BIDDING IN THE ONLINE AUCTION: Once you are registered and have your User Name & Password, you may place bids as soon as a lot opens for bidding.

You are responsible for monitoring these close times. Please bid early to avoid disappointment. Bidder acknowledges that hardware malfunctions, software malfunctions, viruses, and similar issues do occur and are beyond the knowledge, scope, and control of Auctioneer. We are NOT responsible for your system malfunctions, connection to the internet or your e-mail client stopping any of our e-mails to you, concerning bid confirmations and/or outbid notifications. All lots for the on-line auctions shall be paid in accordance to the above payment terms prior to pick up. An invoice will be sent to your registered e-mail address within 24 hours following the conclusion of the auction. CLOSE OF BIDDING: For your convenience, the closing of items will begin on a staggered basis of 10 seconds for each item. See paragraph below regarding the Extended Ending feature. EXTENDED BIDDING: The items in the auction will be subject to a extended ending, whereas at the close of the auction, any bidding activity on an item within 3 minutes of the closing time will automatically extend the bidding for 3 more minutes past the time of the last bid. The bidding on that lot will continue to remain open in 3 minute intervals as long as there is bidding activity within 3 minutes of the previous bid. Once there is no bidding activity for a 3 minute period, the bidding on that item will close. For example, if a lot is supposed to close at 10:00 AM but a last minute bid is placed at 9:59 AM, bidding will be extended until 10:02 AM. If another bid is placed on an item at 10:02 AM, bidding will then close at 10:05 AM, unless subsequent bids are placed. METHODS OF BIDDING Bidding can be made using two methods on our website- “Your Bid” and “Your Maximum.” “Your Bid:” This feature allows the bidder to input a single bid as in a live auction. For example: the bid for item #1 is currently $2,000 placed by bidder A. Bidder B wishes to bid $2,500. By placing a bid of $2,500 in the “Your Bid” box, Bidder B now has the current winning bid. If Bidder A wishes, he/she may bid again, continuing the auction cycle. “Your Maximum:” This feature does your bidding without the bidder having to constantly view, log in, and bid on an item. Setting a maximum online is much like coming to a live auction with a preset spending limit in mind. The program will bid for you, in the prescribed increments, and only up to your spending limit for the item. For example: item #3 is currently at $5,000 with Bidder A having the winning bid. Bidder B wants to place a bid and is willing to spend as much as $7,500 for item #3. If Bidder B places a maximum bid of $7,500, the price of the item rises only to $5,050. Bidder A returns to the item online and places his/her maximum bid at $5,250. The program automatically does the bidding: A-$5,100, B-$5,150, A-$5,200, B-$5,250. The bidding stops at $5,250 with Bidder B winning because the next bid would be $5,300, which is more than Bidder A’s limit. Maximum bids are kept confidential. Any bidder can raise a bid or a maximum bid at any time prior to the close of the auction. A maximum bid is kept confidential, and Bidder authorizes Auctioneer and Program to place bids on his/her behalf up to the amount of the maximum bid. All questions or disputes must be resolved immediately; no changes or adjustments will be made at a later date. Auctioneer reserves the right to reopen bidding. Auctioneer decisions will be final. PLEASE REFRESH YOUR PAGE! Please remember to refresh your page during the bidding. The bidding page you are viewing shows you the bid at the time you logged on to that page. YOU MUST REFRESH YOUR PAGE EVERY SEVERAL SECONDS to view accurate bids. This is particularly important during the final minutes of bidding for an item. SERVER & SOFTWARE TECHNICAL ISSUES: Online bidding is offered as a courtesy.
