AuctionBDI: Auction Site User Agreement



Our auction utilizes a modified sealed bid format that allows bidders to enter a low and high bid for each lot, with periodic notifications to bidders (around 4pm PST daily during auction cycle) of being outbid or bid being raised. Our system automatically raises the current bid amount by $1 at a time, so that the highest bidder will win the item for $1 over the 2nd highest bid. Bidders cannot delete or lower bids. If you make a mistake, please notify the office immediately.

Warranty information and condition is specified individually for each lot. AuctionBDI reserves the right to enter manual bids from bidders without Internet access after the auction closes and prior to winner notification when the auction closes on a weekend, holiday or after normal business hours.

We encourage you to come and look at the product you are bidding on. Our hours of operation are Monday thru Friday 8am to 5pm, closed on weekends. Minimum bid amount is $25 per lot or higher if specified by lot detail information. Bids less than $25 will not be accepted. A buyers premium of 25% (or as specified) will automatically be added to your winning bids to help cover our operating costs. Winning and losing bidders are notified by e-mail. If for some reason you do not receive our emails, please login to your account to check bid status. If you do not have an e-mail address you will need to contact our office to enter and check on your bid.

Payment: We accept cash, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, company checks for approved customers, and PayPal for approved customers (please contact the office).

If you make your own shipping arrangements, please fax a copy of the Bill of Lading to our office @(408)955-7914. There is a $10 per lot charge for packing and handling, up the UPS max of 70 pounds. This is in addition to any shipping charges. For palletizing of larger lots the charge is $20 per pallet, in addition to freight shipping charges.
