READ THIS INFORMATION BEFORE YOU
SIGN UP FOR ABSENTEE BIDDING:
We are providing this internet/website absentee bidding platform to allow our customers who are unable to attend the auction in person the opportunity to bid on many of the auction items.
The best way to buy at our auction is to attend the auction in person. There are many advantages if you actually attend the auctions in person, rather than buying via absentee bidding, such as:
Due to additional costs incurred by the absentee bidding system, absentee bidders pay a 15% buyers premium instead of the 10% buyers premium for on-site bidders.
Attending the auction in person not only allows you to save 5% on the buyers premium, but gives you the ability to inspect the items in for auction in person prior to bidding. Also, the items that arrive at the auction facility the day of the auction may not be available for absentee bidding.
ABOUT 20% OF THE ITEMS SOLD AT THE AUCTION ARRIVE AUCTION MORNING,
AND DUE TO TIME CONSTRAINTS, SOME OF THESE ITEMS ARE NOT PICTURED,
AND MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE THROUGH ABSENTEE BIDDING.
We sell hundreds of parts, clothing, and accessories at the auction site on auction morning. None of these parts/accessories/clothing are available for absentee bidding. The only way to bid on the items that arrive the day of the auction is to attend in person.
We STRONGLY encourage potential bidders to attend the auction in person because of the above reasons.
We have no intention of replacing our live auction with absentee bidding.
By allowing absentee bidding, we are simply providing
an opportunity for our customers who are unable to attend
in person to participate in the auction.
PRIOR TO AUCTION DAY, WE STRONGLY ENCOURAGE BUYERS
TO INSPECT ALL ITEMS PRIOR TO ABSENTEE BIDDING DUE TO:
All items are sold in as-is, where-is condition with all faults.
Items may not run, parts may be missing, or the item may have damage
. All sales are final.
There are no refunds for any reason.
