MAXIMUM BID: When you place your maximum bid, the current bid price doesn't automatically jump to your max bid. Your bid goes to the next highest increment and increases as other people bid against your bid. The computer will automatically bid up to your max in the increments specified. By placing any bids you have agreed by legal contract that your bid or maximum bid is what you are willing to pay for that specific lot(s) and may have to pay full bid or maximum bid amount of any bids placed. The buyer agrees and is responsible for every bid amount placed. The K and B Auction Company is a bid at your will auction, meaning you alone are responsible for your bids and actions.
BUYER'S PREMIUM: Unless a specific auction states otherwise, a 15% buyer's premium will be charged on all items and lots. Every bidder/buyer pays the same buyer's premium and should bid accordingly. For example, if you bid $100 on an item at the auction you will be charged $115 for the item on your auction invoice. Please take this into consideration when bidding.
