Absentee bids are a way of bidding on an item
at an auction that you will be unable to attend personally. If you attend the
preview, you simply notify one of the auction personnel of the item you wish to bid on,
and the amount you are willing to bid up to. One of the auction personnel will then
bid during the auction up to that amount on the item you have selected. If you are the winning bidder,
you will be notified, and asked to pick up the item, or in some cases, it may be possible
to have it shipped to you.
strongly urge you to view the items personally prior to bidding.
However, if that is not possible, you may call 414-282-6987 to place your
absentee bid. Please note that all absentee bids must be placed prior
to 5 PM on the day prior to the auction.
Absentee bids are
entered for the opening bid, or the lowest incremental amount over the opening bid on the
floor, and are then advanced in keeping with the floor increments until the floor bids
cease or the absentee bid is exceeded.
bids below $25.00 will not be accepted. A 15% buyers fee will be added
to all successful absentee bids. Shipping charges (if any) will
be charged to your credit card when the shipping cost is determined.
If you have any questions, please ask BEFORE placing your bid.
Failure to personally inspect items of interest prior to placing an absentee
bid will not permit the absentee bidder to withdraw or cancel their bid or
refuse delivery of merchandise.
