Register as a bidder

A bidder can participate in timber sales events, and has full access to sale event information, results and contract documentation.  This is the user role for the timber buyer.

Bidders have:

  • the ability to bid and purchase timber
  • access to sale event details including maps and contract documentation.
  • full event search facilities
  • access to sale results and price information
  • automatic notification of sales events based on user preferences (market zone and product category)

Register as a viewer

A viewer has full access to sale event information, results and contract documentation, but cannot bid.  This is the user role for the local manager involved in valuing or managing contracts, but who does not generally purchase timber.

Viewers have:

  • access to sale event details including maps and contract documentation.
  • full event search facilities 
  • access to sale results and price information
  • automatic notification of sales events to which their company is invited and access to company contract documentation
