Make an Offer
Make an Offer

With Make an Offer, you give buyers a chance to negotiate the price. Make an Offer is a discrete form of bidding where our professional auctioneers will negotiate with buyers on your behalf using your agreed pricing limits. 

You can ensure that our item is not sold below a minimum acceptable price, by setting a reserve price. Offers below the reserve price will be responded to with a counteroffer. Buyers with offers below the current best offer will receive an outbid notice and an invitation to bid again.

In instances where the item did not fetch the desired price, our auctioneers will forward you the best offer for your consideration.
