ONLINE AUCTION TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Specific and or Additional Terms For Certain Auctions and lots May Apply!
VERY IMPORTANT! READ CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU ATTEMPT TO BID. ONCE YOU BID, YOU WILL BE BOUND LEGALLY BY THE FOLLOWING TERMS AND RULES THAT ARE STATED HERE.
•Preview Date: Wednesday, December 26th, 2018 from 11:00-4:00.
Physical previews are an excellent option to inspect items before bidding.
•Auction End Date and Time: Thursday, December 27th, 2018 @ 2:00 P.M. With the Soft Close Method
Be sure to utilize our MAX BID Feature so you do not miss out on the items you want.
•Auction Pick-Up Removal: Friday, December 28th, Noon-5:00 P.M. 2018
Due to the soft shoulders along the long narrow access drive to the pick-up location we will be limiting pick-up to only 5 vehicles at a time on Friday from Noon to 5:00
It is our hope this will alleviate the congestion and allow our team to process your pick up and removal in a fast efficient manner without anyone getting stuck.
When Pick-Up times were originally scheduled we had no idea it would be near 60 degrees and soft the end of December but I guess that’s Mid-Western Ohio Weather.
As always we Thank you and appreciate your patience during pick-ups in tight locations.
Good Luck and Happy Bidding.

ALL OF OUR ONLINE AUCTIONS FEATURE BOTH A MAX BID OPTION AS WELL AS A SOFT CLOSE.
“A MAX BID” may be placed on any item and the computer will bid on your behalf, thus eliminating the need to “babysit” your bids. This option is highly recommended so you do not miss out on the item you are bidding on for any reason.
“THE SOFT CLOSE” feature which means any bid received in the final minutes of the auction will auto extend bidding on that particular item or lot by 5 minutes thus allowing a backup bidder the opportunity to raise their bid. In the event you do not use the MAX BID feature and you are out bid you will be notified via e-mail or text that you have been outbid and will have the opportunity to raise your bid.
