Please complete an
Item Description form for each item to be auctioned.
There will be a supply of these forms at the auction, but we suggest you print out the forms
(see links below) and fill them out before you arrive at the auction.
Use this form to provide information to potential buyers and to the auctioneer so that you can get the
best price for your item -- a brief description of what the item is;
whether it's working 100%; other items included, such as owners manual;
and other significant information that may increase the value of the item.
On the Item Description form you
may indicate a minimum acceptable bid or "reserve" for any auction item.
While the auctioneer may initiate bidding at a price lower than your reserve,
the final bid must be equal to or higher than your reserve for
the item to be sold,
unless you specifically agree to accept the lower price.
You do not have to specify a reserve price if
you would be happy to accept the best price the auctioneer can get.
