Bidding at Auction
Absentee & Telephone Bidding
Please complete our online form to submit an Absentee and or Telephone Bid.
Please note that all Absentee and Telephone Bid Forms are to be printed out, filled in and faxed to us by 1:00 P.M. the Friday prior to the auction.
If you are interested in telephone bidding, please be sure to enter a telephone number where you can be reached on Saturday, the day of the auction. We recommend that if you are interested in telephone bidding, you call to be sure a line is available for the item you wish to bid on, as we have limited lines available, and these are allocated on a first come-first served basis. In the event of a tie bid, live bidders and telephone bidders take precedence over absentee bids.
Clients can bid live on auction days in our Salerooms located at our main gallery. All auctions are held on the 2nd floor of Crescent City Auction Gallery’s main gallery located at 1330 St. Charles Ave., New Orleans, LA 70130.
