Bidding In Person
Bidding in person is as easy as 1-2-3. First, please have a government-issued form of ID out and ready so that our staff can register you. Second, register at our front desk with one of our staff members. A valid Visa or MasterCard will be required for first-time bidders to create an account with Regency Auction House. Finally, once in your seat, you must raise your paddle until the auctioneer acknowledges your bid for the amount he/she has stated. The bidding will continue for each lot, until one final bidder remains.
Bidding by phone is a great way to get in on the action at Regency Auction House. To begin, you must first register with Regency. To do so, you must fill out this form and submit your bids a minimum of 72 hours prior to the auction you wish to take part in. Once received and processed, a staff member will acknowledge receipt and registration and request any additional information that may be needed. Once the auction has begun, phone bidders will have the opportunity to bid on the current lot.
If you cannot make it to the auction or bid by phone, absentee bidding is a great option. Simply submit the Absentee Bid Form . On the form, make sure to include the top limit of each bid in the amount that correlates with the appropriate bidding increment. Bids with improper bid increments will be taken at the lower bid amount. Please see our list of bid increments below.

Getting Auction Estimates
Getting an appraisal is the first step to sell an item. Regency Auction House can give you an appraisal based on a description and photos of the item you wish to sell. You can submit a form for an appraisal HERE.
Decision to sell
Regency Auction House will make the selling of your property quick and easy. Whether you want to sell it outright or consign it to the auction.
Based on the auction estimates, you and Regency Auction House specialists will decide whether your property is appropriate for sale at auction. We will also recommend an appropriate venue and possible sale date. If you decide to proceed, you will sign a contract, and Regency Auction House will take the property in for cataloguing and photography.
If you decide to consign to Regency Auction House, we will recommend the appropriate auction sale for your items to be sold at. We will then fill out a consignment contract. The contract will list all items and fees which apply to your consignment, such as pick-up fees if applicable, insurance, advertising, commission rates, etc..
We offer competitive commission rates. Please contact the gallery for more information.
Photographs, Illustrations and Screen Shots : Unless otherwise explicitly set forth in the catalog description for an individual item, all photographs, illustrations and screen shots are furnished solely for reference purposes and not as a statement, representation or warranty that the image depicted is the exact item offered.
All prospective bidders should note that all items in our catalog are sold in “as is” condition. We do our best to properly describe all materials herein, but normal wear and tear is common due to the fragile nature of the items due to age.
Please remember that the buyer is responsible for all shipping charges and arrangements from item location to the buyers door. Many of the items in our auctions are fragile and are unusual in size and weight. Because of this, they may require special shipping and handling arrangements. We can recommend local shippers, including our local UPS Store, upon request.
