Are you selling a lien unit? Have you followed the lien laws for your state?
Just like you normally do for live auctions, you must follow the same laws you do for "live" auctions. You will state that the auction is being held at www.mahaffeyauctions.com and use the end date (your choice) as the date when posting your auction.


Posting an auction with JMA
After the lien notices are sent out and all of the legal steps have been complete, you can now cut the lock off. Take up to 15 photos of the unit while not disturbing anything inside. Next, you will need to place a locking ID tag on the unit up for auction. You will send these photos to us to use in your online auction ad. Specific instructions will be sent to you once you are registered.


What if a credit card charge does not go through?
If for any reason a credit card charge is declined or there is a problem with the charge, JMA will go to the next highest bidder.


Your unit has sold...now what?
After the auction has concluded, your winning bidder will be sent your contact information, and you will be sent your winners contact information. The winning bidder must contact you within 24 hours to make arrangements to pay you for the unit and to clean the unit out. If you are a storage facility OR a private seller and require a clean out deposit you will make that known when submitting your auction.


What does it cost me to use JMA to sell a unit online?
After a unit has sold JMA will charge a premium to you. The percentage will be determined once you have registered with our company. You must keep a valid credit card on file for this purpose.
