A complete vehicle list with sale terms and conditions is made available at the auction location. Most auctions are held on a Saturday at 10:00 a.m. Public viewing is scheduled for the day before the auction, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., and on the day of the auction from 8:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.

Additionally, auctions are advertised in The Boston Globe’s classified section under Auctions in the Sunday and Thursday editions preceding the auction date. All ads specify auction location, date, time, and general list of the items being sold.
