CATALOG / LOTS
Wallace Land Company has put forth every effort in preparing the catalog for this auction to provide accurate descriptions of all items. All lots are sold AS-IS, WHERE-IS, with all faults, imperfections and errors of description. Due diligence is the responsibility of the bidder/buyer, and it is the bidder’s responsibility to determine the exact condition of each item. Printed statements or descriptions by staff are provided in good faith and are matters of opinion. Bidders are encouraged to attend the scheduled inspection(s).
PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING:
A. The Cargo Trailer and 2005 Ford Explorer have special payment terms that are slightly different than the terms for the rest of the personal property. Please see “PAYMENTS” below for details on payment terms for these two lots.
B. The Cargo Trailer does NOT HAVE A TITLE. The purchaser, if an Illinois resident, will have to apply for “provisional title”. Please refer any questions regarding “provisional title” to the Illinois Secretary of State’s office.
BIDDER REGISTRATON & VERIFICATION
A. REGISTRATION: In order to better serve our customers, all bidders must provide their name, address, daytime phone number, and email address at which they can be contacted. This is to insure good communication between Wallace Land Company, LLC and the bidder throughout any transaction. For online bidding, we require you to register with a credit/debit card. The card information is kept confidential and is NOT automatically charged when you are a successful bidder. Information gathered is for the sole purpose and use of Wallace Land Company, LLC. Wallace Land Company gathers all emails and adds them to an email listing available only to Wallace Land Company, LLC. You have the right to unsubscribe at any time.
B. BIDDER VERIFICATION: Bidding rights are provisional, and if identity verification is questionable, Wallace Land Company, LLC has the right to reject the registration, and bidding activity will be terminated. The Seller and Wallace Land Company, LLC reserve the right to preclude any person from bidding if there is any question as to the person's credentials, mental fitness, etc. Bidders agree to keep their username and password confidential as they are responsible for ANY and ALL activity involving their account. If the registered bidder's user name is offensive to Wallace Land Company, LLC or in their sole opinion detrimental to Bidding Activity, then Wallace Land Company, LLC reserves the right to remove the bidder from bidding or unilaterally change the username with notification to the Bidder. When using the website you must obey any and all local state and federal laws. Violations will result in termination of web site use privileges.
A. MAXIMUM BID FEATURE: When you bid your maximum bid, the current bid price does not automatically advance to your maximum bid. Another bidder has to bid to increase the current price and the computer will automatically bid up to your maximum in the increments specified.
B. AUCTION END TIMES: Wallace Land Company, LLC online only auctions are timed events and all bidding will close at specified time. However, our auctions also have what is called an “Auto Extend” feature. Any bid placed within the final 5 minutes of an auction results in the auction automatically extending 5 additional minutes. The bidding will extend in 5 minute increments from the time the last bid is placed until there are no more bids, and the lot sits idle for 5 minutes. Therefore, the auction will not close until all bidding parties are satisfied. This ensures no one can be outbid in the last seconds without having another opportunity to bid again.
C. TECHNICAL ISSUES: In the event there are technical difficulties related to the server, software, internet or any other online auction-related technologies, Wallace Land Company, LLC reserves the right to extend bidding, continue the bidding, or close the bidding. Neither the company providing the software, nor Wallace Land Company, LLC shall be held responsible for a missed bid or the failure of the software to function properly for any reason.
D. CONDUCT OF THE AUCTION: Conduct of the auction and increments of bidding are at the direction and discretion of Wallace Land Company, LLC. Wallace Land Company, LLC reserves the right to reject any and all bids for any reason and also reserves the right to cancel this auction, or remove any item or lot from this auction prior to the close of bidding. All decisions of Wallace Land Company are final. Your bid on this auction indicates both an understanding and an acceptance of the terms of this contractual agreement between you, as the Bidder, and both Wallace Land Company, LLC and the Seller.
