 BIDDING

You must be registered and logged in order to bid online.  All bidders must be 18 years of age or older.

 

Pre-Bidding:  You may preview items online and place an online bid at any time up to one (1) hour before live bidding begins.  When bidding, you will be able to view the current high bid for each lot.  You can enter a maximum bid amount, just like on eBay.  If someone else bids, the system will automatically increase your bid up to your maximum bid amount, with the intention of winning the item at the lowest possible price. If someone outbids you, we will notify you so you can decide if you want to increase your maximum bid.

 Telephone bids from registered bidders will be accepted between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. (CST), Monday through Friday, at (574) 532-1381, up to one (1) hour before live bidding begins.  Remember that bidding is a contractual obligation. When placing a maximum bid, be sure you're prepared to pay that amount if you win the auction.

 Bid Increments:  The amount the bid increases when someone bids is the bid increment.  The following bid increments will apply to all auctions.

Reserve Amounts:   In addition to minimum opening bids, the Owner/Consignor may set a reserve that represents the minimum price they will accept for the lot.  If your bid doesn’t satisfy the Seller’s reserve, we will notify you so you can decide if you want to increase your maximum bid. All items that meet reserve will be sold to the highest bidder. 

 Live Bidding:  Live bidding will start with Lot #1 and continue in numerical order until the completion of all lots up for auction that day.  To participate in live bidding, please log in to your account and click on the “Live Auction” button.  The lot’s “Details” page will show bids as they come in and the current highest bid for the lot.  You may enter a higher bid by clicking the appropriate button.  In the event two bids of the same amount are placed on an item, the first bid will be honored.  You will be notified if you are the high bidder and if you won the lot.    

 

During live bidding, Good Guys will attempt to provide registered bidders access to bidding by phone, but cannot guarantee such access.  Please call us at (574) 532-1381 or submit a written request via email to info@theGoodGuys.auction no less than 48 hours before live bidding begins to request a call during the auction. 

 A bid cannot be cancelled or retracted once you place it. In the event of a disagreement regarding bids, Good Guys’s determination shall be final.  Good Guys reserves the right to accept, reject or limit the amounts of any or all bids by any bidder for any reason and in its sole discretion.

 Consignor bidding and shill bidding are strictly prohibited.  Bid manipulation of any kind is expressly forbidden. A consignor may not place bids or arrange to have bids placed on his or her behalf. Shill bidding is any bid(s) placed by a person or persons to drive up the final price and without intent to take ownership of the lot. It is against the law to make bids in a false name or with an invalid payment method, even if Good Guys’s software initially accepts a bid. The bidder agrees to not use any device, software or routine to interfere or attempt to interfere with the proper working of any transaction being conducted on and during any auction sale.

 Buyer’s Premium:  A buyer’s premium will be added to all successful bids and is part of the total purchase cost.  The buyer’s premium is 15% of the winning bid price, which will be discounted to 12% if payment in full is made by check or money order within 7 days following the end of the auction.  Third party platforms may assess additional fees. Please refer to your selected platform which will indicate the buyer’s premium for that particular platform and auction.

 INVOICING, TAXES & FEES

Invoices will be emailed to all winning bidders. Invoices are also available online within 24 hours following the close of the auction. Winning bidders who do not have access to internet or email may request a paper invoice be mailed to them by calling (574) 532-1381 or emailing info@theGoodGuys.auction the Monday after auction close or notifying Good Guys in advance. Invoices are due and payable within 14 days after the close of the auction.  However, you must pay via check or money order within seven (7) days after the close of the auction to receive the 3% discount on the buyer’s premium. 

 

Sales tax will apply to items that are picked up at our Indiana office or shipped to winning bidders within the State of Indiana.  Certain countries, regions, states, counties and municipalities may charge taxes or fees to buyers living in their jurisdictions. Please familiarize yourself with these and how they will affect your purchase prior to bidding

 

PAYMENT

Payment must be received within 14 days after the close of the auction. Payment may be in the form of personal check, certified/cashier’s check, money order, no-fee wire transfer or Paypal. MasterCard, Visa, Discover and American Express credit cards are accepted.  Please include your username and lot number(s) purchased as the “additional information” that you may provide when paying via no-fee wire transfer.

 To receive the 3% discount on the buyer’s premium, you must pay via check or money order within seven (7) days after the close of the auction.  Payment may be mailed to Good Guys Auctions, 54485 Pleasant Valley Drive, Osceola IN 46561.

 If a winning bidder does not pay an invoice in full within 14 days following closing date of the auction, Good Guys retains the right to cancel the sale and return the item(s) to the consignor(s), sell the given item(s) to an under-bidder, re-offer the item(s) at subsequent auction(s) or for private sale, dispose of the item(s) by other means, or hold the non-paying winning bidder liable for the purchase price plus any and all losses incurred.  The non-paying winning bidder agrees to pay any and all costs of collection, including legal fees and court costs incurred by Good Guys in collection of these losses. A 1.5% monthly interest rate will incur on all unpaid invoices after 30 days.

 TITLE, RISK OF LOSS & REMOVAL

Upon the close of bidding for the item, title to the offered lot will pass to the highest bidder who thereupon assumes full risk and responsibility for any loss or damage to the property.  Removal is at the sole expense and risk of the Buyer. 

 Following payment, the Buyer is solely responsible for and assumes all risk for packing, insuring, and transporting the item(s) purchased.  Upon request, Good Guys may as a courtesy assist the Buyer in packing or transporting items; however, any loss or damage occurring during packing and/or transit shall remain the Buyer’s sole responsibility.

 The Buyer is responsible for and will be invoiced for all shipping, handling and insurance costs. Payment for your invoice must clear in full prior to shipping.  All packages will be shipped with $50.00 Postal insurance Coverage in the order that payments are received. The Buyer May Request Additional Insurance Coverage at the Buyer's sole cost and Expense. Please allow up to four (4) business days following clearance of payment for items to ship. Extremely large or heavy items may require special shipping arrangements. Packages will be shipped to the shipping address identified in your account. Non-US buyers are responsible for paying any customs and/or duties that apply.

If such outages occur, Good Guys may at its discretion extend bidding for the auction, and/or allow a bid to be placed by a bidder who was unable to bid by deadline. Good Guys is not responsible for system errors and/or software problems if they occur during an auction, or the failure of the auction program to execute any bids on behalf of the bidder.  Bidders unable to place bids through the Internet should contact us at (574) 532-1381 (phone) or info@theGoodGuys.auction (email).
