How does bidding on a soft close auction work?


During auction closing, watch your lots as the timer begins to run out.  Most of our auctions are “soft close” so the lots stagger closing and may reopen for more time to bid if someone bids against you.  You may continue to bid until the timer is expired.  The timer will continue to extend the time as long as the bidding continues.


You also may place a “max” bid, please note: this WILL NOT drive up the bid to that amount. This will simply secure the lot for you up to that particular amount. Just because you have a max bid of $100, you will not necessarily pay $100 for it, it will be sold at the highest amount.  If nobody bids against you then your max may not be reached.  If someone else is already bidding and has entered a max bid then your bid may automatically go up to counter theirs.


Can I cancel my bid?

No, all bids are binding and cannot be canceled or retracted.  If there is an error or malfunction in the system and you must edit a bid, you must contact our office via email at tylergraceauctions@gmail.com

  2. At the top you will see your username by clicking on this a drop-down menu will appear with all the items you are currently bidding on, watching, and past bids.
