Terms & Conditions

READ THESE TERMS CAREFULLY BEFORE BIDDING


IDENTIFICATION: When you register with DownsizeSale Auctioneers Inc – or referred throughout this agreement as “We”, “Us” or “Our” – will collect some basic information about you which will be used for identity verification purposes. We also gather credit card information which we may use to process your winning bid shortly after an auction has been completed. Here is our privacy statement:


REMOVAL/PICK UP: PLEASE NOTE THAT WE DO NOT HAVE SHIPPING SUPPORT. PLEASE DO NOT PARTICIPATE IN BIDDING IF YOU CANNOT AVAIL YOURSELF IN PERSON (or make arrangements for) PICKUP AT OUR PUBLISHED PICKUP LOCATION/TIME/DATE. Failure to pick up the items will lead Us into concluding that those items have been abandoned, a decision that will compel Us to revoke your bidding privileges and forfeit the refund. 


WE DO NOT PROVIDE packing material, tools, or means of transport to move the purchased items. ARRANGE YOUR OWN MEANS to move larger items. ALL DAMAGES ON THE PROPERTY will be liable to you if it is established that they directly resulted from your activities or activities of your help and therefore, the repair costs will be charged to your declared credit card. The pickup venue is a busy and risky environment, DO NOT BRING SMALL CHILDREN TO THE VENUE. For all invoices with $200 or more, the buyer will be asked to show the credit card they used to purchase the items and the photo ID before the items are dispatched. 


BILLING/INVOICING: UNLESS YOUWIN, REGISTRATION IS FREE and will involve NO CHARGES ON YOUR CREDIT CARD. A hold (pre-authorization) for $0.01 will be done to validate your credit card but this will be dropped within a few days because it is not a real charge. If you are a winner at the end of the auction session, We will charge your credit with a high bid price and a 10 percent     BUYER’s PREMIUM in addition to sales taxes. Invoices will be availed to the winning bidders in their profile shortly after the auction has closed. 


FINALITY OF BIDS: You are restricted from removing or retracting your bid once you've submitted although you are allowed to review your bid(s) in the 'My Bids' section of your profile.


CLAIMS: You are encouraged to INSPECT YOUR ITEMS at pickup and IMMEDIATELY inform us of any issues relating to the condition of the item(s) (while considering the fact that you are buying used items provided in AS IS WHERE state/condition). By leaving the pickup venue with the item(s), you acknowledge that you are satisfied with the condition and number of the items. NO CLAIMS WILL BE PERMITTED ONCE YOU HAVE YOUR ITEMS FROM THE PICKUP SITE as we cannot establish the real cause of the damage or any other issue on the item. If necessary, bring an expert with you to validate the purchased items before taking them away. We will not be responsible for omissions or any other acts of negligence by the buyer. 


CONDITIONS OF SOLD ARTICLES: We sell items in “AS IS, WHERE IS” condition hence we cannot guarantee the regulatory compliance or safety of the items in Our catalog, which may include child and infant products. All items on sale are devoid of Certificate Of Authenticity UNLESS such or any other authentication is availed. 


Catalog ERRORS: In case the description of an item is found to not match the image of the lot, its description will take precedence. BEFORE BIDDING, you are advised to review the images and descriptions to establish the condition of the item.
TRESPASSING: You should understand that being at the premises of the Seller at any time outside the pickup or pickup time will amount to trespassing. Moreover, you understand that you are forbidden contacting the seller whether directly or indirectly. Any buyer found trespassing may be investigated by authorities and/or have their bidding privileges revoked. 


SOFT CLOSE: A short extra time will be added if a bid is placed a few minutes to the stoppage time
STRATEGY: We advise bidders to PLACE MAXIMUM NUMBER OF BIDS POSSIBLE. The bids will be played according to Our bid increment rules. 


NOTIFICATIONS: We will communicate to you via email all the relevant information you need to know about your bids although some emails may delay. Monitor your bids at all times if you want to make rapid decisions such as rebidding. 
WITHDRAWAL OR ADDITION TO THE SALE: We may at times feel the need to add or remove lots (or items on lots) while the auction is in progress. 


MATERIALITY: We have the right to reset the running bids on any lot if based on the material change  
RESERVE: You may need to pay the minimum amount to win items 
RECORDS: You agree that our records will be used to reach a definitive solution in the event if a disagreement

WE DO NOT GUARANTEE THAT OUR BIDDING SERVICE ON THE INTERNET WILL BE ERROR-FREE AND ANY ERROR FOUND WILL BE CORRECTED IMMEDIATELY.
