- BUYER'S PREMIUM
A 4% buyer's premium will be added to all successful bids and is payable by the purchaser as part of the total purchase cost. A 4% discount is applied to payments made with cash, check or money order.
There will be a $7 packing and handling fee per successful lot. If you are picking up your item, the fee will be waived.
- CONDITION OF ITEMS
Seeck Auctions makes every effort to accurately describe all items offered in its sales. All damages seen at time of listing have been identified. Common nicks, scratches, Manufacturing issues, pinheads and wear has not been called. If an item is found to be different than listed, it will be announced and no absentee bids will be entered on item. HOWEVER, all items for sale are "as is," and it is the bidder's responsibility (present or absentee bidders) to determine the exact condition of each item. Seeck Auctions will not be held responsible for typographical errors.
We do NOT guarantee clocks to be in running order.
- ABSENTEE BIDS
1) If you DO NOT have internet access or access to our website, you can:
Call us by phone to enter your bids at (641)424-1116 OR
By sending the numbers of the item(s) desired and the amount bid on each to:
Seeck Auctions, PO Box 377, Mason City, Iowa 50402. (The mail has not been very dependable. We
would prefer you call us with your bids rather than send them in a letter.)
* All written and called in bids will be entered into the online catalog by us.
2) Bidders may preview, register and place bids into the online catalog through our Website using the Auction Flex system.
When you get to the online catalog, you will need to login as a bidder. For the first time you will need to set up your
account by creating a username and password. This will include filling out a form with your name, address, etc. You
will also need to enter a valid credit card number. This card will be validated by a $1 charge to your card. This will
only happen once and you will now be able to enter bids through any of our online catalogs by just logging in with your user
name and password.
You are not required to pay by credit card if you are successful this is just a safeguard for us if someone does not pay.
We will let you know what you owe us through an email and you can decide how you would like to pay us. Credit card
payments have a buyer’s premium of 4%. There is a $7 fee per successful lot plus shipping and insurance.
An exciting advantage of entering your bids online yourself, is the option to be notified by email if you are outbid on an
item. You will know when you are outbid on an item and you can increase your bid on that item or bid on something
There will be a cutoff date and time for entering your bids online. After this time has passed, you will not be able to
enter your bids from our online catalog.
• Remember, that just because you are the high bidder in the online catalog, this does not mean you have won the
item. Your bid will still need to beat the floor bidders and live phone bidders. This system will run our absentee bids just as we did before. You will still be able to buy the item lower than your online bid unless someone on the floor bids you higher.
During the live sale, the auctioneer will execute your absentee bid competitively up to the maximum amount you have indicated.
All bids must be left in increments as explained below. If a left bid is "out of increment," the auctioneer has the right to round
the bid up to the next correct increment.
If there is a tie bid between any bidding venues, the floor bid takes precedence.
$1 - $100/$5
$100 - $200/$10
$200 - $700/$25
$700 - $1500/$50
$1500 - $3,000/$100
