Bidding in a Rapp auction couldn’t be easier. Here is how it works:

Step 1

Find the auction which you would like to take part in. Click on the auction calendar or auction catalogue. There you will find information on the date and time of the auction.

Step 2

There are several ways to take part in our auctions:

Bid Live Online
Join in with the auction in real time over the internet — just as if you were in the hall with us! For live bidding online, please register at least 48 hours before the auction you wish to take part in.

At our RAPP ONLINE ONLY auctions, you can only bid either live online or by sending your bids in advance using our online form or in writing (a printed form is enclosed with the auction catalogue).

Attend Auctions In Person
Many of our costumers participate in the auction sale in person. Make sure you are present at least 30 minutes before the auction starts and register at the reception. New clients are asked for a valid passport or identity card. After the registration you will be given your personal bidder number to participate in the hall auction.

Bid By Telephone
You can also take part in the auction by telephone. Our staff speak German, English, French, Italian and Spanish. Please register here at least 48 hours before the auction you wish to take part in.


Bid By Writing
Thousands of prospective purchasers bid for the lots by written purchasing orders. You may transmit your bids by mail or by fax using the Auction Bid Form. As a remote bidder, you will be personally represented by the auctioneer as if you were present in the auction room yourself, safeguarding your interests and observing the ­strictest confidentiality.

– Bids can only be accepted for the auction if they are provided with a legally valid signature.

– We might not be able to consider written bids reaching us later than one hour before the relevant lot
comes up for auction.

Send Bids Via Online Form
You can send your bids in advance of the auction using our online form.
