How do reserves work?
A reserve is the minimum price you are willing to sell your Lot for.
We will work with you to set a market correct reserve. Realistic reserves increase the overall buyer experience which can increases bidding activity. Reserve values are not shown to bidders, we do reveal when reserves are nearly reached or have been met during the live auction.
Should I reveal my reserve price?
When you are a seller, the reserve price you set is private and confidential and should remain that way. Revealing your reserve price before an auction ends can negatively limit your Lot from reaching its bidding success.
Never reveal your price especially in public comments. If asked, simply refer the bidder to the auction and prompt them to bid a price that they are comfortable with.
Can I edit my listing once the auction goes live?
Generally, edits are not permitted once an auction has gone live. If you feel an edit is necessary, please contact us with your request at email@example.com.
You can also leave comments and can answer bidder questions on the vehicle description page during the auction to help improve the clarity of your listing.
Can I make a deal outside of the auction?
Lots listed on Koskin Import Auctions are for sale exclusively through the auction site and subject to contract. We incur considerable expense to advertise listings, maintain & operate the platform, and support an administrative staff. As such, if a buyer or seller subverts the auction by attempting to make a deal outside of the auction, you will be banned from the site.
If a buyer attempts this tactic with a seller, the best approach is to simply refer the buyer back to the auction and instruct them to place a bid that they are comfortable with.
Can I relist my Lot if it doesn't sell?
Typically, we do not re-list the same Lot if it does not sell. In the case of a non-sale, you can list it on our Classified section.
Can I cancel my auction listing?
We do not allow the cancellation of listings once the auction goes live. Only in extreme cases where a Lot has suffered a significant change such as theft or damage will there be consideration. Please notify us if such an event occurs.
