Yes, it may be possible to bid online for an in-room auction lot. This is a new service and is only offered by a limited number of auction rooms. Most still prefer to provide other methods of non-attending bidding, such as telephone or proxy. Internet speeds can present difficulties, both in the auction room itself as well as for a potential bidder, and connections can be lost. Do ask the auctions team whether they can take internet bids, and if not, then advise them which of the alternative methods you would like to use.
