Grab a seat in the auction audience area, enjoy a refreshment from our food cart and get your bidder number ready!
Wait for your previewed item to be auctioned or select items as they come up. When you want to bid on an item being offered, listen to the Auctioneer and agree with the amount bid by holding up your bidder number. The auctioneer will motion that yours is the current bid amount and will ask to see if there is a higher bid. If there are higher bids, the auctioneer will motion to those bidders and say the price. You may continue to bid until you win the item, or you may decide to let the item go to another bidder. The last bid will be announced and the Auctioneer will say "Sold for $____ to Bidder number____"
It's that easy!
The Auction is recorded, so that any discrepancies can be resolved, but if you have any questions at the time you purchase an item, contact a River City Furniture Auction Staff representative immediately.

Like most auction houses, we add a 10% Buyer's Premium to your sale total. If you bid and win a $100.00 item, your total cost will be $110.00 plus sales tax. What is a Buyer's Premium? A standard amount added to help defray the cost of the Auction, so we can continue to offer great prices on Auction merchandise.
Customers not settling their accounts Friday night, will forfeit their deposit and lose their merchandise.
