Nowadays a number of our Commercial sales are held as timed online auctions rather than in the traditional manner. This allows clients to bid online without attending the premises and is often a more convenient method of sale. These auctions are fully catalogued and illustrated via our website – www.peacockauction.co.uk
In addition with the increased use of the internet traditional auctions are changing and a number of our sales are now held live online at the same time as being held in the normal manner. These auctions are linked via our website allowing the remote buyer to see images and descriptions and to hear the auctioneer selling. Once registered bidding is painless by the simple click of a button! These sales also allow busy individuals who are unable to attend the auction in person to be able bid from the comfort of their home or even the beach!
Since introducing online auctions our UK client base has dramatically increased together with the addition of buyers from Asia, Europe, Australasia & North America

Register for the auction
You can view items available to bid on in an auction from the catalogue page. You will need to register for the auction to participate. From the catalogue page, click on the orange Connect to auction button. You’ll then be asked a few details about yourself and securely enter your debit/credit card details.
Leave a max bid
You can place a maximum bid on a lot that you are interested in before the auction starts. This is the highest amount you are willing to pay.
i-bidder, saleroom or bidspotter will then place bids on your behalf, bidding just enough to keep you in the lead, never going beyond your max bid.
Bid live in the auction
Be sure to note the date and start time for the auction, as you can also bid in real time as the auction progresses. You will be able to hear the auctioneer call out the bids and follow bidding on screen as it happens. When your lot comes up, use the blue ‘Bid Now’ button to place your bid. Bid quickly to give yourself the best opportunity to purchase the item. You will be notified on screen if you are Leading, have been Outbid or have Won the item.
