Online Auctions
Neither the Auctioneer nor the Seller shall be responsible for any failure of any electronic or internet systems to accept or register a bid. Registered bidders must create a password that prevents others from using their account. Bidders are responsible for ALL bids placed under their name and password. This is a Public Auction and as such, all qualified bidders may bid, including the Auctioneer, his assigns, family members and employees.

Online auctions use a “Dynamic” ending process. If a bid is received in the last five (5) minutes before the scheduled closing of an item (or at any time frame as the Auctioneer establishes), the timer on that item will extend, and will continue to extend each time a bid is received. Once the bidding stops, and the timer runs out, that item will be eligible to close.
It is the Bidder's responsibility to determine condition, age, genuineness, value or any other determinative factor of all property.

Auctioneer may attempt to describe the property in advertising, on the internet and at the auction but makes no representations. In no event shall Auctioneer be held responsible for having made or implied any warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose. Auctioneer does not guarantee any appraisals, gradings or certifications. If you have any questions about the property, ASK THEM BEFORE BIDDING. Bidders shall be the sole judges of value.

By placing a bid, Bidder acknowledges that they have inspected the items to their satisfaction or chooses to not examine them at their sole risk. Even though a property may display as "sold" on the internet, no sales are final until they are certified by the Auctioneer and the bidder receives a confirmation from the Auctioneer. Auctioneer reserves the right to cancel any or all sales and resell the items in whatever manner he or she chooses.

Bidding increments are automatically adjusted based on the chart provided for each auction and are subject to change at the sole discretion of the Auctioneer.

Bids cannot and will not be removed or altered, unless in the opinion of the auctioneer, the bidder can establish that the bid was an obvious typographical error.
