The live web-based auctions organised by Pro Auction provide all the advantages of the traditional method, conducted via a specialist online platform. When you decide to sell via one of our webcast auctions, the location of the buyer isn’t restricted. Interested parties from all over the world can make bids in real time along with people physically placed at the auction site. Remote bidders love this system as they save on time and money (zero travel and hotel expenses) and can browse the auction catalogue from the comfort and privacy of their own home or business.
How it works
Our webcast auctions have cameras installed in the bidding room that stream the event in real-time. This footage is then broadcast via the website with buyers able to log in with secure passwords. They receive every benefit that they would by attending in person but have the increased flexibility of being able to participate from any location with access by mobile phone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer.
Free property appraisal
No matter the type of property you wish to sell (Furniture, jewellery, collectables, property, etc.) we provide a free valuation with no commitment to sell. When you contact our webcast department, they will set time aside to discuss the item with you and take a detailed summary. Once we understand your requirements, we will carry out extensive research to reach a current value. Very often, we do this remotely if the client is not able to attend our offices. Alternatively, where complex lots are involved we can visit your premises to conduct the appraisal.
Why a webcast auction?
The auction process enables the market to decide what the item is worth. Our online webcast auction follows the traditional process but does it all online in real-time. Once bidders have registered, they can get involved in the auction. Buyers can be placed anywhere in the world instead of having to travel to the auction room.
