What is a Live Auction?
A Live Auction is a one-day only event. OzBid Auctions run Live Auctions all over Australia, hosted in easy to access public venues, such as a town hall or function center. Leading up to the auction, we publish a catalogue on our website, so you can see exactly what will be available on the day.
There is also a viewing on the day of the auction at the venue, prior to the start of the auction. During the viewing, you can take the opportunity to talk with our Art Specialist and Auctioneer about any of the Lots on offer or any general questions about the auction.
The Live Auction usually takes approximately 3 hours. At the end of the auction, bidders can pay for and take home their items or arrange delivery.
If you cannot attend the Live Auction, you can bid online (in real time) from your computer or Internet connected devices (phones and tablets). Or you can leave an absentee bid. We can then arrange fast door-to-door delivery to you, anywhere in the world!
