Before you bid, be sure to read all of the Terms and Conditions.
Temporary change in terms and conditions due to government intervention to control coronavirus.
Due to the sudden and dramatic changes that have taken place in an effort to stem the spread of the coronavirus, and the possibility of uncertain changes to come (all of which are outside of ours, the seller’s and bidder’s control), we are temporarily adding a new element to our terms and conditions that will allow for the extension of the auction period under extenuating circumstances as noted below.
In the event of a significant event such as a mandate for everyone to “shelter in place” or “to close all certain businesses” or other comparable significant action that would impede the continuation of the auction as scheduled, we reserve the right to extend the auction closing date beyond the date originally scheduled. For clarification, this simply means that the auction would remain open but the auction closing date would be extended as reasonable and appropriate given the situation. We will of course notify all registered bidders of any extensions of a closing date should that situation occur. If those events do not occur, the auction will close as planned.
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.
Buyer’s Premium: A 10% buyer’s premium will be added to the winning bid of each item to determine the final selling price.
Payment Terms: All items must be paid for in full prior to removal and not later than 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 8, 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 prior to or when they pick them up. All items not paid for by 7:00 p.m. Thursday, October 8, 2020 will be charged to the purchaser’s credit card on file. Any item not removed by the removal deadline will incur a $20 rescheduling fee if a small item has to be moved to our office or an “at-cost charge” if a larger item has to be removed from the auction site by the auctioneer.
Attention Credit Card Buyers: Due to a nationwide insurgence of attempts to purchase small high value 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.

All Buyers are solely responsible for item removal. All Buyers must provide all necessary labor, tools, equipment, and supplies for the safe removal of all purchased items. Auction staff is not permitted to assist with furniture or heavy items.
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. We can ship some small and non-breakable items that will easily fit in a USPS flat rate box. Cost will be $10 plus the USPS charge. Wardlow Auctions will not be responsible for any breakage or damage.
Registration: Registration is free but does require several important pieces of information. Bidders must be registered with a full name, address, telephone number, and valid credit card information. An email address is also required so bidders may be sent winning bid notifications and auction invoices. Credit card information is obtained to establish bidder legitimacy, deter defunct bidding and charge the account at your request or in the event you do not pick up your items. 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.
New Bidders: Please do not wait until the last minute to register for the auction. We suggest that you register early and then place a bid early in the auction (while the bids are still low) in order to familiarize yourself with the bidding process. It will make your auction experience much more relaxing and enjoyable.
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”.
All Items Sell “as is” “where is”: All items are being sold “as-is” “where-is” with no warranties or guarantees of any kind including merchantability and/or fitness for particular purpose. All descriptions and information provided 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.
Notification to winning bidders: An email notification 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.

Set Maximum Bid 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.
Close of Bidding: Bidding will begin to close at 7:00 PM (Eastern Time Zone), Monday, October 5, 2020. For your convenience, the closing of items will be on a staggered basis of 7 items every minute. See paragraph below regarding the Extended Ending feature.
Extended Ending: The 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 for a 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.
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 or shipping 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 the winning bidder may have in the property shall revert back to the seller or auctioneer and there shall be no refunds to the winning bidder.
