Tips for Bidders: You can bid on items in this auction prior to auction day and then during the live auction. The online high bid on each lot will start the bidding in the live auction. Auctioneer does not recommend that bidders wait until the last second during the live auciton to place your bid on an item, it is always safer to place your max bid, the software bid for you and then wait and see what happens. If you are trying to bid online during the last few moments of a live auction, and there is any delay in your online connection, you may not get your bid in on time as the auctioneer only gives a quick warning, about 2-3 seconds before he says sold. No one else will know your maximum bid!  Pay attention to the quantities in lots where the items are sold times the money. The auction software will show you the math each time the lot is sold “times the money” (example: “20 x $5.00”). If you have questions, do not hesitate to contact our office for help (512)-261-3838 prior to auction day.
