INFORMATION FOR THE AUCTIONS:
The trade show opens first thing in the morning and will remain open thru the auction sale. Whether you’re looking for team uniforms, shock absorbers, a complete engine, new chassis or just tips to improve your racing operation, you’ll find what you need at these trade shows. The admission to the trade show is included in your admission to the auction sale, racers seminars and the Riverside Park Speedway Reunion. Arrive early and stay late!
HERE’S HOW TO BUY:
Arrive early, sign-up for a free bidder’s card and pick-up a free catalog. All items (lots) are numbered and displayed so you can inspect them before the bidding starts. Bring lots of cash so you are ready to buy through the auction and from the many trade show exhibitors who will have displays. Be prepared to transport your purchases. We suggest bringing your hauler, trailer or truck because at every auction people see items they would bid on if only they had the transportation along with them to get it home. There is AMPLE, FREE PARKING at the Riverfront Lot located at 1557 West Columbus Ave Springfield, MA 01103, so that will not be an issue.
All Auction Sales Terms and Conditions – NOTE: The Terms, Conditions and Auction Commission Schedule will be posted as soon as a Massachusetts licensed & bonded auction company is secured to run the sale.
All items in the auction are assigned ‘lot’ numbers. When possible, talk to the consignor (former owner) to find out the condition and history of those items. Have other qualified people look at the item, get several opinions. The items will generally be sold in lot number order.
Make a note of the lot numbers of those items you are interested in bidding on and you can determine the approximate time to be in the bidding grandstand. Lowest numbers sell first. All lot numbers are systematically brought before the auction block and the bidder’s grandstand, described, and auctioned off to the highest bidder. Make yourself noticed when bidding. DON’T HIDE OR HESITATE as the auctioneers can only spend a short time on each item.
All items auctioned are sold ‘as-is’ and without guarantee. In the preview & inspection area, take time to thoroughly inspect all items you’re interested in before they pass thru the auction.
Once you are the successful bidder, you are obligated to pay for and take the item. Pay for your purchases at the cashier’s office, then pick up your items at the storage area. All items must be removed from the building within one hour of the end of the sale on the same event day.
The New England Racers Auction has great opportunities to buy high performance equipment for your racing operation at a fraction of the cost. Hundreds of items will be auctioned every hour throughout the auction. Remember that auctions are fun, provided you bid responsibly and remember that you will win some and lose others.
