Terms and Conditions for All Other Merchandise
Inspections: Click to sign up to see the items in person on Sunday, September 20, 2020. We will have a limited number of spots available every 15 minutes. Precautions will be in place to meet guidelines for controlling the spread of COVID-19 including the wearing of masks.
Payment Terms: All items must be paid for in full prior to removal and not later than 6:00 pm on Wednesday, September 23, 2020. Payment may be made by cash, credit card (VISA or Mastercard), good personal check, Official Bank Check, or bank certified check. All purchases over $1,000 must be paid for by cash, credit card (VISA or Mastercard), Official Bank Check, or bank certified check. Most buyers choose to pay for their items when they pick them up. However, you can also click “Pay Invoice Now” when you received your invoice. If you fail to pick up your items, we will go ahead and charge your credit card.
Attention Credit Card Buyers: Due to a nationwide insurgence of attempts to purchase items with the use of a stolen or fraudulently obtained credit card, for any such suspected transactions, Wardlow Auctions Inc. hereby reserves the right to: 1) request buyers to provide a copy of their driver’s license and credit card with which they are paying, and 2) withhold shipping of purchased items for a period of up to 10 calendar days to insure that payment and validity of the transaction is good.
Pick-Up and Removal Information and schedule:
All purchases can be picked up at (address to be provided prior to open house), Louisville, KY 40223 on Tuesday, September 22, 10am - 3pm and Wednesday, September 23, 12 noon - 6pm. Items not removed by the Thursday deadline will incur a $20 rescheduling fee or at-cost charge if the item has to be disposed of.
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. If your purchase is unbreakable and small enough to fit in a USPS Flat Rate box, we can probably handle that for you. The cost will be $8 plus the USPS cost and can be charged to your credit card.
Registration: Registration is free but does require several important pieces of information. Bidders must be registered with their 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 and to facilitate payment once you receive your invoice. 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.
How to Register for First Time Bidders: Click on “Register to Bid”, at the next page click on “Sign Up”, and then complete the information requested. Upon successful completion you will receive notice that you are approved to bid.
If You Have Already Registered: If you have already registered and been approved, you simply click on the “Register to Bid” link and on the next page, click on “Sign In”.
Description of Items: 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 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. Bidding can be made using two methods on our website- by clicking on the “Bid” button or by clicking on the “Set Max” button to establish your maximum bid. Bidding increments are pre-set and vary in relationship to the value of the item.
Up to $20.00 - $1.00 increment
Up to $50.00 - $2.00 increment
Up to $100.00 - $5.00 increment
Up to $500.00 - $10.00 increment
Up to $1,000.00 - $20.00 increment
Up to $10,000.00 - $50.00 increment
Up to $50,000.00 - $100.00 increment
“Set Max” Feature: 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 set maximum bid for the item. Your Maximum bids are kept confidential and not available for other bidders to see. Any bidder can raise or lower a maximum bid at any time prior to the close of the auction.
Sales Tax: All sales are subject to 6% Kentucky Sales Tax. The sales tax on the vehicle will be collected by the county clerk's office during the title transfer.
Close of Bidding: The bidding will begin to close at 7:00 PM (Eastern time zone), Monday, September 21, 2020. For your convenience, the closing of items will be on a staggered basis of 7 items every minute. For example, items 1-7 will begin closing at 7:00, items 8-14 will begin closing at 7:01, items 15-21 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: All items in the auction will be subject to an extended ending, whereas at the close of the auction, any bidding activity on an item within 3 minutes of the closing time will automatically extend the bidding for 3 more minutes past the time of the last bid. The bidding on that lot will continue to remain open in 3 minute intervals as long as there is bidding activity within 3 minutes of the previous bid. Once there is no bidding activity within the 3 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 7:02 PM. If another bid is placed on an item at 7:01 PM, bidding will then close at 7:04 PM, unless subsequent bids are placed.
Notification to Winning Bidders: All winning bidders 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.
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.
Loss of Bidding Privileges: If you fail to pay for or pick up your items in a timely manner, your bidding privileges may be revoked. Your privileges may be restored by paying for the item and repaying for any loss of the revenue due to the items not having been sold. Additionally if you’ve paid for your items but fail to make pick-up arrangements, please read the following paragraph.
Transfer of Title and Ownership of Property: Title and ownership of property purchased shall convey to buyer only upon payment AND pick-up of the property by the winning bidder. Unless special arrangements are made with the auctioneer, for any items not paid for and/or picked up by the winning bidder within 7 days of the date payment was due, the property shall be considered abandoned and any interest they may have in the property shall revert back to the seller or auctioneer and there shall be no refunds to the winning bidder.
Auctioneer's Representation and 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.
