Auto-bidAs 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 ExtensionIf 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.

|Questions and Answers|
Q: Could there be 598K rather than 59K (9/23/20 6:00 PM)
A: Yes, the mileage reads 598947. Sorry about that, it is updated now. (9/23/20 6:05 PM)
Q: Did my university purchase new? If not how many miles were on it when purchased? How many miles are out on a CU sports bus in a year? Any known problems with this unit? Thank you for your time!!! Js (10/8/20 10:09 PM)
A: The title shows a purchase date of 2009, so not purchased new. However, the title also shows an odometer reading of 0 miles which likely just means that no reading was taken, not that it had no miles. We don't have an estimate of miles per year and we don't have any maintenance records available. The unit had its AC system rebuilt last year but it was not charged with refrigerant so the system does not blow cold at this time. (10/9/20 9:31 AM)
