I paid for my items, now what?

At Woody Auction, we're able to pack and ship most auction items.  We package invoices in the order which they were paid.  Once your items have been packages and shipping is determined, we will send you a second invoice via LiveAuctioneers for the materials and shipping charges.  Alternatively, Woody Auction accepts credit card payments over the phone at 316-747-2694.

How much does it cost to ship my items?

Shipping is not included in the items invoice that you receive immediately following the sale of the last lot.

Our shipping is a combination of what we paid for the materials plus exactly what UPS charges us at our 24% discount, and then we round the total up to the next dollar. We do not charge a handling fee or personnel hours - there is no profit in our shipping service.  We also box more than one item together to save the bidder money.  Every box is different depending on the distance it is traveling, its weight, its size, and the value of the contents (fully insured for the amount paid).

Prior to the auction, we are happy to provide you with rough shipping estimates.

What are your bid increments?

For your convenience, here are Woody Auction's bidding increments:

      Bid                                  Increment
  $0 - $30                               $5
  $30 - $100                           $10

  $5,000 - $10,000                 $500
  $10,000 - $50,000               $1,000
  $50,000 and more              $2,500

Can I place an Absentee Bid?

Yes, but only for the in-person auctions, not the automated, online only auctions. As a convenience to our bidders who cannot attend a sale in person, or online through LiveAuctioneers, Woody Auction will execute written bids on your behalf for our in-person auction. Absentee bidders should complete the Absentee Bid Form and submit the written bid at least 24 hours in advance of the auction. Further, if Woody Auction receives written bids on a lot for identical amounts, and at the auction these are the highest bids on the lot, it will be sold to the person whose written bid was received first. Lots are bought for absentee bidders at the lowest possible price, which may be below the written bid price, subject to other bids. You may download our Absentee Bid Form and fax it to (316) 746-2145 or email it to info@woodyauction.com.

What is the difference between ABCG and BPCG?

We will describe an item as ABCG, American Brilliant Cut Glass, if we are certain it is American. However, if the item is from a maker or had been attributed to the European market (i.e. Val St Lambert, Stevens & Williams), we will call these items BPCG, Brilliant Period Cut Glass.

I cannot attend your auction in person. How do I register for the auction to bid online through LiveAuctioneers?

First, go to www.LiveAuctioneers.com/woody-auction-llc. Once you’re on that page, scroll down the list of our auctions until you find the one in which you want to bid. Next, click the blue ‘explore’ button. Then, on the right-hand side click the blue ‘register for auction’ button. At this point, you will be prompted to log in or create an account. Once you’ve created an account, we’ll receive a notification of your interest in bidding.

Woody Auction does not require its bidders to have a credit card on file with LiveAuctioneers.

Please call or email us to have your registration approved if you have not previously bid with us through LiveAuctioneers. Registrations should be completed and phone calls or emails received by Woody Auction at least 48 hours in advance of the auction in which you are interested in bidding. 

My invoice through LiveAuctioneers keeps going to my spam folder, what can I do?

Sometimes an invoice gets filtered as spam or junk. Please add auctions@liveauctioneers.com and noreply@liveauctioneers.com to your email address book and/or safe sender list, and it should resolve this issue going forward. 

Can the experts of Woody Auction give appraisals?
