Why do people go to auctions?

"It's fun"! The excitement of bidding, the thrill of the hunt, the rhythmic chant of the auctioneers
all these elements generate a level of enthusiasm that only the auction method can generate.

What does "Preview" mean?

Preview means to check out the merchandise before the auction.  Look something over so you know what you are buying.

Items purchased at auction are "as is" so, preview can be a really important part of auction going.

Can I really get a good deal at an auction?

At an auction there are no "retail mark-up" prices to deal with.
You see something you want and you decide what you would be willing to pay for that item!
The truth is that there are great and sometimes unbelievable deals to find at an auction.

How do I register at an auction?

What if I change my mind after the auctioneer says sold and I no longer want that item? Or can I return an item?

Your bid is an agreement to purchase.  You have committed to purchase the item ; it is absolute.
By bidding you have agreed to the Terms and Conditions of the auction. All sales are final.
Please use the preview time before the start of an auction to determine your interest in an item.

What are the benefits of an auction?

The auction demonstrates to serious buyers that owners are ready, willing, able and committed to sell the items now at a market price. An auction also creates a deadline where one currently does not exist, yielding a higher selling price and thus minimizing costs and maximizing returns in a shortened time frame.
