Consignment Auction Terms & Conditions

Property Peddler Inc. makes reasonable efforts to make the website available at all times, however, Property Peddler Inc. is not responsible for any service interruptions, including, but not limited to, interruptions that may affect aspects of the sale of the equipment.
2. Bidding will begin a soft close 2 minutes before the lot is due to end and until bidding ceases. A soft close is a bidding feature that allows Bidders extra time to submit a bid if they are outbid during the final two minutes of bidding. During a soft close, the remaining bid time will be reset to 2 MINUTES after each new bid during the final 2 minutes of bidding on that particular item. The time period eventually runs out when bidding has ceased for a full 2 minutes. The purpose of a soft close is to allow everyone a fair chance to submit a higher bid. We encourage people to refresh bidding screens often to make sure timers are updated.
3. You may place a max bid on Listed property. When you place a max bid, our bidding technology will automatically place bids on your behalf, using the smallest increment necessary to ensure you remain the high bidder until your max bid is met. Once you place a bid on our website, it may not be retracted. If you have the winning bid, you are legally obligated to complete the transaction unless otherwise prohibited by law or regulation.
4. Unless otherwise specified, Consignment items can be previewed at the 443 Executive Center at 1811 N Market St, Sparta, IL, beside Buchheits.
