How to Bid
Weekly Sealed Bid Auction
National Liquidators prides itself on our weekly sealed bid auction platform. Bidding closes every Monday at 4:00 p.m. (ET). Offers may be submitted in one of two ways:
1. Online by clicking the orange Submit an Offer button within the listing.
2. Filling out the Official Offer Form, and emailing the form directly to your broker or to firstname.lastname@example.org.
All offers can be made subject to survey, inspection or sea trial at the buyer’s expense. Please make sure this is indicated on the Official Offer Form when submitted. All offers will be turned over to the sellers to accept, reject or counter. Once accepted, the buyer shall tender a 10% refundable deposit, and schedule their required inspection and/or surveys. Closing shall occur no later than 7 days past acceptance of the offer.
Online Live Auction
Our Live Online Auction was developed to meet the growing demands for an efficient process of liquidating marine assets. Each vessel listed in our live auction has a specific set of bidding instructions. Please remember to review these instructions prior to bidding. Deposits, when required are refundable to those without a winning bid. If you are the successful bidder in a live auction, the specific vessel instructions will explain the deposit requirements and closing process for that vessel.
In order to bid on boats available in our live auctions, users must register to obtain a username and password. Upon receipt of a request, our team will review your information and if acceptable, approve your account.
Once your account has been approved, you will receive a confirmation email. You may use your account credentials to login and place a bid on any of our live auctions. Please note that many of our live auctions contain specific instructions and deposit requirements. Those instructions will be present on the listing page.
