RVT Auction: Live!...


I just watched the RVT auction live today at the auctioneers web site and listened to it on the phone on 09016 030024 (60p per minute thanks very much). I even recorded it.

Listen to the introduction to the bidding

The bidding started at 13:16 with an opening bid of £500,000 followed by 525, 550, 575, 600 etc...

Listen to is how the bidding starts...

700, 710, 720...

Listen to how it continues...

770, 775, 780...

Listen to how the bidding continues apace...

995, 1 million, 1 million & 5, 1 million and 10...

Listen to how it rises...

1 million & 80, 1 million & 85, anyone else? anyone? going for 1 million & 85, 1 million and 85 thousand.

...and finally listen to how it concludes.

Sold!

So that was £1,085,000 at 13:22 precisely.
