What is a proxy bid and what is a static bid?:
There are two ways to bid at our online auctions:
- Static bid: A static bid is the next bid you make on a lot. You then have to follow the lots yourself.
- Proxy bid: If you make a proxy bid, you set a maximum bid in the system, the system will then automatically bid for you and bring out the lowest possible accepted bid to the entered bid. If the bids do not reach your proxy offer, you buy at a lower price than entered. Only when another bidder makes a higher bid than your proxy bid, you are no longer the highest bidder. This proxy bid is secret and can not be seen by other bidders.
Can I undo my bid?:
It is not possible to undo your bid. A once placed bid is binding. Before the bid is placed permanently, you first see a control screen, in which the total of your bid becomes visible.
How can I correctly follow my bids?:
If you click on the “follow lots” button, you will get an overview of all the lots you have bid on and whether you are still the highest bidder. It is also possible to include lots that you have not yet bid on in this list. To do this, click on the text of the relevant lot: "Keep track of these lots" through your account.
Can I visit the lots on another day?:
This is not possible. The correct viewing day can be found on the website at the relevant auction.
A starting price is a prize on which° you cannot bid lower. Usually these amounts are only a fraction of the valued value. If no bid is made, this lot will often be auctioned again at a lower starting price later on.
In principle, we do not apply minimum prices unless otherwise indicated.
The closing time is stated for each lot. If another bid is made for this lot 5 minutes before the closing of a lot, the auction for this lot will be extended by 5 minutes. Place your lots in ‘follow lots’ or refresh your page regularly to ensure that no new offer has been made.
After the auction, you will receive a buyer’s email stating an overview of the lots bought and the total amount to be paid. Print this email, you will need this later at the collection.
You must complete the payment order no later than the day after the auction. Payment can only be made on our account numbers (see contact details).
Contact information about "I&O Auctions" you will find here.
If you do not hear from us anymore, the payment is in order.
How does pick up work?:
When collecting your purchased items, you must hand in your buyer’s mail at the reception desk. The original invoice will be handed over to you on the spot. Our employees will guide you to your lots. Our employees do not help with loading or disassembling. Advice°: Bring sufficient material yourself. pick-up carts, tools, etc.
If you can not come to the collection yourself, you can always give a proxy to friends or family. In the worst case you will have to call on a transport or removal company.
I&O Auctions will always invoke the sales conditions in case of late collection.
I&O Auctions is only present during the release.
It is impossible to meet on other dates and/or hours.

Are there always auction costs?:
No. Sometimes there are auctions without auction costs. This is always clearly indicated with the bid data.
Can I buy VAT freely if my company is registered abroad?:
Yes, only if your company is based in a Member State of the European Union, other than Belgium. For this you must have a valid VAT number and hand over a transport declaration or CMR. These forms show that the goods are transported to the country of destination. If your company is registered outside the EU, you must pay the VAT. This will be refunded to you upon receipt of the export documents cleared by Customs.
Can I bid by mail?:
You can not bid by e-mail.
Can I bid on multiple lots at once?:
This is not possible, you have to make a bid separately on each lot. You can add the lots to your "favorite lots". Via the option “follow lots” you can check exactly which lots you have the highest bid, are outbid, or are interested. Sometimes there are combination lots, read combination lots
This is a combination of different lots, indicated by the symbol C. You can only bid when all individual lots are closed. The opening bid is the sum of: the highest bids, individual lots plus the sum of the opening bids of the lots that were not offered. If bidding on the combination, the lots are allocated to the highest bidder on that combination and not to the highest bidders per lot, these bidders per lot have been outbid by a combination bidder.
Award by the client. Subject to award:
With the bidding data, you can find on the site whether the awarding of lots is still done by the client after the auction has been closed.
Usually, the highest bidder will be notified the day after the auction whether his bid has been awarded or not.
