How It Works - Timed Auctions
Registering to bid on WolfIron.net and AuctionTime.com is free and allows the bidder to view all sellers' information and actively bid on any piece listed on WolfIron.net and AuctionTime.com.
To register to bid, simply click on the register to bid link on the home page and go through the two-step registration process. Any information submitted through the registration process is 100% confidential.
Once you have submitted your registration for approval you will receive a phone call from an AuctionTime.com rep to finalize your registration and answer any questions you might have about the bidding process.
This feature allows you to place a bid in advance beginning one week before the ending of the auction. Once the 24-hour live auction officially begins, all proxy bids will be processed and email notification will be sent out regarding the status of your bid.
In order to place a proxy bid, click on the lot you’re interested in bidding on and type in your maximum bid in the Bid Now box. Once you’ve submitted your bid, you will go through a confirmation page where you will verify the amount you’ve entered. An email notification will be sent to you confirming that we have received your Proxy Bid.
Navigate The Site
Details Page – Each individual piece has its own details page. This page includes the auction information on the piece (lot number, opening bid, auction end date/time), seller information (which is only viewable by a registered bidder), specifications of the piece, inspection information on the piece and any available pictures of the piece. This page is found when an individual piece is clicked on from the many listings found on each tab.
Sorting – You are able to sort the items on the site in several different ways. Year, Manufacturer, Model, S/N, Price, and Location are all options for sorting. Once one of these headings is clicked, the viewable pieces will sort according to that category.
Bidding – A proxy bid can be removed at any time prior to the time live bidding opens (24 hours prior to the end of the auction). Prior to bidding, the buyer has access to contact the seller with any questions they have about the machine, shipping, sales tax, and payment details to avoid any issues once the auction has ended.
Winning Bidder – The winning bidder is expected to contact the seller immediately following the sale to set up payment and a time to pick up the item.
