Beginning at the stated closing time, the auction software will conclude bidding for one or more lots each minute in catalog order with the following exception: if a bid is placed with 1 minute or less remaining for that lot, bidding for that lot will remain open until 1 minute passes without any further bid advances.
Until the auction begins to close, the bidding software will notify bidders by email when they have been outbid.
PLACING A "MAXIMUM AUTO BID"
Please be aware that when placing your "Maximum Bid", the website will bid on your behalf up to your set maximum bid by the preset bid increments. Example: The current bid is $1000 and the bidder enters a maximum bid of $5000. The system will bid at the preset increment until the bidders "Maximum bid" is exceeded. At that point, the bidder will be notified that he/she has been outbid (if that option is selected when registering). High bidder will only pay one increment more than the competing bidder. Please watch the auction closing time stop clock to determine exactly when the lot will close.
TIE BID PRECEDENCE
In the event of a tie bid, precedence is given to the earliest bid. Hypothetical Example: Bidder #1 places a $10,000 max bid on a vehicle that currently has a high bid of $5000. The high bid is now at $5,025. Bidder #2 places a max bid at $7000. Bidder #2 is immediately outbid by the $10,000 max bid and the high bid immediately adjusts to $7,025. Bidder #2 decides to place a $10,000 max bid this time. He does not surpass the initial $10,000 max bid by Bidder #1 therefore he is not the high bidder. In the case of a tie bid, precedence is given to the earliest bid.
A buyer's premium of five percent (5%) of the high bid will be added to the high bid to determine the final sales price for the auction lot. Example: $100 bid + $5.00 BP = $105 invoice amount
Each lot will sell to the highest bidder without reserve, unless noted otherwise.
All sellers are contractually prohibited from bidding on lots they have consigned to the auction.
All sales are final. There are no returns, refunds, credit card charge-backs or adjustments.
