Auction Terms & Conditions

BUYERS PREMIUM applies - All auctions have a 15% Buyer's Premium added or $1 minimum per invoice whichever is higher. Unlike sites like Ebay, auctioneers sell other peoples' items. The costs of auctions are paid by buyers not sellers. This is standard for any type of auctions.

SOFT CLOSE applies - If you bid within the final minutes there will be additional time added to allow the previous high bidder to respond as in a live auction setting.

Proxy Bidding is enabled - If you place a maximum bid in the bidding box, HIBID will bid on your behalf up to your maximum bid. (further explanation is below)

DO NOT call, text or email to request pickup info please. All info you need is provided before you bid.

ANY cases of chargebacks to your card will be subject to additional penalties. In cases where you have an issue it is always prudent to contact us first. We incur additional fees for chargebacks and it takes significant wasted time for us to forward all the Terms & Conditions you agree to, which includes paying and showing up to retrieve your items, to the banks involved. If we incur charges and you have not contacted us you will be subject to pay the additional $30 - $60 chargeback fees we incur and it will be handled as a civil or small claims matter. You agree to our terms and conditions when you sign up and following through with your agreement is your responsibility.

READ YOUR E-MAIL MESSAGES. We communicate regularly to all registered bidders so you may find e-mails from "AF360" or "HIBID" Please watch for important messages. Any issues, problems or changes with the auction will be e-mailed to the address you used to sign up.

NO MASK - NO ENTRY to pickup items
  • Wear a mask.
  • only move to where you are directed to get items.
  • Keep distance and allow others inside to maintain space while retrieving items.
  • No one else will be allowed entry with you unless you are moving large items or a large number of lots. 
  • ALL COVID PRECAUTIONS WILL BE STRICTLY ADHERED TO! This includes any help or movers. Please do not bring extra people other than the workers required to move your items. Be sure that the people you bring or send understand our rules.

    There is no medical, personal, legal or opinion otherwise that voids this requirement.

    THANKS TO ALL WHO ARE COOPERATING.

    If you, or anyone picking up with you or for you does not follow our required safety guidelines regarding masks we, unfortunately, can not allow you entry. You will NOT receive a refund and will forfeit your purchases. These rules were agreed to, by you, before you are permitted to bid and are not negotiable after you purchase.

    NO MORE EXCEPTIONS!

    We don't change rules based on opinion or political views. It is a State-mandated requirement for businesses and It also allows other buyers to feel safe to buy from us. Non-masked, or non distanced people entering the homes are against our contract with our clients, the homeowners. Although we do our best to give you a safe individual appointment there are hundreds of people entering within 1-2 days so it's important we follow guidelines. We risk our business closing, fines or legal ramifications so we can not do that because someone's opinion doesn't match state mandates.

    There is no more "discussion" on this matter. You are free to not wear a mask but if that is your choice we ask that you refrain from purchasing until masks are no longer a state-mandated requirement of our business. We can hope to see you again and resume non-mask activity when the CDC and other health experts along with NYS determine it is no longer necessary. You also have the option to send someone to pickup that can/will wear one.

    The alternative is If you have small items and LESS than 5 lots we can put items outside in most cases for you to retrieve but we need to know in advance of your buying and before your appointment. We are not responsible to monitor items if you do not arrive at your scheduled time or weather changes and we will not retrieve them or you fail to make it to your appointment once an item is placed outside.

    Proxy Bidding Details - (further explanation is below)

  • Example #1 - The bid is at $1, You enter $10. If no one else bids your bid would start and end at $2
  • Example #2 - Using the same bid above. If other bidders bid up to $5, your final winning bid would be $6
  • Example #3 - Using the same bid above. If other bidders bid up to $10, your final winning bid would be $10 since bidding preference goes to first bid in.
  • Example #4 - Using the same bid above. If the first bidder enters a max bid of $9. You see a $1 bid so you add a max bid of $10. Once you enter you see your bid immediately jump to $10 and you win at $10. Its important to note if your bid jumps that way it means a previous bidder also has a max bid in. If you lose at $10 and see the winning bid is $10, that means the previous bidder also put a max bid of $10 or more. Since winning preference goes to first person with their bid in. You will lose that bid. You will also have time to add a higher bid

    Payment Terms
    1. We charge your card on file, that you signed up with, at auction completion. Unless you are paying cash (see instructions below) 2. You will receive an e-mail invoice from "AF360" - which is through HIBID. It is labeled SETTLEMENT - You are responsible to check your e-mail and spam. (search AF360 or Settlement to locate) We have no way to know which people are not seeing or getting messages. We use the email you signed up with and one message goes to everyone. 3. If the settlement shows unpaid you will have a link in your e-mail to pay with an alternate card (called Currency Pay through HIBIDs processor) or you need to follow payment instructions regarding paying cash at your pickup appointment (below). 4. Anyone using cards that do not have funds will incur a $5 fee for declined cards and you may be barred from future auctions for repeat offenders. If you have a card on file with HIBID, it is your responsibility to update that accordingly before you buy. The card is for the purpose of paying for your items. If you fail to follow through or book a pickup as instructed, even cash buyers, we will be billing your card for your purchases. No shows are still obligated as per the Terms & Conditions you agree to, to pay for the items you agree to buy and it's your responsibility to arrange alternate pickup arrangements BEFORE you bid if you are not going to be available. 5. ANY no shows, non-paying or not following the rules, regardless of whether you made it to pickup to get your items or not, may be PERMANENTLY BLOCKED. The HIBID system is set up so once one auctioneer blocks you the others can see that and typically follow suit. ANY non-payment or issues will likely result in being blocked from multiple auction houses. To avoid that, be responsible to pay your auctioneer for items you bought!, AND read all the rules, follow them, and be at pickups NO EXCEPTIONS. This online auction model does not work if you do not do your part. Follow the rules and follow through on your purchases. 6. PAYING WITH CASH OR VENMO - TAKING CASH is a courtesy, however, the following applies - a. We are no longer accepting PERMANENT cash buyers. You need to specify you want to pay cash when you sign up FOR EACH AUCTION. There is a place to designate you are paying cash where you sign up. Please sign up with the card you intend to use to pay. If you use a card without funds we will no longer allow you to bid in the future. Even if you are paying cash - The card on file must be valid and able to be charged for your purchases. NO EXCEPTIONS. b. Any cash you bring MUST be exact change or round up. Most items are paid by card so we do not bring change nor do we process cards at the pickups. c. Money must be in an envelope or small ziploc bag WITH YOUR INVOICE or your name and invoice number on it. We will count cash after pickups so any missing funds will be withdrawn from your card account on file. 7. TAX EXEMPTIONS - Due to exemption abuses we are no longer taking tax exempt certificates. If you are already set up as tax exempt that will remain in place. If you are tax exempt you need to claim that credit yourself when filing your quarterly sales tax.
