Regardless of pick-up location, all payment arrangements must be made within 2 business days of the auctionâs closing. If invoice payment arrangements are not made by this time, you authorize your credit card on file to be charged for total amount plus a $25.00 late payment fee.
No late fees will be removed from an invoice once they are added. It is your responsibility as the buyer if you have not received a paid invoice via email within 24 hours of submitting payment to contact Equip-Bid to verify receipt of payment in order to avoid being charged a late fee. Accepted forms of payment include cash, certified check, money order, Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. A valid credit card must be kept on file with Equip-Bid at all times. Equip-Bid has the right to submit an authorization from time to time to ensure the credit card is valid. If the card becomes invalid, Equip-Bid will disable your bidding rights and they will not be reinstated until a valid credit card is provided.

REMOVAL: Once an auction has ended, the items become the property of the winning bidder (buyer). Buyer assumes all risk of loss and damage to property from that point forward including at the premises of the sale. The removal date and time will be posted on the terms for each individual auction. REMOVAL TIMES ARE ABSOLUTEâIF YOU CAN NOT REMOVE YOUR ITEMS DURING SCHEDULED PICK-UP TIMES, DO NOT BID! Failure to remove purchased items during time allotted pick-up time will result in a storage fee of $100.00 per day per invoice. Items remaining at sale location after thirty days will be considered abandoned. Ownership of item will then revert to party with primary vested interest in the item to sell or dispose of item as it sees fit. Any funds paid shall be forfeited to satisfy terms of sale. The buyer agrees to pay all deficiencies, legal, collection and other fees including transportation and storage expenses associated with delinquent accounts or abandoned/forfeited items. DYNAMIC/STAGGERED CLOSING: Beginning March 1, 2010, auctions at www.equip-bid.com will close at a rate of three (3) items per minute. If a bid is made within the last 3 minutes, the closing time for that item will be extended for five (5) minutes in order to imitate a live auction as closely as possible. BID NOTIFICATION: If you have been outbid you will be notified by email ONLY until the day before the auction ends. The email outbid notifications will not be sent for an auction beginning at midnight (EST) on the day of the auction ending. To quickly review your bids and see if you are the winning bidder, you can utilize the âReview Bidsâ feature. Items which you have been outbid on will be marked. WINNING BIDDER NOTIFICATION: Notification of items won will be sent to you ONLY by email.
It is the buyerâs responsibility to check your email (it may be necessary to check junk/spam email folder.) If you feel you have won an item and have not received an email, you must notify Equip-Bid by email or phone no later than 9:00 a.m. In the event an item is not available for pick-up, the buyer must notify our onsite staff and file a claim within 24 hours of the pick-up date by replying to your original emailed invoice noting which items were not available for pick-up. After 24 hours past pick-up, Equip-Bid and the buyer agree that no adjustments or refunds will be made. CAUTION TO THE BIDDER: For demonstration purposes, various pieces of equipment may be joined together.
Do not assume a lot consists of more than one item simply because they are connected together. You are bidding on the item as it is described and not the item in the photo. Equip-Bid makes an effort to ensure the descriptions are accurate and the photos match as well. However, an error can occur in the listing and in that case it will be the description and not the photo that will be the item won. If you feel there is a discrepancy or error between a listing and a photo, contact Equip-Bid for clarification and notification of error.
