An auction is a unique marketing tool that brings potential buyers together in order to create the best possible market for a seller.
Our online auctions provide an authentic experience that can occur live in real time, or a timed environment. Just like you have probably seen on television, people virtually arrive at the auction's location, browse the lots or property, and place their bids.
Creating your account will provide bidding access to all auctions on our platform.
Terms and Conditions are located both on the main auction event page and on individual lot pages.
An auction only ends when bidding has stopped. The auction company hosting the auction will specify the amount of time that must pass before an auction is considered closed. Some auction companies allow time extensions on individual lots if bidding is still active (called "staggered closings") and some auction companies elect to have all lots within their entire auction go in to extended bidding if any of the auction's lots are still being bid on.
Auctions close in a few different ways. Some auctions close at a set time, pre-determined by the auctioneer. Some auctions have a staggered closing. This will be specified in the auction terms with a start time. The first lot or group of lots will close at the specified time and subsequent lots will close after a certain amount of time has passed, either one by one or in defined groups of lots.
Either of these two types of auctions can also have dynamic or extended bidding. The auction will close only when bidding has stopped for a specified amount of time. If dynamic/extended bidding is active it will be mentioned in the terms and conditions along with the amount of time between bids necessary for an auction to close.
Check My Items, under the Items Won tab on the auction web page. You will also receive an invoice via email when you are the winning bidder.
Payment terms are specified in the auction's terms and conditions.
The "Ask the Auctioneer" form on the auction event page and on each lot page allows you to send a message to the hosting auctioneer. Questions that other users have asked can also be viewed on these pages. The auction company's contact details (address, phone number) are also available on the main auction page.
Use the search bar at the top of the page to find a specific item in all auctions. You can narrow your search by category or view all lots that match your keyword in all categories. You can also save a search to revisit it later in your account under "Saved Search."
