Specific sale terms & conditions:

                                TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALE

As Is

1.  ALL ASSETS ARE SOLD AS IS, WHERE IS AND WITH ALL FAULTS. ANY EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES INCLUDING THOSE AS TO THE NATURE, QUALITY, QUANTITY, VALUE OR CONDITION OF ANY ASSET, MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR NON-INFRINGEMENT ARE HEREBY EXCLUDED TO THE GREATEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. The Buyer acknowledges that any software or intellectual property rights attaching to an asset or assets may not be the property of the Seller or capable of transfer by the Seller. Neither the Seller nor GoIndustry DoveBid is in any way authorising the use by the Buyer of such software or intellectual property rights and any use of such software or exploitation of such intellectual property rights shall be at the Buyer's sole risk. 

2.Illustrations, pictures or videos posted on GoIndustry DoveBid’s website or otherwise provided by the Seller or GoIndustry DoveBid are for the convenience of the Buyers only.  GoIndustry DoveBid has used its reasonable endeavours to ensure that the description of each asset(s) appearing on the Site is accurate, but the Buyer relies upon such description at its own risk. Buyers should satisfy themselves prior to the sale as to the condition of the asset and should exercise and rely on their judgment as to whether the asset accords with its description at their own risk.  Subject to the obligations accepted by GoIndustry DoveBid under these Terms and Conditions, neither the Seller nor GoIndustry DoveBid nor any of their respective employees or agents are responsible for errors of description or for the genuineness or authenticity of any asset


3.  By submitting an offer, the Buyer represents, warrants and undertakes that it has the authority and capacity to make such an offer and purchase the assets and that any offer that it makes constitutes an irrevocable offer to buy the assets for the full offer amount upon these terms and conditions and such additional terms and conditions (if any) as may be imposed by the Seller.  For the purposes of these terms and conditions, we refer to any person or entity registering to offer or offering to buy goods as a "buyer" regardless of whether any contract of sale is concluded.

Payment terms

4. A discounted Buyer's premium of 16% of the bid price will be added to the purchase price for each asset for Buyers who pay in the form of cash, cashier's check, company check (with a letter of guarantee) or wire transfer within 72 hours from receipt of GoIndustry DoveBid’s invoice; the full Buyer's premium of 18% shall apply for Buyers who pay via credit card and all other Buyers that do not remit payment within 72 hours from receipt of GoIndustry DoveBid’s invoice. 

5. Collection of applicable sales, value added or similar taxes will be in accordance with the laws of the jurisdiction in which the assets are located. The Buyer is advised to seek its own tax advice. The Buyer agrees that invoices may be issued in electronic form by email or otherwise.

6. Full payment of the balance of the purchase price is due by the date stipulated on the invoice and in any event prior to removal of any purchased assets. In the event that a Buyer fails to pay the entire purchase price (in addition to the Buyer's premium and any applicable sales, value added or similar tax) within the time specified by GoIndustry DoveBid or otherwise fails to comply with these Terms and Conditions, GoIndustry DoveBid and the Seller will retain the deposit as liquidated damages without notice. GoIndustry DoveBid and the Seller reserve the right to resell such assets without notice, and the defaulting Buyer shall be liable to GoIndustry DoveBid and the Seller for any resulting deficiency, including costs incurred in storing and reselling such assets. 


7. GoIndustry DoveBid shall have no responsibility to disconnect utilities to the sold asset, including electric, gas, waste and water lines. It is the Buyer's sole responsibility to arrange and pay for the removal, shipment and insurance of purchased assets. Also, it is the Buyer's responsibility to provide, and/or ensure their agent(s) performing removals on their behalf provide, upon demand, evidence of valid insurance policies with reliable insurance companies, providing the types of coverage and in the amounts more particularly described in the Sample Required Insurance Certificate located on in the Shipping Information section of GoIndustry DoveBid’s website; and such other insurance as may be required by any governmental authority, including workers' compensation insurance. Removal shall be conducted responsibly and with due care for the Seller's premises.  GoIndustry DoveBid reserves the right on any sale to require that all Buyers utilize the services of the movers/shippers/riggers to those listed on GoIndustry DoveBid’s website under “Directory of Shippers” and/or those listed on the sale website as “exclusive, approved” for a particular sale event. The Buyer shall restore and repair all real and personal property that is altered or damaged as a result of the removal of purchased assets. If the Buyer does not remove an asset within the announced check-out period, GoIndustry DoveBid and the Seller may, in their sole discretion, deem the asset to have been abandoned by the Buyer and the Buyer will have no further rights with respect to the asset. Notwithstanding the foregoing, GoIndustry DoveBid and the Seller reserve the right to charge the Buyer for the costs of storage beyond the check-out period. 

8. The Buyer acknowledges that the Seller's facility is a potentially dangerous place. Flammable, noxious, corrosive and pressurized substances may be present. Heavy equipment may be operated, and electrical circuits may be live. Every person enters the site at his or her own risk with notice of the condition of the premises and the activities that will be or have been conducted on the premises. The Buyer shall so advise their agents and employees. No person shall have any claim against GoIndustry DoveBid, the Seller or their respective agents or employees for any injuries sustained or for damages to or loss of property that may occur at the site. Nothing in this clause shall limit or exclude liability for death or personal injury resulting from the negligence of GoIndustry DoveBid or the Seller.

9. The Buyer acknowledges that neither Seller nor its appointed representative(s) are obliged to give any other support or owes any other performance other than those described in these Terms and Conditions.  In particular, the Buyer acknowledges that neither the Seller nor GoIndustry DoveBid will give any start-up assistance or trouble shooting support during re-assembling and start-up of the assets unless otherwise agreed in writing.
