ASSOCIATED AUCTIONEERS INC. VEHICLE ARBITRATION POLICY (BUYER)
Defects, conditions, or discrepancies described in the policy may be eligible for arbitration if:
1. The vehicle is paid in full
2. The defect, condition, or discrepancy was not disclosed or announced at the time of sale
3. Minimum bid price of $2,000 on vehicles sold to the public, and $2500 on vehicles sold to dealers
4. The request for arbitration is made within the arbitration period described in this policy, and vehicles must be returned to Associated Auctioneers in the same or better condition than when purchased.
5. If one or more of the following is suspected:
a) Cracked block
b) Bad transmission
c) Incorrect odometer reading
d) Frame damage
e) Carfax discrepancy
Arbitration Period: The arbitration period during which the buyer may request arbitration for specified conditions and defects is two (2) business days following the auction.
Arbitration Fee: A $200.00 + HST arbitration fee is payable by the buyer to Associated Auctioneers. In the event the Associated Auctioneers' arbitrator finds, in his sole discretion, that the arbitration request is without merit, the fee is non-refundable. If the arbitrator finds, in his sole discretion, that the seller has not met all of the disclosed obligations set out in this policy with respect to the arbitration request, the buyer will be refunded the fee and the seller will be charged the arbitration fee and any awarded price adjustment, is applicable. Each arbitration request must be properly documented in writing by the buyer.
It is the buyer's responsibility to satisfy itself with a vehicle's condition, to read and listen to announced conditions before placing bids. Once the vehicle is sold, the buyer should check the auction contract to confirm the vehicle price and announcements are correct before signing the auction contract. Once the vehicle is paid in full, the buyer should thoroughly check and, if possible, test-drive every vehicle purchased. If there is any problem, the buyer must request arbitration within the applicable arbitration time limit noted above. The buyer assumes full responsibility for mechanical or electrical failure once the arbitration period is over.
The buyer, buyer's designee, or buyer's agent (e.g. transporter or driver) should note and obvious damage on the gate release prior to removing the vehicle from the auction facility. Buyer may not arbitrate any obvious damage not identified on the gate release or the condition report once the vehicle is removed from the auction facility.
A WORD OF WARNING: The arbitration process is not a tool for price reduction or for dealing with "Buyer's remorse".

We strongly encourage all bidders to personally verify the condition of each item during the scheduled preview times. All items sold As Is Where Is, No Warranty, No Guaranty. Though all description and commentary are believed to be correct, neither Auctioneer nor Consignor makes any warranties or representations of any kind with respect to the property, and in no event shall be held responsible for having made or implied any warranty of description, genuiness, authorship, attribution, provenance, period, culture, source, origin, condition, etc.

AUCTION RECORDS: In the unlikely event of a dispute, you agree to accept as true the information that we have in our records.

STRATEGY: We recommend that ALL BIDDERS put in their maximum bid when placing a bid online. This does not mean you will have to pay the amount you bid; you only pay one bid more than the next highest bid, and only up to your maximum bid. The software system will play out the bids as you would at a live auction and only uses the funds required to beat out the under-bidder at the prescribed bid increment.
CATALOGUE ERRORS & OMISSIONS: If a description does not match a picture in a lot, the description takes precedence. All items are sold on an 'as is, where is' basis, with all faults.
