All abandoned/confiscated vehicles are sold as "tow-aways" and without an emission test or 45- day permit. It is the responsibility of buyers in the Colorado program area to comply with the emission requirements prior to registering the vehicle. A document regarding emissions is attached to the paperwork of each abandoned/confiscated vehicle sold. Be advised that Colorado Motor Vehicle will NOT issue temporary permits for vehicles sold as "tow-aways."
Online Bidding and 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.
Online auctions use a “Dynamic” ending process. If a bid is received in the last few minutes before the scheduled closing of an item, 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. In some cases, items are “linked”, keeping one item open for bidding when a different item in the auction has been extended due to active bidding. The Auctioneer retains sole discretion on the timing of all auctions and closings.
It is the Bidder's responsibility to determine condition, age, genuineness, value or any other determinative factor of all items. Auctioneer may attempt to describe the merchandise 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 any items, ASK THEM BEFORE BIDDING. Bidders shall be the sole judges of value. It is Bidder's responsibility to determine if any item is legal where they live.
By placing a bid, Bidder acknowledges that her or she has inspected the items to his or her satisfaction or chooses to not examine them at his or her sole risk. Inspection opportunity is limited, and Bidders who do not inspect vehicles personally agree that their inspection of catalog photographs as available on the internet are sufficient to meet their inspection needs. Even though an item may display as "sold" on the internet, no sales are final until they are certified by the Auctioneer and the bidder receives an invoice.
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 Auctioneer.
Bids cannot and will not be removed or altered, unless in the sole opinion of the Auctioneer, the bidder can establish that the bid was an obvious typographical error.
