Auction completes
When the auction timer ends, we will present to you the highest bid and request the verified buyer to pay the invoice within the next 10 business days. If your auction item had a reserved price that was not reached, then we will contact you and the buyer to negotiate on a final price.
Once the payment has been transferred to your account, we will arrange for the equipment to be picked up from your yard. The equipment and title should only be released once the seller has the full payment.
