We do NOT start your bid at the top amount. If no bid is offered from the audience, the auctioneer will generally start your absentee bid at 50% of the stated amount. In the event that we receive two identical bids, the first bid received will take precedence over the second left bid. While we take every reasonable precaution we are not responsible for missed or lost bids. Phone Bids: As a convenience to our buyers, we offer limited phone lines for bidding, at our discretion, on a first come-first served basis. Due to staff constraints, it is our policy to start phone bids at $500. If you wish to bid on an item for less than that amount, please leave an absentee bid. We encourage phone bidders to leave a backup bid in the event that our staff cannot reach you, especially in the case of international bidders. While we make every reasonable effort to execute phone bids, we are not responsible in the event of a missed bid, lost or dropped calls, wrong numbers, or busy signals. We may require a credit card or references for security purposes to secure any absentee bids. PAYMENT AND SHIPPING: ALL Items must be paid for within one week of the auction.
