Neither LAP, any client, owner of the Goods, consignor or anyone acting on their behalf, make any warranties or representations of any kind or nature with respect to the property, its condition, condition suitable for safe operation or its value, and in no event shall they be responsible for the correctness of description, genuineness, attribution, provenance, title, chain of title, authenticity, authorship and completeness. All Goods are sold on an individual lot basis and not in conjunction with or contingent upon Buyer or Bidder winning or taking delivery of any other lot or Goods unless otherwise agreed to in writing by LAP.  No bid at the auction or payment of winning bids shall be in any way contingent upon the winning Bidder or Buyer’s outside financing or internal company approval post auction sale. PROSPECTIVE BIDDERS ARE STRONGLY URGED TO CONDUCT THEIR OWN INSPECTION OF THE LOTS THROUGH PRIVATE OR OPEN INSPECTION DATES MADE AVAILABLE TO ALL PROSPECTIVE BIDDERS. No statement (oral or written), including any catalog description or photographs at any auction, or elsewhere shall be deemed such a warranty or representation, or any assumption of responsibility of any kind or nature, whatsoever.

For online winning bidders, LAP sends winning bidder notice/invoices to bidders to the email provided at registration. Bidspotter may send this information on LAP’s behalf. No other communication from any party will be deemed an award of winning bid or invoice. All payments must be in the form of cash, cashier's or certified check or federal wire transfer of immediately available funds.

LAP may remove any party or individual from the auction site for theft, attempted theft, unsafe behavior and harassment or unsafe work practices with no guarantee for re-entry to the auction site. LAP does not pack, ship, store, crate or rig items or Goods. In some instances, LAP may collect fees on behalf of a third party service provider. Any cost for rigging, machinery moving, or third party service providers invoiced by or collected by LAP for services, removal or rigging on behalf of any third party, rigger, machinery mover or contractor is done strictly as a convenience to Buyers and is remitted 100% to the party rendering the services.  LAP’s invoicing and collection of such fees as a convenience or listing of third party service provider or riggers approved to work at the auction site in no way whatsoever represents any warranty, guarantee or implied liability of LAP related to any third party service provider, rigger, removal party, removal of Goods or endorsement of the listed third party service provider, riggers or exclusive rigger. LAP shall not be liable or responsible for any action or actions of any machinery mover, machinery rigger, contractor, third party Transportation Company, or for proper or timely delivery of Goods to Buyer. Buyers may either pick up Goods at the designated auction site personally or can contract with a third party agent to manage the removal process for them. Before Goods can be removed by an Agent, Agent must provide LAP with (1) proof of payment in full (Paid In Full Invoice) and (2) an "Agent Release Authorization" form which allows LAP to release items to a third party contractor for shipping, crating or packing purposes. If an exclusive rigger(s) is appointed to the auction, Buyer is urged to contact any third party service provider, the listed riggers or exclusive rigger(s) prior to bidding to determine in Buyer’s sole opinion and discretion that such party is fit to perform the services or removal and loading of Buyer’s Goods and to understand the fees and services to be rendered. When an exclusive rigger is assigned, buyer will abide to the posted fees. No exceptions. 
    2. Goods that cannot be removed by hand carry from the auction site, or premises, or that requires any utility disconnection, or tools to remove Goods, must be removed by a qualified, insured rigger, approved by LAP. Before any removal, Buyer must provide LAP with a certificate of insurance from the rigger, which certificate must be in form, scope and content acceptable to LAP in LAP's sole discretion.

LAP will provide parties required to be listed as additional insured upon inquiry by the rigger or removal company to gain access to auction site for removal. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Buyer shall be responsible to restore and repair all real and personal property and fixtures that are altered or damaged as a result of Buyer's removal of the Goods to a condition substantially similar to the pre-removal condition. LAP shall review the repair and make a determination in its sole discretion, whether the repair is acceptable to LAP.

Risk of loss on any Goods shall pass to the Buyer upon payment in full to LAP of all sums due from Buyer in respect to the Goods.

Buyer must make all requests for adjustments in writing to LAP before any item is removed from the premises where the auction is conducted.
  11. LAP shall not be responsible for any damages, loss or theft of Goods or delays contemplated in Section 7 of these Terms and Conditions. Without limiting the foregoing, LAP shall not be responsible for damages or losses caused by strikes, civil disorders, acts of nature, government delay or imposed sanctions, machinery movers, riggers or acts of God.
  12. If for any reason there is a final determination made by LAP that LAP is unable to deliver clear title or ability to remove any Goods purchased by Buyer, LAP'S sole liability shall be to return all sums paid by Buyer to LAP in respect of such Goods. Buyer/Bidder hereby agrees that under all possible circumstances, LAP's maximum liability in any and all auctions and sales transactions is hereby limited to refunding the purchase price actually paid by the Buyer or Bidder for the applicable sale or auction transaction.
  13. Minimum or Reserve Prices. LAP, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to establish a reserve or minimum price on any Goods without having to announce, post, or publish notice to attendees and buyers at any auction.

In the event of a dispute among Bidders, or tie bid, LAP may, in its sole discretion, either accept what it deems to be the final bid or re-open the lot to solicit further bids on the item in dispute. No returns or refunds will be permitted, unless authorized by the LAP in writing.
  16. LAP reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to sell items advertised as a public auction sale, on a piece-by-piece basis or as a complete lot.
