Is the Thought of Bidding at Auction Daunting?

Well, if you have never attended and/or bided at an auction then it most definitely will do. It is that simple fear of the unknown, the hesitation of a situation you don’t know the outcome of. But don’t worry; you won’t mistakenly place a bid by itching your nose,coughing, winking or scratching your head!

A Bidder at Britannia Piano Auctions in Manchester UK

There is still a school of thought that auctions are a black art and a complicated process. Some people believe that it can be almost an ‘old boys club’. Such views are very dated and untrue.

There are many regular auction goers who get to know each others faces, people who are interested in the same pianos will talk about instruments at the auction and share their opinions with each other. It can be almost a social event for some people. However, when it comes to the actual auction the auctioneer treats every bidder in the room equally.

If on the day you find the process of bidding yourself too daunting then Britannia Piano Auctions will have bidders available who will talk with you; understand what piano(s) you are interested in and the maximum you are willing to bid up to. In the auction at your request they will stand with you and do the physical bidding.
