We've had a refresh

New bidding features now available

25/04/2021     auction

Since the demand for online bidding has grown rapidly, we’ve refreshed our online bidding platform, Chiswick Live, to help improve your auction experience.  The next time you bid online with Chiswick Live, you will notice:

  • A new look and feel to our Chiswick Live bidding screen.
  • Lot information including the full description is now easy to view straight from the bidding screen.
  • Enhanced bidding alerts allow you to keep track of the activity in the Saleroom.
  • Multiple commission bids can now be placed on upcoming lots directly from the bidding screen.
  • The ‘Current Bid’ feature will display the highest current commission bid placed on Chiswick Live before the auction. This will allow you greater insight into market prices before bidding. 

Because of the growth in demand for online bidding, from Thursday 13 May 2021 we will charge a 1% online bidding surcharge for Lot(s) purchased on Chiswick Live, in addition to Buyer’s Premium and standard VAT charges. Chiswick Live continues to be the most affordable online bidding platform, with our online bidding partners charging up to 5% of the hammer price for this surcharge. There will be no Chiswick Live online surcharge for this week's sales:

  • Photographica and Stereo, Wednesday 5 May at 11am 
  • From the Curious to the Extraordinary, Thursday 6 May at 12pm 

There is no action required from you to access these new features. Next time you wish to bid online, just login in and follow these easy steps:

  • Visit chiswickauctions.co.uk
  • Select My Account in the navigation menu.
  • Create a Chiswick Live account or login into your account prior to the auction.

  • Select ‘Place Bid’ on your desired Lot(s).
