Failure to attend a scheduled preview constitutes forfeiture of bidder's rights to dispute purchase.
YOU must register to bid. Auctioneer may establish such Bidder Registration requirements and Bidder qualifications as Auctioneer determines, in Auctioneer’s discretion, to be reasonably necessary or appropriate. In order to register to bid, YOU must provide such information (including identifying information, payment information and qualifications) as requested by Auctioneer. Auctioneer may refuse to accept a Bidder Registration from any potential Bidder, may refuse to grant bidding privileges to any potential Bidder, and may revoke the Bidder Registration or bidding privileges of any Bidder. By registering to bid, YOU represent to Auctioneer that, if YOU are a natural person, YOU are at least eighteen (18) years of age and that YOU are otherwise legally able to enter into a contract. Each entity (i.e., corporation, limited liability company, or other organization) registering to bid represents that it has the power and authority to register, to bid, and to complete the purchase transaction if it is the Winning Bidder. If bids are made by or on behalf of an entity, the entity and any individual making the bid will be jointly and severally liable on account of the bid. YOU acknowledge and agree that YOU have read, understand, and agree to be bound by, these Bidder Terms and Conditions, any and all other terms and conditions posted on the Auctioneer website(s), and the terms and conditions posted on the websites of any Online Auction Platform Provider(s) used by Auctioneer.
All Property offered at the Auction is subject to a Buyer’s Premium in an amount equal to twenty percent (20%) of the Hammer Price, which will be paid by the Buyer to Auctioneer for Auctioneer's own account. The Buyer’s Premium is earned by Auctioneer with the fall of the Hammer and is non-refundable. The Buyer's Premium will be added to the Hammer Price to determine the final Contract Price for tax purposes.
YOU may not retract a bid that has been acknowledged by Auctioneer or that has been submitted online. YOU acknowledge and agree that Auctioneer is acting in reliance on tendered bids in the conduct of the Auction, and that bid retraction is disruptive and interferes with the Auction, and that, as an inducement for Auctioneer to accept YOUR Bidder Registration and for YOU to bid at the Auction, YOU agrees not to withdraw or to attempt to withdraw any tendered bid by YOU or on your behalf.

Auto Extend Feature - Any Online Bidding Period may include an auto extend feature. This means that, if an online bid is entered within a set time period approaching the end of the established Online Bidding Period, the Online Bidding Period will automatically be extended for an additional amount of time in increments established by Auctioneer, and will continue to be so extended until there is a set period of time that lapses during which no online bids are received, after which bidding will close.
Disclaimer - Auctioneer makes no representations or warranties, and disclaims all representations and warranties, (i) that the Online Auction Platform or any related website or technology will be uninterrupted, error free or virus free, (ii) as to the results that may be obtained by using the Online Auction Platform or any related website or technology, or (iii) as to the accuracy, completeness, reliability, security, or current nature of the Online Auction Platform or any related technology.

In Auctioneer’s discretion, Auctioneer may receive Absentee Bids and/or bids tendered by remote Bidders (whether telephonically or otherwise). Absentee Bids may be initiated and advanced in accordance with Auctioneer’s policies and procedures. Auctioneer will make reasonable efforts to execute Absentee Bids, but Auctioneer will have no liability to any Absentee Bidder for the failure to execute any Absentee Bids for any reason whatsoever. Auctioneer acts as the agent of the Seller only, and the receipt and/or execution of Absentee Bids will not create an agency relationship between Auctioneer and any Absentee Bidder. Absentee bids are subject to an additional fee of ten percent (10%) of total expenditure (hammer price plus buyer’s premium plus tax) and require a minimum opening bid of $20.00. Auctioneer has the right to refuse any
Bid increments are established and controlled by Auctioneer, and may be adjusted or modified in Auctioneer’s sole and absolute discretion.
Withdrawal of Property by Auctioneer
Unless specific Property is, in express written terms, put up at Absolute Auction, Auctioneer has the right to withdraw any Property from the Auction prior to the Fall of the Hammer.

Failure to Pay
Failure to Pay. If you fail to pay for your purchase(s) within time provided and your card on file is not charged or is declined, YOU will be deemed to have abandoned any interest in the Lot(s), but YOU will remain liable for payment of the Contract Price. Unpaid Lot(s) may be retained by Seller, resold at a subsequent auction, or otherwise disposed of. If unpaid Lot(s) are sold at a subsequent auction, YOU will be liable for any shortfall or deficiency on the resale of the Lot(s), plus the costs incurred in connection with reselling the Lot(s). Under no circumstances will YOU be entitled to any surplus from the resale of any unpaid Lot(s). Auctioneer and/or Seller may, at any time, commence a lawsuit against YOU for the Contract Price of any unpaid Lot(s) and/or for any deficiency realized on the resale of such Lot(s).

YOU are responsible for pick-up and removal of Lot(s) purchased by YOU. Pick-up location and removal dates and times will be as posted on Auctioneer's website or otherwise announced by Auctioneer. Unless otherwise agreed, YOU are solely responsible for the disassembly, rigging, removal, shipping, and transportation of each Lot purchased by YOU. Disassembly and removal must be done in a professional and workmanlike manner, and YOU will indemnify and hold harmless both Auctioneer and Seller(s) against all damage caused by YOU or YOUR employees, agents, representatives, or independent contractors in connection with the disassembly or removal of any Lot(s).

YOU, further, acknowledge and agree that any photographs or other images of Lot(s) are adequate for YOUR purposes.
Description of Lots
Unless otherwise expressly stated otherwise in writing, any description of a Lot is based solely on visual impression, and is given solely for identification purposes, and does not create any warranty, expressed or implied, or representation by Auctioneer or Seller.
If YOU are certified as the Winning Bidder on a Lot, YOU will be contractually obligated to pay the Contract Price; however, title and ownership of the Lot will not pass from the Seller to YOU until payment is made and clears.
Calculation of Sales Tax
Sales Tax Disputes. Unless otherwise directed by the appropriate taxing authority, sales tax will be calculated, and collected, based on the Contract Price, which includes the Hammer Price plus the Buyer’s Premium. If (i) YOU believe that YOUR purchase is subject to a sales tax exemption that is not recognized by Auctioneer, or (ii) YOU believe that the Buyer’s Premium portion of the Contract Price should not be subject to sales tax, or (iii) you otherwise dispute the sales tax, YOU should address YOUR dispute to the appropriate taxing authority and seek a refund from the appropriate taxing authority to the extent that the same may be available to YOU.
If you are tax exempt please send us a valid and up to date copy of your sales tax license or exempt certification. You can email a copy to firstname.lastname@example.org. Once we have your copy on file you will be marked tax exempt in our system for all future auctions until the expiration of your sales tax license.

If, in violation of these Bidder Terms and Conditions, YOU issue a stop payment order or initiate a credit card chargeback, YOU will remain liable for all purchases made at the Auction, and YOU will be responsible for all costs and expenses, including attorneys’ fees, incurred by or on behalf of Auctioneer and/or Seller in challenging the stop payment order or credit card chargeback and/or in collecting payment. YOU acknowledge and agree that the covenant not to issue a stop payment order or to initiate a credit card chargeback is a condition to the issuance of a Bidder Number or Bidder Account to YOU, and is being made as an inducement for Auctioneer to accept YOUR Bidder Registration, to issue a Bidder Number or Bidder Account to YOU, and to permit YOU to bid at the Auction. YOU acknowledge and agree that Auctioneer is relying on the covenant not to issue a stop payment order or to initiate a credit card chargeback in accepting YOUR Bidder Registration, in issuing a Bidder Number or Bidder Account, and in permitting YOU to bid at the Auction.
