    • Do you have a "cut" or "split" bid policy?

    Yes. Cutting or splitting a bid refers to a situation where the bidder chooses to bid half of the current increment. We do not accept cut bids on hammer prices under $500.  During Presale bidding a bidder can enter half increment bids above $500 multiple times.  Once the lot goes live, a bidder can only do this once per lot. If the bidder is subsequently outbid, he or she may rejoin the bidding, but can only do so in full increments until the lot is sold.
