During our timed-online auction, you can place your bids online until the specified time the auction of the lot ends. After you enter your maximum bid, the system will automatically bid against the other bidders. You will be kept informed about the progress of the bidding process by email and via the website. To the right of each lot, you can see the time the lot closes for bidding. However, if a new bid is placed in the last five minutes before this specified time, it will be extended by five minutes. This gives you the opportunity to place another bid. This continues until no more bids are placed.
Registering for bidding
You can register for bidding by clicking the ‘registreer’ button in the online catalogue (top right corner of the black menu bar) or by clicking this link. After completing the form with the requested information, you will receive an email with a link to verify your email address.
The auctioneer has to manually approve your registration before you can place your bids. You will receive a confirmation once you are approved to bid. We therefore recommend to register well in advance so you can be sure to join the auction. This authorization remains valid for the subsequent auctions. Once you have been approved, you can directly start bidding in the following auctions.
In order to place bids, you can click the blue button ‘bieden’ in the online catalogue and enter your maximum bid. Please make sure to enter a correct bid, because your bids cannot be changed after placing them.
It is not the case that your maximum bid is placed instantly. The system bids for you against other bidders, starting at € 5. It is possible that another bidder has already placed a higher bid.
Bidder 1 enters a bid of maximum € 50 on a lot. If there are no further bids, the lot remains at € 5. If bidder 2 bids € 25, the lot will be set at € 30 for bidder 1. If bidder 2 bids € 50, the lot will be set at € 50 for bidder 1. This is because bidder 1 placed his bid earlier. If bidder 2 bids € 100, the lot will be set at € 55 for bidder 2.
Sometimes, a limit is set below which the lot cannot be sold. If you receive this notification, you can keep placing your bids until the minimum limit is reached.
When a lot has a minimum limit of € 100 and you place a bid of € 50, the bid is immediately set at € 50. However, this lot will not be yours yet, because the bid is below the minimum limit. However, if you bid € 150 on the same lot, the bid is set at € 100.
You will receive an email if you have been outbid.
You can add lots to your list of favourites by clicking on the star-symbol to the right of the lot number.
Clicking the star symbol will turn it yellow, which shows the lot is added to your list of favourites. By clicking the star symbol again, it will turn gray and the lot will be removed from your list of favourite lots.
You can see an overview of all your favourite lots by clicking on ‘Mijn catalogus’ followed by ‘Mijn favorieten’.
The following page (see image below) will then open, where you can create a catalogue of all your favourites to take with you to a viewing day, for example. You can create this catalogue in PDF by clicking the ‘Catalogus’ button at the top left.
