Online Auctions Details
All auctions utilize an auto-extend, horse race style closing. With this feature, the bidding will remain open on all items in the auction if there has been at least one bid received on any one item in the auction within the last 3 minutes (or the set extended bidding increment at the time). Once 3 minutes has lapsed without any bidding activity, the bidding on all items will be closed. All lots will close simultaneously. Please see the examples below – this is a sample and may or may not match the actual ending times. Example 1: Auction closes at 2 PM. There is no bidding from 1:57 PM to 2 PM. All lots are declared closed and the sale ends at 2 PM. Example 2: Auction closes at 2 PM. There is a bid placed at 1:59 PM. Auction is extended by 3 minutes. No more bidding occurs. All lots are declared closed and the sale ends at 2:02 PM. Example 3: Auction closes at 2 PM. There is a bid placed at 1:59 PM. Auction is extended by 3 minutes until 2:02 PM. Another bid is placed at 2:01 PM. No more bids are placed. All lots are declared closed and the sale ends at 2:04 PM. The horse race auto-extend time goes into effect once the auction reaches its original ending time. The auction will remain open for bidding on all items within the auction if there has been at least one bid received on any one item in the auction within the last 3 minutes, even if the original ending time has been reached. Extended bidding means that the auction is not declared closed until there have been 3 minutes of inactivity on the entire auction. Each time a bid it placed, it resets the clock timer on the auction back to the high water mark auto-extend time that is set. All auctions will feature the accelerated horse race style closing. Please see the example below – this is a sample and may or may not match the actual ending times. 2 PM ET – extended bidding begins FIRST HOUR – 3 minutes extended bidding SECOND HOUR – 2 minutes extended bidding THIRD HOUR – 1 minute extended bidding Auctioneer has the right to change the extended bidding increment to 1 minute – judgment call based on the number of bids per minute. PLEASE PLACE YOUR BIDS EARLY AND PLAN ACCORDINGLY! EXTENDED BIDDING TIME CHANGE IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE AT THE AUCTIONEER’S DISCRETION.
