How to Buy

  • In-Person

    To attend an auction and bid in person you will need to register for a paddle in advance of the sale by filling out and submitting a registration form for New York, London, Geneva or Hong Kong.

  • Absentee & Telephone

    To bid in an auction you will not be attending, please complete the form for either absentee or telephone bidding and submit via fax or email at least 24 hours before the sale.

    For absentee bids, Phillips will bid on your behalf and attempt to purchase the lot for you at the lowest price, allowing for other bids and reserves, up to your pre-submitted maximum bid.

    For telephone bids, we will contact you during the sale, and a saleroom representative will bid live with you over the phone. Bid amounts do not include buyer’s premium and applicable sales tax.

  • Online & Mobile

    To bid online, create an account and register for live bidding in our digital saleroom. The digital saleroom is a new platform which gives clients the ability to place bids in real time online or through our iOS App.

    The online digital saleroom is optimized to run on Chrome and Firefox. Clients who wish to run the platform on Safari will be required to install Adobe Flash Player.

    If you wish to participate in our next auction using our new live bidding platform, please register 24 hours in advance of the sale. If you do not wish to bid, registration is not required to watch the auction.
