So you have searched, got a translation, bid on a vehicle …. and you hear it has “passed” close to your bidding price. On second thoughts you think it may be worth just a little more than your bid, so you request us to “negotiate” for you. Depending on the auction, the negotiation rules are different, sometimes VERY different. In front of me as I write this I have 7 pages of different rules and conditions, if I translated them verbatim, I would be accused of putting you to sleep in front of your computer. So in a condensed form:
What about the following day? You may not hear that the vehicle passed until after the auction closed! Well, SOME auctions allow us to negotiate up until 12pm (lunchtime) the following day, and that is not your lunchtime, that is Japanese lunchtime, or bento box time. Though recently this ability to negotiate the following day has been removed.
