The online auction closes 3 items per minute (may differ on each auction). This feature will close the bidding on intervals. This feature works great with the auto-extend feature to closely emulate a ‘live’ auction.
The closing time of an item is automatically extended an additional 2 minutes whenever a bid is placed within the last 2 minutes of the item’s closing time. Thus, if an item is set to close at 6.:00 pm, and a bidder places a bid on the item at 6:02 pm, the item’s closing time will be extended to 6:04 pm. If another bid is placed at 6:05 pm, the item’s closing time will be extended to 6:07 pm, and so on.
If you have been out-bid you will be notified by email or phone notification (app users) ONLY UNTIL the last 2 minutes of the item scheduled closing time. To quickly review your bids and see if you have won, you can utilize the ‘Your Items’ feature. Items that you have been outbid on will be clearly marked.
Winning Bidder Notification:
You will be contacted by email or phone notification (app users). If you feel you have won an item and have not received an email you must notify us by email no later than 9:00 am the next day. If you do not receive an emailed invoice then you did not win any items at the online auction.
In the event an item is not available for pickup, the buyer must notify our on-site staff and file a claim by replying to your original emailed invoice noting what was not available within 24 hours of the pickup date. After 24 hours, the Auctioneer and buyer agrees that no adjustment or refund will be made.
