If you see an item during or before the sale it can be purchased under certain circumstances. There is no pre-sale But you can request the item and we give the people attending five minutes to purchase the item and if it is not purchased it is set aside and you can buy it from your credit card. Credit card information must be given prior to the sale. There is a 4% surcharge for this service. Big items must be picked up by the end of the sale unless the owners can meet with you at a later date.
