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.

Open auction where bidding starts at a fixed amount and increases by a minimum bid increment (or higher) by different bidders until the auction end time is reached. Once the auction has closed and a high bidder has been identified, the seller reserves the right to approve or reject the final offer.

Questions and AnswersQuestions and Answers
Q: Can you share the screen size of these iPads? If I would be the winning bid and sent you a prepaid UPS label for shipping would you be able to mail them to me? (4/8/22 4:45 AM)
A: As described in the auction page: "Property may be removed by appointment only and appointments must be made at least 24 hours in advance.". We will not ship the iPads. If you are the winning bid and want to have them shipped to you, you should contact a local shipping company, and arrange for them to pick up the iPads and ship them to you. (4/11/22 10:31 AM)
Q: Hello, Are they unlocked? Thanks (4/8/22 7:50 PM)
A: Yes, all iPads are unlocked. (4/11/22 10:29 AM)
Q: Is it unlocked? (4/10/22 10:24 PM)
A: Yes, all iPads are unlocked. (4/11/22 10:29 AM)
Q: Can you share the size of the screen for the iPads? (4/11/22 11:04 AM)
A: 1 is an A1474 model, the rest are A1403 models. Both models have a 9.7" screen. (4/11/22 11:14 AM)
Q: what is the history of those ipads? seized? (4/17/22 8:28 AM)
A: These were used for department business. However, they are no longer needed. (4/18/22 11:33 AM)
Q: Are these wifi + cellular? If yes, are they unlocked to be used in any other network? (4/24/22 3:04 PM)
A: All iPads are WiFi+Cellular. After checking with Verizon, 5 iPads are definitely unlocked. The other 8 iPads are old enough that Verizon could not tell us 100% if they were unlocked or not. However, Verizon said that they should be unlocked as they were active for more than 60 days on Verizon's network. We looked into seeing if the 8 iPads could be activated on AT&T, and AT&T says they are incompatible. We are not sure whether that is because they are locked, or they are old enough that AT&T not longer supports them. (4/25/22 10:50 AM)
Q: How old are these? (5/31/22 1:00 PM)
A: From some Googling, the A1474 model was first released in November 2012 and the A1403 model was first released in March 2012. (5/31/22 1:04 PM)
Q: Do you offer shipping or any third party shipper that you work with? (6/21/22 4:52 PM)
A: No. The auction winner can designate a third party to pick up the items. However, the items being sold are not already packed for shipment. The third party designee would need to pick the items up as-is, and pack and ship them offsite if they need to be shipped. (6/21/22 5:20 PM)
