Will someone be at the auction location to watch or protect my purchases?

Once the auctioneer has sold an item it becomes the sole responsibility of the buyer.  Transfer of ownership occurs when the auctioneers says "sold", even though you have not paid for the item.  After the auction is completed the auction supervising crew takes over. They will check invoices to hopefully remedy any problem during checkout. Please take your small items with you on auction day and remove any large items as soon as possible. 

Is sales tax charged at your auctions?

Yes, all applicable sale tax will be charged unless you are an equipment dealer and buying this equipment for resale.  If you are an equipment dealer, you must bring a retail tax certificate proving you are the business of selling this type of equipment.

Is there any auction preview time?

Auction preview times may vary from auction to auction.  Generally, it is the day of the auction for 2 hours prior to the advertised auction start time. 

Do you accept absentee bids at your auctions if I cannot attend?

Yes we do, but please see absentee bid terms and fill in all of the information requested.

Do you charge a buyer's premium at your auctions?

Yes, a buyer's premium is a percentage added to the high bid to determine the final bid price.  For example if the buyer's premium is 10% and you pay $100.00 for the item you will pay $110.00 for that item.
