Please be aware that due to the expected high volume of activity on our website, there may be a possibility of NETWORK LATENCY with the closing of bids on all lots. The closing of bids on lots with no activity will start from 21:00, the closing time. Where there is bidding activity on a particular lot within 5 minutes (300 seconds) prior to the lot’s closing time at 21:00, there will be a 5 minute (300 seconds) bidding extension on that lot starting from 21:00 the set closing time, and extended until only one bidder remains. These extensions will continue indefinitely until there is no more bidding activity on the lot for a period of 5 minutes (300 seconds) implying that there is no further interest.
