Welcome to the Keith Machinery Corp.’s online auction platform. The following terms and conditions are binding and apply to all online auctions:
1) Keith Machinery sells everything “AS IS” and “WHERE IS” without any representation or warranty whatsoever, as to quality, condition, mileage, OSHA safety equipment, description, merchantability or fitness for any particular purpose.
2) Registration and Eligibility. The Services and the Website are only available to persons with the legal capacity to enter into this Agreement. Keith Machinery may, at its sole discretion, refuse to accept a person’s (or entity’s) registration, and may, at any time after accepting registration, refuse to permit a person’s (or entity’s) continuing use of the Services and the Website for any reason.
3) Payment and Asset removal. Each successful Buyer agrees to pay a 25% deposit toward the purchase price which is due and payable immediately following the successful bid and authorizes Keith Machinery to charge Buyer’s credit card for the amount of such deposit. If a Buyer fails to make a timely deposit, the assets in question may be resold without notice. Full payment of the purchase price is due at the earlier of (i) 48 hours after the Buyer has received an invoice, or (ii) the close of the third business day after the subject auction. Without limiting the foregoing, full payment is due prior to the removal or shipment of purchased assets. In the event that the Buyer fails to pay the entire purchase price (in addition to the buyer’s premium and any applicable tax) within the time specified by Keith Machinery or otherwise fails to comply with these Terms and Conditions, Keith Machinery will retain the Buyer’s payment(s) as liquidated damages without notice. In addition, Keith Machinery reserves the right to resell such items without notice, and the defaulting Buyer shall be liable to Keith Machinery for any resulting deficiency and costs; including but not limited to, any and all costs incurred in removing, storing and reselling such assets. Keith Machinery will announce the removal, or “check-out” period on the day of the auction. Keith Machinery shall have no responsibility with respect to disconnecting utilities to the sold asset, including electric, gas, waste, and water lines. It is the Buyer’s sole responsibility to arrange and pay for rigging and shipment of purchased. Removal shall be conducted responsibly and with due care for the premises. The Buyer shall restore and repair all real and personal property that is altered or damaged as a result of the removal of purchased items. If the Buyer does not remove an item within the announced check-out period, the Buyer will be deemed to have abandoned the item and the Buyer will have no further rights with respect to the item. No claims of any kind shall be allowed after assets have been removed by the Buyer.
4) Buyer’s Premium. Keith Machinery, in its discretion, charge a Buyer’s Premium or other service charge on assets sold. All such charges will be indicated in the relevant auction brochure, or asset detail page, or clearly marked area of the Website. Keith Machinery shall charge and collect from each successful bidder a 18% Buyer’s Premium for each sale at the auction, in addition to the purchase price at bid. Purchasers who pay in the form of cash, cashier’s check, or wire transfer, shall receive a discount from the Buyer’s Premium equal to 3% of the purchase price.
