AUCTION ENDS: Thursday, November 9, beginning at 10:30 AM and one item every minute, thereafter.

BIDDING: We strongly encourage Bidders to do their research BEFORE placing bids. At the same time you place a bid, you may also place a Max Bid, which will enable the system to place bids, on your behalf, in the pre-set increments. The system will increase your bid ONLY when/if another Bidders places a bid, against you. Example: if you place a starting bid for $250 with a Max Bid for $1000, and no one else bids, you win the vehicle for $250. If another Bidder places bids for $300, the system automatically will place a bid of $350, for you.  NOTE: If you place a Max Bid for $1000 the day before the auction ends, and someone else places a bid for $1000, the morning of the auction, our system will choose YOU as the winning bidder, since you placed a bid for that amount first
