If you choose to bid online, you will be using Lang's Live. This platform was designed specifically for our customers,
with features that will enhance your bidding experience, provide easier navigation, and a user friendly bid screen with
more information available to you while actively bidding.
Below are screen shots of the bid screen as you will see it on your PC. The first image shows how the bid progression will look during the live auction while a lot is being sold. If you placed an absentee bid prior to the auction, the system will implement your bid automatically as shown.
While you are the high bidder, there will be no Bid Button available until you have been outbid - you cannot bid against yourself.
"Safe Bid" technology was developed for this platform. It requires a second click to confirm your bid amount. With this bid confirmation requirement, you
will no longer need to worry about either placing a bid by mistake or bidding an amount over what you are willing to pay.
For touch screen users, the series of images below show the new "Slide to Bid" bar. This "Safe Bid" feature is available on mobile devices.
Simply mail/fax a completed Absentee Bid Form or call our auction manager no later than 3 days prior to the auction to reserve a phone representative. Once confirmed, we will reserve a phone line specifically for your needs, be it one lot or hundreds. On auction day we will call you 5-10 lots before your item of interest. Your representative will bid on your behalf as if you were raising the paddle yourself. At each increment you will confirm your bid, your card will be raised and so forth - it's that easy!
Please do not wait until the day of the auction if you want to bid by phone - if a phone has not been reserved in advanced, we may not be able to accommodate your request.
Absentee bidding is offered in-house through Lang's. "+1 bidding" is an option with this method of bidding. Simply fill out the Absentee Bid Form and mail, fax or email it to us. Once received we will call to confirm your bid intentions. You also have the option of submitting your bids via email. Download our secure eMailable Absentee Bid Form, complete the form, save and email to Christina@LangsAuction.com.
*Please note, you will need the current version of Adobe Acrobat to use this form, otherwise please use the printable Absentee bid form above
MAX+ 1 Absentee Bidding:
When filling out your Absentee Bid Form you will need to indicate whether you would like the +1 bid feature. Absentee bids are executed on your behalf by our trained staff in competition with bids from other bidders. In the event two identical absentee bids are received, the first bid submitted will be accepted. In the event your maximum bid ties with a phone, absentee or online bid, +1 bidding allows us to bid one increment higher on your behalf to break the tie in your favor. If you want to take advantage of this type of bidding make sure to indicate +1 on your completed absentee bid form.
*Please note, your signed and completed Phone & Absentee Bid Form must be received and confirmed several days prior to the auction.
Paypal, all major credit cards, personal checks, money orders, travelers checks, cashier checks and bank wire transfers accepted.
A 21% buyer’s premium will be added to all successful bids.
The standard bid increments we follow are:
$0 - $200 = $10
$201 - $500 = $25
$501 - $1,000 = $50
$1,000 - $5,000 = $100
$5,001 - $10,000 = $250
$10,001 - $20,000 = $500
$20,001 - $50,000 = $1,000
$50,000 - $75,000 = $2,500
$75,001 - $100,000 = $5,000
$100,001 + = $10,000
