In some photographs, multiple items may appear to be joined as a single unit, however you should not assume that a lot consists of more than one item simply because various items appear connected or are featured in the same photograph. Also understand that, on occasion, the wrong photograph may be displayed for a given item. At all times, you are bidding on items as they are described on this website, not as they appear in any photograph.
41. CHOOSE WISELY: We want everyone to get a good buy and most will. However, when you bid on the wrong item or decide an item is not suited for your intended use, our clients will not assume the cost of your mistakes.

44. Reporting Bidding Errors: You should carefully review every bid you choose to make before submitting that bid. The Auctioneer will not automatically assume that any bid, even a bid that increases your own, lower bid, was made in error. Many bidders routinely increase their own bids to price an item out of the reach of other bidders. You understand and agree that you will be held responsible for having made all bids that are made using your bidder account information, even when such bids are made in error. If you mistakenly increase your own bid at any time during the auction, or make some other bidding error (e.g. placing your bidder number in the price field), you must immediately contact the Auctioneer by using the contact email address on the website. Reports of bidding errors must be made via web form; phone reports will not be accommodated.

In the event a seller withdraws an item from this auction prior to the close of the auction, the Auctioneer may leave the item on the catalog and buy the item back on behalf of the seller to establish the Auctioneer’s earned commission and the buyer’s premium due to the Auctioneer from the seller.
48. Closing: The Auctioneer’s online auctions are designed to mimic traditional “live” actions. For this reason, this auction may have a staggered, dynamic closing. You must continuously refresh your browser during the closing process to see the most current activity on your items, both prior to placing your bid and after submitting your bid.
49. Staggered Closing: This online auction will automatically begin to close at a rate of a pre-determined number of items per minute, every minute. Items’ closing times may be extended past their scheduled closing time, however, as a result of the Auctioneer’s dynamic closing feature.

You are solely responsible for checking your email following the close of the auction to determine what items you have won and for bringing the Paid In Full invoice to the removal with you. It is imperative that you previously registered with a credit card that can bear the weight of all of your purchases at the time of invoicing. Invoices are not sent as soon as the auction begins closing; they are sent out by the end of the business day on which the auction closes. Bid Inquiries: If you believe that you placed a winning bid, but do not receive an e-mailed invoice, you must notify the Auctioneer by submitting email via the Auctioneer’s website explaining your situation by 8:00 am CST on the day after the auction has closed. If you do not make payment in full by 4:00 pm CST on the day after the auction has closed the Auctioneer will charge your credit card on file and then send you a Paid In Full invoice. If the Auctioneer is unsuccessful in charging your credit card on file, you will be sent an email with instructions directing you to log in to your profile and update it with another credit card that can be charged. If your credit card information has been updated and you still do not receive your Paid In Full invoice, be sure to check your Spam or Trash email folders. You agree that the Auctioneer will be the sole authority regarding the identification of winning bids.
52. Suspension: You understand and agree that if, at the end of this auction, the Auctioneer is twice unable to charge your credit card for the entire amount of your purchases; the Auctioneer will suspend your online bidding privileges indefinitely. The Auctioneer may reinstate suspended accounts in the Auctioneer’s sole and absolute discretion if the suspended bidder remits a $1,000 deposit to be held in escrow for a period of one year. Chargebacks Prohibited: You agree that you will accept all charges placed on the credit card associated with your account, and you agree that you will not charge back any amount that the Auctioneer charges to your credit card. You agree that this provision applies equally to amounts charged in connection with any items you have won and any costs or fees discussed in these Terms and Conditions.
53. Default and Resale: You agree that if, after being declared the winning bidder, you fail to pay for any item that you have won for any reason, your account will be declared in default. If you still fail to pay for any item after being notified of your account being in default, you agree that the Auctioneer will have the right to immediately resell your item, and you further agree to pay (1) any cost associated with the resale and (2) any deficiency between your original purchase price and the resale price.
54. Picking Up Your Items: You are solely responsible for the safe and timely pick-up and removal of any items you may win at this auction. If you are unable to safely pick up and remove your items during the removal times that have been scheduled for this sale, PLEASE DO NOT BID. The Auctioneer does not personally ship, nor does the Auctioneer hold items beyond the published removal times. The Auctioneer will not issue you a refund if you are unable to pick up and safely remove your items during the published removal times. Bidder’s Duty to Remove Items Safely: Again, you are solely responsible for the safe pick up, removal, and transportation of your items. You agree that the pick-up, removal, and transportation of your items will be solely at your expense and at your risk. You further agree that you will be responsible for any damage that you or any of your agents cause during any preview or removal period, and also agree that the credit card associated with your online account will be charged for any expenses incurred and/or repairs necessary as a result of any damage that you cause.
55. It is the buyer's sole responsibility, that after they are declared the winning bidder, of any item, they must protect and safeguard their item from removed by any unauthorized individual(s).
