In-Person Bidding
Bidding in-person provides the greatest advantage to a bidder.

Take advantage of the opportunity to view, handle and research your potential purchases. The auction floor is an exciting and inviting experience. We highly encourage your attendance.  You will want to bring a valid ID to register at the auction house. We accept major credit cards, checks and cash.

Live Online Bidding
Internet bidding is provided by Ripley Auctions Private Label Bidding. This bidding system allows you to monitor and bid on each lot as it comes to offer. If you are a first time bidder register with us with RIPLEY AUCTIONS LIVE INTERNET BIDDING.

You will have a real-time bidding console that allows you to submit bids to the Internet bidding administrator and the auctioneer. This type of absentee bidding is the only way to fully attend and take advantage of every buying opportunity.
