Bidding personally The number of bidders personally present at Rapp auctions is always very high. If you wish to take part in the bidding, you will be given your own bidder number. It will enable you to participate directly in the auction activities, and it will ensure your anonymity as a bidder. BIDDING BY PHONE Should you prefer to take part from your home, you may profit from our phone bidding service. This will connect you «directly» to the auction room. Please contact us early if you are contemplating this bidding option. BIDDING through an agent We will gladly assist you in commissioning an auction agent to personally safeguard your interests during the auctions. BIDDING by WRITING Thousands of prospective purchasers bid for the lots by written purchasing orders. You may transmit your bids by post or by fax using the enclosed auction order form. As a remote bidder, you will be personally represented by the auctioneer as if you yourself were present in the auction hall, safeguarding your interests and observing the strictest confidentiality. Whenever possible, the knock-down price will not be the highest price that you bid, but as low as possible. For example, if you bid CHF 300.– for a lot and the bid below yours is CHF 200.–, the lot will go to you as the highest bidder at a knock-down price one auctioning increment above the second-highest bid, that is, for example CHF 210.–. › Bids can only be accepted for auction if they are provided with a legally valid signature. › It may not be possible to consider written bids reaching us later than one hour before the relevant lot comes up for auction. › If several identical written bids are made for the same lot, the bid first received shall have priority. › Underbidding is pointless! › You have the option of making alternative bids as well as of limiting the total amount of your bids.
