Merchandise becomes the full responsibility of the bidder at time of payment and the bidder assumes all risk of loss and damage to property at that time.
Buyer agrees to remove purchase from seller’s location within ten (10) calendar days of winning the bid. Transportation, and any and all costs associated, will be borne by the buyer. Should buyer fail to remove purchase within the specified period of time, Musser Bros or seller may charge a storage fee of $25 per day until purchase is removed from seller’s location. All such charges shall be the sole responsibility of the buyer. The buyer or the buyer’s agent is responsible for arriving with a paid in full invoice and the appropriate equipment to safely transport the item purchased. If the transportation equipment to be used is viewed as unsafe, the buyer or the buyer’s agent may be turned away without the item, at the buyer’s expense. The buyer agrees to indemnify and hold harmless seller, Musser Bros, and its agents against all damages, liabilities, claims, or causes of action arising out of said property storage and removal. If buyer does not remove item within thirty (30) days, item may be placed for sale in the next available Musser Bros auction. All storage fees, handling costs, and sales commissions for the removal and “re-sale” of the item will be deducted from the final sale price. Any remaining proceeds will be returned to the abandoning buyer, provided Musser Bros is able to determine a method for doing so. Musser Bros also maintains the right to suspend the bidding privileges of any buyer who does not pick up items purchased in the auction within the specified terms.
Entering into a separate storage agreement with the seller is between the buyer and seller, and Musser Bros has no responsibility for resolving any subsequent conflicts or disagreements which arise between buyer and seller.
A buyer's premium of 2.5% of the high bid will be added to the high bid to determine the final sales price for the auction lot.
Beginning at the stated closing time, the auction software will conclude bidding for one or more lots each minute in catalog order with the following exception: if a bid is placed with 40 seconds or less remaining for that lot, bidding for that lot will remain open until 40 seconds passes without any further bid advances.
Until the auction begins to close, the bidding software will notify bidders by email when they have been outbid.
PLACING A "MAXIMUM AUTO BID"
Please be aware that when placing your "Maximum Bid", the website will bid on your behalf up to your set maximum bid by the preset bid increments. Example: The current bid is $1000 and the bidder enters a maximum bid of $5000. The system will bid at the preset increment until the bidders "Maximum bid" is exceeded. At that point, the bidder will be notified that he/she has been outbid (if that option is selected when registering). High bidder will only pay one increment more than the competing bidder. Please watch the auction closing time stop clock to determine exactly when the lot will close.
TIE BID PRECEDENCE
In the event of a tie bid, precedence is given to the earliest bid. Hypothetical Example: Bidder #1 places a $10,000 max bid on a vehicle that currently has a high bid of $5000. The high bid is now at $5,025. Bidder #2 places a max bid at $7000. Bidder #2 is immediately outbid by the $10,000 max bid and the high bid immediately adjusts to $7,025. Bidder #2 decides to place a $10,000 max bid this time. He does not surpass the initial $10,000 max bid by Bidder #1 therefore he is not the high bidder. In the case of a tie bid, precedence is given to the earliest bid.
Each lot will sell to the highest bidder without reserve, unless noted otherwise.
All sellers are contractually prohibited from bidding on lots they have consigned to the auction.
All sales are final. There are no returns, refunds, credit card charge-backs or adjustments.
