How can I bid online at the auction?
Step 1: Register yourself
Click here to register an account. On this secured page you can fill in your personal details and then click on the “Register now” button. Then you will receive a confirmation email.
Step 2: Wait until you are verified
After registration your account need to be verified. To do this, you need to send us a copy of your valid identity card — this can take up to two days. When your account has been verified, you will receive an email where you can create your username and password. We reserve the right to send you a deposit request in order to prevent any misuse. The amount of the deposit is 2,000.00 euros. After we have received the money, we will activate you for the bidding process. Surcharges at the auction are offset against this amount. If you do not buy a yearling, the amount will be transferred back to you immediately after the auction.
Step 3: Bid online at the auction
On auction day you can login to the website. Once you are logged in, you can use the “Live Auction” button which will open two hours before the auction starts. We advise you to login in-time and prior to the start of the auction.
For an optimal experience we advise you to use the Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge webbrowser. You can download them for free through the links. Furthermore we recommend bidders to use a stable internet connection (WiFi or Cable). If you do not have a strong internet connection you will risk your bids being delayed by slow connections.
On auction day, login with username & password and click on one of the “Go to live auction”-buttons. Once logged in, you will automatically be forwarded to the Bidscreen where you can follow the auction LIVE and bid online.
Before you can bid, you must first activate the bid button. This is done in order to exclude accidental bidding. After activating the bid button, you will bid in the auction by a single click on the bid button. No confirmation of your bid will be requested. During the auction you should be reachable on the provided phone number.
The Bidscreen will indicate whether your bid has been accepted and whether you are the highest bidder. A placed bid is unconditional, irrevocable and without any reservation.
Step 4: You are the highest bidder
If you are the highest bidder, you will receive an email with confirmation. You will be contacted after the auction.
