6. SHIPPING: ByceAUCTION, LTD. does NOT guarantee shipping services. We generally DO NOT bring furniture or large items back from remote locations unless specific arrangements have been made PRIOR to bidding. If you are buying items from our gallery at 755 Wick Ave. and require shipping, you must first call and get WRITTEN CONFIRMATION that we will ship the item. Our shipping fees are generally $25 coordination per item plus a packing fee (to be determined) plus actual shipping and insurance fees. This only applies to items that we can easily pack and ship, not large or hazardous items. If you use a third party shipper, this must also be approved IN WRITING and a shipping coordination fee of $25 per hour applies. Without prior documented approval, your items are subject to the terms and conditions of pickup. We seldom ship and if agree to do so, we will ONLY ship to the billing address of the credit card, insured, and you must pay for "signature acceptance."

No exceptions.  Any purchaser of any firearm must be 21 years of age and must personally pass a background check at our offices.  You must be a resident of Ohio with property ID to bid on a hand gun.  If you are a resident of PA or West Virginia or a state that borders Ohio, you may purchase Long guns. The purchasers information MUST match the registration information (for example Mary Smith is the successful buyer of a shotgun.  Mary Smith is the only person that may pass the background check and take possession of a firearm.)  Trigger locks are required on all Handguns when they leave our premises.  You may rent one for $10 cash if available.  If you return at a later date, the $10 fee will be refunded. IF  A BUYER FAILS TO PASS A BACKGROUND CHECK, A 25% RESTOCKING FEE SHALL BE ASSESSED AS WELL AS A $25 FEE FOR FAILED BACKGROUND CHECK.  At times, the FBI may request a “delay”.  We do not charge for delays that are eventually approved but if the delay is NOT eventually approved, you are subject to the above fees. 

7. PICKUP OF ASSETS:  Buyers and third parties may be required to produce ID for various security reasons. Please have your ID with you at all times. Bidders are responsible for their own removal. Removal shall be at the expense, liability, and risk of the purchaser. Purchases will be released upon presentation of a printed or electronic receipt. Please insure that movers or anyone picking up items on your behalf have your paid receipt at the pickup location.  They may be required to show ID. Bidder further agrees to be held personally responsible for all purchases made on their bidder number,  and agree that bidder will not charge back items which are not picked up during the published removal times. Buyer authorizes ByceAUCTION, LTD. to release buyer's assets to any individual in possession of the buyer's sales receipt. Buyers are prohibited from soliciting moving and labor services from other buyers. ByceAUCTION, LTD. may refuse to allow third party individuals to assist buyers if they feel they are unprepared or not equipped to move items. Shirt and proper footwear is required. If you present a hazard to yourself, the building or others at the auction you may not be permitted to move items. An auction pick up is NOT a place for small children. The auction company staff does not provide moving services or tools. Please be prepared to move ALL items out of the building first, then pack and sort your items! Our staff may restrict parking close to the load out site until it is verified that a buyer has all of their items ready to load.  All Buyers accept that pickup may be electronically recorded and monitored. **Bidders who do not comply with Pick-up Policies, Procedures, and Traffic Control will Not be accommodated as this is a breach of contract** **All Trays, Flat Boxes, and Bins are NOT Included**

8. ORDER OF ASSETS: Buyers of large items agree to wait to allow other buyers to remove their items due so as not to damage, hinder or delay other buyers from pick up. Buyers of items such as shelving are solely responsible for re-locating other buyers items if they are in or on a piece of furniture and are responsible for ANY and all damages OR, they may wait for said items to be collected by the other buyer(s).

9. BIDDING ERRORS: Please be aware that many bidders routinely increase their own bid to price an item out of reach of other bidders. You should immediately review your bids before submitted. We will not reverse bids that have caused another bidder to be outbid. If you bid on the wrong item we will not reverse your bid. Please make sure and review all bids before submitting. We will not reverse bids after the auction has begun to close, no exceptions.

10.  MAXIMUM BIDS: We only use one bidding field in most cases. MANY of our buyers submit their "maximum bids" as they no doubt have seen the convenience and do not risk missing the opportunity by placing only real time bids on items especially in the frantic final minutes. The software will “incrementally” place your bid up to the max if someone bids against you. If you are being immediately “out bid” when you place your bid, you are most likely up against a max bid. The max bids are not disclosed. CLICK ON THE "REFRESH LINK" often to be sure you are seeing current data. Communication of a gross bidding error does not in itself resolve the error. ByceAUCTION, LTD will attempt to address the bidding error. 

11. STAGGERED CLOSING: The online auction closes a certain number of items per minute intervals. This feature works great with the auto-extend feature to closely emulate a 'live' auction.

12.. DYNAMIC CLOSING: *(also called “soft close” or “auto extend”) The closing time of an asset is automatically extended an additional period of time if a bid is placed in the final minutes of the scheduled close to eliminate “snipe-ing”.  Once no bids are received for a final period of time, the software will close the item.  DO NOT WAIT TO PLACE YOUR MAX BID, THE SOFTWARE WILL ONLY BID UP TO YOUR MAX IF ANOTHER BID IS PLACED AGAINST YOU.  Remember live auctions?  The auctioneer would declare an items sold once the bidding STOPPED.  This is a great feature and is FAIR. The highest bid the system has received at time of close will apply.  

13. NOTIFICATIONS: The system sends out various notifications which may include “confirmations,” "outbid" notices and “invoices”  The auction company does not guarantee these automated communications. PLEASE CHECK YOUR SPAM FOLDER IF YOU DID NOT RECEIVE OUTBID NOTICES OR YOUR INVOICE! To quickly review your activity, you may login to do so. 

14. UNCLAIMED ITEMS/NON PERFORMANCE: In the event an item is not available for pickup, the buyer must notify our onsite staff and file a claim by replying to your original emailed invoice noting what was not available within 24 hours of the pickup date. After 24 hours, the Auctioneer and buyer agrees that there is no grounds to claim non-delivery of item.

14A. TITLED VEHICLES: Buyers understand that titles may take 30 days OR LONGER longer to process; especially with Probate sales.  The auction company has fulfilled its contract with the Buyer upon the presentation of a marketable title.  Titles will be made out to the purchaser unless instructions in writing are given to title the vehicle in a different name.  Buyer is responsible for any charges incurred to retitle a vehicle into a preferred name.  Buyer is responsible for any costs associated for duplicate titles or titles that they void in error.  In lots where there are multiple titled vehicles are offered and sold for one price and/or in conjunction with personal property or accessories, the purchase price shall me equally divided as to comply with state tax laws.  Buyers may, at the discretion of the auction company, be given possession of titled vehicles after payment in full.  Buyer is responsible to insure vehicle(s) upon being the high bidder is responsible for any loss upon being the contracted high bidder.  Buyer is responsible for acquiring temporary tags. If a vehicle(s) is inadvertently sold without a marketable title; the sale is void and the buyer releases ByceAuction LTD from any and all claims. Any return of asset(s) due to non marketable title must be in the condition it was received to receive any refund.  Vehicles, as with all items, are sold AS IS without warranty. Deposits for non performing buyer are non refundable, but not as liquidated damages and do not affect ByceAuction LTD from pursuing further remedies including legal action for performance of contract and additional damages resulting from the default.  Buyers agree to retitle vehicles in their name within 60 days of receipt of title and or/accompanying transfer documents.  ByceAuction LTD is not responsible for any title issues after this 90 day period nor for any loss due to improvements made to a vehicles that is non marketable due to title issue.
