In Person Auctions at Your Location

There’s nothing quite like the thrill and drama of participating in a live auction. To bid in person, you’ll need to arrive in enough time to register and receive a paddle number before your lots of interest are offered. If it is your first time bidding with us, please bring a form of picture identification, such as a passport or driver’s license.

Kimballs holds auctions on client sites and will come to you.


Registration typically opens 30 minutes prior to the auction start time. Visit the registration desk to register and receive a paddle number.


The auction will begin when the auctioneer asks for an opening bid on the first lot. Bidding proceeds according to Kimballs’ increments or at the auctioneer’s discretion. The auctioneer will accept bids from the floor and internet.

When your lot does come up, be prepared to raise your paddle. The auctioneer will accept your competitive bids along with all others until the final hammer price is reached and the auctioneer announces, “sold.”


If you are the winning bidder, congratulations!
