Auction searches

Postby geofflove » Wed Jun 24, 2020 9:50 pm

So, as a relative newbie I don’t know if this is a sensitive subject or not but....

Generally which are the best sites/apps which allow you to search/set alerts for auctions for up and coming sales? I’ve come across thesaleroom.com and barnebys but don’t know if these are best or if there are others? Obviously things have been quiet with lockdown but I would like to get involved in a few auctions having never been for many years.

Thanks

The CALENDAR section on here would be a good starting place.
I went to my first slot-machine auction earlier this week. If you are more familiar with used-car auctions, you might need to take a little light reading with you to pass the time.
Tolstoy, for instance.

At least you went home with something !THUMBS! The auctioneer was very slow, normally whiz through at 100 lots per hour, not 50.

Hi brigham.

Yes I think that was the auction in Gateshead? I’m in Newcastle! I was thinking of going but everything on offer was a bit on the large size for me to find a space for!

Of course people like to think they are the only ones who know other sites where they exist and may not want to share. Barnebys I thought picked up from multiple sources, but seems to be pretty useless of late...
