Ways to Bid

Whether a bid in real-time online, in person, telephone or absentee, RCB Auctions has got you covered. Read on for a detailed description of each.

Preview days
The auction room and website present lots going under the hammer two weeks prior to the auctions. Each auction: live and timed is listed in Upcoming Auctions. There is a downloadable PDF of our catalogue in Thai and English for each auction. The catalogue includes photos and description of each lot and includes the starting bid price.

Bid in real-time online
You can bid in real-time online. First create an account by registering online. On the day of the auction, log on to the website and enter the auction. You will see each lot come up and the display panel will indicate the next bid increment. There will also be a live stream from the auction room on the system so you can watch the auctioneers in action.

Timed Auctions
These are lots that are for bidding without auctioneers. There is a set period for which you can bid.

Bid in person
If you would like to bid on the auction floor, you will provide your personal details at the registration desk and receive a bidding paddle. If you have not previously registered with RCB Auctions, you will be required to provide your personal information (name, address, and copy of your ID or Passport) plus your credit card or bank account details.

Absentee bidding
Cannot attend the live auction, no problem. There are three options for making an Absentee Bid.
1. Register online here.
2. Download and complete the absentee bid form and email it to auction@rivercity.co.th before 6 pm the day prior to the Auction.
3. Complete an Absentee Bidding Form at the auction room during the preview period.
Our representative will then make your bid, only ever bidding to the lowest price possible or up to your specified price limit. RCB Auctions will not be held responsible if an absentee bid cannot be executed.

Telephone bidding
You can bid by telephone on the day of the live auction. This needs to be arranged in advance, during the preview period for the live auction. To make arrangements, please download and complete the telephone bid form and email it to auction@rivercity.co.th or telephone (+66) 02 237 0077.
