WHERE ARE THE ITEMS LOCATED?
Prior to bidding it is important that you have read all the terms and conditions for that item. During our weekly Wednesday Consignment & Recovery auctions, you have 7 days to make payment and pick up your items from the auction date. If the auction is a business liquidation or a specialty auction, in most cases you may only have 1 day to make payment and remove your items. These details can be found in each item that is up for auction by scrolling down the page.
WHAT DOES “YOUR MAXIMUM BID” MEAN?
You can either place the next increment bid amount on an item or you can enter your maximum bid which is the top amount you are willing to pay for an item. It does ensure that you will continue to be the highest bidder at the lowest qualifying bid until another bidder either outbids your maximum bid or establishes a high maximum bid than you have.
HOW DO I KNOW IF MY BID WENT THROUGH OR IF I WON AN ITEM?
When you confirm your bid on at item you will be notified at the top of the page if your bid was successful or if you have been outbid. If your bid was unsuccessful, you can submit a higher bid again. If you choose to receive email notifications when registering, you will be emailed each time you bid or have won an item. You may edit these notifications by clicking on the “my account” button and clicking on “account details” then clicking on “change details”.
