Auction Close Policy:
Winning Bidders will receive a complete invoice within 24 hours after close of auction. Winning Bidders must contact Surplus Auction Management at info@SurplusAuctionManagement.com within 3 days following notification of winning bid to make final payment arrangements. Pickup or shipping arrangements will also be made at this time. Winning bidders may be required to sign a liability release form releasing the existing public agency owner of these assets from future liability as a condition of close of the auction.
Surplus Auction Management accepts payment through Paypal with a confirmed address, wire/bank transfer, or USPS Money Order ONLY. We regret that we are unable to accept personal checks. If full payment is not received within 4 days for general items (7 days for automobiles) of auction close, Surplus Auction Management reserves the right to cancel the transaction and sell the item to another interested party. A Non-Paying Bidder alert will be filed. Surplus Auction Management will invoice the appropriate sales tax if required. Provision of a valid resale certificate or tax-exempt certification with payment may exempt buyers from sales tax.
If shipping and handling are offered by Surplus Auction Management for the item(s), the terms of proposed shipping and handling will be outlined in the Item Description and/or in the “Shipping, payment details and return policy” section of the eBay listing. A small handling fee will be included for packaging materials etc. over and above the calculated shipping costs. Surplus Auction Management may ship via FedEx, UPS, or United States Postal Service. Surplus Auction Management reserves the right to substitute an equivalent service from another carrier to better meet the needs of a particular situation. - continued >
If the items for sale are too large and/or heavy for the carriers listed above, the Item Description will state “Local Pickup Preferred” and/or "Freight Shipping." If local pickup is not possible, Buyer is responsible for both shipping arrangements and expenses. Surplus Auction Management will include an additional quote for boxing and/or palletizing in the Item Description. If additional preparations are required (i.e. crating), Buyer is solely responsible for those additional requirements. Surplus Auction Management may provide the contact information of a preferred logistics provider to assist the Buyer to arrange freight shipment. All shipping arrangements must be made in advance in coordination with Surplus Auction Management’ scheduled pickup calendar. If the Item Description states "For Local Pickup Only", Surplus Auction Management will not prepare this item for transport. All handling will be the responsibility of the Buyer. Items listed by Surplus Auction Management are stored at school district locations. If an item is to be picked up, Surplus Auction Management reserves the right to charge a $50 fee plus per diem storage charges if the buyer or his/her shipping/handling company/representative is not present at the pickup day and time specified in the listing or as otherwise agreed to in advance by Surplus Auction Management. If attempts have not been made by Buyer to contact Surplus Auction Management regarding pickup or shipping arrangements within 7 days of auction close (prior to published pickup date), Surplus Auction Management reserves the right to consider the sale to be static and may resell the item without refund to the Buyer.
