o All bidding in this auction is being conducted online. (If you need assistance placing an online bid or prefer to submit a bid in person, please call our office for assistance 1-812-682-4000). Online-only auctions utilize the "Soft Close" feature that automatically extends the bidding time if a bid is received in the last minute of the published bidding period. The extensions will continue until a minute has lapsed without any bidding activity, at which time the auction is concluded.
o Dynamic Closing "Soft Close": The closing time of a lot is automatically extended an additional five (5) minutes any time a bid is placed on a lot when that particular lot has less than a minute left on its countdown. This will continue until there are no longer any bids submitted for that individual lot. It will stop extending when no bid has been placed in the last minute of that lot. This only affects lots with last minute bids. Any lot not bid on in the last MINUTE will continue to close at their normal times, listed on the time left.
o Maximum Bidding: This auction also features MAXIMUM BIDDING. If you enter a maximum bid and are outbid by another bidder, the system will automatically bid on your behalf at the established bid increments up to your maximum. In the case of an auction with a reserve, if the max bid amount entered is less than the reserve, the system will place the bid at the max amount. Once the reserve is met, then the system will advance the bid (by the bid increments) only when the bidder is outbid by another bidder, up to the bidders max. The Auctioneer does not know any bidder's maximum bid. The system will not advance a bidder's own bid. Another bidder has to bid to increase the current price and the computer will automatically bid up to your max in the increments specified. If someone has already entered a MAX BID on a property you are bidding on, the system will automatically bid for you until you are the current high bidder or until you reach your MAX BID. If you have reached your MAX BID and are still not the current high bidder, the system will give you the opportunity to enter another MAX BID. If you are not able to be around a computer/mobile device during the closing of the auction or receive and/or read your outbid notices, we HIGHLY RECOMMEND you enter your MAX BID when bidding.
o Please remember, you can always raise your max bid, but you CANNOT lower it. Be aware of this while bidding.
o If you have any questions please email [email protected] or call the office at 1-812-682-4000.
o When You Have Been Outbid: If you are outbid during the course of this auction, you will be notified by email, IF you have chosen this option when you registered. If you are outbid approaching the time of the auction beginning to end you may NOT receive your notification until after the auction ends. You can see if you are high bidder at any time using the "Watch List" feature; items which you have put on the Watch List will show winning bidder or outbid. Do NOT believe you are the winning bidder. If you are unsure of your bid status, before the auction begins to end email [email protected] your name and lot number and reason for the email or call 1-812-682-4000.
o Reporting Bidding Errors: You should carefully review every bid you choose to make before submitting that bid. The Auctioneer will not automatically assume that any bid was made in error. If you mistakenly increase your own bid at any time during the auction or make some other bidding error (e.g. placing your bidder number in the price field or too many zeros before the decimal point), you must immediately contact the Auctioneer by email at [email protected] or call the office at 1-812-682-4000. The Auctioneer will NOT undo bidding errors reported AFTER the auction has begun to close.
o CHOOSE WISELY: If YOU decide it is not suited for your intended use, our clients are not willing to assume the cost of your mistakes. When in doubt about condition, completeness, suitability for intended use, or exact location please bid accordingly.
o When becoming the winning bidder at auction, you have affected a contract and will be expected to pay for the property or properties in which you were evidenced to be the successful bidder.
