Registering and Placing Bids

Before participating in each auction you must register for the specific sale in which you would like to participate. You can register for a sale online by clicking “Register to Bid” on the auction page, or in person at one of our auction previews. If a first time user, you will be prompted to create an account and provide the required information; if you are an existing Treadway user, you need only confirm the submitted details remain accurate and agree to the Conditions of Sale for the auction.

Create an Account

  1. Go to the home page and click the “Sign In” button in the top right hand corner.
  2. In the next window, you’ll either “Sign In” or “Create an Account”
  3. Fill out the form with your contact information and desired password and click the “Save & Continue” button.
  4. You will then receive a confirmation to confirm and activate your Treadway account.

Live Bid Online

To bid live in any auction online, simply click on the auction of interest, and register to bid in the auction. Once your registration has been approved, you may login on the day of the auction to follow along and place your bids online by clicking on the “Place Bid” button, which will surface at our standard bidding increments.

Telephone Bid

Bidders may register telephone bid requests by downloading the BID FORM.  Complete the form and EMAIL to us or by calling us directly 513-321-6742.

On the day of the auction, a Treadway representative will call you approximately five lots before your item is scheduled to be sold. They will communicate to you the bidding activity and will relay your bids to the auctioneer at your discretion. Please note we can only accept telephone bids for lots with a low estimate of $500 or above unless otherwise noted online. Telephone bids may be requested up to 2 hours prior to the auction start time.

Absentee Bid

An absentee bid is a bid that is left in advance with the auction house for the auctioneer to execute on your behalf. It should be the highest price you are willing to pay exclusive of buyer’s premium and applicable sales tax. Absentee bids are always confidential, and bids are executed at the lowest price possible by the auctioneer according to reserves and competing bids.

If there are tied bids, the bidder who registered first is given precedence. All absentee bids are time stamped. You do not need to be present or available during the auction to participate as an absentee bidder. Bidders may place absentee bids online by logging into their account through the “Login” button in the top right corner of our website. You will find this feature when you click “View Sale” from the auction schedule page. Simply click the lot you wish to bid on. Next, you will need to select the “Register to Bid” button, which will prompt first time buyers for additional information. Once you are registered, select from the dropdown menu of bidding increments the highest dollar amount you are willing to pay exclusive of buyer’s premium. When you have entered the amount, select the “Place Bid” button. Bids may be placed online up to the opening of the lot for live bidding in the auction.
