Extension Feature: This auction features a bid extension. This feature will leave the bidding open for any item that has received a bid within the last 3 minutes from the last recorded bid time, even if the ending time has been reached. This feature has been added to eliminate sniping and to make the online bidding process more like a 'live' auction.
The auction will start to close Thursday, August 24th, 2023, at 2:00 PM EST.
Buyer’s Premium: An 18% Buyer’s premium will be added to the winning bid of each item purchased to determine the purchase price.
Sales tax: 8.9% sales tax will be added to the purchase price of each item unless proper tax exemption documentation is furnished by the buyer.

All larger payments must be made by wire transfer. Payment must be received by Friday, August 25th, 2023, at 5:00 PM EST. After this deadline, the assets will be deemed abandoned and will be resold.
Bidding: All bids must be submitted using the online bidding system. Buyer is responsible for confirming their bids for accuracy. Selecting the Review Bids function at any time may do this. Bidders will receive outbid notifications via email until the last day of the auction, after which time you must log in to the bidding site to confirm your bids. Auctioneer provides Internet bidding as a service to Buyer using a Third Party Bidding System. Under no circumstances shall Buyer hold Auctioneer liable for system failures resulting in Buyer’s bid not being properly submitted. This auction uses staggered closing times and dynamic closing. This means 1 item per minute will close in numerical order, and bids received in the final minutes before an item’s scheduled closing time will extend the bidding an additional 3 minutes. Auctioneer reserves the right to add to, group, withdraw or re-catalog items in this auction, adjust minimum bids and/or reserve prices, and extend or shorten closing times.
Representations: All items are being sold As-Is with no warranty. Auctioneer shall not be responsible for the correct description, authenticity, genuineness of or defect in any lot and makes no warranty in connection therewith. Onsite inspection of items being sold is recommended. Auctioneer makes every effort to provide accurate information about the items being sold. However, neither Auctioneer nor its Client will assume responsibility for Buyer’s bidding errors. It is Buyer’s full responsibility to confirm the accuracy of items offered for sale. Buyers are recommended to inspect all items. Descriptions and photos are offered as a guide only. Do not rely solely on photos to make buying decisions; be sure to read descriptions and personally inspect the assets. Auctioneer shall not be held responsible for such errors as posting the wrong photo for an item. When in doubt about the condition of an item, please bid accordingly.
All Sales Final: A successful bid at auction, whether live or online, constitutes a legally binding contract of sale. All sales are final. There will be no refunds, returns, or exchanges.
Removal: Asset removal and loading must be accomplished at Buyer’s expense and effort. There is no loading assistance available at sale sites. All materials that can be removed by hand/ hand truck/ cart, etc. may be removed by the buyer during pickup times scheduled. Buyers are responsible for all aspects of removal and agree to remove all items at their own risk.
Any holes or other types of openings in the building walls or roof created when removing an item must be patched with plywood and caulk to prevent water from entering the building. These items include but are not limited to the walk-in cooler/ freezer and vent hoods. If an item includes components inside and outside the building, the removal of equipment from the roof is subject to safe work practice approval and the installation and sealing of sturdy plywood sufficient to prevent weather intrusion. There is no internal or external roof access; the roof can only be accessed by ladder or bucket truck provided by the buyer or their hired help.
Purchasers of large equipment are responsible for arranging and paying for professional rigging and removal services. The following restaurant equipment mover has indicated an interest in deinstalling and loading out assets from this auction. However, the employment of any vendor is at the discretion of the purchasing party. Neither the auction company nor the seller can take responsibility for the actions of these firms. The contact details are provided for buyer convenience only.
