What is an internet-only auction?
An internet-only auction is a place where Sellers sell items in an online atmosphere. Internet-only events contain the same components (items, seller, bidder, price, quantity) as a traditional live auction; of course online events are done via the computer and the internet. At the scheduled time, items start closing in catalog order.
What is the difference between AUCTIONWAVES.COM and a traditional live auction?
Traditional auctions are generally conducted on-site and in place at the asset location. Bidders are required to arrive early for an inspection and must remain onsite for the duration of the event while items are sold one at a time. Removal is usually the sale day, the bidder may be required to come back to pickup their items. AUCTIONWAVES.COM events begin bidding weeks in advance of the event closing. Most auctions feature a preview or open house for inspection one or two days prior to the conclusion of the sale. Bidders can take their time to become familiar with the catalog, bid interactively or use the MaxBid which allows the system to bid on your behalf up to your set amount.
With any event, you can participate on your schedule and at your pace, from the comfort of your home or office. What happens if there are technical difficulties to the web site during the sale closing? If technical difficulties occur during the closing of a AUCTIONWAVES.com sale we reserve the right to extend the closing times/dates as needed.
