To bid on a Steffes auction, register an account on the official website, click Request to Bid, and wait for approval. If approved, select Enter the Auction, and click Place a Bid on your desired listing.
Besides clicking the Request to Bid button found on individual auctions, you may select Register Now on the right side of the screen to register an account. When redirected to the registration page, provide all necessary information, including your email, password, contact number, preferred time zone and address. Mark the Website Terms and Conditions box, type the security validation code, and click Submit Registration to finish the process.
Successful registration leads to an automatic login, returning you to the auction page where you can find your assigned bidder number. The Enter Auction button appears once you receive approval to bid. When bidding in a timed auction, enter your maximum bid on the box with a starting bid. You cannot bid in any auction if your request to bid is declined by Steffes Group. Call 800-726-8609 if the rejection is in error.
Bidding extensions continue an auction beyond the closing time if a person placed a bid in the final minutes of the auction, and they stop once bidding activity ceases within the allocated period. The auctioneer decides the length of the extension.
