As a bidder, you don't have to constantly watch auctions and worry about being outbid! All GovDeals Internet Auctions feature an auto-bid. In the bid box on the auction view page, enter the HIGHEST dollar amount that you are willing to pay, and the GovDeals bidding system will bid on your behalf by placing a bid at the current LOWEST minimum bid. If another bidder outbids your LOWEST minimum bid, the system will automatically place another bid, once again making you the current high bidder, until your "top dollar" number is reached. The auto-bidding system will continue to place the LOWEST minimum bids on your behalf until you are the winner of the auction or another bidder bids higher than your auto-bid. Auto-bids are completely private and are never displayed to other bidders. In the event of a reserve price auction, your auto-bid will immediately bid up to the amount of the reserve OR to the max amount of your auto-bid if the reserve price is in excess of your auto-bid.


Bid Extension

If a bid is placed during the final 3 minutes of an auction, the auction's current end time will automatically extend for additional 3 minutes. This will continue until no bids are placed during the last three minutes.

Since most bidding occurs during the final minutes of an auction, this allows all bidders a sufficient amount of time to continue bidding.

Questions and AnswersQuestions and Answers
Q: is it towable as is or would it need to be put on a trailer until repairs completed? (8/4/22 6:23 PM)

Q: How is the back door configured? [usually 2 swinging doors or one dropdown that serves as a loading ramp] , and rear pictures? Any under side rust? what year model? Title included? (8/12/22 12:31 AM)
A: The doors swing open. I had bids on fully restoring them and there was no mention of under side rust. I would reinforce the plywood flooring which i in my recommendations in the description.
