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.

To have this restriction removed, a $1,000 refundable deposit in the form of a Certified Cashier's Check or U.S. Postal Money Order must be mailed to GovDeals, Inc., 100 Capitol Commerce Boulevard, Suite 110, Montgomery, AL 36117.

For further information and deposit details please contact Customer Service.


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 advise of the engine type and size and how many speeds the transmission is? Is the frame rusty like the front cap is? (11/30/21 3:19 PM)
A: The engine is believed to be a 345 hp International. The transmission is 4 speed with a 2 speed rear end. As for the question about rust, that is a subjective question that is best answered through personal inspection on the date and time mentioned in the post. (12/2/21 9:24 AM)
Q: I have a few questions also if you dont mind. I may have overlooked the already posted answer and do not mean to be redundant. 1)Can you tell me which Holmes bed (model) that it has? 2) Can you tell me if the vehicle and its bed are operable? 3) I understand that the rust question may be subjective but logistics do not allow many of us to do a physical inspection. If I may rephrase the rust question: Does the frame appear that a little spray paint might cover some topical rust or , like the fenders, does it show serious rust like bolts and brackets no longer having their original shape; deep pitting;etc. (1/6/22 9:52 AM)
A: The bed operates to the best of our knowledge. We do know know the model of the bed. Again, questions regarding rust and or its severity, are subjective and best answered through personal inspection. (1/7/22 7:46 AM)
Q: Hi. My question is about the title and the buyer has to be present. Well I live in Ga. and would not make that drive up there just to get the title nor would I need the title as the state of Ga. does not require a title for any vehicle older then 1986 and I would just pay a shipping company to pick up and deliver the truck. With that asked should I waste my time bidding on this truck or just let it go. Thanks... (1/7/22 10:39 PM)
A: As stated in the post, "As this requires a title transfer, the buyer is REQUIRED to be present at time of pickup and there will be no exceptions to this." (1/10/22 1:55 PM)
