National Road Auction LLC Absentee Bid Policy Statement, Rob Knight, Auctioneer

Absentee bidding is a service we provide to our customers not able to attend the auction in person. National Road Auction LLC will make every effort to execute bids in a fair, competitive, confidential manner; however, National Road Auction LLC does not accept any responsibility for bids not executed for any reason.

All items are sold "AS IS" and "WHERE IS" without warranty or guarantees. It is the responsibility of the bidder to satisfy themselves as to the condition, age, authenticity, and the value of the item before bidding on such item. Bidding on an article(s) indicates your acceptance of the National Road Auction LLC Absentee Bid Policy and the Terms and Conditions of a Buyer. All Sales are Final and under no circumstances will a partial or full refund be made. Absentee bids may not be cancelled or retracted after the auction has started. No absentee bids under $10.00 will be accepted and a 10% clerking fee will be added to the final bid price plus any and all Ohio State Sales Tax if applicable.

National Road Auction Company personnel will competitively bid for the Absentee Bidder. Typically we let the bidders present in the auction facility start the bidding unless there is more than one absentee bid. If there is more than one absentee bid then bidding will begin at the next bidding increment above the previous bid. In the case of two absentee bids being the same amount the bidding will start at that amount and the winner shall be the person who left the bid first as long as the audience does not bid higher. All absentee bids are confidential, and as such the names of absentee bidders and bid amounts will not be given out.

All absentee bids are executed competitively, for example whoever reaches the highest bid first wins. This means if you leave an absentee bid on an item or lot for $100 and it sells for $100 it does not guarantee you were the high bidder on that item or lot. A bidder in the audience may have bid $100 first and was the final bidder on that item or lot. This is known as being on the wrong side of the bid and the only way to prevent this from happening is to attend the auction in person.

Bidding on article(s) indicates your acceptance of all of the above items plus the Terms & Conditions of a Buyer. All absentee bids are the sole property of the auctioneer and executed at the auctioneer's sole discretion.
