Am I bidding on the photo or the description of the item?
Only bid on the item description. Use the photos as a guide only. For demo purposes, equipment may be joined and photographed together.

Most items have no reserve. Due to financing requirements we must sometimes allow Sellers to place a minimum, confirmation, starting or proxy bid on an item. Usually Online-Only auction items start at $5.00 and sell regardless of price.

What if the lot has a quantity of more than one?
Check the item description. If it says "sold times the money" then it is being sold "bid price times the quantity". Check your final bid price before submitting your bid. For example, if a lot contains 5 boxes you must bid on all 5. If you bid $5 your bid will be multiplied by 5 to total $25.
