BIDDING ERRORS: Increasing your own bids.... please be aware that many bidders routinely increase their own bid to price an item out of reach of other bidders. You should immediately review your bids before submitted. If you mistakenly increase your own bid, place your bidder number in the bid field, or make a gross error you must immediately contact our office by email using the contact sheet on our website (we must have your request in writing) you must remain the high bidder.

We will not reverse bids after the auction has begun to close no exceptions.
STAGGERED CLOSING: Sales on the Auction Factory website typically close at 3 items per minute which means bidding will close on intervals. This feature works great with the auto-extend feature to closely emulate a 'live' auction. Sales with fewer items may close at 1 item per minute and larger sales with more items may close at 5 items per minute.
DYNAMIC CLOSING: The closing time of an asset is automatically extended an additional 3 minutes whenever a bid is placed within the last 3 minutes of the asset's closing time.

If you feel you have won an item and have not received an email you must notify us by email no later than 9am the next day. If you do not receive a paid email invoice then you did not win any items at the online auction. Please make sure to check your "spam" folder in your email - these are automatically generated emails from our system and sometimes they do get marked as spam by email providers.
NON-DELIVERY: In the event an item is not available for pickup, the buyer must notify our onsite staff and file a claim by replying to your original emailed invoice noting what was not available within 24 hours of the pickup date.
