This Auction utilizes a staggered end time of (30) Lots ending every 5 minutes. For example Lots 1-30 end at 7:00 PM, Lots 30-60 end at 7:05 PM, etc... Lots will remain open as long as there is bidding activity. (See Extending Bidding paragraph below)


Our auctions use the Auto-Extend feature. The basic rule is, there must be a minimum of 5 minutes for a bidder to react to a bid. If there is a bid placed in the final 5 minutes for an item, the ending time for that item is automatically extended to allow the 5 minute reaction time. If another bid is received during that 'extended time', the ending time is extended again--and again, if necessary, for 5 additional minutes for each extension. This continues and repeats until there are no more bids submitted. This 'Auto-Extend' feature allows the bidding process to be more fair for every bidder and gives all bidders a chance to respond to any last-minute snipe bid(s). Items are Auto-extended ONLY if a bid is placed within 5 minutes of the scheduled closing time.

This online feature uses a staggered ending time. If the auction is scheduled to end at 7:00 PM the first item is scheduled to end at 7:00 PM and each item after the first will end in set staggered intervals.


Internet bidders who desire to make certain their bids are acknowledged

should use the internet bidding feature and leave their maximum bid. When you bid

your max, the current bid price does not automatically go to your max bid. Someone

else has to bid to increase the current price and the computer will automatically bid up to your max in the increments specified.


Please remember to REFRESH your screen to find out if you have been outbid.

To refresh your screen, you need to click on `RESET CATALOG` or REFRESH ALL for the

whole page to refresh or use the refresh button on your browser. This is most
