Should I preview before the sale?
ABSOLUTELY! All items are sold as is and where is, so it is your responsibility to inspect all items before you buy. Once you win the highest bid, you are obligated to pay for and remove your item(s). All sales are final.
What if I can’t be at the auction, but I want to buy something?
All of the items in the auction are available for viewing in our Online Auction Catalog. If you see something you like, but cannot attend the auction, you may bid online until one hour before the start of the live auction.
How does online bidding work?
You can enjoy the excitement of bidding from anywhere through Hibid.com. You can place an online absentee bid before the live auction begins, allowing you to get in the auction ahead of the live bidding. Online Absentee Bidding ends one hour before the live auction starts. All Absentee Bidding requires a $10 minimum bid.
What is an Online Absentee Bid?
An Online Absentee Bid is a way to tell the Auctioneer that although you will not be at the auction, you are interested in an item up to a certain dollar amount. That bid amount will go up against the bids from patrons at the live auction.
How do I leave an Absentee Online Bid?
Enter the maximum amount you are willing to pay for that lot and submit it. If you are not logged in, you will be taken to a page where you may either log in or create a new account. If you are already logged in, you will be taken directly to the next step. Your bid amount will go up against the bids from patrons at the live auction. We will represent your bid as if you were attending the auction yourself.
How do I pay for the items I win?
Everything must be paid for in full the day of the sale regardless of pick up. If you have won the items at the live auction, please pay before you leave, even if you are unable to take the item with you that night. Payment with cash, check, or bank card is accepted at the Auction Cashier’s Window. If your Online Absentee Bid wins an auction item, you will be notified by phone during or immediately following the auction, and payment is expected at that time. We give a 3% discount for customers paying cash or check the day of the auction only. Unfortunately, we are unable to accept online payments for winning bids at this time. If absolutely necessary, you may pay by noon the next day at the latest with cash or check.
How much is shipping?
Shipping costs are the responsibility of the buyer. A handling fee of $10.00 will be added to the actual shipping costs. Packaging fees may apply. Merchandise can be picked up at the store, 3950 Jacobs Avenue in Eureka during normal business hours.
The amount you bid should be the very highest price you will pay.
We will represent your bid as if you’re attending the auction yourself. For example, if you left a $100 bid on an item and the last bid from the audience was $50, the next bid would be $60 at your bid.
