can enter before the sale ends.

A maximum bid takes priority over another same amount bid received afterwards. Your bids will only increase if an alternative higher bid is received. Your final bid will only exceed an alternative bid by the pre-determined bidding increment level for that lot and will not exceed your maximum bid level.

Each lot is automatically set with pre-determined bidding increments, unless otherwise stated.

Each lot provides the opportunity for a bidder to place a 'Maximum Bid' (or Proxy Bid). This is the maximum amount you are willing to bid for a lot. Having set a 'Maximum Bid', should another bidder place an alternative bid on the same lot then your next bid will be automatically placed to the next pre-determined increment. Your bids will only continue until they exceed an alternative bid and will not be placed above your pre-determined maximum level. Should two bids be received for the same amount, the first placed proxy bid will take precedent.
