Proxy Bids

Alternatively, if the prospective bidder is unable to attend in person, there is a facility for the Auctioneer to bid on behalf of absent bidders by completing the appropriate form in the catalogue that should be lodged with the Auctioneers, together with the required deposit, by 5pm on the day prior to the auction sale.

Marriott & Co’s auctions are completely transparent. The Auctioneer will make it clear when the ‘absent bidder’ (as mentioned above) is bidding, and Marriott & Co’s Auctioneers will never take bids ‘off the wall’ or attempt any other deception. The Auctioneer will set the bidding increments to increase at around 5% per bid.
