Items are being cataloged at this time. Once completed the items will be uploaded to the Online bid server on Proxibid. There will be several thousand photographs available in the Catalog. Once Uploaded you will be able to place Prebids here on Proxibid up until the time each item is scheduled to close.
With this system you can bid LIVE on the computer against LIVE FLOOR Bidders in the Auction House once each item comes up onto the Auction Block. Things will move very quickly once the bidding begins. We generally sell between 60 & 80 lots an hour at Live Auction. We highly recommend that you place a Prebid on the item(s) that you are interested in and then be there ready to rebid if your maximum bid is exceeded should you so choose to increase your bid. If you wait until the last second to click the bid button it may be to late. These is a very small lag time from the time that you press the bid button, that information reflects on our clerks screen and he/she relays that to bid to the Auctioneer. If your bid comes in after the Auctioneer has said sold your bid will not be accepted or honored. With 400 Live auction items we need to sell at a fairly rapid pace. If you place a Prebid Proxibids computer immediately notifies us if there is a higher bid online. As the Auctioneer we have no idea of your maximum bid amount that is placed on any given lot. Proxibid’s computer only lets us know that a higher bid has been placed online when we update the asking bid. You can feel secure in knowing that your bid can’t be run up to or stated out at your maximum bid. The Auctioneer will generally give the lot 3 calls. Going once, twice, sold. DO NOT wait until the Auctioneer says Going Twice to decide if you want to bid or not. If you do it will likely be to late and the lot will have sold before your bid can be acted upon!
NOTE: The Auction items will start being sold at 5:02 PM on Friday the 15th of January. There will be several hundred lots in the Auction. It will take Approx. 4-5 hours (@ 80 Lots/Hr or @ 60 Lots/Hr) for all items to come to a close.
Friday’s Auction day will feature LIVE ONSITE Bidding with LIVE WEBCAST Bidding via Proxibid.
There is an 18% Buyer Premium with the use of this System. Proxibid gets a 5% cut of everything that sells on their site!.
A Final Catalog will be available once completed on our HiBid Server by clicking the link below.
This will be a LIVE AUCTION with ONLINE ABSENTEE BIDDING (Here on HiBid) on Friday 1/15/21. Bids left here on HiBid are due by 2 PM on Friday the 15th of January. Those bids will be uploaded into our Auction Software and executed by the Auctioneer during the Live Auction. It should be understood that the high bid at 2 PM may or may not be the winning bid. The Auctioneer will start with either the Highest bid on HiBid or Highest Prebid on Proxibid when the item comes up on the Auction Block. Then the bidding is open to the floor and Live bids via Proxibid.
You will be notified by email if you place a Winning Bid on HiBid. The computer will show “May have Won” if you were the Highest bid at 2 PM on Friday the 15th. We won’t know if your bid won until the Live Bidding opens and that particular item is sold at Live Auction. You will be notified by email if you are a winning Bidder on lots that you placed bids on. All desired Live Online bidding should be conducted through www.proxibid.com. There is a 18% Buyer Premium if you place bids and win on HiBid.
AUCTIONEERS NOTE: Please do not assume that if you log back into HiBid and the computer shows “May have Won” that you actually won the item. We generally upload the winning prices back to HiBid within a few days once items are paid for. If you have a question about whether you won an item you can give us a call or look online on Proxibid under our Archived Auctions and it will show a sold for price. You will also get an Email from us letting you know that you won an item. That will normally arrive within about a day after the close of the Auction.
It may be possible that a Tie bid can occur with the use of several bidding platforms. Its easy to correct with either a Live Floor Bidder or a Live Online Bidder as we can announce that the floor is in or the internet is in and ask for an additional bid to break the tie. For Example lets say that you place a Max bid on HiBid for $400 for a Rifle. If the current bidding is Say $250. The Auctioneer will start the bidding at $250. If a person bids $275 on the floor we would put you in for $300. Then if we ask for $325 and a Live Internet bidder bids we would accept that bid and put you in at $350. If no one else bids you would win for your $350 Bid. If we continue that example say we get an internet bid at $375 and then the Auctioneer asks for $400. If a person in the Live Crowd goes to $400 then we have a tied bid between a Live Bid and an Absentee Bid. The Auctioneer will generally award the bid to the Live onsite bidder. The situation can also arise in that same example if you had the bid at $375 and either the internet or a live bidder goes $400. Then due to the bid increment the other bidder beat you to the $400 bid increment. In this example the bid would be awarded to the Internet or Live bidder even though you had a Tying $400 bid. We want to be upfront and honest will all of our bidders and you to make you aware that things like this can happen. Don’t consider yourself the winner until you receive an Invoice from the Auction Co. stating that you won that item. You can avoid this situation by either attending the Live Auction or bidding live via Proxibid.
