TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALE: All bidders are responsible for reading, understanding and agreeing to these Terms and Conditions of Sale, as well as any supplemental notices provided either in writing or verbally prior to the start of the auction. If you have any questions after having read the Terms and Conditions of Sale, please contact us at 760-562-4954
or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your bid is a contract.
Place a bid only if you're serious about buying the item. If you are the successful and winning bidder, you have entered into a legally binding contract to purchase the property bid on from the seller. You should contact the seller to resolve any questions before bidding.
BUYER'S PREMIUM AND PAYMENT: A 18% buyer's premium applies to all lots purchased regardless of bidding or payment method. California sales tax of 8.75% will be charged on-site at the auction for this auction for bidders at the auction and those residing in California bidding by phone, absentee or internet bid unless a valid tax exemption number is provided. Any out-of-state bidders may be responsible to report purchases and pay use tax under their own state law. All bidding will be in and must be paid in U.S. Dollars. Invoices are due immediately upon receipt and must be paid in full before any property can be removed from the auction venue or our offices. We reserve the right to hold all goods paid for by check until payment has cleared. If payment is not received within 10 days of sale, Trend Estate Sellers reserves the right to void the sale and deny future participation in future auctions. Possible Collection action will be reviewed.
LIVE INTERNET BIDDING: Trend Estate Sellers has engaged the services of LiveAuctioneers.com as a courtesy for its customers who wish to bid and buy online. Please proceed to www.liveauctioneers.com for all necessary information on how to bid and buy online using this system. The user of LiveAuctioneers.com indemnifies and holds Trend Estate Sellers and its consignors harmless against any claim arising out of or resulting from your use of the LiveAuctioneers.com site, including all losses, damages, liabilities, and all fees (including attorney's fees), costs, and expenses incurred in connection with any claim. Under no circumstances, including, but not limited to, negligence, shall Trend Estate Sellers and its consignors be liable for lost profits or any special, incidental, or consequential damages that result from the use of, or the inability to use, this site.
RESERVES AND PRE-AUCTION ESTIMATES: Each item may have a confidential minimum reserve price established by Trend Estate Sellers and the consignor. Trend Estate Sellers may bid on behalf of the consignor at the auction up to the reserve. If bids on a lot fail to reach the reserve, the lot will be "bought in."
Each lot meeting its reserve price will be sold to the highest bidder as determined in the sole and exclusive judgment of the auctioneer. The auctioneer will also have the sole and exclusive power and authority to a) resolve any disputes between bidders, b) determine whether to pass or re-offer a lot for sale, c) reject or challenge any bid or advance in the bidding, and d) otherwise regulate the bidding and its increments.
The pre-auction estimates provided are our opinion of what the property will sell for at auction. These estimates are opinion and were derived from prices paid at our or other past auctions, reference materials available on the subject property, or our subjective opinion as experts in the field. By no means are pre-auction estimates to be taken as a guarantee or warranty of the value or marketability of any particular item(s).
SHIPPING: Trend Estate Sellers typically ships via UPS Ground or USPS with full insurance as a convenience to our buyers. We charge the actual amount for UPS or USPS shipping and insurance plus the actual cost of packaging supplies. A nominal handling/labor fee is added on a per package basis that will not exceed $5.00 per carton. After payment is received, on a "first paid, first shipped" basis, lots will be packaged and a shipping total calculated. This total will be billed as a second charge to the purchaser's Visa or MasterCard number. While we make every attempt to ship purchases quickly, it may be up to 15 business days before your purchases are shipped from the date of payment.
