Mississauga Auctioneer Answers Common Questions

posted on July 26, 2015 by Don Reinhart | No Comments

Over the years, we have received questions from individuals all around Ontario, including Mississauga, Ottawa, Guelph, etc. about how to prepare for auctions and what the process is like. We will answer some of these questions below!

  1. Do I have to pay an entrance fee to attend an auction? Auctions are free to attend. You will only need to pay at an auction when you have won an item.
  2. When should I arrive at an auction? If the auction allows for previews before it begins, you should attend it. Otherwise, arriving 30 minutes before an auction begins allows you ample time to register and explore.
  3. How do I register for an auction? When you attend an auction, you need to bring a government issued id (such as your driver’s license).
  4. Can I place a bid if I am not at the auction in person? Some auctions will allow you to place an absentee bid, where they will bid on your behalf, up until the maximum bid you’re willing to pay. Call the auctioneer ahead of time to confirm if they will be offering this.
  5. Can I return an item that I won? All items are final sale. Before bidding on an item, make sure that you have thoroughly inspected it.
