HOW TO BID

 

HOW DO I GET STARTED BIDDING?   It's easy!  First, review the Auction Terms and Conditions.  Then go to our "Register To Bid" page, fill in and submit your information.   You will receive an email to confirm your email address.   Respond to the email and you're ready to go!

 

DO I BID JUST LIKE eBAY?   Yes and No!   Enter your maximum bid as you would on eBay.  Movin On Estate Sales East Coast will enter the amount needed to win the item and only increase the bid as needed.  However, Movin On Estate Sales East Coast has a "Soft Close" to prevent last second "bid sniping".

 

WHAT IS A "SOFT CLOSE"?    Unlike eBay and many other auction sites, Movin On Estate Sales East Coast extends the closing time if a bid is received in the last two minutes of the auction closing time. The five minute extension allows a bidder to go back in and increase the bid, rather than losing the item to a bidder who comes in at the last second.   The auction officially closes when all the bids are in! 

 

HOW DO I PAY FOR THE LOTS I'VE WON?    At the close of the auction, Movin On Estate Sales East Coast will email invoices to the winning bidders.   Movin On Estate Sales East Coast uses PayPal to accept payments via credit card or from your PayPal account.  You don't have to have a PayPal account to pay by credit card.     

 

CAN I PAY WHEN I PICK MY LOTS UP?    Yes, you may pay at the pickup with your credit card, check, or cash.  

 

WHERE DO I PICK UP MY WINNING LOTS?   Movin On Estate Sales East Coast will provide the address with your winning email invoice. 

 

WHAT IF I CAN'T PICK UP ON THAT DAY?   Contact us prior to bidding.  We will try to make an alternative arrangement with you.  Failure to make prior arrangements or failure to pick up on the specified day may result in a $10 fee for special handling.  

 

CAN MY ITEMS BE SHIPPED?   Small lots may be shipped.  Bidders must prepay for their lots plus additional shipping and handling fees.

 

Any questions can be emailed to us on the "Contact Us" page.  Please feel free to email or call if you have questions.  We will do everything we can to make your experience fun and enjoyable!
