How to Buy
We have several easy ways for you to make a purchase; all you need to do is find your perfect items.
Witherell’s accepts phone bid requests up to the day before an auction. Please request a phone bid as early as possible.
On auction day, a Witherell’s Staff member will call you a few minutes before your lot comes up. Our staff member will bid for you as if you were at the auction yourself.
You can leave absentee bids by creating an account at witherells.com.
All of our Premier auctions are held live at our gallery (300 20th St., Sacramento, CA 95811). Parking is free. Our doors open 1 hour before the auction starts and registration continues during the sale. Once registered, a Witherell’s staff member will provide you with a paddle/bidder number.
Forms of payment we accept are cash, check or wire transfer.
Witherell’s uses two auction modes, both live and online. All of our themed auctions will be online. Live auctions will be a case-by-case situation. Both auction platforms will be listed with the posted auction.
You need to make an account on each auction host’s website for you to bid on our items. For questions regarding online bidding, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Winning a Bid
Once the auction closes, you will receive an invoice emailed to the address provided on your account. The forms of payment we accept include: check, cash, money order, QuickBooks bank transfer, or wire transfer (with a fee). For more payment information, please see our Payment Policy.
Once payment has arrived, we will input it through QuickBooks and email you a receipt for your purchase. Our Witherell’s shipper will then start working on packaging your lot(s).
