Auction Terms & Conditions By registering and bidding in this auction, bidder agrees to be bound by the terms and conditions listed below.
* TERMS OF SALE:
A 15% Buyer's Premium will be added to each high bid upon invoicing. Sales tax will then be charged on that amount, unless bidder has provided LST Auctions LLC with a tax exempt certificate. All items are sold "AS IS / WHERE IS", with No Warranties, Guarantees or Representations of any kind from seller or LST Auctions LLC with respect to the property or its value, and in no event shall either be responsible for correctness of description, genuineness, attribution, provenance, authenticity, authorship, completeness, condition of the property or estimate of its value. No statement (oral or written) in the catalog or elsewhere shall be deemed such a warranty or representation, or any assumption of responsibility.
ALL SALES ARE FINAL--NO RETURNS, NO REFUNDS. Auctioneer makes every effort to provide detailed photographs and descriptions of all items but these are provided ONLY AS A GUIDE--it is the Bidder's resposibility to verify correctness of ANY advertised information to his/her satisfaction as to use for any particular purpose. Bids should be based solely upon the Bidder's personal inspection and opinion. Failure to inspect the property does not relieve bidder of responsibility for payment and removal as stated in these terms. All bids are a binding contract according to these terms. Bidder acknowledges that once a bid is offered, the Bidder shall be bound by the bid amount. Bids cannot be withdrawn or retracted. Always check and verify your bid amount before submitting it. Auctioneer reserves the right to add or remove items from the auction at any time prior to auction close.
* INVOICES & PAYMENT:
All purchases must be paid by credit card. By registering and bidding in this auction, Bidder authorizes LST Auctions LLC to charge their credit card to pay invoices for any and all lots bidder wins at aution. All winning bidders (buyers) will have their credit cards charged for their winning bid(s) plus buyer's premium and sales tax within 24 hours following auction close. "PAID IN FULL" invoices from LST Auctions LLC will be emailed to all high bidders following successful processing of credit cards. "PAID IN FULL" email will include the pickup location address with scheduled pickup date(s) and times as listed in the auction description. Winning bidders must present a paper or electronic copy of their "PAID IN FULL" Invoice when picking up their item(s). Any lots/items not picked up on scheduled pickup dates/times will be deemed abandoned and will become property of LST Auctions LLC, subject to resale or disposal as Auctioneer sees fit. No refunds will be made.
* SALES TAX:
Sales tax will be collected on all taxable items at the appropriate sales tax rate UNLESS Bidder has filled out and provided a valid Texas Resale Exemption form. Tax-exempt Bidders must email completed forms to LSTAUCTIONS@GMAIL.COM PRIOR TO THE CLOSE OF THE AUCTION or immediately upon winning any bids. We must have this form on file in order to exclude sales tax from your purchases when we process your credit card for payment after the auction closes. We do not refund taxes collected once we process your credit card.
* BIDDING (SOFT CLOSE):
To make the auction more realistic and help ensure every valid bidder has an equal chance to bid on lots, the HiBid software uses a "soft close" feature. The first lot begins closing at the posted time, then each subsequent lot closes 10 seconds after the previous. If a bid is received in the last three minutes of the closing of a lot, three minutes will be added the closing time to ensure sufficient time for all interested bidders to submit their bids. Extended Bidding continues until no additional bids are received for three minutes ensuring all bidding has ceased.
MINIMUM BIDS (RESERVES):
LST Auctions LLC, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to establish a reserve or minimum price on any items--without having to announce, post or publish notice to bidders. Lots with reserves will normally have a note advising bidders if a reserve amount has been met or not. Auctioneer reserves the right to confirm or reject any final bid.
LST Auctions LLC sets bidding increments and bidders agree to adhere to those increments. Auctioneer reserves the right to reject any bid. In the event of two equal bids, the bid received first is deemed the winner. For any dispute among bidders, LST Auctions LLC may, in its sole discretion, either accept what it deems to be the final bid or solicit further bids on the item in dispute.
* PREVIEW & INSPECTION:
Preview and Inspection is by appointment only for registered bidders. Contact LST Auctions LLC via email at LSTAUCTIONS@GMAIL.COM if you would like to schedule a preview. Individuals previewing items are personally responsible for any breakage/damage to those or any other items they may break or damage on the premises and will be charged for any damage they cause. All people previewing assume all responsibility for their own safety. Auctioneer & Seller are not responsible for accidents.
* PICK UP DATES & TIMES:
Pickup Dates & Times are listed in the Description Tab on the Auction Page and also in the "PAID IN FULL" Invoice emails--and must be adhered to.
