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. Macs Bids 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 MACS Bids for clarification and notification of error.
All items are sold as is, where is in present condition, with no warranty expressed or implied. Any condition statement is given as a courtesy to a client, is only an opinion and should not be treated as a statement of fact.
The absence of a condition statement does not imply that the lot is in perfect condition or completely free from wear and tear, imperfections, or the effects of aging. Descriptions are believed to be accurate but not guaranteed. Bidders are solely responsible in determining the condition, nature, function, ability to perform, and value of any item. No allowance will be made for errors in cataloging, genuineness, defects, or imperfections not noted in auction description or disclosed by seller.
Macs Bids reserves the right to add or remove items from an auction, split or combine lots, add minimum bids or reserve prices, cancel, suspend, extend or reschedule an item and/ or auction event. And make changes to the auction closing, inspection, or removal times.
If a bid is made within the last minute, the closing time for that item will be extended by five (5) minutes in order to imitate a live auction environment as closely as possible.
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 absolute. Failure to remove purchased items during time allotted as pick up time will result in a storage fee of $5.00 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. Premiums and fees remain applicable.
A restocking fee equal to the purchase price will be charged to the buyer for any items not paid for in full, or not picked up within 24 hours after the day of the sale.
A 2.9% charge is added if buyer pays with credit card, either online or at pickup.
State law requires all auction companies to collect sales tax on any auction with multiple sellers (consignment auction). Our sales tax rate is currently 7.85%. If tax exempt, contact Macs Bids to provide tax exempt form.
