A Bid is a Contract:
Placing a bid is a binding contract and the bid cannot be retracted. Once you place a bid, and if you win, you are obligated to buy the product at the said price you indicated as your bid. Items should be paid for and picked up within the terms of the auction. Placing a bid on AAC, and winning, then not paying for the product is illegal in most states, and may result in prosecution. Please note that AAC reserves the right to reject any and all bids, in their sole discretion. All sales are final. No refunds will be permitted. Items not paid for within the terms of the auction will revert back to the owner /seller who may re-sell or dispose of a seller's discretion.
All pricing is listed in US dollars. Payment is required within the terms of the auction after winning bid. We accept payments by: Paypal, Visa and MasterCard.
On File Credit Card:
Bidders are required to register and maintain an up to date credit card on file with AAC. The billing address on file must match your credit card's billing address. AAC reserves the right to run an authorization on a bidder's credit card on file. If the authorization is declined, bidding privileges will be suspended.
Shipping and Removal:
Bidders are responsible for their own removal unless prior shipping arrangements have been made. Once payment has been made, the bidder must call the AAC office at 800.572.4480 to schedule a time to pick up the item(s) prior to arriving at the pickup site and bring a copy of the invoice with them. Upon winning the auction, the successful winner assumes all risks of loss and damage to property until removed from the sale premises. Each item must be removed in accordance with the terms of the individual auction. Bidders that fail to remove their items within the terms listed on the auction will be considered abandoned and revert back to the seller/owner. No refunds will be issued if the winner fails to comply with the terms set forth.
TAGeX Brands and Advance Auction Company are not responsible for those who miss pick up day due to negligence. All dates and information regarding the auctions are posted prior to the auction closing. If an invoice is not received the same day of the auction close, it is the responsibility of the bidder to call and inquire the status.
It is the bidder's responsibility to remove items from the auction pickup location(s). If items are left behind in a third party warehouse or restaurant location they will be considered abandoned and no refund will be issued to the bidder. If items are not picked up or removed from a warehouse operated by TAGeX Brands or Advance Auction Company on their specified pickup date, TAGeX Brands reserves the right charge a daily fee of $100 for every pallet position being used for item storage.
Any removal of remote refrigeration requires evacuation of refrigerant according to local, state and federal laws. EPA regulations (40 CFR Part 82, Subpart F) under Section 608 of the Clean Air Act include requirements for the safe disposal of refrigeration and air-conditioning equipment. Refrigeration and air-conditioning equipment that is typically dismantled on-site before disposal (e.g., retail food refrigeration, central residential air conditioning, chillers, and industrial process refrigeration) must have refrigerant recovered in accordance with EPA's requirements for servicing prior to their disposal. Failure to follow all local, state and federal law requirements for refrigerant evacuation can result in fines against you of up to $37,500 per day.

All items (unless specifically marked) have been previously used in a commercial restaurant setting and will show some signs of use including, but not limited to; nicks, scratches and discoloration. AAC presents all items as accurately as possible based on the information available to us and on our knowledge at the time of posting. The images, manufactures, and model, have been depicted to the best of our ability, highlighting all faults. We recommend that you carefully read the product description and other related product information such as Specification Sheets, MSDS Sheets, etc., before placing your order. If you have any questions or concerns about a product even after reading the description and product information, please contact our office. Advance Auction Company does not guarentee the functionality of any listed equipment. All items are sold AS IS WHERE IS.
From time to time items may be photographed in place. The photo may contain additional item(s) not included in the specific item for sale. It is the bidder's responsibility to not assume that everything in the photos is part of the individual listing and carefully read the item description to clarify what is being bid on.
From time to time we understand that bidders will submit a bid in error. If this happens, please contact us immediately at 800.572.4480 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We will make every effort to resolve this prior to the auction closing. After the auction has closed, all sales will be considered final and no refunds issued.
An Auction may close at varying times and vary in quantity of items. Please make sure you monitor items you are interested in, as each auction may be different.
Extended Closing Time:
The auction will be extended an additional Three (3) minutes on any auction when a bid is received in the last Three (3) minutes of an auction.
Once an auction closes, the buyer will receive an invoice via e-mail by 9 AM EST on the business day following the close of the auction. It will be e-mailed to the e-mail address provided at the time of registration. Buyers are responsible to make arrangements for alternative payment methods prior to the auction close. If no alternative payment arrangement has been made before the final close of the auction, the credit card on file will be charged. If the credit card number on file is invalid or cannot be charged for any reason, the winning item(s) will be relisted.
All merchandise is sold 'as is/where is' and 'with all faults' with no warranty. All items have been limitedly tested and do power up at the time of listing. There is NO GUARANTEE that equipment sold as used will arrive in clean-as-new condition or in working order.
