Well before the COVID-19 pandemic, online auctions were rising in popularity for a variety of reasons. The ease of being able to bid on items from the comfort of home was alluring to not only those bidders from out of town, but also for the regulars who just may not have the time. With an emphasis on safety and convenience, we’re here to answer some of your most frequent questions about online auctions.  

When should I register? 

We recommend registering as early as possible. Not only does this guarantee your ability to attend the auction but it also gives you the opportunity to work out any issues ahead of time. You don’t want to run into problems registering at the last minute. 

If I register, do I have to bid on an item? 

Nope! By registering to bid, you are simply gaining access to the auction and giving yourself the ability to place a bid. It’s basically your “ticket” to the particular auction you registered for.  

How do I register for an online auction?
