Technical Bidding Details: All lots end with a "Soft Close." A "Soft Close" means if any bid is placed within the last three minutes of the close of the auction, the bid will automatically extend the closing time an additional three minutes. Example: If a bid is placed at two minutes until close, it will extend the closing time to five minutes. This feature protects bidders from being outbid without the opportunity to be notified and place another bid before the close of the auction.
Placing a "Maximum Bid." Please be aware that when placing your "Maximum Bid", the website will bid on your behalf up to your set maximum bid by the preset bid increment of $25. Example: The current bid is $1000 and the bidder enters a maximum bid of $5000. The system will bid at the preset increment of $25 until the bidders "Maximum bid" is exceeded. At that point the bidder will be notified that he/she has been outbid (if that option is selected when registering). High bidder will only pay $25 more than the competing bidder. Please watch the auction closing time stop clock to determine exactly when the lot will close.
Tie Bid Precedence: In the event of a tie bid, precedence is given to the earliest bid. Hypothetical Example: Bidder #1 places a $10,000 max bid on a vehicle that currently has a high bid of $5000. The high bid is now at $5,025. Bidder #2 places a max bid at $7000. Bidder #2 is immediately outbid by the $10,000 max bid and the high bid immediately adjusts to $7,025. Bidder #2 decides to place a $10,000 max bid this time. He does not surpass the initial $10,000 max bid by Bidder #1 therefore he is not the high bidder. In the case of a tie bid, precedence is given to the earliest bid.
Note: If you are the higher bidder during a tie and you then decide to increase the bid the system will bid on your behalf to break the tie. Example: You bidder #1 have a high bid at $225 on a lot and the lot bid is at $220. Bidder #2 decides to bid $225 the bid will go to $225 and you Bidder #1 will still be the highest bidder, However if you decide I want my higest bid at $230 then system will always break the tie and bid to $230 to break all ties.
