Registering for our auctions

All of our auction sales are held through either the  HiBid Online Auction platform or through Invaluable. 


The link for current auction is always on our home page. Simply select the "View Auction Here" button 

Always review terms and conditions prior to bidding. This information covers auction preview and pick up, buyers fees, credit card premiums, shipping options, etc.

How to Bid:

When you are ready to bid on an item, choose the “Place Bid” button. The pop up window will notify you of the next available minimum bid.

You can bid the next available minimum bid or place your maximum bid and the Hibid platform will automatically bid for you up to this value. When you have entered your desired value you, click “Confirm Bid” to verify and place your bid.


Keep all your favorite items in the same place! Choose the “Watch” button on any item listing to add it to your watch list. To access your watch list, click the “Watches” blue button, located in the far upper right corner. From your watch list, you can monitor if you are currently winning an item, monitor your high bids and place new bids.

Email Notifications:

Unless you change your preferred email settings, you will receive email notifications for bids placed, if you are outbid on an item, or if you win an item at the end of an auction. If you are not receiving email notifications directly into your inbox, check your “trash” and “promotions” inboxes. If you cannot find them or are not receiving emails at all, please contact Brisbane Auction Galleries and we will verify your account settings.

Brisbane Auction Galleries is happy to offer absentee bidding to anyone that are not tech savvy or prefer not to negotiate with the online platform.
