Online Bidding Information


When bidding you have the option to Bid yourself or have the computer Bid on your behalf (Maximum Bid) with the option of placing a maximum bid which is the maximum price that you are prepared to pay. The Online Auction System will bid on your behalf up until your nominated maximum bid, this saves you from continually from checking the Online Auction. Please keep in mind you may be the highest bidder, at a lessor price than your original maximum bid.

If another bidder indicates a higher maximum than yours, you will be notified by an email notification. Please keep in mind you are only notified once you have been are outbid, it does pay to check the Online Auction prior to the close time.

If another potential purchaser bids a price the same as your maximum bid, you will remain the highest bidder as you placed the bid first.
