How do I view upcoming auction cars on your website?
You may view all vehicles on our website by visiting our Vehicles
page. From there you can apply search filters and tailor your results within Upcoming Auction Vehicles, Past Auctions or All Vehicles.
How do I get into the viewing and auction?
If you have already purchased a catalogue, you may bring it to the auction to redeem for admission for two. If you have not purchased a catalogue, individual admission wristbands are available for purchase in the entry tent of each Gooding & Company auction site. A wristband allows access and re-entry to all viewing days and the auctions. Please be advised, priority seating in the auction tent is reserved for registered bidders and their guests. The admission cost will vary based on venue, so please reference our Auctions
page for details on each event.
I did not get any wristbands with my catalogue. How do I get in?
We do not ship wristbands out with our catalogues. If you have received our catalogue prior to an auction, you may bring the book itself or the order confirmation to our auction site and redeem it for two admission wristbands.
Do you ever run out of wristbands?
Don’t worry, we never run out of admission wristbands for our guests. Admission is available through the last day of each auction.
Is there reserved seating or a VIP pass available?
We do not provide VIP passes, as we strive to offer a VIP-level experience for every guest who attends our events. We do offer priority seating for bidders and their guests separate from general seating, to allow our auctioneer to facilitate the sale in the smoothest and most efficient manner possible.
I can't attend the auction personally. How can I watch remotely?
We offer live streaming of all our auctions, both in browser-based and mobile device formats. A link directing you to the live broadcast will be made available on Gooding & Company's homepage and throughout the site on the day of each event, and the live broadcast itself will begin streaming about 15 minutes before each auction.
Do I have to create an account to watch the auction?
No. Anyone can watch Gooding & Company auctions online or through our mobile apps.
Is there a delay to the video through the online bidding platform?
Gooding & Company prides itself on using industry-leading technology to stream video in 720p to your mobile device or computer with little to no latency or delay. This is offered solely through the bid.goodingco.com
portal and through our iOS
apps. If your connection is poor, the system will downgrade the video quality you receive, potentially sending only the audio feed to ensure that you are following the auction live. Gooding & Company offers a simultaneous broadcast through YouTube for a high-definition feed, and this video will occasionally encounter buffering issues which could lead to substantial delays between what you’re seeing and the live events in the auction room. Refreshing your webpage will get this video back to live, but buffering will continue to delay the feed.
I already have a Gooding & Company account, but my login information is not working on the online bidding platform.
Your Gooding & Company account is separate from your online bidding account. You may use the same login information, but changing your email and password on one platform does not automatically change it on the other. If the online bidding system says your email is already registered, please use the "Forgot Password?" option to reset your password for your online bidding account.
How can I figure out when a car will be up on the block?
An estimated 12-15 lots will pass over the block within one hour. This range should help you in determining when a chosen lot will be up for sale on the block.
How can I register to bid at an auction?
To bid at a Gooding & Company auction, you must first complete and submit the Bidder Registration Application
available on our website. You have the option of submitting your application through our website or downloading a PDF version. Please note that a Bank Letter of Guarantee is required to bid at our auctions. A sample Bank Letter is provided within our application. If you choose to download the PDF application, you can email, fax or mail the completed application to Gooding & Company using the contact details provided on the forms.
May I still bid on a vehicle if I am unable to attend the auction?
Yes. Gooding & Company offers Telephone, Absentee, and Online bidding for all our auctions. Please visit our Register to Bid
page and select your preferred method of bidding for further instructions. The general requirements for all methods of bidding include a completed Bidder Registration Application, a Bank Letter of Guarantee, and Driver’s license or Passport identification. Please note that we do not currently offer submission of Telephone & Absentee Bid Applications through our online registration system.
