Remember when placing auto-bids that our site does not use pennies (0.19, 0.77, 0.99, etc). All bids are in whole dollars and must be a complete & full bid increment above the previous high bid. Please check the item to make sure that your bidder number is listed as the High Bidder, if not, then you are not the successful bidder.

How to place an Auto-Bid or a Max-Bid:

1. To place a maximum bid or an auto-bid, just enter the maximum amount you are willing to bid on an item and enter that amount where it says “Place Bid”. 2. The program will bid on your behalf up to your maximum bid. 3. Always remember to refresh your page to see current price. 4. Remember when placing auto-bids that our site does not use pennies (0.19, 0.77, 0.99, etc). All bids are in whole dollars and must be a complete & full bid increment above the last bid. Please check the item to make sure that your bidder number is listed as the High Bidder, if not, then you are not the successful bidder.

I bid $ x.xx amount and the program says it accepted my bid, but I am not the high bidder? Why?

Someone has previously placed an auto-bid or a max-bid amount higher than your bid. See item #6 above.


Always look to make sure that your bidder number shown on home page next to your name where it says, “Welcome, John Doe (1234)”, is listed on the item as the High Bidder. You should refresh your web page to make sure of the current information.

I'm a high bidder on an item , where do I find information about Pickup & Removal ? and Why is this date & time important ?

Pickup & Removal information can always be found in two (2) places: 1. On the home page or main calender page. Date, time and location are listed. 2. On each item page, in the box labeled “terms and conditions., the date, time & location are listed, as well as the “location” column. It is so very important that you come to the scheduled pickup. 1. BoldBids,L.L.C. is under contract on every auction we perform. Based on the terms of the contract all items must be removed by a certain date & time. BoldBids must then return keys and are not allowed entry after a certain date and time. If we can’t get in you can’t get in. 2. The auction calender is created months in advance. A great deal of time & effort goes into the planning and arrangement of the calender. Please respect this. 3. Keep in mind that the seller is having an auction for a reason. The seller wants the items to leave the premises. 4. If you, or a representative for you, can NOT attend the scheduled pickup date, time and location then please forgo (do not) bid. Please respect this.
