Buyer FAQ

Q: How do I register with Premier Auctions?
The easiest way to gert registered is to follow our simple, 6-step process that is designed to be completed in as little as 5 minutes. This process maximized bidder security. A link to a video explaining this process can be found here. This process requires a potential bidder to: 1) Create Account, 2) Enter Shipping Info., 3) Enter Billing Info. 4) Activate Account, 5) Verify Phone, and 6) Get Approval to Bid. This process only needs to be done once. If you have successfully registered to bid in one of our past sales, you only need to log in again and you will automatically be registered to bid.

Q: How do I bid on items in a current auction?
Click on the View/Register button located in our Current Auctions section, which will take you to our bidding platform. You can also click here to access our bidding platform. If an auction is open for bidding, you will see a Start Bidding button, which you may click to view all items up for sale. Beside each item there will be a Bid Now button and a price for the next highest bid. If you click that button, you will be agreeing to bid that price for the item. Alternatively, if you click the link below that button labeled Enter Maximum Bid, you will be prompted to enter the highest bid you are willing to pay for that item. Our system will bid automatically for you up to that maximum.
