<<MINIMUM BIDS & MINIMUM BID RAISES>>
The online auction platform requires us to set a specific minimum bid. For the most part, the minimum bid for each item will be the value of the item.
Also, please be aware that minimum bid raises are set according to the value of the item. For items valued less than $50, the minimum bid raise will be $1. For items valued at $50-$199, the minimum bid raise will be $3. For items valued at $200-$499, the minimum bid raise will be $5. For items valued at over $500, the minimum bid raise will be $10. (There may be occasional variation to this rule of thumb.)
<<HOW TO USE MAXIMUM BID TO MAKE YOUR BIDDING EASIER>>
When you click on a package to bid on it, click on BID MORE. In the window that pops up, on the bottom right, there is a green button that says SET MAX BID. There you can set an amount for your maximum bid and the system will gradually bid for you until other people stop bidding or until the highest bid is reached. It will not go beyond the max bid amount that you set.
<<FOR WINNING BIDDERS - HOW TO PICK UP ITEMS>>
PICK-UP TIME - FRIDAY, NOV. 3 FROM 3-8 PM AT NORTH EAST HAVEN GARAGES. If you are not able to come then, we will contact you on the following week. We will not be able to assist you on the weekend (Nov. 4-5).
