  3. Goods collected by our carrier will be subject to a carrier charge that will be deducted from the proceeds of sale and agreed with the vendor prior to collection.
  4. The Seller warrants to the auctioneers and to the buyer that he is the true owner of the goods or is properly authorised to sell the goods by the true owner and is able to transfer good title to the goods free from any third party claims. The Seller indemnifies the auctioneer and the buyer against any loss or damage suffered by either, in consequence of any breach of this condition by the seller.
  5. All goods are put up for sale without reserve unless written instructions are agreed. Reserves will be adhered to within 10% auctioneer’s discretion. Unless otherwise agreed any goods failing to reach their reserve may be re-offered in a subsequent auction at the auctioneer’s discretion.

  9. The auctioneers reserve the right to re-offer for sale on behalf of the seller any goods for which payment is not received through default of the buyer.
  10. The auctioneers reserves the right to re-offer, re-cycle or dispose of any items that fail to sell. Any items of an unsaleable nature may be disposed of before an auction. A charge for disposal may be made.
