Bidding At Mighty Thrifty Auction House

When you attend one of our auctions and are planning on bidding, you must register first. Click here to download the (REGISTRATION FORM) --PDF FORMAT-- Registration requires your full contact information. This includes government issued personal identification and your signature agreeing to the Conditions of Sale, which states that all lots are sold "AS IS WHERE AS". Please make sure to inspect all items thoroughly before bidding. Once the auction starts, the auctioneer will clearly announce the lot number and bid increments as the bidding begins and proceeds. The lot numbers begin with number one and continue chronologically until all lots in the auction have been offered.

To submit a bid, raise your BIDDER NUMBER facing the auctioneer when the lots number you wish to bid on are called. The auctioneer will give fair warning when the bidding is about to end. The lot will be sold to the final bidder. The auctioneer will announce the hammer price and BIDDER NUMBER twice when the lot has been sold. Please remember that your bid is a contract. Place a bid only if you are serious about buying the item. If you are the successful bidder, you have entered into a legally binding contract to purchase the property.

When you have finished bidding on the lots you are interested in, please go to our checkout area, examine your invoice and make full payment and arrange for pick-up or removal of all items.


Public Gallery Preview

We recommend you preview all of the Items before the auction starts which is free to everyone. Preview generally begins two to three hours prior to the auction.


Item Conditions

We want all of our clients to be fully satisfied with their purchases, so we encourage potential bidders to gather as much information as possible regarding a lot's condition and provenance, before placing a bid. Since all property is sold "AS IS WHERE AS", it is very important to obtain as much information as possible.


Prospective buyers are strongly advised to personally examine any property in which they are interested before the auction takes place. All lots are sold "AS IS WHERE AS" and without recourse, and neither Mighty Thrifty nor its consignor(s) make any warranties or representations, express or implied, with respect to such items being sold.


Buyer's Premium and Sales Tax

There is a 13% buyer's premium added to each lot with a 3% discount for cash.  Mighty Thrifty accepts Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express. The buyer's premium is added to the final hammer price.

A 7% Florida sales tax is added to the hammer price and buyer's premium for anything purchased in the State of Florida.


Absentee Bidding

You may register Absentee Bids up to 48 hours prior to the auction. Please request an Absentee Bid registration form by calling (941) 650-3810 or Click here to download the (ABSENTEE BID FORM). --PDF FORMAT-- The bid you leave is the highest price you are willing to pay exclusive of buyer's premium and applicable tax. The “back-up bid” is the highest price you are willing to pay in the event of a tie. Please remember that in the event of a tie between two absentee bids, the bidder who submitted his or her Absentee Bid form first will win the lot.  Absentee bids are always confidential and bids are executed at the lowest price possible according to reserves and competitive bids. All of our auctions are conducted live at Mighty Thrifty Auction House by Florida Licensed Auctioneers.


Prompt Removal of Property

It is the buyer's responsibility to pay and arrange for removal of Items.  All merchandise must be paid for and removed from the premises within 2 business days after the auction. Mighty Thrifty is a small auction house and we do not have room to store items from past auctions on our premises.

If items are left at Mighty Thrifty Auction house longer than (2) business days after the auction date, the property will be transferred to Mighty Thrifty storage facility and the purchaser agrees to pay a storage charge of Twenty Five Dollars ($25.00) for each day the items are not claimed up to 5 business days.  After the 5th day the Items will then become property of Mighty Thrifty.
