Auction FAQ

What rules and requirements are there for auction buyers?

When you bid on or buy an item, you have read and acknowledged the rules and Auction Policy we have put in place for our community below.

What kind of items are listed for auction?

Our Sewer Inspection Cameras are very popular auction listings, however, we have auctions on all product lines. Through this feature, you can purchase refurbished, open-boxed, clearance, or discounted Forbest Products. Auction items are sold as-is, meaning without customizations to the existing system. 

How does the Reserve price work?

The reserve price represents the hidden minimum value that a seller is willing to let their lot go for. If the auction ends and the reserve price has not been met, the lot will not be auctioned off.

How does the Buyout price work?

If accepted by a bidder, the buyout price is the price that immediately ends the auction and awards the item to the bidder.

How do automatic bids work?

Our system will automatically place new bids on your behalf each time you are outbid by setting up an automatic bid. All you need to do is enter the maximum price you are willing to bid for an item. Our system will then keep on bidding for you, by the smallest possible increase each time, until your maximum price is reached.
