Bidding Information:

When you place a max bid the current bid price doesn't automatically go to your max bid. The computer will automatically bid up to your max in the increments specified as other bidders place bids or in the event of a lot with a reserve, it can bid against the reserve.

This auction has what is called an auto extend feature, meaning the auction will not close until all bidding parties are satisfied. If any bids are placed within the last 10 minutes of the item closing, the bid on lot(s) will extend for 10 minutes. The bidding will extend in 10 minute increments from the time the last bid is placed until there are no more bids, and the lot sits idle for 10 minutes.

Hansen Auction Group has put forth every effort to make accurate descriptions of the items. Printed or verbal statements made by staff are matters of opinion and are made in good faith. However all items are sold AS IS, WHERE IS. You are responsible for your own inspection during inspection periods.

All sales are final. A bid is a legal binding contract between you and Hansen Auction Group.

Hansen Auction Group reserves the right to reject any and all bids for any reason. No allowance will be made for errors in cataloging, genuineness, defects, or imperfections not noted. If a refund is given, it will not exceed the purchase price of the lot.
