UP-TO-BIDS or MAXIMUM BIDDING
If you wish to leave us a maximum bid, on a particular item, we will bid up to, but not beyond your maximum bid on your behalf. A courtesy callback is available, by request only, on items over $500.00. We will do our very best to notify you if your bid has been topped, as it is in our best interest to do so. Please be sure to give us all your phone numbers where you will be that night.
