Q. How do I bid for an item?

A. First you need to register and obtain a bidder’s number. Registration is held during the inspection period, generally during the hour before the auction starts. Auctions start time is 9:30 a.m. unless otherwise specified. As the auctioneer calls bids, simply raise your hand or bid card when you are comfortable with the amount being requested by the auctioneer. If you are the winning bidder, hold your card up high so the auction clerk can record your bidder’s number.

Q. What methods of payment can be used at personal property auctions?

A. Payment in full must be made on the day of the auction. Payment may be in cash, personal check (with proper I.D.), company check (with a/bank letter of guarantee), MasterCard, Visa or Discover card. All items are sold "as is, where is." Written absentee bids accepted if accompanied by a deposit.

Q. Is there a fee or a Buyer’s Premium for attending an auction?

Q. Is there a warranty or guarantee on items purchased at auction?

A. All items are sold “as is, where is,” with no warranty expressed or implied. All descriptions of items for sale provided orally or in writing at the time of the auction are believed to be correct. The Auctioneer is not responsible for the correct description, authenticity, genuineness, or defects in any lot and makes no warranty in this regard. No allowance, refund or set aside will be made on account of any incorrectness, error in cataloging, imperfection, defect or damage. Any descriptions or representations are for identification purposes only and are not to be construed as a warranty of any type. It is the responsibility of the buyer to thoroughly inspect the merchandise and satisfy himself or herself as to its condition and value and to bid based solely upon that assessment.

Q. Can I pay for my purchases when I am finished bidding or do I have to wait until the auction is over?
