Inspect items of interest

Everything sells “as is, where is.” We recommend that you, or your representative, visit the auction site to inspect items of interest before auction day. Sale sites are opened up to buyers the day before the auction. If you are unable to make the general preview, contact us at (513) 738-3311 to determine if a private inspection can be scheduled.


Read the terms of sale

Each auction has its own particular timeline and terms of sale. Make sure you familiarize yourself ahead of time by reviewing details available in our list of upcoming auctions.

Have a plan for equipment removal

Removal is the responsibility of the buyer, and must be conducted in accordance with each auction’s timeline and terms of sale.

Our employees are on site to supervise equipment removal, but they do not perform packing/crating, shipping, or rigging services.
A list of independent rigging services is provided for each upcoming auction. This list is not an endorsement, but rather, provided for your convenience.
Buyers or riggers using powered vehicles to move items must have a certificate of insurance on file with us in the amount of $1 million. This can be handled by mail, fax, or in person.
Myron Bowling Auctioneers and the auction site
must be named as additional insured.

       Please remember:

  • No item may be removed until the last item has been sold.
  • All items must be removed by the posted date or be subject to storage charges and other fees.


What is the buyer’s premium?

The buyer’s premium is a small fee added to the winning bid for each item that goes directly to the auction house to cover sale costs.
Check the auction event details to determine the fee for each sale. 


What is a bank letter of guarantee?

Company checks must be submitted with a bank letter guaranteeing payment.
Bank letters should meet the following requirements:

  • The letter must be on official bank letterhead, signed by a bank representative.
  • The bank must state that it irrevocably guarantees the payment of your check. Credit limits or balances will not be accepted as a guarantee.
  • The letter must include the name of the individual or company for whom the guarantee is being made, and the check or wire transfer should match this number.
  • The letter should contain the account number on which the check or wire transfer is to be drawn, and the check or wire transfer should match this same account number.
  • The letter should include an end date after which the letter of guarantee will expire (at least seven days from auction).
  • The letter must contain a maximum amount for which the bank will guarantee. The check must not be written for more than is guaranteed by the bank.

Please review a sample bank letter of guarantee and be sure the one you present meets the same standards.


Can I place a proxy bid?

Yes. If you are not available to bid at the time of the auction, you may place a pre-bid on our online bidding platform.
We will bid this amount for you at the auction.


How are auction items scheduled?

Auction catalogs, available on this website, list by number all items that are to be sold and the order in which the sale will occur.
We cannot predict selling times for specific items, though we do average approximately 100 lots per hour.
Occasionally, lots may be grouped together in one bid. This, of course, changes the average lots per hour.


Am I responsible for sales tax?

In most states and municipalities, Myron Bowling Auctioneers is required to charge sales tax.
In cases of an exemption for resale or manufacturing purposes, please email us for the appropriate tax-exemption form.  


What is your policy regarding refunds and/or adjustments?

No refunds or adjustments will be made once items have been removed from the property.
All refunds or adjustments are at the discretion of the auction company.
Small items left longer than 24 hours are not subject to refunds.


Is security provided?

Myron Bowling Auctioneers provides security for the entire removal period. However, we will guard small items for only the initial 24 hours.
All claims must be made on site and reported to a representative of Myron Bowling Auctioneers.
