Bidding

Bid In Person

Join us at our Saleroom: Brunk Auctions –  117 Tunnel Road Asheville, North Carolina

When you arrive at our gallery, go to the registration desk to register for a bidder number. You will need to show a valid Driver’s License and a major credit card. If you do not wish to use a credit card, you must provide a bank letter of credit indicating your account number and the level of credit available. This letter must be provided prior to the auction so the information can be verified with your bank. You may also pay by cash or wire transfer.

Leave an Absentee Bid

Sign In to an existing account or Register for a new account with Brunkauctions.com to place your bids.

By Fax, Mail or In Person:

Print and complete our Absentee Bid Form (PDF) indicating your maximum bid on each lot, excluding the buyer’s premium.

Return this form to us by fax (828-254-6545), or regular mail (PO Box 2135, Asheville, NC 28802). Please allow sufficient time for surface mail.

Be sure to sign the form at the bottom. We require a Major Credit Card number to secure your absentee bid. Alternately, you may arrange a cash deposit of 1/3 of your bid total.

Absentee bids left with us are executed confidentially and competitively. If your maximum bid is $500 and the bidding stops at $200, the lower price is the selling price to you. However, you must be prepared to go as high as your maximum bid. We never disclose to anyone any information about absentee bids.

Bid By Telephone

During the auction, a member of our staff will call you about 3 minutes before the item comes up, and act as your proxy at the auction. We sell an item about every 45 seconds and you must be prepared to bid quickly. We sell in the numerical order indicated in the catalog, and we sell about 70-90 lots an hour.
