Our auction is local, friendly and honest. It's ran a lot like eBay. The easy way is to register (no fee or card needed) take your time, look through the items and click "watch" on the items you're interested in. Then come back and put a high bid of what you would pay ($20). If you're the first bidder and the starting price is $5, then that's what your bid will show and you may win it at that price. Go about your business and when the auction is over, we'll contact you with a list of your winnings. The fun way is to watch it as it closes. Right before 6:30PM on Thursday night a colored heading will come across the top of the auction. It is asking you if you wish to watch it "live." This is the fun way. 12 items will show up across the screen with photos, how long until they end and the price it's at. Makes it very easy for you to follow what is about to end. You can even experiment and click one of the buttons at the top of the page and it makes the photos only of items you've placed on your watch list or that you've bidded on. Makes it feel much more like a real auction. Watch out for the 2 minute soft closes. If someone places a last second bid on an item an extra 2 minutes will be added to only that item. It allows the other bidders to bid higher, just like a real auction. That's the one thing that is different about ours and eBay. You can't Snipe ours. Remember, have fun and call me if you have questions.
We try our best to get accurate information and good photos but please check everything. Yes, you can come down and look at the items at our preview or by appointment. All lots are sold "as is" with no guarantee expressed or implied unless we say an item is tested and working, then you have our word and a 48 hr guarantee (gives you time to get it home and plug it in). If you are in the area it's always a good idea to make an appointment and drop by and see the items. If you can't, please don't hesitate to email or call and we'll answer any question we can and usually take additional photos if requested. On all listings we are going by what we were told by the estate/vendor or through our best knowledge. It is your responsibility to pre-check the items and verify it to your liking. Preview: by appointment. Please try to register and ask questions prior to the when the auction starts to end since we'll be pretty busy at that time and may not be able to return calls until after the auction is over. We use a "soft close" auction. That means if you are bidding on an item and someone makes a last minute bid, that item will be extended for 2 additional minutes, allowing you to make a counter bid. (Doesn't affect other lots) Payment: You will receive an invoice at the end of the auction. Payment must be paid within 48 hours. If you are paying other than on-line, please contact us prior. Pick Up: at our location in Vancouver. It is easy to get to but please make appointment to make sure we will be available. Due to items being at a client's space (Still Storage Works, we haven't moved) they must be picked up prior to Sunday, April 30th. Mailing: We can mail most of the items and cost is generally low so please feel free to ask for costs.
