How to bid
Enjoy a friendly and welcoming atmosphere by coming to an auction event in person!
If you are unable to make it in person, you can still bid by phone through one of our representatives! At least 3 days before the auction, give us a call to put in a request to bid by phone. On the day of the auction, a Route 32 representative will call you approximately 5-10 lots prior to the item you are interested in. You can listen to the sale via phone and advise the representative to bid on your behalf. (We recommend that you leave an emergency absentee bid in the rare case we are unable to contact you prior to the sale of the item.)
A few things to remember: All requests for phone bidding must be received at least 3 days before the auction date. Phone bidding requests are honored on a first come, first served basis. We may be limited for phone bidding due to several requests for a single item.
Absentee bids will be executed by the auctioneer or a Route 32 Auctions representative during the live sale. We will execute your bid up to the maximum amount requested. Please call to begin the absentee bidding process,
