THE SILENT AUCTION

A silent auction is a seamless method of fundraising at events where guests place their bid discreetly within a brochure rather than signalling an auctioneer.

We use the sealed bid technique, as it limits bidders to one bid per item. This has consistently proven to raise more money for charity and it allows multiple sales of auction items, a more efficient collection of monies, less intrusion to the event, quicker conclusion, less conflict with the live auction and its extremely exciting!

Here are some of the main reasons to use Impulse Decisions to deliver your silent auction:

 We do not charge any fees. All costs are built into the reserve prices;
 100% of the bids above the reserve price are profit for the charity;
 We specialise in luxury auction lots;
 We include free printing as part of the service;
 We can incorporate sponsor logos in the brochure at no cost;
 We can incorporate donated charity items at no cost;
 Our staff are highly experienced in fundraising;
 We provide a detailed financial breakdown post-event;
 The silent auction will not interfere with any other event activity;
 We do not pressure your guests into bidding.

We ensure that the silent auction is delivered to enhance the event experience for your guests. Our luxury items will create a great atmosphere between guests as they browse their brochures and bid with excitement. Our team are always on hand to support your guests when needed and to answer any of the questions that are asked about the items. The silent auction is an incredibly simple process that lends itself well to almost every type of event.

How our Silent Auctions work

As guests arrive our staff introduce them to the silent auction; letting them know how to bid and information about the items on offer. Some items are displayed in an area of the function room where there is the opportunity to generate large amounts of interest from guests. As guests enjoy a break between courses, members of staff will circulate the room and answer questions from guests about our luxury auction lots. This allows guests to gain a further insight into what is on offer.

As the evening runs the bidders will complete the silent auction brochures (they will each have one on their seats). The silent auction brochures then get collected by our staff at the end of the meal. Once all the forms are in, our team inform the highest bidders that they have won, collect payment and take them their item.

Please note – having a silent Auction at your event WILL NOT conflict with the main auction. Technology for your auction (iPads/tablets) is available upon request. If you would like to enquire about this service, please enquire below.
