The auction offers low opening prices with no reserves. This is an automatic timed sale with lots closing every 60 seconds.
Please bid ahead of time due to the short-timed bidding nature of the auction. Also, please sign in ahead of time to make certain you can leave bids – do not wit until the last minute. Once the auction begins, it is automatic and we have no control over bidding, pausing the auction, or redoing lots. Unsold lots will be available after the sale.
We recommend that you should leave bids in the system in advance of the auction, which will then activate once the lot opens.
If you choose to bid on a lot live during the auction, the lot will stay open for an additional two minutes after your bid until the lot times out or until someone else bids, then it will stay open for two minutes more, and so on. This will prevent someone from Sniping the lot and you from being disappointed for not being able to place a responding bid. All of the other lots will still be closing on a 60-second basis even while you are bidding on a previous lot.
Please register as early as possible in case you need help or have questions. Absentee bids may be emailed to [email protected] or faxed to (201) 839-3336.
