All sales are final.
3. The bidder, whether acting as principal, agent, officer or director of a company or otherwise, in any capacity whatsoever, and the company he represents, both jointly and severally agrees to indemnify and save harmless Auctioneer and its officers, directors, employees, agents, attorneys and its consignors, from any and all actions, causes of action, suits, damages, costs, and losses of any nature, including injury and death, arising from the purchase or use of any items, or the attendance or participation of bidder, his/her agents or employees, at the auction and/or on the auction site whether before, during, or after the auction.
4. Bidder agrees to be responsible for the payment of the purchase price, Auctioneer’s fees, any applicable DMV fees, and taxes due on all of bidder’s purchases.

Bidders are encouraged to make their own physical inspection and rely solely on that inspection before bidding. Failure to inspect does not negate that Bidders responsibility to perform under the auction terms and conditions.
7. The Auction Catalog has been prepared as a guide, and should be used as a guide only. Although the descriptions are believed to be correct its accuracy cannot be guaranteed or warranted. The Bidder acknowledges that all auction items are available for inspection prior to the auction and it is the Bidders responsibility to have inspected the item before bidding. No sale shall be invalidated; nor shall auctioneers be liable as a result of defects or inaccuracies of any lot.
8. Bidder acknowledges that an auction site is a potentially dangerous place. Flammable, noxious, corrosive and pressurized substances are present, heavy equipment is being operated and electric circuits may be live. Every person at the auction site, at any time, shall be there at his own risk without notice of the condition of the premises and the activities thereon and bidder shall so advise his agents and employees. No person shall have any claim against Auctioneer, its officers, directors, agents, employees, principals, or attorneys for any injuries sustained, nor for damages to or loss of property, which may occur from any cause whatsoever.
9. Any dispute arising as to any bidding shall be settled by Auctioneer at his sole discretion, and Auctioneer may put the lot in dispute up for sale again.

11. Interest on overdue amounts will be paid by purchaser at a rate of 2% per month/24% annual, or at such other maximum rate allowed by law.
12. State and local sales tax will be assessed and collected on all purchases unless legal exemption documentation is provided at the time of sale.
13. A Buyers Premium will be added to the bid price of each item purchased unless otherwise noted. Specific auction items may be exempt from buyer's premium. $0 - $1,500 = 15% Bid Fee * $1,501 - and up = 10% Bid Fee.

Auctioneer reserves the right to require proof of adequate insurance coverage from any purchaser items requiring dismantling, rigging or hot cutting. Purchaser agrees to indemnify and save harmless both, consignor and Auctioneer, its officers, directors, employees, agents, and attorneys against any damage caused by the acts of purchaser. All items must be removed from the auction facility within 7 days after the auction date. If for any reason purchaser fails to remove any purchase within the time specified, the purchase shall be deemed abandoned, and Auctioneer at its sole discretion may resell the items. Purchaser shall be liable for any rent incurred or damages suffered by Auctioneer because of purchaser’s failure to remove any item. Failure to remove items will result in a rental / storage fee of not less than $25 per item per day.
16. A $65 document processing fee, and a $65 smog fee, (if applicable) will be charged for every DMV purchase, whether sold independently or grouped into one Lot and regardless of purchaser’s intended use of the purchase. If you would like expedited services for registration, plates, and title transfer it will be an $80 document processing fee and a $29 electronic filing fee per transaction.
17. California law does not provide for a “cooling off” or other cancellation period for vehicles. Therefore you cannot later cancel a contract simply because you change your mind, decide the vehicle costs too much, or wish you had acquired another vehicle.
18. Bar None Auction must offer a 2-day cancellation option, should you wish to exercise, to purchase the right to return certain motor vehicles under $40,000 by 5 pm of the second day after the sale. This cancellation option applies only to vehicles purchased for personal or household use; it does not apply to motorcycles, off-road vehicles, recreational vehicles, or vehicles sold for business or commercial use. In order to exercise this option you must inform Bar None Auction at the time of purchase on that specific auction day.
The cost for purchasing this cancellation option is as follows:
Purchase Price Cost of Option Restocking Fee
$0 - $5,000 $75 $100
$5,000 – 10,000 $150 $200
$10,001 – 30,000 $250 $250
$30,001 – 40,000 $1% $500
The amount is non-refundable and the purchaser will also be charged a restocking fee. The vehicle must be returned in same condition and the mileage must not exceed the (250) permitted miles otherwise the option is void.
19. Funds must be certifiable prior to the processing or release of DMV documents. Documents will be prepared to be effective only in the jurisdiction in which the auction is being conducted.

If for any reason, Auctioneer is unable to make available or deliver any purchase or clear title to the same, or documentation required in respect of any purchase, whether before or after delivery, Auctioneer’s sole liability shall be the return of monies paid in respect of such purchase upon its return by purchaser. Any such purchase shall be returned or surrendered upon demand by Auctioneer.
21. Some vehicles may be sold pursuant to vehicle code 24007.5, subsection (a) paragraph (2) and may only be available to licensed motor vehicle dealers and dismantlers.
22. Some commercial trucks will be offered for sale to out of state buyers only as regulated by the California Air Resources Board requirements for State of California. Items sold for export out of California will be accompanied with a certificate of title and a VIN stop filed with California Department of Motor Vehicles. Buyers must be registered with Bar None prior to bidding and must provide out of state address and driver’s license. Purchasers of items sold for export outside of California will be required to sign VIN Stop and out of state delivery declaration before the item can be removed from the sale site.
23. Auction bidder agrees that he/she is herein notified, pursuant to: §2449(j) Disclosure of Regulation Applicability, that any off-road diesel vehicle, when operated in California, may be subject to California Air Resources Board In-Use Off-Road Diesel Vehicle Regulation. It therefore could be subject to retrofit or accelerated turnover requirements to reduce emissions of air pollutants.

If a mis-description is determined after removal, the Government will refund any money paid if the purchaser takes the property at his or her expense to a location specified by the contracting officer.

Property must be removed by close of business the day of the sale. Buyers may make arrangements with the auction house to store vehicles at the auction facility for additional time, but this agreement is between the buyer and the auction house and the buyer assumes all risk of damages and costs associated with storage.
Access to some federal facilities is now impacted by the Real ID Act. If using a driver's license or state issued identification card as identification, it will need to comply with the requirements of the Real ID act at those locations. Refer to www.dhs.gov/real-id-public-faqs for more information on the REAL ID Act. Individuals without licenses fromcompliant jurisdictions may present alternative forms of identification - such as a U.S. Passport - accepted by the agency. Some agencies may have additional processes to accommodate individuals lacking the prescribed identification documents.

It is the responsibility of the bidder to be cognizant of which vehicle they are bidding on. Bidding on the incorrect vehicle does not constitute grounds to be released from the award of that vehicle.
The minimum amount for liquidated damages is changed to $325 as stated below. “The purchaser agrees that in the event he fails to pay for the property or remove the same within the prescribed period of time, the government at its election and upon notice of default shall be entitled to retain (or collect) as liquidated damages a sum equal to $325 per instance.”
