Please Read Carefully Prior to Bidding
The Following Policies apply to the purchase of Auction Items only.
I HAVE READ AND UNDERSTAND ALL OF THE FOLLOWING TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THE AUCTION.
I HEREBY AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE FOLLOWING TERMS AND CONDITIONS.
I FURTHER AGREE TO BE RESPONSIBLE AND PAY FOR ALL PURCHASES.
Bidding on Items
You must be a registered user to bid on items. By bidding, you are stating that you are ready and willing to purchase that item for your bid amount, plus any shipping charges disclosed in the listing. If you are outbid, or your bid does not meet the reserve price, you are under no obligation to buy. But in all other cases, you are entering a contract to buy the item, and to deliver payment within the time period specified (48 business hours from auction closing). If you cannot pay please don’t bid. Your bids are final and non-retractable. We will not accept e-mail bids.
All persons who wish to bid in the auction or want to purchase must register by creating an online account. To register, the Bidder must provide all of the registration information requested. Bidders must be 18 years of age or older and have a shipping address in the Contiguous US. Rubio Monocoat USA reserves the right to refuse to register or admit any person at its sole discretion. Invoices and correspondence relating to purchases will be sent in accordance with the information on the bidder’s registration.
Rubio Monocoat USA will set the starting bid on each item. The Starting Bid is designed to encourage bidding. If an item is incorrectly described online, Rubio Monocoat USA reserves the right to rectify such error and email to all active bidders the correct description.
All Lots are being sold with a “Reserve,” a price below which the Lot will not be sold. Any bid submitted below the reserve will not result in a valid bid. Reserves may be decreased or removed at any time.
All rights granted herein are personal and exclusive to the registered bidder, and may not be assigned or transferred to another person or entity, by operation of law or otherwise. Any attempt to assign or transfer any such rights shall be void and unenforceable. No third party may rely on any benefit or right conferred herein or granted to any Bidder. If you have any questions, please contact Rubio Monocoat USA immediately.
