Bid by telephone with a Cowan’s representative, who is present at the auction to relay bids to the auctioneer on your behalf.
A representative will call you 4-6 lots in advance and will bid live on your behalf. As the bidding proceeds, your representative will tell you the amount you must bid to stay in the running. Simply say “yes” or “no.”
We sell 80-100 lots per hour, but plan to be at your phone a half hour before the estimated time your lot will be sold. Please understand we cannot reach you if your phone has a caller block, the number is incorrect, the line is busy or there is no answer.
By registering to bid by phone, you agree to bid at least one half of the low estimate for each lot you are signed up for.
First, make sure you are logged into your My Cowan’s Account. If you are unsure how to do that, instructions can be found HERE.
