Advance Bidding is our online absentee bid system which is available for all James G. Murphy Co. auctions. Registered users may leave advance bids directly from any of our online auction catalogs (login required).
It is the policy of JGM Auctions to respect the privacy of all individuals and as such will use information submitted via this site for internal purposes.
Advance bids are considered an "absentee bid". By placing an Advance Bid you authorize the Auctioneer to bid on your behalf. The auctioneer will purchase at the lowest possible price up to your maximum bid. Advance bidding is available at all of our auctions as soon as the auction catalog(lot by lot listing) for that auction is added to the site. To register for Advance bidding go create a new account on our Registration page. You have the option, at the time of registration, to also request to become a "MurphyLive! bidder" (see terms for MurphyLive!). Advance bidding closes 1 hour prior to the auction starting time. At that time the high bid for any lot from the Advance Bidding will be submitted to the auction floor. Those bids will be bid with the live bidders, as if the Advance bidder were present, up to the amount of the Advance bid. You will NOT be notificed if you are out bid on the auction floor. All successful Advance bidders will be notified by phone and/or email by the next business day following the auction.
