The seller is responsible for maintaining items sold in auction in the same condition as when listed, for fourteen (14) calendar days of winning the bid or until such a point the buyer or the buyer’s agent picks the item up, whichever comes first.

UNRESERVED AUCTION TERMS
Blue River will conduct an absolute auction. No minimums, no reserves, no buybacks, no set reserve prices, and no bidding on behalf of the seller will be tolerated. In accordance with the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) section 2-238, in an unreserved auction, if the auctioneer knowingly receives a bid on the seller’s behalf or the seller makes or procures such a bid, the buyer is entitled to the goods at the price of the last good faith bid prior to the completion of the sale. If you place shill bids on items, this bidding behavior is a violation of both UCC regulations governing unreserved auctions and Blue River shill bidding policies. Should Blue River suspect that shill bidding is taking place or has taken place, all items will have their final sale price adjusted to the last good faith bid, per the Uniform Commercial Code.
As an AuctionTime.com bidder bidding on Blue River items, you agree to never bid on your own items or on behalf of any other seller whatsoever. You also agree not to have others bid on your behalf. Bidders will not use an alias or collude with others to place bids on any of the seller’s equipment including, but not limited to, seller’s family members. Bidder agrees not to bid directly or indirectly, in any capacity whatsoever, nor cause or assist anyone to bid for seller or on seller’s behalf, nor bid as an officer, director, shareholder, partner, proprietor, joint venture, advisor, limited liability company member, consultant, owner, employee or other agent of any third party. It is only upon these terms that Blue River will list equipment, as these restrictions are necessary to protect the integrity of the “unreserved auction” or “absolute auction” process and the reputation of Blue River in selling through Auction Time.
All sales are subject to the sales tax and/or other applicable tax laws. Buyer assumes all responsibility for government issued licenses and/or inspection certificates as well as all required or associated licensing and inspection costs. Buyer agrees not to use any identification, trade name, licenses, and/or certificates belonging to or used by seller or Blue River.
The buyer is responsible for all applicable sales tax on items purchased through Blue River on Auction Time Auctions. Sales tax guidelines from the applicable state will be used to determine if an item is sales tax exempt. If the exempt determination is made, the buyer will be responsible for obtaining, completing, and forwarding all necessary forms from the taxing jurisdiction (e.g., city, county, state) to Blue River. Sales tax can only be cleared from the buyer’s invoice once all required forms have been completed, submitted, and validated. Sales tax or appropriate sales tax exemption forms are due at or before the time of payment. No items will be released to the buyer until payment is received in full by Blue River. Payment in full includes the payment of all applicable sales tax or the submission of all appropriate sales tax exemption forms

Once the payment is received, a paid-in–full invoice will be provided to the buyer. Payment in full includes the payment of all applicable sales tax or the submission of all appropriate sales tax exemption forms. Failure to submit all sales tax or clear sales tax with appropriate forms at the time of payment will prevent the item from being released to the buyer.

Blue River will prosecute all non-payers to the full extent of the law. Do not bid if you are not capable of paying. ABSOLUTELY NO EXCEPTIONS. Do not take this statement lightly because as a Bidder, placing a bid is a binding contract between you and the Owner/Seller and the bid cannot be retracted.
Buyer agrees to remove purchase from seller’s location within fourteen (14) calendar days of winning the bid. Transportation, and any and all costs associated, will be borne by the buyer. Should buyer fail to remove purchase within the specified period of time, Blue River or seller may charge a storage fee of $25 per day until purchase is removed from seller’s location. All such charges shall be the sole responsibility of the buyer. The buyer agrees to indemnify and hold harmless seller, Blue River, AuctionTime and its agents against all damages, liabilities, claims, or causes of action arising out of said property storage and removal. If buyer does not remove item within thirty (30) days, item may be placed for sale in the next available AucitonTime auction by Blue River. All storage fees, handling costs, and sales commissions for the removal and “re-sale” of the item will be deducted from the final sale price. Any remaining proceeds will be returned to the abandoning buyer, provided Blue River is able to determine a method for doing so.
Entering into a separate storage agreement with the seller is between the buyer and seller, and Blue Rive & AuctionTime have no responsibility for resolving any subsequent conflicts or disagreements which arise between buyer and seller.
