frequently asked questions
Do I have to register for every auction?
Yes, you must register individually for each auction. Terms are specific and subject to change from auction to auction so the terms must be agreed upon for that auction before any bidding can take place on behalf of the buyer.
Can I place bids on behalf of another buyer?
Bids placed on a DPA Auction are the sole responsibility of the person placing the bids and the responsibility of payment will be on said person. Bidding on a DPA Auction is NOT contingent upon financing or collection of funds from a second party.
Is there a bidding extension?
DPA Auctions has a 60 second bidding extension on all items. Once an item is in our Live Auction Board, you will see the dynamic clock. Any bids placed within the last 60 seconds before the closing of an item will extend the bidding time, for all bidders, for an additional 60 seconds. This will continue until there is a 60 second period where no more bids are placed.
How does placing a MAXIMUM BID work?
If you place a “Maximum Bid”, you authorize the bidding system to bid on your behalf up to your submitted max bid amount. For Example; if the current bid is $500.00 and you place a “Maximum Bid” of $1,000.00, the system will automatically place your bid at $525.00 (assuming their isn’t already another maximum bid in place), and will continue this pattern up to your submitted bid amount.
How long do I have to pay for my items?
Successful bidders must contact Del Peterson & Associates within 24 hours after receiving their invoice to confirm their method of payment
Payment(s) must be received within 7 days after the conclusion of the auction by wire transfer, company/personal check or credit card (additional 2.75% fee)
Any payment received after 7 days and before 14 days after the auction will be assessed a 3% late fee on the total balance of their invoice
Payments not received within 14 days after the conclusion of the auction will result in the buyer losing all right, title and interest to the property, including any/all moneys and DPA Auctions will suspend your bidding account.
How long do I have to pick up or remove my items?
All items must be removed within 3 weeks after the conclusion of the auction, unless otherwise stated in the terms of the auction or the description of the item. Removal and/or transportation of equipment shall be at the expense, liability and risk of the buyer. Any Items not removed within the designated time period will be considered abandoned and the purchaser will lose all right, title and interest to the property, including any and all moneys from the buyer
