BUYERS MUST PROVIDE THEIR OWN LABOR, TOOLS, REMOVAL EQUIPMENT, PACKING MATERIAL AND BOXES IF NEEDED.
Shipping: If you require shipping we suggest you use professional shippers. We have worked successfully with a company called Fragile Pack of Louisville to handle customers' shipping needs. Buyers should contact Scott Logsdon of Fragile Pack at (502) 423-0000 for shipping questions and needs. Wardlow Auctions will coordinate your shipping needs to the extent possible.
Registration: Registration is free but does require several important pieces of information. As with our live auctions, bidders must be registered with a full name, address, and telephone number. An email address is also required so bidders may be sent winning bid notifications and auction invoices. Information from either a MasterCard or Visa is to be held on file. This information is obtained to deter defunct bidding. The account will be charged in the event that an item has been unpaid after the allotted time for payment has passed. Registration may only be completed with an acknowledgment that the bidder has read and understood all terms and conditions for the sale and online bidding.
Merchandise: All descriptions and information are believed correct, but are not guaranteed and as such the Auctioneers, Wardlow Auctions, Inc., and/or the Seller shall not be held liable for inaccuracies in the information. It is the Bidders responsibility to obtain or verify, prior to bidding, any information they consider critical to their decision to purchase. Preview times are available for potential bidders to physically inspect the items. All bidders are encouraged to inspect and research all aspects of the items, descriptions and information provided to their complete and full satisfaction prior to bidding. The items are being sold “as-is” “where-is” with no warranties or guarantees of any kind including merchantability and/or fitness for particular purpose.
Bidding: 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 6 hours of the auction’s close. Be sure to check your "Junk" email folder if you do not receive your invoice within that time frame. 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.

Sales Tax: All sales are subject to 6% Kentucky Sales Tax.
Close of Bidding: The bidding will begin to close at 7:00 PM (Eastern time zone), Thursday, August 23, 2018. For your convenience, the closing of items will be on a staggered basis of 5 items every minute. For example, items 1-5 will begin closing at 7:00, items 6-10 will begin closing at 7:01, items 11-15 will begin closing at 7:02, etc. The closing of some items may be extended in the event of last minute bidding. See paragraph below regarding the Extended Ending feature.
Extended Ending: 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 5 minutes of the closing time will automatically extend the bidding for 5 more minutes past the time of the last bid. The bidding on that lot will continue to remain open in 5 minute intervals as long as there is bidding activity within 5 minutes of the previous bid. Once there is no bidding activity for a 5 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 7:04 PM. If another bid is placed on an item at 7:02 PM, bidding will then close at 7:07 PM, unless subsequent bids are placed.
Penalties: Any bidding found to be fraudulent and/or negligence to provide proper payment in the allotted time will result in all appropriate legal action. Any invoice not fully and properly paid for in the allotted time will be charged to the credit card account presented at registration and the items forfeited. Delinquencies will be noted and will prevent the individual from participating in any further live or online auctions conducted by Wardlow Auctions, Inc. Wardlow Auctions, Inc. retains the right to prevent anyone from participating in this and future online auctions who does not abide by the terms and conditions of the auction or whose actions are not in the best interest of our client, the Seller.
Auctioneer's Right to Bid: In accordance with KRS330.220(6)(a), it is hereby disclosed that, with permission from the seller, the auctioneer and any auction staff members have the right to bid.
Special Terms and Inspection Periods for Sale of FIREARMS:
Inspection – All guns are located at Gunsports, 3231 Ruckreigel Pkwy., Louisville, KY 40299 and may be inspected anytime during regular store hours which are Monday – Saturday, 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM. All descriptions and information are believed correct, but are not guaranteed. Items are sold “as is" "where is” with no guarantees or warranties. It is the Bidders responsibility to inspect the items and research any and all descriptions and information to their complete and full satisfaction prior to bidding. All sales are final.
Sale and Transfer: 1) Persons must be at least 21 years of age to buy a handgun and 18 years of age to buy a rifle or shotgun. 2) All sales must comply with ATF and Federal Firearms requirements. As such Gunsports will run a background check on all purchasers (excluding those holding a current FFL). 3) Out of state buyers must arrange to have their guns shipped to a FFL dealer of choice in their area. Any shipping fee and transfer fees charged by those FFL dealers will be the responsibility of the buyer. 4) Any bidders who think they might not pass the background check and thus denied ownership should not bid. There will be no refunds to buyers not approved for purchase. Gunsports will handle transfer and shipping on sales to in-state and out-of-state buyers as requested or required by law. Buyers will be responsible for paying a $20 transfer fee for each gun, to Gunsports to cover the back ground check and processing. Please note that only the winning bidder may purchase and pick up the gun.
Why is a Background Check Required? Our clients, and us, want to be assured that the sale and transfer of the guns are in compliance with the law. In the event that these guns are subsequently stolen from or sold by the buyer and used for illegal purposes, our clients want to be free of any liability regarding the sale and use of the guns.
Gun Payment and Pick-up:
a) All items will be available for pick-up at Gunsports on Friday, August 24th and on Saturday, August 25 during store hours.
b) Payment: Buyers may come by the auction site on Friday August 24 during the scheduled pick up time and pay for their gun OR contact us and authorize us to charge your credit card and we can email you a receipt or send it to Gunsports. Either way, you must have a PAID receipt to pick up your gun as they are not authorized to release any guns without having a PAID receipt. Remember, by law, you cannot have someone else pick up the gun for you unless they are a Federal Firearms Licensee.
If you have any questions regarding the background check, pick-up, or shipping, please contact Gunsports at (502) 267-4867.
