What kind of auctions do we conduct?

Zettlemoyer Auction Co. LLC conducts auctions using several different methods; such as onsite, online only and simulcast (a combination of the two).

Onsite Auctions

Our onsite auctions are where bids are taken from bidders at the auction’s location or with absentee bidding; when available.

When registering to bid for our onsite auctions; first, stop in at our mobile office to register for your bidder number. Please have your driver’s license available for the clerk.

Online Auctions

HiBid and Proxibid are the two online platforms that we are currently using to support online bids. Each auction listed has a complete catalog listing all of the items that are part of that auction. Each lot includes a full description with photos and the bidding process.

To bid on these auctions; registration on that website is required. If you have any questions about any lot; please email us at or call us at 610.395.8084.

High-resolution photos are available upon request. Be sure to read all of the information under Terms and Conditions, Payment Information, Preview and Shipping/Pickup for each auction. This information is different for each auction.

Prebids or Real time bidding is available on both sites. You may enter your maximum bid,you may bid while the auction is closing or you may do a combination of the two.

Simulcast Auctions

These auctions are onsite auctions which also offer the availability of bidding online while the items are being sold in real time by an auctioneer at the auction location. These are also conducted on either HiBid or Proxibid.

Absentee Bids

For those unable to attend the auction or who are uncomfortable bidding online, we offer an absentee bid service as a convenience to our patrons. Contact us for additional information.
