How to Buy

When bidding by phone, Stefek’s will call you during the auction a few lots before your specified lot is to be auctioned. You are able to bid live, with a Stefek’s phone representative acting as a liaison between you and the auctioneer.
Absentee bids are bids you leave in advance. You can call in advance to set a maximum bid amount on individual lots and Stefek’s will bid on your behalf up to that amount during the auction. You can call to set your absentee bid or complete the Online Absentee Bid Form. Absentee bids will be accepted until 4:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time the day of the auction.
Attend the auction in person. It is free and open to the public. Bidders can pre-register or register upon arrival. Please bring photo identification, method of payment, and if applicable tax exempt number. Once registered, bidders will receive a paddle. Door opens an hour and a half prior to the auction.
Stefek’s Auctions are administered live on LiveAuctioneers and Bidsquare. You may register to bid with LiveAuctioneers or Bidsquare prior to the auction. Online bids are automatically transferred to us during the auction.
