Auctions - Auctioneer Guideline

Auctioneer Guidlines

 

 

 

Thank you for your interest in becoming an ABC Licensed Auctioneer. We are very excited about our new Breedables and want to have premier Auction Locations and Auctioneer’s showcasing these amazing Breedables.

 

All applicants will need to meet certain requirements and follow the Guidelines put in place by ABC and its staff. To become a Licensed Auctioneer, please complete and submit the Auctioneer License Application located on our website.

 

 

Requirements:

 

All Auctioneer applicants will need to attend an ABC approved Auction Licensing Class for introduction to the ABC Breedables.

 

Licensed Auctioneers should be familiar with the ABC Auction Location Guidelines.

 

During instruction you will be given the opportunity of conducting an auction in class for approval.

 

Once you are licensed you will be eligible to preside over ABC Authorized Auction Location, either as an “in-house” Auctioneer or a “freelance” Auctioneer.

 

 

Guidelines:

 

As a licensed ABC Auctioneer you will need to familiarize yourself with the Auction Locations style of holding auctions and their regulations.

 

Be onsite at least 1 hour before Auction starts to receive the line up of horses.

 

Auctioneer will need to display their License at the Auction Location during the auction.

 

The Auctioneer should negotiate their payment for conducting the Auction with the Auction House.

 

Auctioneer will be asked to assist in collating the information for the Speck Sheet that is to be turned in to the ABC Auction Team.

 

“Starting Bid/Reserve Bid Dropping” is not allowed during the auction.

 

ABC is not responsible for unpaid fees, although this is a serious infraction against the Guidelines and there are consequences; please notify the Auction Team with the details of the Auction date/time/final sale price and any conversation documentation gathered.

 

In the event that these guidelines are not followed you risk losing your privileges as a Licensed Auctioneer or any activity involving ABC Auctions suspended or permanently removed.


**Note: These guidelines are subject to change, but all changes will be communicated through the ABC website and a group notice. Please refer to this website for the most current version. We reserve the right to copy any communication involving ABC business transactions, either in email or in-world.
