How Do Online Only Auctions Work?
Review the items in the online auction, you can place pre-bids on items now until the catalog goes live. On the specified date and time the auction begins to close, you can click on the "live catalog" icon and you will have a live view of the items as they begin to close. The first 12 items will pop up with countdown timers on them. You can bid along until no bids are placed for the final one minute. When no more bids are placed in the final minute, the lot closes and the person with the high bid is the winner.
A few things to remember when placing your bids:
You can place your highest bid amount when entering your bid. The system will bid on your behalf. You won’t need to watch your items throughout the auction – the system takes care of your bids for you! Please note that the system bids as if you were bidding – for example: If an item has a bid of $100 and you enter your maximum bid of $300 – the system will only go up to your next bid increment and bid $110 for you. If someone else enters a bid of $120 on that item the system will then bid again for you at $130, and so on up to your highest or maximum bid. It doesn’t automatically bid your highest bid first thing.
Our auctions have a Soft Close. What does Soft Close mean? Simply put, it means that the bidding ends when all bidders have quit participating. There is no last minute steal or bid sniping - it's like a live auction, the auctioneer holds on until everyone has their bids in and no further bids are received. An item will not officially close until no bids have been put forth for 1 or 2 minutes, depending on the auction.
Please note when the pick up date and time is – we set that with very specific reasons in mind. Most of our online auctions are being held for people who may be moving and have a date that all items need to be removed from the house, etc. You must be able to attend the pick up date between the times noted, be sure of those before you place bids.
If you do not pick up your items during the advertised pick up date and times, we do not hold onto your item for you. You are automatically billed through our system and your item will be disposed of.
For most of our online auctions we will have an Open House/Preview. This is a time where you can attend the residence and touch and feel the items that you are interested in. If you are unsure of any item, please make sure to attend the Open House/Preview or contact the Auctioneers prior to the Open House/Preview to get further information on specific items. We are not at the location with the items throughout the day – so it’s very difficult for the Auctioneers to get last minute information.
For online auctions payment will be made by credit card only. Your card on file will be charged after the close of the auction. Remember that there is a 15% buyers premium.
