Alderfer Auction has Several Types of Online Auctions Available to meet the needs of our clients and customers. Each venue has unique qualities, please read the definitions below.

ONLINE ONLY TIMED AUCTIONS
IDENTIFIED AS “ALDERFER ONLINE”

An online only timed auction is an online auction run largely by the computer. Items are posted on www.AlderferAuction.com along with photos and descriptions. The items are posted for 5-10 days prior to the close of the auction. From the comfort of your home you may view and monitor your bids 24/7. For your convenience, these items are also available to be viewed at the facilities of Alderfer Auction during advertised preview times. The computer bids on behalf of the bidder against any competition from the lowest possible bid to the maximum bid specified. Bidders are notified by email if they have been outbid. This provides the option for the bidder to increase their bids should they so choose. 

Another unique feature in our timed auction is extended bidding. Alderfer Auction does not allow sniping. It's a bid placed within the last 3 minutes of a lot’s scheduled end time, we extend the sale by 3 minutes from the last bid. This way other bidders have a chance to place a bid. Extending bidding continues until 2 hours after the last lot scheduled and time. All purchases are billed to the high bidder’s credit card at time of purchase; applicable buyer’s premium applies.
