Staggered Closing Lots do not all close at once! Beginning with Lot 1, lots will close in increments of 3-6 per minute, depending on the size of the auction, in numerical order, until all lots have been closed. The Closing Time for Lot 1 will be posted at the top of each auction's page.
Extended Dynamic Closing If a bid is placed on a Lot within 5 minutes of its’ scheduled closing time, the timer for that lot is automatically extended by 5 minutes to allow all interested bidders the opportunity to continue placing bids for that item. This extended bidding time does not increase the bidding time for any other lots in the auction.
Refresh & Minutes Remaining 24 Hours before the Lots begin closing, a Countdown Timer will appear below each Lot displaying the exact number of bidding hours and minutes remaining for that Lot. Once the first Lot closes, this Countdown Timer must manually be updated by clicking the 'Refresh' Feature. This is the only way to receive the most current bid and timing information for the remaining Lots.

Public Inspection All assets will be open to a complete examination to all interested parties during the scheduled Public Inspection Time. The date, time & location of thePublic Inspection will be posted for each auction. If you are uncertain of the condition or use of an item and are not able to attend the Public Inspection,please bid accordingly, as all Sales are Final.
Your Maximum Bid This Bidding Feature places automatic bids on your behalf, up to the maximum amount that you are willing to pay for the item. Your bid is only increased when another Bidder places a bid higher than your current bid. If a Bidder places a bid higher than your Max Bid, you will lose your position as the Winning Bidder, the system stops placing bids on your behalf, and you are required to enter a new bid if you wish to continue competing for the item. Note: This Bidding Feature is an efficient tool for Bidders who need to manage multiple bids.
Outbid Notifications END once Lots begin Closing If you are outbid on an item, you will receive an immediate Outbid Notification email. These notifications keep you updated on the status of the Bids you have placed. However, once the 1st Lot closes, the system will no longer send these notices. You will be responsible to manually monitor the status of your bids at this time. You may review the status of your bids by clicking ‘Review Bids.’
Bidding Errors Please review all bids carefully before submitting them. In the event a gross bidding error is made, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org immediately. We will review the circumstances to see if the bid may be reversed without affecting other participant’s bids on that item.
