Proxy Bidding

Proxy Bidding is our online absentee bid system which is available for all live James G. Murphy Co. auctions.


Once the Proxy bid button is clicked the customer will be redirected to the Bidcaller platform.  Registration on Bidcaller and acceptance of the Terms & Conditions is required to leave a Proxy bid.

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.

Proxy bids are considered an "absentee bid". By placing a Proxy bid you authorize the auctioneer to bid on your behalf. The auctioneer will purchase the item at the lowest possible price up to your maximum bid. Proxy bidding is available at all of our live auctions as soon as the auction catalog (lot by lot listing) for that auction is added to the site. Proxy bidding closes 1 hour prior to the auction starting time. At that time, the high bid for any lot from the Proxy bidding tool will be submitted to the auction floor. Those bids will be bid with the live bidders, as if the Proxy bidder were present, up to the amount of the Proxy bid. You will NOT be notified if you are out bid on the auction floor. All successful Proxy bidders will be notified by phone and/or email by the next business day following the auction.

"I recently auctioned several pieces of construction equipment with James G. Murphy Co. after consideration of several auction companies in the region.  The companies representative, was fair in his assessment of the market value of items I placed for auction and honored all promises made during the auction preparation process.  Ultimately, my expectations were exceeded as my equipment sold for well over the estimate. Should I need the services of an auction company again, I would not hesitate to call James G. Murphy Co."
