Bidder Information and Security:
All registration information the bidder provides to Auctioneer shall be current, complete, and accurate. All bidders are responsible for any bids placed under their bidding numbers and passwords. The security of bidder information is the responsibility of the bidder. Bidders must notify Auctioneer if they feel that their bidder number and password have been compromised.
The listing of all items herein is a guide only and is based on information given to Auctioneer, but its accuracy is not guaranteed or warranted. Auctioneer is not responsible for any errors in description or condition. Terms of no warranty sales: All items sell AS IS - WHERE IS WITH ALL FAULTS and with no warranty of any type expressed or implied as to the merchantability or fitness for any particular purpose of any goods offered in this sale. All sales are made on an AS IS - WHERE IS WITH ALL FAULTS basis. All bidders are encouraged to physically inspect the item during the inspection period.

ALL SALES ARE FINAL
Interruption of Service:
Auctioneer cannot, and will not, be held responsible for any interruption in service, errors and/or omissions caused by any means. Auctioneer does not guarantee continual, uninterrupted or error free service onsite or with any online-bidding platforms. Bidder acknowledges that the online-bidding portion of this auction is conducted electronically and relies on computer hardware and software that may malfunction without warning. Auctioneer, in its sole discretion, may void any sale, temporarily suspend bidding and re-sell items that were affected by a malfunction. The decision of Auctioneer is final.
Our site utilizes multiple bidding options. Pre-bidding, live bidding, and automatic bidding. Automatic Bidding (Max Bid) makes bidding convenient allowing you to enter the maximum bid amount that you are willing to bid on an item. Based on your Account Preferences for notification, you may be notified whenever your auto bid increases &/or when it is exceeded. Your max bid will not “skip” to the maximum amount. The max bid will advance up only with competing bids until either the item completes with you as the high bidder, or until your auto bid has been exceeded by another bid. If another bidder already has an auto bid in place when you place your auto bid, the (2) competing auto bids will continue to increment until either the lower auto bid is maxed out; or if both auto bid amounts are the same the auto bid that was placed first will become winning position of the bid. A maximum bid is kept confidential, and Bidder authorizes Auctioneer to place bids on his/her behalf up to the amount of the maximum bid. Anyone bidding for an account other than his or her own must obtain a separate bid number for that account. The bidder offering the highest bid accepted by the Auctioneer shall be the “Purchaser” of the lot being sold and may not retract his bid. Purchaser will not be entitled to any adjustment, allowance, rescission, or damages or any other remedy regarding the condition of any item purchased.
Posted closing times and displays of TriStar Auction Group’s current time are approximate. TriStar reserves the right to close early or extend auctions at any time at its discretion. It is strongly recommended that bids be placed early to avoid losing out due to an ill-timed, last-minute bid. All times are based on the Time Zone where the auction is located. During some timed auctions on this site an auto extend of timing will be in place. The auto extend on this website is a feature that does NOT allow an item to sell at the end of the auction until there is 1-5 minutes of bidding inactivity.
Auctioneer reserves the right to add or withdraw property from the auction, and/or regroup items. Auctioneer reserves the right to sell property absolute or with reserve, at Sellers discretion. The Seller does have the right to make the final bid and the Auctioneer does have the right to bid on behalf of the Seller. The auctioneer reserves the right to open the bid as the result of a tie bid or discrepancies in the bid. Buyer assumes full responsibility of property at time of purchase, and all risk of loss and damage to property. All titles will be assigned to buyer.
Risk of Loss:
All risk transfers to the purchaser at the fall of gavel. Purchaser agrees to obtain full liability insurance coverage for the item as may be required by law.
Tennessee Sales Tax:
A 9.75% tax rate (2.75% local & 7.0% state) will be applied to ALL taxable items. All dealers must present certificate of resale upon registration to bid in order to claim exemption of sales tax.
Failure to Settle:
Any purchase not paid in full by the 6th calendar day from date of sale will be considered in default and will incur additional fees of $100 per day. In the event Purchaser fails to settle or fails to comply with any Terms, Auctioneer shall take possession of all Purchases and, at Auctioneer’s sole discretion, have the right to resell such Purchases without notice to Purchaser. Should resale take place, original Purchaser will be responsible for any deficiency arising from the resale, a 10% commission to Auctioneer, any failure to settle and/or storage fees and any legal costs incurred. To the extent permitted by law, you will also be required to pay Auctioneers’ collection expenses, including costs associated with the use of a collection agency, court costs and reasonable attorney’s fees.

Upon being the successful high bidder, once payment has been received in full your name and contact may be sent to the seller of the items for arrangement of pickup. All items remaining after that date will incur a storage fee of $25 per day per item. Storage fees will continue per day up to 30 days after original purchase date. Items remaining on Auction Yard or place of sale past 30 days will be considered abandoned and Auctioneer may resell all items per terms under Failure to Settle section above.
