Arbitration Guidelines

  1. Buyers should thorougly check and test drive every vehicle. If there is any problem, a complaint must be properly filed with the Arbitration Office within the established arbitration time limit. The buyer assumes responsibility for mechanical failure after leaving the Auction once the arbitration period is over.
  2. It is the Buyer's responsibility to watch lights and listen to announced conditions before placing bids. Once the vehicle is sold the Buyer should check the Block Ticket to confirm the vehicle price and announcements are correct before legibly printing and signing their name to the Block Ticket. The Auction will not arbitrate defects visible from the block or announced conditions.
  3. The buyer is responsible for any pending sale from arbitration.
  4. All single repairs under $600 are not arbitratble.
  5. All in-op vehicles sold AS-IS, no guarantees on frame, miles, etc will not be arbitratable at all. You will recieve a negotiable title (not a salvage certificate)
