Rules & Procedures

After your payment is received, the certificate will be mailed to you.

Auction bidding begins through the Shoreline Media auction web site. Starting at 2 a.m. Monday, April 24, 2023 and continuing through 8:00 pm Thursday, April 27, 2023. 

Live bids start Friday, April 29, 2022 at 11 AM until 5 PM and will be taken by calling 231-845-5181.

ALL auciton items are closed at 5 PM, Friday April 28, 2023.

Items will be featured in twenty minute segments throughout both days. See Listing of Items and Closing Times in the special Auction insert distributed with the Ludington Daily News, Oceana's Herald-Journal and White Lake Beacon.

At the end of the twenty minute segment, bidding will be closed on those items. Because a limited number of phone lines are available, phone bids will only be accepted on items featured in that twenty-minute segment.

All items may be bid online at anytime up to the closing time listed. Auction closings online will be determined by the time shown in the Auction program. Proxy bids will be processed at the closing time.

Bidders on the phone and actively bidding at the time of the closing will be allowed to continue bidding. No new phone calls on that item will be accepted after the closing times listed. If there are no bidders on the phone at auction item closing, the auction is considered closed. Proxy bids will be included in any "after closing" phone bidding.

Winning bidders will be contacted by phone and will have one week to pick up their merchandise certificates to redeem at the participating merchant.

All payments can be made at the Ludington Daily News offices located at 202 N. Rath Ave., in Ludington or at Oceana's Herald-Journal, 123 State Street, Hart. Cash, check, Discover, Visa or MasterCard may be used for any purchase, excluding the vehicles offered. Vehicles must be paid for by cash or check. Sales tax and any other fees involved with obtaining any of the items purchased must be paid to the company providing the item for bid and are not included in the bid price. All sales are final. No exchanges or returns are allowed.
