Bidding At An
Ahlers & Ogletree Auction

When it comes to choosing which auction house you buy from, it comes down to three fundamental elements: robust and intriguing lot selections, bidding security, and ease of fulfillment. At Ahlers & Ogletree, we excel in each of these areas. Our experts meticulously research and evaluate every item we bring up for auction to ensure quality and value. Our bidding platform enables live online and absentee bidding when you cannot be present for in-person bidding. What’s more, our team will work with you and your preferred packing and shipping service so you receive your purchased items as quickly and carefully as possible.

The Bidding Process

No matter where you are in the world, you have full access to bid on any lot at any of our auctions. From live in-person and online bidding to telephone and absentee bidding, we will ensure you have full and complete access to bid on every item you wish.


We strive to make the payment process as seamless and secure as possible. For your added convenience, we gladly accept credit card, check, wire transfer and cash payments.


After each auction, you will have ten (10) business days to make full payment and have your items shipped within 20 business days by your preferred packing and shipping service. We offer shipping on select lots or are happy to provide a list of recommended shippers upon your request. Whichever shipping method you choose, we suggest getting your shipping quote before bidding.
