SPRING 2016 AUCTION CATEGORIES
Here are the categories for our Spring 2016 Auction:
AUCTION RULES & CLOSING PROCEDURE
Are you familiar with our Auction Closing procedures? If you are the only bidder on an item at 9pm, you are instantly declared the winner. However, if you are not the only bidder, the auction will continue past 9pm and only close once no bids have been received for 5 minutes on the entire auction and all the lots. This gives you the opportunity to have a final shot at an item you have bid on. Some of our auctions can go on late into the night or even early the next morning!
In the event you cannot be in front of your computer at the close of our auction, we offer Absentee bids. This option offers you a way to submit your maximum bid as a ceiling for what you are willing to pay for an item. Classic Auctions will bid on your behalf to keep you as the highest bidder up to your maximum bid. If your bid wins without reaching your maximum bid, you will only pay that price. This way, you can participate in the auctions of your choice without having to watch the auctions until closing or even later.
Please feel free to contact us to ask any auction related questions. Our friendly staff is available to help you at (450) 638-7058, Monday through Friday, between the hours of 9:00 AM and 5:00 PM. On the final week of the auction, the office hours will be increased for your convenience.
Good luck with your bids!
Sound the alarm, it's almost done! Remember, our event closes tonight at 9pm EST (new time!), so get your bids in now!
