Absentee Bid

If you wish to leave an absentee bid for the auction please fill out this form.

Bid 1

An absentee bid is the maximum hammer price that the auctioneer acting as your representative can bid up to on your behalf. The auctioneer will purchase the work on your behalf for the lowest bid amount possible. The maximum bid does not include buyer’s premium or GST (where applicable). Bids are made in Australian dollars. Should the bid be successful, the buyer will be obliged to pay the final bid price plus buyer's premium of 25% (inclusive of GST) of the final bid price.

By completing this form, absentee bidders request and authorise Deutscher and Hackett to place the following bids acting as agent on their behalf up to and including the maximum bid specified. Absentee bids must be received a minimum of two hours prior to completion of timed online auctions or twenty four hours prior to the commencement of live auctions. All absentee bids received online will be confirmed by email. If you have not previously bid with Deutscher and Hackett, upon receiving your bid form we will request photo identification, such as a drivers licence or passport.   

Alternatively, absentee bids can be placed up until the closing minutes of each Lot via Invaluable.com. Please note that bidders will be required to register with Invaluable.com prior to placing bids.

Deutscher and Hackett provides this complimentary service as a courtesy to clients and does not accept liability for errors and omissions in the execution of absentee bids with an art specialist. Please refer to the Buying and Selling Guide for information, terms and conditions regarding sales.
