Our Company Overview
Bekker Auctioneers is a young emerging firm based in the Southern Cape – we are fast growing into a well-known and trusted name in the industry.
We combine experience, history and tradition with a fresh, youthful energy which merges trusted traditional auctioneering with the latest online technology and innovation.
We specialise in the auctioneering of all types of properties and movable assets, whether big or small.
Due to our ever-changing world, the needs of people and the effects of Covid-19, the auctioneering industry has changed forever, but for the good.
There will always be a place for well organised live traditional auctions, however the days of traditional auctions only are long gone. A combination of online and traditional auctions will be the new norm and is here to stay.
We therefore have recently introduced a tried and tested online platform from the UK. It is being used by some of the largest auctioneering firms in South Africa and throughout the world. This platform allows us to reach thousands more clients thereby making auctions significantly more accessible to a larger audience
The platform is user friendly and will attract people who previously may have been intimidated by auctions or who could not spare the time to attend a live auction.
Anyone can now partake in our auctions from anywhere as long as there is a good internet connection.
We offer the following auctioneering platforms:
Traditional live on site auctions
These on-site auctions will re-commence as soon as COVID-19 legislation allows.
Timed online auction
Timed auctions take place without an auctioneer calling the sale. Each lot can be bid on from the leisure of your own home or office for a defined time period. At the end of this period, the bidder who has submitted the highest bid wins the lot, subject to confirmation by the seller.
