If you really want to buy something on one of our auctions, but will not be able to attend, you could put in a commission bid. This works as follows: You provide us with a maximum bid before the auction starts, and we will bid for you, up to the maximum bid you have provided. After the auction, we will contact anyone whose bids have been successfull. To arrange for a commission bid, please phone Wayne on 082 487 0289, no later than 09:00 on the day of the auction.

You can email your commission bids to us at info@tradersauction.co.za, or by using the contact us page on this website, but please note that email bids close at 16:00 the day before the auction. No emails received after 16:00 the day before the auction would be considered. If you want to make sure that your commission bid reaches us, rather phone Wayne on 082 487 0289.

Buyers who can not attend an auction, but are interested in high value items, can request a telephone bid. This means that you will be able to bid by telephone while the auction takes place. Our agent on the auction floor will submit live bids on your behalf. You will know immediately whether you won the bid or not.
