How to Buy


Find It

Find something that suits your fancy? You should review each item in person whenever possible. Otherwise, review our detailed condition reports and multiple images online. Still have questions? Contact one of our specialists or cataloguers to ask additional questions or request more photos.


Bid On It!

In Person

Come to the auction! We cater each event, and registration is easy; you just need a photo I.D. and a credit card.

Absentee and Telephone

Can’t make it? Fill out our bidder registration form and submit it via our website, email, or fax at least 24 hours before the sale. We aren’t kidding, time makes a difference in completing your request. Sooner is always better.

For absentee bids, one of our trusty auctioneers will bid on your behalf and attempt to purchase the lot for you at the lowest price possible, allowing for other bids and reserves, up to your given maximum bid amount.

For telephone bids, one of our employees will call you a few minutes before your lot comes up and bid live with you over the phone.

App and Online

On the move? Download Moran Mobile to view upcoming and past catalogues, watch your favorite lots and place bids. *iOS App coming soon*

If you want to bid, register for the auction 24 hours in advance; otherwise, you can simply follow along when the auction begins.


Buyer’s Premium and Taxes
Don’t forget that our buyer’s premium and any applicable state tax will be added to the hammer price of the items you purchase.


Pay for it

Congratulations, you are the winning bidder!
We ask that you pay for your purchase(s) within 5 business days. It’s important to note that any payments made after that window will incur a 2% late fee added to your invoice.

To avoid all that, we make paying for your purchases easy. Pay via Moran’s secure online option with your ACH bank details, or credit card (for an additional 2% buyer’s premium) or send us a wire transfer. You can always snail mail a check if you prefer that method.


Get It

Moran’s does not ship or provide estimates for shipping. A list of our recommended shippers is below; you are welcome to contact them directly for quotes. Once you know who you would like to use for shipping (or if you are sending a third party to pick up on your behalf), fill out the release form and submit it online, or download it and send it via email or fax. If you are picking up an item, call ahead to expedite the process.
