If you will be attending our auction for the first time, our staff is ready to help you and answer any questions you may have. We want you to be as comfortable with the procedures as we are. Here are a few tips.

When you arrive go to the registration counter or office trailer to register for a bidding number please have your driver’s license or other acceptable ID ready to show to the clerk. Please show your bidding number to the auctioneer after each purchase you make. 

Auction bidding is not something to be afraid of. You will not “buy the farm” if you scratch your nose; the auctioneer knows when you are bidding seriously. On the other hand, don’t wait too long if you want an item, get your bid in early so the auctioneer has the bid before the item is sold.
