BIDDING: Bidder must register to participate in the auction. Read the descriptions of each lot and
view photographs carefully. If you have any questions call 502-330-5391. Should you visit the
viewing location, please personally inspect the property on which you intend to bid during the date(s)
indicated in the details per item when applicable. Using YOUR knowledge and experience, form your
own opinion of the property and bid accordingly. If you are in doubt, DO NOT BID. All items are sold AS-IS WHERE IS AND WITH ALL FAULTS! This is an AUCTION and all SALES ARE FINAL. Bids
cannot be retracted and are binding contracts between Bidder and Auctioneer/Seller. Bidder is
accountable to be informed about property and associated costs before bidding. If you bid on several lots that are similar you do not have the right to pick which lots or items you want. If you result in being the final high bidder you are expected to pay for that item. Online bidding is to be understood as a binding contract. Bids will be taken with the understanding that the bidder will honor their winning bid with sufficient funds including all applicable taxes and fees. Do not bid if you do not intend to pay. Notification of winning bids will be sent via email along with an auction invoice within 24 hours of the auction’s close
CLOSE OF BIDDING: For your convenience, the closing of items will begin on a staggered basis of 10 seconds for each item. See paragraph below regarding the Extended Ending feature.
EXTENDED BIDDING: The items in the auction will be subject to a extended ending, whereas at the close of the auction, any bidding activity on an item within 3 minutes of the closing time will automatically extend the bidding for 3 more minutes past the time of the last bid. The bidding on that lot will continue to remain open in 3 minute intervals as long as there is bidding activity within 3 minutes of the previous bid. Once there is no bidding activity for a 3 minute period, the bidding on that item will close. For example, if a lot is supposed to close at 7:00 PM but a last minute bid is placed at 6:59 PM, bidding will be extended until 7:02 PM. If another bid is placed on an item at 7:02 PM, bidding will then close at 7:05 PM, unless subsequent bids are placed.
METHODS OF BIDDING
Bidding can be made using two methods on our website- “Your Bid” and “Your Maximum.”
“Your Bid:” This feature allows the bidder to input a single bid as in a live auction. For example: the bid for item #1 is currently $2,000 placed by bidder A. Bidder B wishes to bid $2,500. By placing a bid of $2,500 in the “Your Bid” box, Bidder B now has the current winning bid. If Bidder A wishes, he/she may bid again, continuing the auction cycle.
“Your Maximum:” This feature does your bidding without the bidder having to constantly view, log in, and bid on an item. Setting a maximum online is much like coming to a live auction with a preset spending limit in mind. The program will bid for you, in the prescribed increments, and only up to your spending limit for the item. For example: item #3 is currently at $5,000 with Bidder A having the winning bid. Bidder B wants to place a bid and is willing to spend as much as $7,500 for item #3. If Bidder B places a maximum bid of $7,500, the price of the item rises only to $5,050. Bidder A returns to the item online and places his/her maximum bid at $5,250. The program automatically does the bidding: A-$5,100, B-$5,150, A-$5,200, B-$5,250. The bidding stops at $5,250 with Bidder B winning because the next bid would be $5,300, which is more than Bidder A’s limit. Maximum bids are kept confidential. Any bidder can raise a bid or a maximum bid at any time prior to the close of the auction.
A maximum bid is kept confidential, and Bidder authorizes Auctioneer and Program to place bids on his/her behalf up to the amount of the maximum bid. All questions or disputes must be resolved immediately; no changes or adjustments will be made at a later date. Auctioneer reserves the right to reopen bidding. Auctioneer decisions will be final.
BUYERS PREMIUM: A Buyers premium of 7% will be charged on each purchase Unless otherwise
stated. A buyer's premium, an advertised percentage of the high bid or flat fee added to the high bid
will be added to the high bid and become part of the purchase amount at settlement. Buyer agrees
to these provisions and will pay the applicable buyer's premium. Example if an item is sold for
$100.00 + 7% buyer's premium = Final bid price $107.00 + applicable taxes.
PAYMENT TERMS: PER THE DIVISION OF SURPLUS ALL PAYMENTS ARE REQUIRED TO BE A SECURED ELECTRONIC PAYMENT (ie. . CREDIT/DEBIT CARD WITH A 2.75% CONVENIENCE FEE OR ACH (ELECTRONIC CHECK) WITH A $2 FEE. ALL WINNING BIDDERS WILL RECEIVE AN EMAIL/TEXT ONCE THE AUCTION IS COMPLETED WITH PAYMENT INSTRUCTIONS. All payments must be received by the Kentucky Division of Surplus Property personnel from October 1, 2020 through October 7, 2020 Monday through Friday only. No payment extensions will be granted. Payment will be made in full by the buyer. Upon making payment for property, no stop payment of funds will be honored. Any stop payment order of a Credit Card/Debit Card which is returned marked insufficient funds, shall be deemed by the parties to be a prima facie evidence of fraud existing at the time the transaction was consummated and shall be construed by the parties as intent to defraud.
