Auction 88 will be live on the net via our own auction systems. Just login as usual and then open the Live Bidding window. This will then give you the ability to bid on each lot just as if you were in the room.
COVID19 restrictions appear to be ongoing, please make an appointment if you are coming in for any reason. We will use our normal emails to keep you updated with any changes.

At this stage we do not know how limited viewing and room bidding will be due to the ever-changing COVID19 restrictions. Please make an appointment if you are coming in for any reason, as that will help us manage the numbers in the building at any one time.
We have limited our staff on both auction days, to allow for more room bidders, so please avoid calling then, as we may not be able to answer you promptly. While we have also organised ourselves to cater for more phone bidders, we do encourage everyone to use our website www.phoenixauctions.com.au as much as possible as that will provide you with the best information about each lot and your bids.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any queries.
