Chuck's Auction Tip 2: Arriving at Shipshewana Auction

Are you a new or inexperienced buyer, and want to try out the Wednesday Shipshewana Miscellaneous & Antique Auction? Watch Chuck's Tips for buying at Shipshewana Auction video series where he'll explain everything from buyer's numbers to understanding the auctioneer to loading your items. In this segment, Chuck explains the parking procedure at Shipshewana Auction.

Watch the video here, or read the transcript below.

Once you've made a decision to attend one of our auctions, which is held every Wednesday, I would suggest coming fairly early in the day. The auction starts at 9:00 am, so many of our buyers are arriving by 7-7:30 in the morning in order to preview items. 

As you're coming on to the auction property, especially in the summer, we do have designated areas for people who are the Antique & Miscellaneous Auction to park. A lot of them are bringing trucks and trailers; some cars. Parking is at a premium. We do charge to park on the property in the summer months. During the winter months (fall, winter, spring), there is no charge to park, but in the summer, there is a fee to park. Park in the designated areas. You can buy season parking passes if you come regularly, or you can buy day parking passes at the gate as you're coming in to attend the auction.

Once you get out of the car, walk on into the auction barn, and I'm looking forward to seeing you on the auction floor!
