A date is selected for auction at which time
Rob will sit down and review with you all of
the offers, including the name of the bidder,
annual savings and any variables presented
on each offer. The bidding process usually
lasts one day, but can carry over to a second
day to allowing improved offers from bidders
if there are competitive bids. The best part
about this entire process is that at any time
you are not satisfied, you can walk away; this
is a risk free proposition!
