Buying options at GIQ

Buy it now ;

It says it all; you can shop and buy now before the auction starts. Sign up, log on and you can be the owner today.  This option ends once the auction starts. Auction fees and conditions apply the same way they would on auction day. Perfect if you need equipment fast or have found a screaming deal!


Unreserved lot ;

This item has been listed with no reserve price; it will sell on auction day to the highest bidder. This option makes sure the lot sells for both bidder and buyer.


On approval ;

An increasingly popular way to buy and sell at an auction. created an improvement on this model buy having the seller participate in real time in the auction. An ‘’on approval sale’’ will have a set reserve price, in the event it was not reached once the auction is over, the seller will have the option to approve the winning bid in near real time.  This option removes the unwanted owner ‘’buybacks’’, yet still gives the bidders a chance to buy below reserve.



Please read carefully all our conditions posted with every lot online.  Here are some of the fee's you will be charged.;
