Register a bid paddle
All potential bidders must present a credit card to secure a paddle. Successful bidders must be prepared to pay for their purchases by credit card, cash or with a personal cheque payable to "C Magazine" at the venue. See the full terms of participation at the foot of this page.

Absentee bids and phone bids
Registered absentee bids will be executed by the auctioneer up to your bid limit in Canadian dollars. In the case of identical bids, the earliest bid we receive is honoured. You can arrange to bid over the phone during the live auction; your bids will be executed by a representative of C, on your instruction.

Bidding opens at 50% the estimated value and every lot is subject to any reserve bid placed on it. When a lot does not receive a bid, or the auctioneer deems the received bid to be insufficient as compared to the estimated value, the lot will be passed. Typically, fewer than five lots are passed. If you wish to bid on a lot that was passed, please speak to a representative at the registration table. Passed lots are also subject to the minimum and any reserve bids.
