Welcome to Auction Surplus Tucson! We are a local company, working hard to bring you great deals on great stuff. We have everything from bedding to golf clubs to dog crates to toys and seasonal goods. Check out our ongoing auctions, and watch for new items coming soon!
There are 3 ways to bid:
1. Click the green "Bid" button. This will increase the current bid based on the next bid increment. Please note that if another bidder has entered a Max Bid on this item, you will not be the highest bidder unless you surpass their max bid.
2. Save a Max Bid amount. A Max Bid means the computer will bid for you up until your maximum bid amount is reached or exceeded. You can save a Max Bid for the maximum amount you are willing to pay for that item. IMPORTANT - to save a Max Bid, type the amount and THEN click the Max Bid button. You can increase or decrease your Max Bid by typing a new amount and THEN clicking on Max Bid, as long as your current Max Bid has not been reached or surpassed.
3. Enter a bid larger than the next bid increment. You can enter any amount to bid on an item by entering the dollar amount and clicking on the Bid button. PLEASE NOTE: if you enter an amount and click the Bid button, that amount will become the current bid. For example, if the current bid is $2.00 and you enter $50.00 and click the Bid button, you will have bid $50.00 on that item, NOT a max bid. You will have raised the bid from $2.00 to $50.00 and the next bid will be $55.00 according to the bid increment chart.
4. IF YOU HIT THE ENTER BUTTON ON YOUR KEYBOARD, THE BID WILL BE TREATED AS A REGULAR BID AND BECOME THE CURRENT BID. If you want to place a Max Bid/Proxy Bid, you MUST click the Max Bid button.
Auction Surplus Tucson is a secondary marketplace and it is not the right fit for everyone; there are amazing deals here, but there is also risk. Items may be overstocks or returns, new or used, perfect or broken. We share what we know about each item in pictures, titles or descriptions but we don't always know, don't test most items, and don't accept returns, exchanges or offer refunds. If you have not previewed an item (physically inspected it in person) and must make an assumption about that item before bidding, assume it is broken unless the description states otherwise. Effective bidders get great deals, and many make great money reselling what they buy here, but it takes time to become an effective bidder. Please, bid with care.
We use bid extensions for last minute bidding. What does this mean for you? It means that if you place a bid within the last 2 minutes of an auction, 2 minutes will be added to the remaining time for that item. We do this to prevent last minute bidders from coming in and scooping up all the items you've been watching and bidding on.
Any stock photos used (typically pictures with a solid white or "picture perfect" background) are for display/demonstration purposes only. This is what the item would look like in perfect condition. Be sure you look at all posted photos and read descriptions, and come down and preview, before bidding.
We offer (and encourage!) a preview (physical inspection of any item) every day we are open, which is typically weekdays, from 10-3. If you have questions about an item, the best way to get answers is to come and take a peek.
All items are sold as-is, which means all sales are final unless specifically noted otherwise.
