Bidding on LHLive
When the “BID NOW!” button is green, you may place a bid for the asking price indicated in the “Asking Bid” box. If your bid is accepted, “You are the current high bidder” will appear in the Message box and the “BID NOW!” button will turn gray and be inactive until you are outbid. If your bid was not accepted, a competing bid was accepted as per the auctioneer’s discretion, the “BID NOW!” button will remain green and you may click on the green “BID NOW!” button and try again.
“Fair Warning!” will be declared in the Message box to indicate the auctioneer is about to close the lot. After bidding has finished, the winning bidder and hammer price will be displayed in the Message box and next lot will open.

An invoice will be emailed within 24 hours following the auction and a hard copy will be mailed the following business day. Please refer to the Buying at Auction and our Conditions of Sale for information on the buyer’s premium, methods of payment and retrieving your property.
