An Auction Guide


Reserve Bids - Index


  • Auctioneers do accept items with reserved bids. If you have an item(s) for sale and you would like to establish a base price, you can set a reserve price for that item(s). Keep your amounts reasonable.

  • If you are placing 'reserve' bids on items you take to auction, keep your prices reasonable. Nobody appreciates advertised item(s) that have high reserve bids. If you do this and the item(s) do not come close to the reserve price, potential customers will not return to the auction house and the auctioneer may ban you from selling at his auction and will notify auctioneers in the surrounding area. NOTE: not all auctioneers will do this, but trust me, they will not appreciate it and it can adversely affect the sale of any additional items that you may have.

  • If you have a large household or quantity of items for sale. You can leave reserve bids on select items. But, keep the amount and price of reserves reasonable.

  • When you do take item(s) to auction for sale, respect the person that is accepting your items. Most likely this is the auctioneer or 'feeder'. Trust their opinion. They will do the best job possible for selling your item.

  • Navigation is accomplished by using the main menu on the left. Just click on the red help book next to the words Auction Guide and the topics will unfold. Or you can use the index below.
