Items are made available for preview depending on venue and the type of event.
Bidders should carefully consider the descriptions, photos, details and terms of sale, then bid accordingly if there is no preview.
Once you are registered online bidding is easy. You simply need to be logged in and visit an item listing. Each bid you place is considered your Max-Bid (the maximum amount you are willing to pay at this time). If you choose, you can bid intermittently along with other bidders, increasing your bid as you go, or you can just bid the actual maximum you are willing to pay. The system will bid incrementally for you against other bidders until the auction expires or your Max-Bid has been reached. IMPORTANT: You should refresh your browser before placing a bid to see if anyone has bid on the item during the time you were on the page. It is also advisable to refresh your browser after placing a bid. If another members Max-Bid is higher than the bid you just placed the system will have automatically bid for them and you may have been outbid. Refresh-Bid-Refresh!

All items are required to be picked up at the physical location noted in the event details unless otherwise specified. All Points Auction Company does not guarantee assistance during removal. Our On-Site Auction clients often need their location empty so items not picked up during the removal time will be considered abandoned.

If the description does not match the photograph, there was an error. You are bidding on the described item not the picture. Please notify our customer service team if you believe an item is incorrectly photographed.
