Seller Information

We meticulously hand pick consignments to offer our international clients only the world's finest motor cars and would therefore recommend that you consign at the earliest opportunity.

If you wish to inquire about consigning your quality motor vehicle, please call +1 519 352 4575 or +44 (0) 20 7851 7070 or to speak to one of our knowledgeable car specialists.

RM Auctions prides itself on offering a wide variety of bidding options as explained in detail below. We strongly encourage those interested in particular lots to contact one of our auction specialists in advance of the sale to obtain an objective, fair and honest condition report on any cars you have an interest in bidding on. As we are a company built on customer service and return clientele, you can be sure that the car you purchase at our auction is the car described in advance of the sale. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any concerns or questions.

As an absentee bidder, an RM Auctions representative will bid on your behalf until your bid is sufficient to purchase the lot or your maximum bid is reached. Should two absentee bidders place identical maximum bids, the bidder whose bid form was received first shall take precedence. Click here to register as an absentee bidder.

As a telephone bidder, an RM Auctions representative will contact you during the auction three to five lots before the lot you wish to bid on and will execute the bidding on your behalf in the auction room. Please note that telephone bidding is not available for lots with a low estimate below $2,000. Please arrange to submit absentee bids as described above for such lots.
