“Proxibid has partnered with Classic Carriages to bring Internet bidding to this auction,” said Bruce Hoberman, chief executive officer of Proxibid. “People who want to bid on items but are unable to do so in person can log on, bid and win, just as if they were at the live auction. We are thrilled to be able to add value to an auction of this caliber by providing the online bidding component.”

Bidders who want to participate in Classic Carriages’ Collector Car Auction should register online at prior to the auction. Once registered, bidders can pre-bid or leave an absentee bid on items they hope to purchase. Bidders do not need to be registered to view the auction catalog, however, they must be registered to participate in the live auction.

Online bidding via Proxibid will also be available in the bidders lounge during the live auction. Several kiosks will be outfitted with computers where bidders can enter their offers for the car on the auction block. This convenience will allow bidders the opportunity to bid and win, while relaxing and socializing in the lounge.
