Online Bidding

Online auctions begin and end at a pre-determined time and date.  If bidding occurs within the last five minutes, the auction will be extended for another five minutes until bidding has ended.  Your bid must be equal to or above the current high bid. Standard terms and conditions apply for these sales.  When placing a bid you will be asked to "Confirm" or "Cancel".  Once a bid is confirmed you are entering a legal binding contract with Gardner's and if successful will pay purchase price plus premium and applicable taxes.  Online bids cannot be cancelled once confirmed.  

Bidding increments are as follows:

Bid Price          Increments

$0.00-$50.00     $5.00

$51.00-$200      $10.00

$201-$500         $25.00

$1001 and up    $100.00
