About Absentee Bidding

If you cannot attend our auction, and you are unable to follow on live stream or make a telephone bid, you can make an absentee bid instead. Let us say there is a particular vintage toy you would very much like to add to your collection; by filling out our form below and letting us know your maximum budget, we will bid on your behalf.

Our auctioneers will always try to buy the item for you at the best possible price. For example, if you leave a maximum bid of £1000 on a certain collectible, and the highest bid made is £500, you would win the lot with a purchase price of £550.

British Toy Auctions is proud to deliver the best — and fairest —price for both parties. We will never undersell or oversell a lot based on information from absentee bids.

For a safe, secure and convenient way to bid without attending our auctions, please fill in the form below.

This online bidding facility is provided as a convenient way of sending your commission bids direct to us without having to obtain, sign and post back a paper bidding form.

In most cases, online bidding works quickly and reliably. However, due to the nature of how the internet works, we cannot give any guarantees that the information you type in this form will be received by ourselves.

Please confirm with us that we have actually received your bids.
