1. Bids are made in competition with other bidders bidding, on an alternating basis, in increments set by the auctioneer, as though the Bidder is present and the Bidder's purchase will be obtained at the lowest bid possible. In the event that the Bidder wishes to give Mack Auction Company permission to break a tied bid, the Bidder shall indicate by adding a (+) sign beside the bid price. In the event of a tie, this will authorize Mack Auction Company to increase the Bidder's bid by one increment. The Bidder understands that the item bid on will be sold to the highest bidder.

  2. Proxy Bids are confidential prior to the Lot being sold and bidding will not commence with the highest Proxy Bid and a Proxy Bid is not considered the highest bid unless it has been reached by the alternating incremental basis set out in paragraph 1.

  3. It is the Bidder's responsibility to arrange for the inspection of the item bid on prior to the auction sale.
