ALWAYS THE LOWEST BUYER’S PREMIUM WHEN BIDDING ON OUR WEBSITE OR MOBILE APP

Buyer’s Premium is just 25% when bidding via our website or mobile app (you can register and download by clicking here). Simply create an account, download the mobile app and log-on on both your computer and your mobile device. With your account you can:

  • save and ‘watch’ lots that interest you
  • place and review bids ahead of the sale
  • bid live in real time on sale day

For your convenience, you can also bid via Invaluable or LiveAuctioneers, but please note the Buyer’s Premium will be 30% on these and any other third party platforms.

SHIPPING

Buyer is responsible for arranging shipment of all works won at auction, but we will work with you to make this as easy as possible. Visit THIS LINK to view a list of shippers we have worked with successfully in the past, and do not hesitate to CONTACT US with any questions.

BID IN PERSON

*** Given the current crisis, live bidding will only happen via the phone or online ***  Bid live on the day of sale: it is free and open to everyone. Registration takes a matter of minutes and all you need is photo identification and a credit card.

BID ON THE PHONE

When bidding by phone, Black Art Auction will call you during the sale just before your specified lots are to be auctioned. This enables you to bid live with a BAA phone representative acting as liaison between you and the auctioneer. When phone bidding, you are bidding in real time as if you were in the auction room. Please call 317.986.6048 or SEND US AN EMAIL to arrange for a phone bid.

BID LIVE ONLINE OR VIA OUR MOBILE APP

On the day of the sale you can bid live during any auction from your desktop computer or mobile device! Bidding live online allows you to participate in real time no matter where you are physically located.

ABSENTEE

Absentee bids—also referred to as left, order or commission bids—allow you to place a maximum bid amount on individual lots. During the sale, Black Art Auction will bid on your behalf up to that amount, making every attempt to secure the lot at the most competitive price. Please call 317.986.6048 or SEND US AN EMAIL to arrange for an absentee bid.
