Buying at auctions can be a very fun and exciting experience. You can often save on items that you were looking for, or find items at a good price that you were not actively seeking. By following some of our tips below you can make the most of your auction time and money.
- Bring a little extra money. You never know when you’ll find an item that you just can’t help but bid on. In many auctions televisions and jewelry sell for very low prices.
- Get a Bid Card on Thursday
- Be prepared to pay in full by 2:00pm
- If you can spare the time go to the preview and pre-registration. By previewing the items you will have a good idea of what you want to bid on and how high you will bid for each item.
- When bidding on an item make sure to raise your buyers number high in the air. Many people like to bid with subtle body language (such as nods or small waves of the hand) and this can sometimes cause confusion. You don’t want to be passed over for a good deal because your bid was not noticed by one of the auctioneers.
- Please see our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document if you have a question that someone may have asked before.
- Credit Card Users: Please call your credit card company the day before the sale and notify them that you are intending to attend a vehicle auction sale and that you will be charging some large amounts to your card. Many credit card purchases are rejected by the credit card company on the sale days because the amounts are large or the ‘pattern of activity’ is irregular
