Declined Credit Card Procedure: If the credit card on file is declined for any reason, a Parrott Auction crew member/representative will reach out to settle the outstanding invoice. If the buyer fails to pay the said invoice, the buyer(s) will be permanently banned until the $25 reinstatement fee is paid.

Soft Close / Staggered Closing: This is a soft close auction meaning two key points: 1) all items feature a stagger of 10 seconds between each lot ending. 6 items will close each minute 2) If an item is bid on within the last 2 minutes of the auction, the lot will automatically get extended for an additional 2 minutes. Additional time will continue to be added until no additional bids have been placed.
Absentee Bidder Form: Another bidding option is to attend one of the scheduled preview dates and complete our absentee bidder form, name, address, contact information, max bid you’re willing to place, along with credit card information will be required when completing this form. Please Note: There will be a $25 dollar charge for this service. This $25 fee covers the labor to fill out the absentee bidder form, register bidder, place bids, plus call you after the auction is over. Also, this is MAX bid only, we will not call you to update you on winning/outbid status. If you change your max bid, a second form and a second $25 charge will be required immediately. This is to discourage people from making 6 updated max bids via phone immediately prior to auction close.

Please Use the Online Scheduler! This increases the efficiency of auction load out and decreases the amount of time you'll spend loading your items!
Online Schedule Instructions: The morning after the auction closes we will send a load out scheduler to all the winning bidders. This scheduler system will supply any remaining time slots to the winning bidders. Scheduling can completed by text message and email both to allow for ultimate flexible to you, the buyer. If you do not choose a time slot, load outs will be on a first come, first served basis and you will be asked to wait until an auction crew member can assist the load out process.

Last Chance Grace Period / Fee: If items are not picked up during that time frame, immediately following the last pick-up day, we will automatically charge your credit card on file a cost of $25. This $25 fee covers the additional cost of labor, scheduling conflicts, and fuel incurred to met during the 3 day “last chance” window.
This fee will not be waived for any reason.
This non-pickup policy strictly is enforced as non-removal of items is becoming an issue.
If you are unavailable during this scheduled pickup, a family member, close friend, or co-worker can pick the items up for you if we are notified prior.
For all other items that remain after 7 business days from a scheduled pickup that are not claimed or have other arrangements made, the buyer will forfeit the rights to said items and will revert back to the seller / auction company.
Full Service, In-House Shipping: If shipping is desired on smaller items, please make a note when registering as we can immediately sort items for shipment at the close of the auction to expedite the shipping process.
All shipping costs, tracking, insurance, and signature on delivery will be paid for by the buyer. The buyer will also be charged a small handling fee of $8 per shipment, unless the items require a pallet. If pallet is required, buyer is responsible for all costs associated with palletizing the item.
We utilize the “Shipping Saint” Program to streamline our shipping process.
Once you have paid the invoice for the item, a second invoice from Shipping Saint will include your actual shipping invoice. Once this shipping invoice has been paid, your item will be shipped. During these times of high shipments, extended shipping times may occur, we try to have all items shipped within 5 business days of auction close, however, we do reserve the right for up to 15 business days of auction close.
