Bidding with Shannon's.
Bidding directly with Shannon’s ensures you get the best value. Avoid service fees and technical errors by bidding in person, reserving a phone line or leaving an in-house absentee bid.
Join us at our spacious Milford, Connecticut auction gallery to participate in the action in-person. Registration for the sale takes two minutes and can be completed on-site before or during the auction.
Live bidding is only available at our biannual Spring and Fall Fine Art Auctions. We regrettably cannot accommodate live bids or phone bidding during our Online Fine Art Auctions.
PHONE AND ABSENTEE BIDDING
Phone lines and Absentee bids can be arranged directly from the online catalog. Click on the ‘BID & TRACK’ button from the lot view to log-in to your customer account. If you do not have an account already you will need to REGISTER. Contact us if you forgot your password or have trouble registering.
Once you have logged in, you will be shown the bidding page for the lot you have selected. On the bidding page, either check the telephone bid box or enter your absentee bid amount. Submit the form when you are finished.
You will receive an email from Shannon’s within 24 hours confirming receipt of your bids. If you do not receive a confirmation email, your bids were not submitted and you will not be called on the day of the auction. Online absentee and phone bid requests must be received by 5PM the day before the auction.
You can also submit a request for a phone or absentee bid using the form below. Send the form via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or via fax (203) 877-1719.
BIDDING AT SHANNON’S FINE ART AUCTIONEERS, WHETHER IN PERSON, BY AGENT, ORDER BID, TELEPHONE, INTERNET OR OTHER MEANS, CONSTITUTES YOUR ACKNOWLEDGEMENT AND ACCEPTANCE OF THE “CONDITIONS OF SALE”.
