3. What are Bidding Methods?

Registered Buyers can bid in four ways. All are simple and straight-forward:
  • Bidding at the Saleroom

    After you've registered with your photo ID, and picked up your paddle, the real fun begins. In the saleroom, the auctioneer will announce bids in ascending order of lots. If the item and price are right, raise your paddle. Continue until you're the only bidder remaining or you have reached up to your maximum limit on that particular lot. The auctioneer will then bring down the gavel and you'll feel a rush of excitement. It's yours. You've won the auction and your are the new proud owner of it!

  • Bidding on Telephone

    The Bidders who do not wish to be present in the saleroom, or those unable to attend the auction in person can make arrangements with Rajgor’s to bid on the telephone. We will call you from the saleroom when your lot is approaching and will bid on your behalf.

  • Absentee Bids

    Bidders may also choose to submit their Absentee Bids or Written Bids which the auctioneer will execute on their behalf during the auction. Please note that absentee bids should indicate the maximum limit per lot excluding the buyer’s premium. The auctioneer will try and buy the lot at the lowest possible price above or at the reserve for the specified lot.

  • Online Bidding

    A registered buyer can bid Online on the website, till a given time limit. The Online bidding ends before the beginning of the sale in the saleroom. However, a buyer leading in an Online bid may get outbid in the saleroom. The highest bidder in the saleroom will be considered as the final winner of the lot.

We would like to remind our bidders that Rajgor’s does not accept payment from third parties, including agents, and that invoice names and addresses cannot be changed after the sale. If you are bidding on behalf of someone else or using another vehicle to pay, then that party is our client and as such will need to be registered as the bidder.

4. What is a Price Estimate?

  • The estimate figures for each lot are the Auctioneer's estimation of an expected price only. These estimates are not representative of a reserve price and are published by the Rajgor’s as a guide to buyers. Bidders may bid at or within the estimate, or above the estimate, however, bids which are less than the lower estimate will not be considered by the Auctioneer. Estimates are only indicative prices, and do not include buyer’s premium or any taxes, which will be additional.
  • All lots are sold subject to a reserve unless specifically indicated otherwise. All reserves are kept confidential. A Reserve is a confidential price or bid below which the Auctioneer will not sell an item or will re-purchase on behalf of the Consignor or for the Rajgor's Auctions. The Auctioneer reserves the right to place bids on behalf of the consignor up to the amount of a reserve price established by the consigner. Therefore, any bids below the reserve will not be considered by the auctioneer to be a ‘selling price’.
  • Lots are usually opened for bidding in the saleroom, at the current highest Bid, if any, received during the Online Bidding on the website, The Bids are increased in increments of approximately 10%. Any absentee bids that do not meet a standard bidding increment will be rounded down to the previous one. All increments are solely at the discretion of the auctioneer.
