PROXY BID OR MAX BID: Proxy bidding or Max bid, sometimes called absentee or automatic bidding, is a method for online auction bidding. How it works is the person who wants to bid on an item decides a maximum amount that he or she is willing to pay for it in advance, and bids this amount. That bid is hidden in our system.  As other bids are made, our system automatically increases the person's bid by pre-specified increments until the maximum amount is reached. If the bidder is monitoring the auction, at this point he/she can give up or choose to increase his bid. You don't have to continually monitor an auction to win an item, and they can bid on several items at once.

Bid Wisely: You are responsible for every bid amount placed. If you bid on the wrong item/lots or decide that the item/lots is no longer wanted our clients will not pay for your mistake. When in doubt do not bid.

MY ACCOUNT PAGE  “My Account” is where user`s manage their accounts, watched items, Auction your bidding on,  view bids, view invoice, pay invoices, send a support request, update account information. 

CAN I PREVIEW THE ITEMS BEFORE I BID? In most case, Yes, We will hold a preview any time that it is possible before the beginning of bidding. We strongly encourage attendance, so you can assess condition for yourself.  We are selling used, antique and vintage items some wear should be expected. Being on the sellers property any other time is trespassing and will not be tolerated. If you have questions regarding an item please contact us. 

HOW DO I PAY? After the Auction has closed, You will receive an Auction Won notice in your registered email address. You can also look in your account for an invoice.  Log On to your account and go to “MY ACCOUNT” and view your invoice.  You may pay immediately after winning the bid by PayPal which accepts most major credit cards or at the pickup time and date with cash or credit.  No Item/lots will leave the premises without payment in full.

INTERNET/BUYER PREMIUM A 10% buyer's premium will be charged on all lots sold. Every bidder pays the same buyer's premium and should bid accordingly. For example, if your bid wins the lot at $100, you will be charged $110 plus tax for the item on your auction invoice. When calculating the final price, the buyer's premium is added to the selling price before sales tax is calculated


PENNSLYVANIA SALES TAX:  Sales tax rates vary by area. 6% is the current tax rate for our area depending on location.
