Auctions will open and close on various days throughout the week. All auctions will be 7 days in length. Comments and questions are recommended throughout the 7 days. This should give potential buyers ample time to get all question answered.
The bidding process is as easy as entering in a price above the current price and pressing submit. Upon bidding, a hold will be placed on your card for 4% of the amount with a minimum of $200 and maximum of $4,000. If you end up winning the vehicle that hold will be converted to a charge. If the vehicle is won by someone else, the hold will be released. Depending on your bank or credit card company, it can take a few days for the release to process.
Crunch Time: For the last 2 minutes of the auction, every new bid will reset the clock back to 2 minutes. Due to this bidding process auctions may close later than the scheduled time.
Seller’s Fee: list a Vehicle $75
Buyer’s Fee: 4% of the winning bid amount with a minimum of $200 up to $4,000.

Auction Post Sale Process
After a vehicle has been won, an email will go out to the winning bidder and the seller with each other’s contact info.
Arrangements for payment of the vehicle will be made between the seller and winning bidder. It is a safe practice to request a picture of the title and a bill of sale prior to sending payment.
The responsibility of pick up or transport of a vehicle is on the buyer.
Communication is the key to a smooth transaction.
Vehicle Reserve Price
Vendue House will work with the seller to set a reasonable reserve price. It is important that this reserve not be made public as it can hinder the interest and bidding process on your listing. You can lower your reserve throughout the auction if wanted.
On a listing with a reserve price set, if that price is not met the seller is not obligated to complete the transaction. The seller will receive the high bidder’s contact info to possibly work out a deal.
