Absentee via Woody Auction
As a convenience to our bidders who cannot attend a sale in person, or online through LiveAuctioneers, Woody Auction will execute written bids on your behalf. Absentee bidders should complete the Absentee Bid Form and submit the written bid at least 24 hours in advance of the auction. Further, if Woody Auction receives written bids on a lot for identical amounts, and at the auction these are the highest bids on the lot, it will be sold to the person whose written bid was received first. Lots are bought for absentee bidders at the lowest possible price, which may be below the written bid price, subject to other bids. You may download our Absentee Bid Form and fax it to (316) 746-2145 or email it to You can also participate in phone bids by calling (316) 747-2694.

Shipping Your New Treasures

We proudly provide unparalleled in-house shipping services. As a result, we set the industry standard in the care we take to carefully wrap, pack, and ship your items for safe arrival. In addition, we package invoices in the order they are paid. Once your purchase has been packaged and shipping is determined, we will send a second invoice via LiveAuctioneers for the materials and shipping charges. Alternatively, buyers are able to call and pay the shipping and materials costs over the phone.

Outside Shipper

Woody Auction is able to pack and ship most auction items, but there are certainly lots when a professional pack and ship company will be required for large or heavy items. When you need a professional pack and shipper for items purchased from one of our auctions, this limited Shipper List is provided for your use in determining the costs and benefits of one over another. We are not in a position to recommend anyone; therefore we leave the decision up to you. An Internet search may be helpful for finding pack and ship companies in your area.

We require a written authorization from the purchaser to release property to any third party. You may fax our Shipping Release Form to (316) 746-2145 or email your authorization to
