HOW TIMED ONLINE BIDDING WORKS
Auctions will be posted a minimum of a week prior to the auction close date. Bidding will be open from that time until the lots close on the designated date when lots will begin to close at a rate of 5 lots per minute. If you make a last-second bid, the bidding time will automatically extend for one minute, so sorry–there’s no sniping!
Once the lot closes, whoever bid the highest wins the lot. When the auction is complete, we will charge the credit card on your account, and you can stop by on Saturday from 9AM – 3PM to pick up, or schedule a pickup time Monday-Friday.
To bid, you’ll need to create an online bidding account, or simply sign in to the auction if you already have one.
Online bidding is convenient! You can bid once on any item or bid as many times as you like. You can even set your maximum bid and move on. Payment is all online, and you’ll choose your own pickup time that works for you.
OUR BIDDING PLATFORM & APP HAS A NEW LOOK!!
As of July 27, 2020, our bidding platform got a little makeover & updating. Everything still works the same, but looks a little different. See below for some images and hacks on how to navigate the new design.

ONLINE BIDDING TIPS
Bid Once: To bid one time on any item, click the orange “Bid” button to bid that amount, then click “Confirm” to set your bid. If someone bids higher, you’ll have to bid again if you want to.
Set a Maximum Bid: To put in a maximum bid and let the auction do all the work for you, click the little arrow next to the bid button, select “Set Max”, and enter your maximum bid amount for that item. The auction will automatically advance your bid if anyone else bids on that item. If the bidding gets to your maximum bid, you’ll be notified so that you can increase your bid if you want, or not. It’s up to you.
Track “Your” Lots: Want to keep track of all the lots you’re interested in? Click the Star button in the upper left corner of each lot listing. You’ll see a tab marked “My Items”. Click that to see a list of just the items you’ve starred. This is a great way to keep track of the items you’re bidding on to see at a glance if you’ve been outbid or not.
To go back to the full catalog, click the “All Items” tab
