REGISTRATION: All information provided by bidder during the registration process must be current, complete, and accurate. Bidders must be 18 years of age or older. Bruce and LeAn Auction Co., at its sole discretion, may deny registration to any person or entity.
BUYER'S PREMIUM: Unless a specific auction states otherwise, a 13% buyer's premium will be charged on all items and lots. Every bidder pays the same buyer's premium and should bid accordingly. For example, if you bid $100 on an item at the auction your final total will be $113 for the item on your auction invoice.
SUSPENSION / PERMANENT BAN: A Bidder will be suspended or permanently banned from the Site for providing false or fraudulent information when registering. A Bidder will be permanently banned from this Site for failing to honor an auction bid made under that Bidder's bid number.
PAYMENT: Buyer will receive an invoice via electronic mail after the close of the auction. Payment for purchases must be made by Visa, MasterCard, or Discover, unless otherwise noted in a specific auction's terms and conditions. Any item or lot not paid for in full by the stated deadline will resort to suspension or permanent ban of bidder number. Ownership of your items will revert to Owner/Seller who may re-sell or dispose of items at Seller's discretion
SALES TAX: All sales are subject to appropriate state Sales Tax laws. If Bidder claims an exemption from sales tax, it is the Bidder's responsibility to provide the appropriate resale or exemption certificate for each auction at which the Bidder makes a purchase.
ITEM DESCRIPTIONS: The descriptions of items or lots appearing in the auction and in advertising are believed to be correct. Nevertheless, neither those descriptions nor any oral statements made by Owner/Seller or Bruce and LeAn Auction concerning any items or lots shall be construed as a warranty either express or implied. ITEMS AND LOTS ARE SOLD AS IS - WHERE IS and WITH ALL FAULTS. Bidder acknowledges that all items and lots were available for inspection prior to the auction and, by these terms, Bruce and LeAn Auction and Owner/Seller strongly encouraged Bidder to carefully inspect each item or lot to determine the nature, quality, condition, quantity and size of the item or lot. Bidder relied solely on personal inspection and not on information listed on the Site or otherwise provided by Bruce and LeAn Auction or Owner/Seller. The IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANT ABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, ARE SPECIFICALLY EXCLUDED from this sale and transaction and shall NOT apply to the merchandise that is the subject of these sales. Bruce and LeAn Auction does not have control over the items or lots that are posted in the Site, and cannot guarantee the authenticity and quality of said product. Auctioneer is not responsible for the actions the Sellers and Buyers take before, during, and after the auction. Use of this site is at your own risk. Some states do not allow the disclaimer of implied warranties, so the foregoing disclaimer may not apply to you.
ALL AUCTIONS WITH RESERVE: All auctions of Bruce and LeAn Auction are with reserve. Per the Auctioneer Administrative Rules of the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation, an auction "with reserve" is one in which the seller or his agent reserves the right to establish a minimum bid, accept or reject any and all bids, and withdraw the property at any time prior to the announcement of the completion of the sale by the auctioneer. Sellers reserve the right to bid on all auctions. Auctioneers and their employees reserve the right to bid on their own or the Seller's behalf.
REMOVAL: Merchandise becomes the full responsibility of Buyer at the close of auction, and Buyer assumes all risk of loss and damage to property until removed from sale premises. The date by which all merchandise must be removed from the premises is posted on an auction-by-auction basis. THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS TO REMOVAL DEADLINES!! Bidders who fail to pick up purchases by the removal deadline will incur storage fees in the amount of $10.00 per day per item. Items remaining 30 days after removal deadline will be considered as abandoned, and ownership will revert to Seller, who may resell or dispose of items. Any funds paid will be forfeited for failure to abide by the terms of sale.
ADJUSTMENTS: No adjustment will be made with regard to merchandise inventory after the item or lot has been removed from the sale premises, or after the removal deadline whether or not the property has been removed. Bruce and LeAn Auction reserves the right, for any reason, in its sole discretion, to terminate, change or suspend any aspect of the auction sale.
DISPUTE BETWEEN BIDDERS: The final high bidder shall be designated at the end of each item or lot. If a dispute arises between two or more Bidders, Bruce and LeAn Auction reserves the right to reopen bidding. Bruce and LeAn Auction’s designation of the Buyer shall be final.
INDEMNITY: Bidder accepts responsibility for and agrees to indemnify, defend and hold harmless each Owner/Seller and Bruce and LeAn Auction and their employees, governing body, officers, owners, affiliates, subsidiaries, directors, agents and representatives from and against any and all claims, losses, damages, liabilities, judgments, fees, costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees and expenses) related to, arising from or associated with Buyer's, his agents or representatives, use of the Site, including but not limited to personal injuries or property damage incurred on the sale premises or during removal and transport of any auction items or lots, and arising out of, based upon, or resulting from any breach or violation by Bidder of this Site User Agreement or any use by Bidder of the Site or as a result of a dispute with another Bidder.

Once you place a bid, and if you win, you will be obligated to buy the product at the said price you indicated as your bid. Placing a bid on this Site, and winning, then not paying for the product is illegal in most states, and prosecution can result.

AUTO EXTEND FEATURE: If an auction receives a bid in the last five minutes, the ending time for that auction will automatically be extended by five minutes.
