Buying at auction
You must create a user account with Bukowskis in order to participate in our beverage auctions. Create an account here.
The auctions are held over the course of three days, eight times a year – four in the spring and four in the autumn. The beverages are displayed on Bukowskis’ website 13 days before the auction begins, presented with an image and description. You will find Systembolaget’s beverage auctions as a separate category on Bukowskis’ website.
Selling at auction
The valuation of objects submitted for auction is an ongoing process. Register the bottles you would like to have valued by completing the valuation form at systembolaget.se. Please provide as much detail as possible when completing the form to make the valuation process simpler and quicker. Systembolaget’s valuation expert will carry out an initial assessment and if the object is considered to be of interest for selling, you will receive a preliminary valuation. For further information on submission and valuation, please contact email@example.com
Objects that have received a positive valuation notification should be handed in to Bukowskis – see offices and opening hours – taking the valuation notification with you when you hand the objects in. Once the objects have been handed in, we will carry out a final valuation and set a reserve price.
