Lightning Auctions is a company located in Sparks, Nevada that buys products and resells them through online auctions. It trades in vehicles, jewelry, electronics, tools, collectibles and more, even including whole estates.
Lightning Auctions makes use of online-only auctions but requires the winning bidder to pick up his new property in person in northern Nevada. Its auctions eliminate the standard online risk of last-second bidding via a soft-close practice that extends an auction's limit if a bid is placed within a minute of the ending time. Users can view all future auctions and plan their purchases according to the schedule posted on the company's site.
