How to bid
It’s safe, easy, and exciting to bid in SEI Club auctions. Auctions are for SEI Club members only. If you are not a member and would like to participate, kindly apply for membership here. Upon applying for membership you will be required to present government issued identification. You may also be required to provide a bank reference and place a reserve with SEI Club to create a membership account. Once you have registered, the fun begins! Here are the step-by-step instructions for participating. For each members auction you receive an announcement about the particular lot at least 4 weeks prior to the auction date. Each email includes the auction day, time, and easy instructions for participating as a private member.
The evening of the sale you can easily view the results of the sale on the SEI Club private members-only website. If you are the successful bidder you are sent an invoice as well as all the information required for payment processing and retrieval of your art.
How to consign
SEI Club art seeks consignments regularly throughout the year. While many sales occur through private auctions, SEI Club also manages and facilitates private sales utilizing our highly exclusive network of potential buyers. We may review any item you’d like so we can help you determine whether an SEI Club Auction or a private sale is most well-suited to your object(s). Upon finalizing the details of your consignment, you will receive a Consignor agreement which outlines all the terms as well as provides a comprehensive list of the items you have included.
