Our free Silent Auction service is simple yet effective.

We provide brochures containing a range of auction lots which are then placed around your event. Guests then place sealed bids on as many items as they wish and hand their brochure in to a member of our staff throughout the evening.

When the auction closes, we notify and collect payment from the highest bidder on each item. The total amount raised from the auction is then transferred to your chosen bank account within 7 working days of your event.

Why a Silent Auction?

Free

Our silent auction service is free of charge, helping us raise the maximum amount we can for your chosen cause or charity.

Unobtrusive

Silent auctions can run in the background of your event and don’t need to be the central focus to be successful.

Appeals to majority of the audience

Silent auctions are simple and easy and to not scare off potential bidders as bidding is private.

Auction Lots

Our silent auctions include a variety of auction lots to make sure that it appeals to every audience.

Auction items available include Holidays & Short Breaks, Hospitality Days, Artwork, Sports, Film & TV Memorabilia

In a standard brochure there will be between 40 and 50 lots included in the auction. A wide range of items will appeal to all bidders and the sealed bidding system encourages guests to place their highest bids at the first attempt.

All of the memorabilia included in our auctions is supplied by our sister company AutographItNow, an AFTAL (Autograph Fair Trade Association) approved registered dealer.  All memorabilia items are supplied with certificates of authenticity.
