What is an auction?

An Auction is a service that offers buying or selling items through bidding, live auction or online auction. The highest bid wins the item.

What is the benefit of buying items through an auction?

How can I participate in an auction?

HMR Auctions conducts weekly auctions at three auction centres. Click here to see the exact locations. On-site
auctions and sealed biddings are announced by email, mobile and telemarketing communication channels and published in recognized national newspapers. Register and pay the refundable bid deposit. You will then collect your bid number which should be raised when you agree with the bid request of the auctioneer. The auctioneer will call your number out if you are the first bid number that he spots. When there are no more bids the last (highest) bidder is declared the winner by the auctioneer.
