Signing up is a simple process. You will click on an item that you would like to bid on, the HiBid software will ask some information for verification: Name - Address - telephone - e-mail address, and a credit card that will verify the address. You will be charged a one time fee for verification. Pick a screen name that you will recognize and a pass code that you will remember or write it down.
We try and have the Saturday sale up by Wednesday before the sale to give you plenty of time to call or preview an item - If you would like to come to preview we are open Friday from 10:00 am until 5:30pm and Saturday from 9:00 am - 10:00 am sale day.
Saturday Online Bidding will continue until 8:30 am the morning of the sale and Monday sale bidding will continue until 5:30 pm Monday.
Leaving a bid does not automatically make you the winner of an item. Bidding starts at $5.00 (unless reserve is noted online or in house) for Monday sales, $5.00 (unless reserve is noted online or in house) on Saturday Sales continues until sold. We can not predict where the high bid will land. Leave bids accordingly.
If you have to ship items from absentee bidding we will charge a 15% buyers premium and $2.50 handling fee plus shipping.
If you have a winning bid, we will e-mail the next day and you can come in and pay for your item. Sunday after the sale you may pick from 10:00 am until 3:30 pm and Wednesday through Friday the following week from 10:00 am until 5:30 pm.
