AUCTIONZIP.COM IS THE INTERNET AUCTION SITE
AS OF SEPTEMBER 1, 2015, WE ARE NOW USING AUCTIONZIP AS OUR"ON-LINE" INTERNET AUCTION COMPANY. YOU WILL FIND AUCTIONZIP IS VERY USER FRIENDLY AND MUCH EASIER TO USE TO BID AND BUY ON-LINE DURING THE LIVE AUCTION. CLICK ON THE BLUE "CLICK HERE" WORDS ABOVE TO CONNECT DIRECTLY TO AUCTIONZIP TO REGISTER AS A BUYER AND TO GET FURTHER INTERNET AUCTION INFORMATION.
Our on-line bidding now goes through an on-line company called AUCTIONZIP -- if you previously visited our on-line bidding platform when we used the Bidspotter company, you will need to enter our site through AUCTIONZIP in order to see our on-line bidding and to partake in our auction. You can refresh your history or delete your cookies which take you to the incorrect on-line auction company which we used prior to September 1, 2015.
READ THIS INFORMATION BEFORE YOU SIGN UP FOR ON-LINE OR ABSENTEE BIDDING:
You should register as a AUCTIONZIP bidder prior to the actual auction date. Don't wait until auction day to get signed up !!!
We are partnering with AUCTIONZIP to allow our customers who are unable to attend the auction in person the opportunity to bid via a live simulcast of our auction as it is happening here.
The best way to buy at our auction is to attend the auction in person. There are many advantages for you to actually attend the auctions in person, rather than buying via on-line or absentee bidding. Some of the benefits of attending the auction in person are :
Due to additional fees charged by the internet auction host company, on-line 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 here for auction in person prior to bidding. Also, the items that arrive at the auction facility the day of the auction will not be available for internet bidding. ABOUT 30 % OF THE ITEMS SOLD AT THE AUCTION ARRIVE AUCTION MORNING, AND DUE TO TIME CONSTRAINTS, THESE ITEMS ARE NOT AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE THROUGH ON-LINE OR ABSENTEE BIDDING. We sell hundreds of parts, clothing and accessories at the auction site on auction morning. None of these parts/accessories/clothing are avaliable for on-line or 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 these reasons.
We have no intention of replacing our live auction with an internet only auction. After all, how can you have a "real" auction without an auctioneer? By allowing on-line and/or absentee bidding, we are simply providing an opportunity for our customers who are unable to attend in person to participate in the auction.
The auction catalog listings and pictures of the auction inventory are added to the AUCTIONZIP website starting the week of the auction. About 30% of the items selling in the auction arrive too late to be listed on the AUCTIONZIP site and are not available for on-line bidding.
The internet simulcast does not change the way the auction is conducted. We do not allow "pre-bidding" via the internet, so internet bidders are bidding live just the same as if they were actually attending the auction in person.
Our internet bidding auction terms are listed on our AUCTIONZIP internet auction site and should be fully reviewed before bidding.
WE STRONGLY ENCOURAGE BUYERS TO INSPECT ALL ITEMS
PRIOR TO 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. We do not inspect items as to the condition of the items. Please inspect yourself before bidding or buying.
Special Note: Out of country buyers need to make special arrangements on the AUCTIONZIP website to get registered to buy at least three days before the auction to be able to participate in the simulcast auction on-line.
