For buyers unable to participate live in the salesroom or on the telephone, we offer the option of leaving absentee bids. A trained staff member will bid on your behalf alternately against other bidders until the bidding ends. In the event that the other bidders drop out before reaching the full amount of your absentee bid, you will purchase the lot at the next increment.
We have been experiencing some intermittent technical problems with our online bid form. Errors have been occuring while using the Chrome web browser, and we advise using Firefox, Safari or Internet Explorer when completing this form. We also strongly suggest that you either call or email Michaan's Auctions Customer Service to confirm your bids. We apologize for the inconvenience.
