Sale Types

Below are the various auction methods that Evans Clarke National use to sell items.

Online Auctions

These are auctions where items are listed on our website with specified opening and closing times. You place your bids anytime up until the closing time. Selected items within the online auctions also have a Buy Now Price, meaning you can buy it at that price without having to wait for the auction to close.

These auctions can include assets that are being sold from our premises at 616 Torrens Rd Woodville Nth, SA or In-situ at the vendor's premises. If an asset is being sold in-situ it will have the location specified at the end of its description.

Traditional Auctions

This is where you attend in person at the location and bid 'live'. These can be either Traditional Onsite Auctions which are held at the premises of the business disposing of their assets or Traditional In-Rooms Auctions, which are held at our auction complex.

Traditional auctions also have a website absentee bidding facility for most auctions. These usually open 24 hours prior to the sale and close 1 hour prior to the sale. So you may inspect , go home and think about it and then place a bid on the internet if you cannot attend the auction. Please be aware that it is not live, it is simply an easy way to communicate to the auctioneer the amount you are willing to go up to. You will not see these items under my account as it is not live.

Online Webcast/Simulcast Traditional Auction

This is a service that is added to some traditional auctions to enable people to bid 'live' in real time, via the internet, whilst the auction is being conducted. You will not see these bids under my account.

Tenders and Sales

These are sales whereby offers are submitted in writing to us by the specific closing date and time. Offers are then referred to the vendor for acceptance.
