SEALED BID AUCTION
For the sealed bid auctions, we provide at least one and a half days of viewing for each auction. This means you can come look around at the merchandise, count items, and prepare for your bid entries. We have an auction list and bid entry sheet available at the door. We end viewing at 11:30 on the last day. You can enter your bids under your approved website account by 10:30am (for registered bidders only) or in person by 11:30am in a drop box provided in the auction warehouse.
After 11:30am all bids are tallied. All winners are notified by 5:00pm via email. All invoices must be paid the following business day by 12:00 noon. There is a blue link at the top of your invoice, you can click on this and pay your invoice. This is the preferred payment method. Cash or Credit Card only in the cashier’s office the day of pickup until noon. Pick-up day is always the DAY AFTER the auction ends, not the day you receive your emailed invoice. We do not store items for buyers, you must make arrangements to pick-up on the pick-up day provided or we ask you not to bid.
There is a minimum bid requirement of $5 for each lot to sale. In the event of a tie, we will contact the buyers. Each winner is charged $25 more than the second highest bidder. For example, if you have a $300 bid on an item and the next closest bid is $200 you will be charged $225 not $300.
To register for our sealed bid auctions, you must attend in person during viewing times that are posted with every action date. You must arrive with driver’s license and credit/debit card which are both required to register. Once registration in person is established you will then be allowed access to an online account that will allow access to a bid sheet that you can submit remotely. All electronic submissions and emailed bids are due by 10:30am on auction end day. We are local pick-up only and do not ship freight to winning bidders.
We hope this clears up a lot of questions and if you have any more questions please click on the "Contact" tab and send us a message.
