Property listed in the auction sale catalog shall be offered for sale or sold by BTM Industrial, and any consignor of such property for whom BTM acts as agent. BTM Industrial strongly recommends to all bidders to thoroughly inspect all items before the auction.
All Items are listed to the best of our ability, but are sold AS-IS with no warranty expressed or implied!
Under these Terms and Conditions, the term “Bidder” and “Purchaser” shall be used interchangeable and be one of the same.
1. Bidder acknowledges that an auction site is a potentially dangerous place. Flammable, noxious, corrosive and pressurized substances may be present, heavy equipment may be in operation, and electric circuits may be live. Every person at the auction site before, during and after the auction sale, shall be deemed to be there at his/her own risk with notice of the condition of the premises, the activities on the premises, and conduct of third parties; and the bidder shall so advise his/her agents and employees. No person shall have any claim against BTM Industrial, its consignors, agents, employees, directors or principals for any injuries sustained or for damages to or loss of personal property, which may occur from any cause whatsoever.
2. As used herein, the term “Bid Price” means the price at which a lot is knocked down to the Purchaser, and the term “Purchase Price” means the aggregate of (a) the Bid Price, (b) the Buyer’s Premium and other surcharges, if any, and (c) unless Purchaser is exempt by law from the payment thereof, any Federal, Provincial, State or local sales taxes (or compensating use tax of another State), and any other applicable taxes.

3. A sale to the highest Bidder shall be complete upon the auctioneer’s call, with the highest Bidder purchasing the offered lot, in accordance with all the conditions set forth herein, including Purchaser (a) assuming full risk of loss and responsibility thereof, see Point 8 below, (b) immediately making a deposit of not less than twenty-five percent (25%) of the Purchase Price, and (c) paying to BTM the balance of the Purchase Price in full within forty- eight (48) hours after the auction sale for all lots purchased. No lot may be removed until the Purchase Price is paid in full for all lots purchased. To prevent miss-delivery and inconvenience in settlement of a purchase, no lot may be transferred prior to removal by the Purchaser.

If the conditions herein or any other applicable condition(s) are not complied with, in addition to other remedies available by law to BTM Industrial and/or its consignors, including but without limitation, the right to hold the Purchaser liable for the Purchase Price, BTM may, at its option, either (a) cancel the sale in part or in full, retaining as liquidated damages all payments made by Purchaser or (b) resell the property, either publicly or privately, after three (3) days notice to the Purchaser and for the account and risk of the Purchaser, and in such event the Purchaser shall be liable to BTM for any deficiency if the resale is less than the Purchase Price, plus all costs, including warehousing, the pro-rate share of expenses of both sales including reasonable attorneys fees, BTMs’ commission, plus all other charges due here under and incidental damages suffered by
BTM or its consignor.
