Terms: All items sell AS IS WHERE IS with no warranty of any type expressed or implied as to the merchantability or fitness for any particular purpose of any goods offered in any sale. All sales are made on an AS IS - WHERE IS basis with all faults. All buyers are strongly urged to physically inspect the item during the inspection period prior to bidding. No bids can be withdrawn before, during or after the auction for any reason.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 be amended or revised only in writing, signed by an Officer of the Auction Co. BUYER also agrees that any oral representation made by the Auction Co., its agents, directors, officers, employees, representatives, successors, or assigns shall not modify these "AS IS - WHERE IS" terms. BUYER understands that any description given in the catalog or written on the equipment is not guaranteed, and BUYER will rely entirely on their own inspection. All information and descriptions contained in advertising this sale are believed correct, but no responsibility is assumed by Auction Co., or Seller for any errors or omissions. Auction Co. reserves the right to accept or reject any and all bids (including high bids) on ALL ITEMS that sell through auction.

Times & Dates: Posted closing times and displays of Auction Co.'s current time are approximate. Items usually start ending between 9-10 PM. Auction Co. 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. Dynamic bidding - The dynamic bid on this website is a feature that does NOT allow an item to sell at the end of the auction until there is 10 minutes of bidding inactivity. Example - An item is bid on at 7:50 pm. An auction is scheduled to close at 8:00 pm. When this bid is placed the ending time will automatically extend to 8:10 pm. When another bid is place at 8:01 pm the auction will extend until 8:20 pm. This will give the bidder 19 minutes to place another bid. If no bids are placed this auction will conclude at 8:20 pm. The key to your dynamic bidding feature is that the auction extends from the preset closing time in 10 minute intervals, NOT 10 minutes from when you placed your bid.

Auction Co.'s Right to Terminate Purchase: Auction Co. has the right to terminate any purchase or bid for any reason. If for any reason Auction Co. is unable to complete the sale of any purchase to buyer or provide such purchase free and clear of liens, even if the buyer was given notice that he is the high bidder and purchaser, Buyer agrees that the Auction Co. may terminate the purchase/agreement, in which case Auction Co.'s only liability shall be the return of any monies actually paid by buyer.
