How To Bid

Burns & Co Auctions offer you four ways to bid:

  • In person Floor Bidding
  • Live Online Webcast Bidding
  • Phone Bidding or
  • Absentee Bidding

Please see details below on how to register as a bidder.

In person Floor Bidding

To bid at a Burns & Co Auction in person please visit our office staff and we will register your details as a bidder on the day.

If you are unable to attend one of our Auctions in person or are placing a bid from interstate or overseas, you may chose to submit a phone or absentee bid or online bid.

Live Online Webcast Bidding

Burns & Co’s Online Bidding platform allows people to watch a live stream of the auction and place bids online, in real time on all auction lots from anywhere in Australia or overseas from the comfort of your own home.

To participate in online bidding you must first register by clicking here and using the “Register to Bid” button for the auction you would like to participate in. You will then be able to create an account/login, place any pre-bids once bidding is open and on the day of the auction, view a live stream of the auction and place bids in real time.

Absentee Bidding and Phone Bidding

Simply fill out the absentee bidder or phone bidder form found on each auction landing page and send it back to our office and they will take care of it for you.
