Important Information for Bidders ….

  • Our auctions are ‘soft close’ which means that all bids made on an item during the last minute, will force an item to stay open for an additional 3 minutes. This continues until all bidding has ceased. A soft close prevents sniping (the act of sneaking in the last bid before a lot closes).
  • Most of our auction lots close in 10 second intervals. In other words, if an auction has 100 lots and is scheduled to close at 9:00 p.m., the first lot will close at 9:00 pm (soft close in effect) while the 100th lot will close at approx. 9:16 p.m. (soft close in effect).
  • The auction software allows for maximum bids, meaning you only pay one bid more than the next highest bid, up to your maximum bid. The software system will play out the bids as you would at a live auction and only uses the funds required to beat out the under-bidder at the prescribed bid increment. For example, if the current winning bid is $5.00, you can enter a bid of $20.00 and the system will show you as winning at $7.50, the next bidding increment. If someone else bids $10.00, the system will show you as winning at $12.50. This process continues until your maximum bid is reached (if there are counter bids to that amount).
  • Auction details, including preview and pick up times & location are posted in each auction under the tab titled ‘Auction Details’. Please be sure to review this information prior to bidding. All purchases must be picked up at the scheduled time or they will be considered abandoned. Please note: We do not ship and storage fees will apply to those who don’t pick up.
  • Further information regarding bid increments, payments, terms and conditions can be found within each auction under ‘Auction Details’.

We recently acquired David Moore & Associates to assist us in the auction of household items and real estate of a 100 acre farm in Simcoe County. It was apparent on our first meeting that David was the person we wanted. He was straight forward and honest – a team player who is always willing to share his vast knowledge and experience. As the word spread regarding who we had acquired, the first reply back was “He’s the best” and we definitely agree. We have nothing but good things to say about David.

The professional attitude and service of David Moore & Associates are very impressive. David Moore distinguishes himself from others in the business with his high ethical standards and caring approach. I highly recommend David Moore & Associates for any of your downsizing or estate selling needs.

When we decided to wind up our business, we hired David Moore. He had experience in golf course, real estate and other areas. He came with excellent references. He surpassed our expectations. I recommend David and his team very highly.

I had to get a 4,600 sq ft house cleared out in a hurry. David and his team are the most professional persons that I have ever dealt with. They were compassionate and understanding about the duty that I was dealing with. They know their business and even taught me a thing or two.

I would recommend to all my family and friends to have an online auction with David Moore & Associates (Rapid-Sell) because it is the way of the future and the best way to go.  Thank you for everything.

Believe me, this company is truly worth every penny they earn because they earn it with integrity and dedication…old fashioned work ethic and compassion packaged in a modern tech service.  What more could you ask?

David’s team worked with my brother & I getting everything in the house sorted and photographed. We watched in awe as people bid on items online. It was fascinating, especially during the last hour of the sale. The entire process from start to finish was a positive experience for our family (even though it was a difficult job to sell family articles). I highly recommend the online auction to anyone and definitely recommend David and his team of professionals.
There are no words Dave, literally, that can express our thanks and appreciation for you and your wonderful organization for the auction and sale of my Dad & Mom’s estate.  We have the greatest respect and admiration for your company.  For us, it was not about the money, rather, we needed help. You helped us. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
