Live Auctions

31st August 2022

Lawrences are now operating the Auctionet bidding system; one of Europe’s leading marketplaces for auctions, enabling you to take part in the bidding from anywhere in the world.

With a 40 percent increase in web traffic over the past 12 months, online auctions are now being established as a key component for auctioneers and we are now able to provide a truly integrated auction management and logistics package that enables us to have a global reach to ensure that the items are sold at the best market price possible. 

Our aim is to provide every client with the best experience possible for selling and buying collectables and antiques in our auctions.  You can browse our sales, place your bids, buy items, pay online and have your items shipped at fixed prices, all with a single login!

If you haven’t already registered for an account, you’ll need to do that first.  Go to or download the Auctionet App.  It only takes a moment and you're ready to bid!

Live Auctions 

Whether you are a UK-based or an international bidder, the Auctionet online live bidding system allows you to bid live, in real-time, whilst soaking up the saleroom atmosphere with live video and audio feeds, placing your bids as the items come up. Alternatively, you can access each auction and place bids on items anytime between when the sale is published online until the live auction finishes. At the end of the live auction, the highest bidder wins the lot. You may also attend these sales and bid in person. 

Timed Online Auctions 

These auctions have no specific sale date as they run for a set period of time, usually between 7 and 14 days.  Bidders can browse, register and place bids on items anytime between the start and end dates. You can log in and increase your bid at any time. At the end of the sale, the highest bidder wins the lot. 

Other Ways to Bid 

Please see our Buying and Selling page for further details on how to bid and buy in our auctions.
