Auction Terms & Conditions Auction Terms & Conditions
ONLINE ONLY AUCTION TERMS AND CONDITIONS: No Shipping (Local Pickup Only)
By bidding at this auction, you indicate you have fully read and agree to all terms and conditions of this auction.
Please read the terms carefully as they are a legal binding contract between you and Sieren Auction Sales. To register and bid in this auction you must agree to these terms and are bound by them as a bidder.
All items are sold AS IS, WHERE IS, with NO WARRANTY expressed or implied. It is the responsibility of the buyer to determine the condition of the items and bid accordingly. All items must be considered used or previously owned property even if labeled as new in box. We cannot guarantee the item will be in full retail condition. Place your bids accordingly and read all descriptions and Terms prior to placing your bids. No refunds will be issued for any reason.
Items may appear to be grouped in a photo. Do not assume a lot consists of more than one item simply because they are connected or pictured together. Please inspect the written information and read the descriptions carefully. You are bidding on the described item not the photograph; occasionally the wrong photo may be displayed. Contact our office if you are unclear as to what is included in a lot.
If you bid on the wrong item or decide an item is not suited for you, you cannot remove or lower a bid. When in doubt about condition, completeness or suitability for intended use, ask before you bid. No bids will be removed once they have been placed.
Due diligence is the responsibility of the Bidder/Buyer. All sales are final - Buyers assume complete responsibility for care of each purchase at time of sale - that is when the bidding ends on our website and you are the high bidder.
We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone.
The most recent correspondence with buyers via email or our website take precedence over written material and any prior verbal statements.
The auction company is not responsible for accidents, thefts, errors or omissions.
The auctioneer reserves the right to add or remove items from the auction; split or combine lots; add minimum bids or reserve prices. The auctioneer reserves the right to cancel, suspend, extend or reschedule an individual item and or auction event or to make changes to the auction closing times or inspection or removal times.
BUYERS PREMIUM: A buyer's premium will be added to each purchase. For example, suppose the buyer's premium is 15%: if you bid $100.00, at checkout you will be charged $115.00. Each and every time you place a bid, you are required to confirm and agree to the total bid price of your initial bid plus buyer's premium.
AUCTION CLOSING: The closing time of this auction will be listed within the auction information page of our website. Once bidding closes, items you have won become your responsibility - make note of closing times!
This auction features EXTENDED BIDDING. Bidding will extend on a lot for TWO minutes past the closing time, if a bid has been placed on that lot within the last TWO minutes of the auction. That lot will remain open until there are no bids on that item during the extended time period. This only affects lots with last minute bids. Any lot not bid on in the last two minutes will close as scheduled. Example: If you are participating in an auction that closes at 6:00 PM and you place a bid at 5:55, that lot will extend until 6:05 p.m. and would keep extending TWO minutes after each new bid is placed. It will stop extending when no bid has been placed during the extended time period.
This auction features MAXIMUM BIDDING. This means that you can bid a higher number than the next "Asking Bid". You can place a max bid at any time in the place bid space by simply entering the highest number you want to bid. When you place a MAX BID, the current bid price will only go to the next increment, or one increment over someone else's max bid if one has been placed. The computer will bid for you in the pre-determined auction increments up to your highest dollar entered if someone else bids against you to raise you to that dollar amount.
If someone has already entered a MAX BID on an item you are bidding on, the system will automatically bid for you until you are the current high Bidder or you reach your MAX BID. If you have reached your MAX BID and are still not the current high Bidder, the system will give you the opportunity to enter another MAX BID.
Bids will be placed in the order that they are received. If 2 buyers enter a max bid of the same dollar amount, the buyer who entered his/her max FIRST will be the bidder that is in at that price. If you bid a certain amount and see that the bid is indeed that amount, but you are not the 'Winning Bidder', that means that someone else had a max bid of that amount and so their bid was placed into the system ahead of yours. The best way to know if you are out is to check your email as you should get an email every time you are outbid.
You may request out bid notices when registering for your online bidding account. You can choose to have them sent to your email, cell phone via text message or both. If you are not able to be around a computer mobile device during the closing of the auction or receive and/or read your outbid notices, we HIGHLY RECOMMEND you utilize the max bidding feature. Please remember, you can always raise your max bid, but you CANNOT lower it.
Sieren Auction Sales is not responsible for internet malfunctions, loss of connection or system glitches that may prevent you from placing last minute bids, or receiving notices from our company. Don't wait until the last minute to bid; if the system is busy, your bids may not process within the last seconds of an auction closing.
