Prime Time Auctions provided their services for the Snake River FFA Alumni Auction this year and they did a wonderful job. They were very professional and were a great asset to our organization. They made my job as the President of the Alumni Council much easier and I really appreciate all of their help.

Upon visiting Prime Time Auctions, I was immediately struck by the professional atmosphere and welcoming attitude by everyone in the office. You get the impression right away that the whole group works collectively to provide a great experience for both the sellers and buyers who take part in their auctions.

Prime Time Auctions is a wonderful company that does so much for their community. They were recognized by the Greater Pocatello Chamber of Commerce as the 2011 Member of The Year. They provide auction services to the Chamber for our annual February Fantasy event and the Leadership Pocatello Presents event. They are awesome to work with and are great chamber and community supporters.

A rare difference in an auction company these days in honesty. It's nice to deal with an auction company with ethics. I drive from Ogden anytime I can to attend. I always leave happy.

How does it all work?
Buying at auction is fun and easy. You can pick up a free bid card on the day of the auction or on preview day. You need a driver's license and address the first time you register. Then each succeeding time you come to an auction, we only need your name and signature. Please read all the terms of the sale before bidding at auction. We will have more than one auction ring going at the same time. All bidders have an equal opportunity to buy. Just raise your bid card or your hand to bid and you can be the winning bidder on the items you desire.
What can I buy at auction?
Almost anything can be sold at auction. An auction is a great place to purchase a vehicle, tools and equipment, household goods, industrial items, décor and gift items, and even a kitchen sink. We also auction real estate.
Many items are commercial quality. We have even sold items that are brand new. We encourage potential bidders to preview items before the auction. You can inspect items on preview day which is the day before the auction for our monthly auction. Check them out. Start the engine. See if the item works. We love that you know what you are buying.
Every auction is different with different merchandise. If you see an item you want, be the highest bidder, because once an time is up for auction and sold, it will not be available again.
When are the auctions?
A monthly community auction is held the second Saturday of each month. Many sellers consign a wide variety of items to auction. These auctions are usually held at our business location of 3400 S. 5th Ave., Pocatello, ID. During winter months, we hold them at a sheltered location. The Calendar tab on our website shows all scheduled upcoming auctions. Some auctions are just one seller's items and are usually held at a separate location. The public is always welcome to any of our auctions.
How long are the auctions?
Ring one of our monthly community auctions begin at 9:30 am. The second and third rings will begin at 10 am and 10:30 am respectively. The length of the auction ring depends on the type and quantity of items. On our auction page website, scroll to the bottom of the page where you can view the estimated times for auction items to sell. These times are posted by the afternoon, the day before the auction.
Where do you get the merchandise?
Items are consigned to auction from individuals, businesses, banks and bankruptcy trustees. The exact consignor is confidential information. All items are sold "as is" and we encourage you to inspect prior to bidding. The majority of our sellers are motivated to sell and honestly disclose major unseen problems, which are then disclosed to bidder. We want the potential buyer to inspect each item prior to auction.
Auctions are fun!
People with similar interests are brought together at an auction. Many attendees return often, just for the fun of it. They want to see if they can find a "treasure." There are concessions at most auctions as well as seating, so come early to preview and get the best seats.
Come see your friends or meet some new ones!
