From the start of the auction at 08.30 a.m. until the close of the sale, the bidding button is visible in every lot in the catalogues. You click on the bidding button if you want to make a bid.

The bidding overview shows all lots for which you have made bids. Click on ‘Akkoord’ if you agree to all bids listed in the bidding overview.

After you have clicked on ‘Akkoord’, you will be shown your details and you will be able to check them. Please check in particular that your email address is correct. After you have clicked on ‘Verzenden’, a notice will appear that you must confirm your bids through your email.
You will receive a provisional bidding email in your mailbox that contains a link to confirm your bids. Check your bids and the invoice address. Your bids are final when you have clicked on ‘Akkoord’. You will receive a confirmation email.

Viewing your bids

Your confirmed bids are stored in your account under the option ‘Mijn bevestigde biedingen’. You can view the bids there for four weeks.
Bids you have not yet completed are included in ‘Mijn openstaande biedingen’.

Notification of your bid

After the close of a sale, the results of the auction are posted on this website in the course of the next day.
If you wish to receive an alert when the results are available on this website, you may subscribe to the email alert by ticking ‘mailalert’ in your account.

You will receive a notice only when goods are awarded to you. In that case, you will receive the invoice by email on the day of the close. The goods must then be picked up in the next week (following payment). The invoice will state how you may schedule an appointment to pick up the goods.

In one or two cases, goods are not awarded. There may be different reasons for this. For instance, the Public Prosecution Service may decide at the very last moment that, in connection with an ongoing investigation, it does not wish to sell a person’s property at this stage after all.
The reason in a specific case is not communicated. The goods involved may be offered at a later auction. 

Payment of purchased goods

If any goods have been awarded to you, you will receive an invoice by email. The invoice will state your payment options. The invoice will also include a code that you must use to schedule an appointment in the digital appointment calendar. You may do so after DRZ has processed your payment. Scheduling an appointment is mandatory; goods cannot be picked up without an appointment.

Payment methods

You have two options when paying your invoice. Payment is fast and easy through iDEAL. The invoice will include a direct link to iDEAL. If you wish to transfer the amount, you may do so. You will then transfer the amount to IBAN number NL39 INGB 0705 0031 75, stating your payment reference and customer number. You will receive a payment confirmation by email when your payment has been processed.
Transfers are subject to a slightly longer processing period than payments made through iDEAL.

Scheduling a pick-up appointment

You pick up your goods at the location stated on your invoice. Scheduling an appointment for picking up goods is mandatory. You can only schedule an appointment when you have paid for your goods.
You must use the digital appointment calendar for scheduling an appointment and for picking up goods at the DRZ locations of Soesterberg, Bleiswijk and Hoogeveen. Your invoice will include a code for scheduling the appointment. You must schedule an appointment by telephone for picking up goods at another location. Please call +31 (0)88-1524000 (open from Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.).

You must bring the invoice to your appointment.

If you have received a code for scheduling an appointment, please go to the appointment calendar .

Costs for late pick-up/non-pick-up

If goods are not picked up in the collection period after the auction, DRZ will charge costs for late pick-up. The goods may then be picked up for another week. You will pay 25 euros per working day per awarded item as from the Monday after the collection period. If you pick up your goods in the week after the collection period, you will pay these costs at the desk by PIN payment. Paying these costs in cash is not possible.

If you still fail to pick up the goods after this extra collection period, the sale will be terminated. In that case, you will not be entitled to the goods any longer. In the case of goods from the Sale at registration, you pay compensation of €250 for the additional expenses incurred.

If any goods from the sale by auction are involved, you will be held liable for the additional costs incurred and for the amount that the goods fetch less at the next auction.
