  • Join us at our Auction Gallery: Brunk Auctions – 117 Tunnel Road Asheville, North Carolina

    When you arrive at our gallery, go to the registration desk to register for a bidder number. You will need to show a valid driver’s license and a major credit card. If you do not wish to use a credit card, you may also pay by cash or wire transfer.

    By Fax, Email, Mail or In Person:

    Print and complete our Bid Form (PDF) indicating your maximum bid on each lot, excluding the buyer’s premium. Lot numbers and a short description of the items should also be indicated on the form. Return this form to us by fax (828-254-6545), scan and email to info@brunkauctions.com or regular mail (P.O. Box 2135, Asheville, NC 28802). After the bid form has been received, you will be contacted via phone or email to confirm receipt, except on auctions days. Please allow sufficient time for surface mail.

    Be sure to sign and date the form on the signature line at the bottom. We require a Major Credit Card number to secure your absentee bid.

    Absentee bids left with us are executed confidentially and competitively. If your maximum bid is $500 and the bidding stops at $250, the lower price is the selling price to you. However, you must be prepared to go as high as your maximum bid. We never disclose to anyone any information about absentee bids.

  • During the auction, a member of our staff will call you about 3 minutes before the item comes up, and act as your proxy at the auction. We sell an item about every 45 seconds and you must be prepared to bid quickly. We sell in the numerical order indicated in the catalog, and we sell about 70-90 lots an hour. You must be prepared to bid the opening bid.

    Online:
    Sign in to an existing account or register for a new account. Click bid by phone. Enter preferred phone number, secondary phone number (not required), insurance bid (not required) and then click “Register Phone Bid”.
