We will contact you approximately 3 lots before the lot you are interested in bidding on. Our staff will let you know what bids are being taken and ask if you would like to bid. If you indicate you would like to bid they will place the bid with the auctioneer. If they indicate the bid is “with you” then you are the current high bidder. Conversely if they say that the bid is “against you” then your bid has been topped and if interested you will need to bid again.
