Frequently Asked Questions


Before contacting Us please double check our Frequently Asked Questions 

Our registration process is extremely easy. You can register with Prime Auctions by clicking on the "Register to Bid" tab at the top of the home page. Once you register, you will receive your bidder ID and password via Email.

At the conclusion of every auction, our software will automatically charge all winning bidders credit cards. This step eliminates extra waiting time during pickup days and makes picking up your items easy

Every winning item will be charged with a 13% auction fee. (SALES TAX IS NOT INCLUDED)

We strongly encourage bidders to visit us on preview days and inspect each item personally before placing any bids. Both registered and non-registered users are allowed to come and to inspect any item.

Place a bid on the items you desire by putting your bid in the left hand bidding box. If you do not want to come back and re-bid every time someone else places a higher bid, then you may place your maximum bid in the right hand bidding box. We suggest that you bid the maximum amount that you're willing to pay for an item. Place your maximum bid in the right hand bidding box and our system will incrementally increase your bid up to your maximum bid.

Prime Auctions is not able to delete any bids that are placed. All bids are final, and non-retractable

Every bidder will receive an outbid notice via email. (Outbid notices will NOT be sent out in the last hour of the auction)

The first two items of every auction will end at the intervals of one minute. For example: if an auction is scheduled to end at 7:00PM, item #1 of that auction and item #2 will end at 7:01 followed by items #3 and #4 ending at 7:02. Every auction will end after all of the items have ended. If there are two bidders who are bidding for the same item within the last two minutes of an item's scheduled end time the items bidding will be extended for an additional two minutes.

Your bidder number will appear in the "High Bidder" column. All invoices will be sent out the day after the auction ends.

The $1 pending pre-authorization charge will not be posted on your account. This pre-authorization charge is used to verify your credit card. This charge will disappear after few days.

Please check your spam/junk folders. All invoices are automatically generated and sent the next day after each auction concludes You may request a duplicate invoice by contacting us: Please note that duplicate invoice requests must be made no later than 1 hour prior to scheduled pickup..

You may either bring a paper copy of your invoice or present that invoice on your mobile device.

Each scheduled pickup day and time is listed on the front page of each auction

A valid drivers license, and a “ paid in full” invoice is required in order to pick up your item(s).

If you require assistance, we will retrieve and help load your items.

Driver license numbers will be temporary recorded in order to prevent multiple people picking up the same item. Driver license numbers will be permanently removed from our system once all auctions items are picked up.

If you are not able to pick up on scheduled days, it is the winning bidders responsibility to send someone on their behalf with a valid driver’s license and a “paid in full” invoice. Items that are not picked up on the scheduled pickup day are subject to re-sale without refund on the next auction, unless the winning bidder contacts to arrange an alternative pickup.

We do not provide any shipping and handling services. In some cases we can arrange delivery of your item. Any delivery services are additional in cost. The cost of delivery is based on the delivery address. You must contact us for a delivery quote.
