This auction is not a timed auction. It will operate just like a normal live auction, only it is all conducted online where you can listen to the live auctioneer and bid in real-time. We will open Lot 1 at 10 AM that morning and accept bids from multiple online platforms, internet pre-bids, and absentee bids. We will give fair warning when bidding slows on that item, and then the auctioneer will declare that lot SOLD! and open the next lot for bidding. You can pre-bid in advance or wait until the lot opens and bid in real-time. It is safer to enter your max bad in advance so that you don’t miss your lot when you forget the auction or don’t bid quick enough and we close the lot. The live auctioneer will control the pace of the auction.
Pre-bids from multiple online platforms will be presented to the auctioneer by the software system as real-time bidding occurs during the virtual live simulcast auction. Pre-bids are NOT timestamped. If you leave a max pre-bid, there is a chance another bidder from a different platform may leave the same high bid amount. The auctioneer will decide in real-time which bid will be accepted during the selling of each individual lot. If you are confused by this, please contact the auction company for a clearer explanation. This is NOT a timed auction.
There is no countdown timer.
