Auction Bidding Options
Buyers must register for a bidding number by giving name, address, phone number, and identification acceptable to us. Please show your bidding number to the auctioneer after each purchase you make. The highest bidder shall be the buyer, and if any dispute arises between two or more bidders, the auctioneer shall decide the buyer or immediately put the item up for sale again. In the event of a tie between an online bidder and the floor bidder, the successful bidder will be at the Auctioneer's discretion. The auctioneer's decision will be binding and final. Some lots are offered subject to a reserve, which is a confidential minimum price below which such a lot will not be sold. The record of sale, kept by the auctioneer and clerk, will be taken as absolute and final in all disputes.
Simulcast Auctions are conducted in front of a live audience. During these events select items presented in the auction may also be available for bidding in an online venue hosted by a third party provider. While the auctioneer is receiving bids from an assembled audience, phone and absentee bidders, the auctioneer is also taking bids from bidders who are bidding through the third-party providers in real time or by advance bidding. Following the auction the successful bidders are notified and payment arrangements are made; applicable buyer's premium applies. At its discretion, Brick's Auction Center may also accept bids from approved internet bidders. Brick's Auction Center or any of its staff shall not be held responsible or liable for any human or technical bidding errors, or internet bidding system shutdowns that may occur.
Online Only Bidding
Brick's Auction Center sometimes uses the services of a third party auction platform for online bidding. Please refer to third party website for how to register and bid online. Buyer is responsible for all online bidding. Brick's Auction Center cannot place bids for the buyer as the buyer must properly register and bid through the third party platform.
