How to Register

Bidders register with the cashier upon entering the auction. Each bidder receives a Bidder Card to be used to make bids. A current picture ID is required to receive a Bid Card.

Bidding Process

To make a bid, the bidder simply raises  bidder card and the auctioneer or ringman will acknowledge the bid. The ringman’s job is to assist the auctioneer in spotting bids, holding up merchandise so the bidders can see the item for bid and verify Bid Card number.

 
Phone and Internet Bids

Phone and internet bids are utilized for absent bidders. An auction staff member will handle the bidding process on behalf of the absent bidder.

 
Winning Bid

Upon successful winning of the bid, the auctioneer will call out your bidder number and tell the clerk what you  paid for the item and your bidder’s number. That information is sent electronically to the cashier.

As soon as the auctioneer announces “Sold!” the bid information is sent wirelessly to the cashier. Bidders can pay the cashier any time during the course of the day, as often as they like. The cashier will provide a detailed invoice describing each item purchased and the winning bid amount. The bidder may pay by cash, MasterCard, Visa, American Express, Discover, or check with Bank Letter of Guarantee.  Other forms of payment must be approved by auction company before auction day.
