Did you know?? "AHA"

Marbles and Auctioneers

People often ask what it takes to become a champion auctioneer. I have to remind them that long before you become a champion, you must first become an auctioneer, and learn the chant.  Right on cue, people will ask "Rich...

We're in a different type of business. Most of the time, we...

A little lesson in Minimum Bids

A little lesson in minimum bids....We had a call from a bidder today who was upset because we wouldn't accept a $1 bid on a storage unit. In fact, he insisted that we were required to accept his bid. When he was informed otherwise, he insisted that we were required to post a notice that there is a reserve bid. No, we were not. Here's why:By law, specifically the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC), all...
