Bidding in Person
Once you have registered to bid with GFL you will be issued with a buyers number that links you to our sale, in order to participate simply raise your buyers number so that it is clearly visible to the auctioneer, if your bid is successful the auctioneer will acknowledge your number as the winning bid.

 

Telephone Bidding
Enables you to participate in our auction without the requirement to attend, lodgement of a telephone bid can be undertaken at our auction viewings, via telephone, online or via fax.  GFL will assign a consultant to you and that person will contact you as your lot of interest is approaching offer, they will then bid live with you via telephone, if you are successful the auctioneer will acknowledge your number as the winning bid.

Absentee Bidding
As with telephone bidding absentee bidding enables you to participate at our auction without the requirement of your attendance, similarly lodgement of an absentee bid can be undertaken at our auction viewings, via telephone, online or via fax, however in the instance of an absentee bid your bid amount (excluding buyers premium 16.5%) is lodged with our auctioneer who then advances bidding on your behalf, and your bid will be executed as cheaply as possible.
