A Step-by-Step Guide for New Bidders


Click into the web catalogue on our main page. Each page will look similar to the example below.
The first step is to create a User Account.
Begin the process by clicking “Login/New Bidder” or “Register to Bid”.
Clicking either option will take you to the screen below.
If you are a new bidder click “New Bidder? Click Here”.

You will be prompted to check your email address.
This is to guarantee that the email address you are using does not already have an account associated with it.
Make sure to enter your email address into both fields, then click “Check Email”.

If your email address already has an associated account, a red notification will appear.
Follow the prompts to either “Logon” or “Reset Password”.

A successful email check will take you to the next screen.
Create your new account by entering your personal information. Only fill in the “Company” field if you are bidding on behalf of a company.

You will also create a “User Name” and “Password”.
You will use this combination every time you want to logon/register for future auctions. Make sure to record this information as we cannot access it.

Now you can customize your account. These settings can be changed at any time.

Once you have completed entering your information and preferences click “Create New Account”.
You will see a confirmation message letting you know that you were successful.

Click “Ok”. You will be taken back into the web catalogue.
Now you see your name at the top of the page. Congratulations, you have created your online account and are logged on.
You now need to register for the specific auction.

It is important to note that registering is different than creating an online account.
You create an online account only once. You register each time you want to participate in an auction.
Each time you will need to review your personal information and agree to the “Terms and Conditions” of the auction.
To register for the auction click “Register to Bid”.
A registration window will appear. You will need to add a credit card in order to register.
Note: you will be able pay by alternate means if you are a successful bidder.
The first time you register for an auction you will need to click “Add a Payment Method”. This will open a form where you enter your credit card information.
Please ensure that your name and address match exactly what is on your credit card statement. This is a security feature.

When you are done click “Save Payment Method”.

Notice that instead of saying “Add a Payment Method” you now have a drop down menu that allows you to select the credit card you wish to use for registration; you can have multiple cards within your online account, if you choose.
Select the payment method you with to use based on the “Nickname” you provided when registering the card. If there is only one card on the account the drop down menu will default to that selection.

Check the box indicating that you have read and accept the “Auction Terms & Conditions” (please read them).
Click “Submit Registration”.

You should now see a “Registration Successful” message. Click “Ok”.

You will once again be taken back into the web catalogue.
You will now see “You are Registered” on a bright red background.

You can now begin placing pre-bids.
If you wish to participate in real-time, please make sure to logon again.
We recommend visiting our FAQ pages for both live and online auctions.
Happy bidding & good luck!
