The 2020 Klawervlei Farm Sale is now online and can be viewed at www.klawervlei.co.za
This auction will be hosted by New Zealand Bloodstock’s Gavelhouse.com, with the online sale set to take place from June 15th and 21st.
Once the site is live in early June, buyers will be able to register to bid. When their registration has been completed online, their bidding application will be reviewed before being approved.
The catalogue will be launched on 15 June and bidding will run through until the final countdown from 1pm on Sunday 21 June. Each Lot closes in its own time slot, starting with Lot 1. If a bid is placed in the final 30 seconds of that Lots auction, another 30s is added on and this will happen indefinitely until there are no further bids. Each time the auction auto-extends, it pushes back the closing time of subsequent Lots.
If a horse passes in on the site, it remains there with its reserve price visible in case interested parties would like to make an offer.
Bidding increments are set as follows:
Minimum opening bid R5000
R5,000 – R10,000 R1,000 increment
R10,000 – R 30,000 R2,000 increment
R30,000 – R60,000 R5,000 increment
R60,000 – R150,000 R10,000 increment
R150,000 – R800,000 R20,000 increment
