Proxy Bidding: If you can not attend the event or must leave early, but would like to bid on an auction item, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know the top amount you would like to bid and for what piece(s). An ACRE staff member will bid on your behalf in increments of $25 (minimum bid) until your top bid is reached. You will be notified the next day if yours was the winning bid and receive an invoice from paypal.
*Please note that you are not required to be present to win an auction item. If yours is the highest bid and you leave before the auction ends, we will contact you the following day with an invoice and arrangement for delivery of your item.
Payment and Delivery: You may take home your winnings that night, but you must make payment at that time. ACRE can accept most major credit cards, check or cash. If you prefer to pay for your item(s) at a later time, you can opt to receive a Paypal invoice and arrange delivery.
