The information below helps to show the uses, terms, and responsibilities of Auction Transportation and its members. This information will serve as general instructions.

The Internet being the fragile environment that it is, Auction Transportation cannot be held responsible for server down time, or your inability to access our site. Notifications sent by email may take longer than expected, and cannot be counted on to inform you of an item's status. In the event of technical problems, we reserve the right to cancel, restart, or extend an auction as the circumstances may dictate.


In order to bid on or buy an item, you must first register with Auction Transportation. There is no charge for registering and it only takes a couple of minutes. Your personal and credit card information will NEVER be shared with any third party. The reason for the information asked during registration is for our protection to insure that we are all who we say we are. On every item in an auction, a minimum bid and a minimum increase is set. Our software will not accept a lower bid than either the opening bid, or the current bid plus the minimum increase. If an inappropriate bid is placed, a bidder will be notified immediately that their bid has not been accepted, and is provided with a form to correct the bid. Any current high bidders who are overbid at this time will receive notification by email.

On items with a quantity of 1, a Maximum Bid may be placed when bidding on an item. A Maximum Bid is confidential, and will be used only to increase your bid automatically in case you are overbid.

Auction Transportation may opt to auction more than 1 of any given item. In the case of quantities greater than 1, slightly different information will be displayed on the bidding form. Typically called a Yankee Auction, this format will allow bidders to state the quantity of the items that they are bidding on (it is not necessary to bid on the entire quantity). At the end of the auction, bidders with the highest bids will win the quantity they bid on, at the price they bid. In the event of a tie in the high bid, the bidder with the greatest number of items bid on will prevail. In the event of a tie in both high bid and quantity, the first time any bid on this particular lot has been placed by the bidder will prevail. The quantity is divided up between the winning bidders until there are none left. Often times a bidder will have a winning bid, but only a partial quantity is left at their bid level. In this case the bidder is expected to accept whatever quantity remains.


Each item has it's own ending time listed in the bidding form. The bidding time is also displayed on this form. Items end automatically at this time. The items remain viewable till midnight EST of that day, whereupon notifications are sent out to the winning bidders.

The results of items won in an auctions are displayed for a period of time on the main auction pages. By selecting an auction, the results for that auction will display the items and winning bidders. This information is provided as a service to our users, and should be used as a guideline to determine the market for a given item, as well as to see who you may be bidding against.

Your transaction history can be viewed from the members area on Auction Transportation. Here you will be able to view all of your recent purchases.


By placing a bid, you are legally and ethically bound to purchase the item should you be the highest bidder at the end of the auction. Fraudulent bids are not tolerated, and any recourse we feel necessary will be taken.

Having said all of the above, we wish you the best of luck whether buying or selling. We also welcome your comments, suggestions, compliments, and even complaints. Auction Transportation was designed with you in mind, and a great many of our improvements are direct results of your input.
