Getting StartedAuction Basics
In order to bid at the auction, you need a bidder’s number. That unique number is assigned to you, so anything you bid on and win at the auction will be identified by your number. To get your bidder’s number we need some information about who you are, so we’ll scan your driver’s license (name, address & driver’s license # is all we get), and take your phone number and email address (email is optional, but see Absentee or Telephone Bid for why it’s a good idea). Then we give you a bidder’s number card. It’s that simple and painless. And we NEVER share your info with anyone.
The floor announcer picks up an item (say, a ladder-back chair). He/she will describe it briefly, and the auctioneer will “open the bidding” by asking for an amount of money (say $10). If you want the chair and would pay $10 for it, hold up your bid card. The auctioneer will point or nod toward you to indicate he/she has your bid, and will immediately ask for more money (say $12.50) and look around the room for another bidder. If the auctioneer gets a bid for $12.50, he/she will come back to you asking for a new higher amount (say $15). If you still want the chair for $15, nod or wave your bid card. The bidding will go back and forth with bidders jumping in or dropping out as the asked-for amount gets higher. If you’re the last bidder, you win the lot for whatever your last bid was (also called the “hammer price”). The auctioneer will announce “SOLD!” and will call out your bidder’s number.
Congratulations! If your item is small, the auction staff will probably bring it right out and hand it to you. Larger pieces of furniture will be moved to the side away from where they’re selling. One rule applies to both scenarios: you are responsible for your items from the moment the auctioneer says “SOLD” and calls out your bidder number.
If there are still items you want to bid on, keep bidding. If you’re all finished for the night, make your way back to the office, and we’ll have your bill ready for you.
We accept Cash, personal check, VISA, and MasterCard.
