Transitional Design Online Auctions provides a new, state of the art online shopping experience. You can shop in the comfort of your home whenever it’s convenient. Each exciting online auction is unique with items ranging from small collectibles to large furniture pieces, and everything in between. We also auction cars, motorcycles, boats, trailers and campers. You will always be amazed at the wide variety of things to bid on at

How do I register to bid?

Visit, click the register button at the top right corner, fill out the information and click complete registration.  It’s that simple, you are ready to start bidding!

What does it mean by “starts to close”?

Our online auctions have a staggered closing meaning that the first two lots close at the specified time, then the next two lots close one minute later and so on until all lots have closed.  Should a bid be placed within the last two minutes of a lot’s ending time, the ending time will automatically be extended to two minutes from the time that bid is placed. The timer will continue to extend in the same manner until the bidding activity has stopped. An item closes when the timer on the lot hits zero. The winning bidder of an item is the last Bidder the bid history recorded before the timer hits zero.

What is a maximum proxy bid?

You can enter the highest amount that you are willing to bid.  The system will automatically place a bid on your behalf for the lowest amount possible up to your maximum bid using an incremental bidding system. This allows you to remain the highest bidder for the online auction and your proxy bid will remain confidential to all parties, including Transitional Design.

 Can I view the items prior to bidding?

Yes, you can come to our location during our store hours to view the items prior to placing a bid.  The hours are Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday 10:00 am – 5:00 pm and Wednesday 10:00 am -7:00 pm  We are closed on Sunday.

How do I pay for my items?

You will receive an invoice the evening of the online auction closing.  On that invoice, there will be a link you can click to pay online with a credit card. The credit card on file will be charged the morning following the auction closing. Please note that all payments must be received prior to the end of the scheduled pick up.
