WARRANTY & CONDITION
Our items: Some are brand new, still in original packaging, or are online customer returns. Some items may have been previously opened, used or had damages occur to them. Conditions and previous use of specific items may vary.
The photographs we use for all items on the Site are stock photos, not photographs of the actual/specific item beings sold. STOCK PHOTOGRAPHS DO NOT REPRESENT THE ITEM’S CONDITION. We list each item according to its individual UPC label. Please review the description of each item prior to purchasing. Some items sold on the Site are partials, incomplete or damaged; if it comes to our attention that such items are partials, incomplete, or damage, the item will be designated accordingly on the Site. However, the Company does not guarantee that all items will be properly marked, nor does the Company warrant that an inspection will be made of every item. Items that are flagged or marked may contain additional detail/information near the bottom of each item(s) description. Do not rely on the description on the Site, as it is the bidder’s responsibility to inspect any item(s) on which you bid. PLEASE NOTE THAT OUR STAFF DOES NOT INSPECT OR OPEN ANY BOXES AND PACKAGES. THEREFORE, NONE OF THE ENCLOSED ITEMS CAN BE GUARANTEED OR WARRANTED. It is the bidders responsibility to inspect any items they are interested in during scheduled preview days. ALL SALES ARE FINAL. The Company makes no warranties on any items or goods purchased through the Site. Every item is sold on "as-is" basis without representations or warranties of any kind whatsoever. NO REFUNDS WILL BE PROVIDED.
The Company makes efforts to ensure that use of the Site is safe, secure, and functioning properly, but cannot guarantee the continuous operation of or access to the Site or services provided thereon. Bidding and other functionality on the Site may not occur in real time. Such functionality is subject to delays beyond the Company’s control.
You agree that you are making use of the Site at your own risk, and that services are being provided to you on an "AS IS" and "AS AVAILABLE" basis. Accordingly, to the extent permitted by applicable law, the Company excludes all express or implied warranties, terms and conditions including, but not limited to, implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, and non-infringement.
Place a bid on the items you desire by putting your bid in the left hand bidding box. If you do not want to come back and re-bid every time someone else places a higher bid, then you may place your maximum bid in the right hand bidding box. Place your maximum bid in the right hand bidding box and our system will incrementally your bid up to your maximum bid.
Please review bids carefully before each submission. Prime Auctions cannot edit or delete bids after they have been submitted. Keep in mind that each bid you place is a binding contract to buy the item if you win. You acknowledge and agree that once you have placed a bid, the bid cannot be cancelled or retracted.
LOSS OF BIDDING PRIVILEGES
If the buyer's credit card is declined, bidding privileges may be terminated, and the buyer may be prohibited from participation in any future auctions. Privileges may be restored at the sole discretion of the Company. The Company reserves the right to Void, terminate, and reject any bids which it believes have not been made in good faith, are intended to manipulate the auction process, or are prohibited by any applicable law, restriction or regulation.
PICKING UP ITEMS
SHIPPING & HANDLING AND DELIVERY
The purchase of any item does not include shipping and handling services, and the Company does not guarantee any shipping and handling services will be provided. If the Company and purchaser agree, the Company may, in its sole discretion, arrange for the delivery of your item upon the terms agreed to by the Company and the purchaser. Any delivery services are additional in cost. The cost of delivery is based on the delivery address, but will be within the sole discretion of the Company. Please contact the Company for a delivery quote.
If you have a Tax Exemption form, please present it when picking up your item(s). Tax exemption will not be accepted at a later time and you will have to apply with the state for a refund.
The Company reserves and retains the full undisputed right to end, delay or extend the length of an auction or time of pick-up, for any reason. In addition, any item may be removed from the online auction at any time. The Company has the right to refuse sale any time before payment is made.
