PRIOR TO BIDDING. Carefully read the terms or conditions set out for each sale, as they will vary and understand…
1. the start and the end dates,
2. the preview dates and times,
3. the location of the items to preview,
4. the bidding increments (whether bids increase by $2, $3, $5, $10, $20 etc),
5. the location of the items to pick up
6. the dates and times scheduled for pick up
7. the buyer's premium charged on each item (15% of the amount bid)
8. we recommend you first preview and carefully examine each item you are interested in. You are welcome to bring in an expert, as all items are sold As Is, Where Is, with all faults.
BID on the items that interest you. Please note that all bids are final. You cannot retract a bid. Excell Auction Services Inc., at its sole discretion, may ban from further use, any buyer or seller which Excell Auction Services Inc. believes to have in any way, misrepresented itself or any item selling, failed to abide by the terms, or conducted any improper auction behavior as determined solely by Excell Auction Services Inc. Any seller who misrepresented their items and any buyer who improperly fails to carry through with a purchase will be banned from any further use and may be subject to additional legal actions.
OPENING BIDS: The first bid called for may be $2.00, $5.00 or up to $5,000.00 depending on the item.
BID INCREMENTS: This is how your next bidding amount is calculated:
Up to $199 = $5.00
Up to $999 = $10.00
Up to $2,499 = $25.00
Up to $4,999 = $50.00
Over $5,000.00 = $100
MAXIMUM BID. We recommend leaving your maximum bid. This is not the amount you may have to pay. For example: the increments of an auction is $5. That means that the software will bid $5 at a time for you as other bidders bid against you. If you put a maximum of $50 and another bidder put a maximum of $20, your bid would become $25. If another bidder bid $55 you would be out bid. If you checked the box when you bid, you will be notified by email at that time and you can place another bid if you wish.
POSTED CLOSING TIMES AND SOFT CLOSE. All times are displayed in Eastern Standard Time. In order to prevent sniping (people trying to win the bid by bidding at the last second) we offer a soft close. If there is a bid on a lot during the last 3 minutes of bidding, it will force the bidding to remain open on this lot for another 3 minutes. This will carry on until all bidding has ceased and there is no activity on that particular lot.
WINNING BIDDERS will be notified shortly after the auction. Your credit card will be charged to your Visa or MasterCard, for the price of the items you have won plus buyer premium and taxes, unless prior to bidding, you have contacted the Auctioneer (under the notes to the auctioneer when you register) to request to pay by Cash, Debit or Bank Drafts. Please bring the credit card you registered with, if this is your choice of the method of payment. No item listed on your invoice will be released unless your invoice is completely paid in full in Canadian Funds. Excell Auction Services Inc. reserves the right to charge any balance (or remaining) of your purchase invoice on your credit card. All bidders will be subject to Ontario sales tax of 13% (HST).
