You are all set! You may now begin bidding on any current or future auction with that one bidder number.
If for some reason, you do not receive your bidder number within a few minutes of registering, please call GRS Auctions at 618.939.4010 for assistance.
Entering The Auction
Our current auctions can be viewed by clicking the “Online Auctions” link on the left.
Just scroll down to the auction you are interested in, and click on the "Online Bidding" button.
Review the “Auction Details” section then click on “All Items” and you are now ready for action.
Bidding On Items
After you have entered "Your Bid" and the "Your Maximum" amounts, then scroll down to the bottom of the page. Enter your bidder # and password and then click "Submit Bids". That's it! You've just bidded on an item...good luck!
If you're bidding on multiple items and want to check the status of each individual bid, click on the "review bids" button to get a snapshot of your bidding activity. If at any time you have problems logging in or placing a bid, please call GRS Auctions at 618.939.4010.
You will receive email updates if and when you have been outbid, up until the last day of the auction. Please keep in mind that a lot of bidding takes place on the last day and especially within the last 30 minutes.
If you do NOT have computer access during that time, it is a good idea to enter your maximum bid. Our software is “intelligent” and will automatically bid for you - even if you're not online!
Be advised that our online auctions have 3 items per minute Staggered Endings. This feature will close the bidding on intervals. (Example: If an Auction ends at 4pm and closes three items per minute at 4pm, items 1-3 will be final; at 4:01pm items 4-6 will be final and so forth). If a bid is placed on an item within 6 minutes of closing the auction for that item will extend for an additional 6 minutes indefinitly until no more bids are placed. This keeps things fair for everyone. The software will not tolerate end of auction “Bid Sniping”.
If you win an item from GRS Auctions you will receive an email with your invoice shortly after the last item in the auction is completed. Please check your emails. If you encounter any problems, please call us at 618.939.4010
End of auction is a hectic time and our phone lines may be busy right after an auction. Please be patient and leave a detailed message with your name and bidder number #.
If you have a tax-exempt form, we require a copy for our files prior to the auctions completion or our system will generate an invoice with tax included. You can email us a copy of your tax exempt form at any time. Our primary email address is: Info@grsauctions.com
