No bids can be withdrawn before, during or after the auction for any reason. The winning bidder or BUYER agrees that these terms as well as all other terms set forth below, can only be amended or revised in writing, signed by the auctioneer. The BUYER also agrees that any oral representation made by the auctioneer shall not modify the "AS IS / WHERE IS" terms.

Item sales & item removal:
RepoMax reserves the right to accept or reject any and all bids (including high bids) on ALL ITEMS that sell through auction.

All purchases must be removed from the auction site without damaging any property and within the time stated in the auction listing. All costs, responsibility and risk of item removal shall be borne by buyer and, in every case; buyer will use prudence and care in such removal.

If, for any reason, a buyer fails to remove any winning items within the time specified, RepoMax shall have the right, but not the obligation, in its sole discretion, to resell, discard, remove or store unclaimed items at buyer's sole risk and expense. Late pickups WILL incur a storage fee which will be in the auction listing.

Storage fees must be paid at the time of pickup and payment. All fees are non-negotiable and will not be withdrawn for any reason.

Dynamic bidding:
RepoMax uses a dynamic bidding system. This means that an item will NOT sell/close at the end of the auction until there is 10 minutes of bidding inactivity. There is no "sniping" or last second bids. Everyone gets a chance to continue bidding on an item(s) until they no longer wish to bid.

For example: if an item is bid on at 8:55pm and the auction is scheduled to close at 9:00pm, then the ending time will automatically extend to 9:05pm. If another bid is place at 9:03, the auction will extend until 9:13pm. Remember: there must be 10 min of bidder inactivity before an item may close.

Seller bidding:
The seller, their agent or RepoMax reserve the right to bid on the seller's item in order to protect their investment or reserve bid. Sellers will be responsible for all fees associated with buying back and listing their items. There are no discounts for buying back your items.

Auction dates and times:
Closing times and displays of RepoMax's auctions are approximate. Our items usually start ending between 9-10 PM. RepoMax reserves the right to close early or extend auctions at any time at its discretion. It is strongly recommended that bids be placed early to avoid losing out due to an ill-timed, last minute bid. All times are based on the Time Zone where the auction is located.

Auction Listings:
Check the auction listing for current buyer percentages, auction location, inspection times, pickup times, storage fees.
