How To Bid

If you would like to bid in one of our auctions Hampton House offers a number of methods of doing so.

  1. You can attend the auction – Our gallery in downtown Hampton is one of the finest ever. A bidder can attend a preview of the offered items to inspect their condit ion. This is true even with an auction that is being offered only on line.
  2. Bid with us electronically – Hampton House has been a leader in offering on-line bidding to bidders throughout the world. Our full color on-line catalogue is hosted through PROXIBID, also a leader in on-line bidding. You can hear and see the bidding progress as if you were in the auction gallery itself.
  3. Bid by phone – Hampton House is happy to provide phone bidding on any gallery auction. Simply register in advance and submit a phone bidding form for the items you are interested in and we will call you to assist your participation.
  4. Bid by absentee – Leaving an absentee bid is almost as easy as attending the sale. Simply register as a bidder, fill out your absentee bid on the items of interest, and Hampton House will execute the bid – COMPETITIVELY – during the auction. No we do not start with your top bid, we bid in competitively.

Over the years we have executed thousands of bids on behalf of an absentee bidders and one of our most pleasurable moments is notifying you that you were successful.
