What is a Staggered Closing?
Sales on the Your Equipment Guys website typically close at 3 items per minute which means bidding will close on intervals. This feature works great with the auto-extend feature to closely emulate a 'live' auction. Sales with fewer items may close at 1 item per minute and larger sales with more items may close at 5 items per minute.
What is a Dynamic Closing?
The closing time of an asset is automatically extended an additional 3-5 minutes whenever a bid is placed within the last 3 to 5 minutes of the asset's closing time.
How Will I know If I’m Outbid?
If you have been outbid you will be notified by email until the close of the sale. To quickly review your bids and see if you have won you can utilize the 'review bids' feature. Items that they have been outbid on will be clearly marked.
