Always read the terms and details of the particular sale prior to bidding.
DYNAMIC CLOSING: The closing time of an asset is automatically extended an additional 3 minutes whenever a bid is placed within the last 3 minutes of the asset's closing time.

After 24 hours, the Auctioneer and buyer agrees that no adjustment or refund will be made.
CAUTION: For demonstration purposes various equipment may be joined. Do not assume a lot consists of more than one item simply because they are connected or pictured together. Please inspect the lot numbers and read the descriptions carefully, and contact the warehouse conducting the sale for any further clarification.
CATALOG DESCREPENCIES: You are bidding on the described item not the photograph. Occasionally the wrong photo may be displayed - always read the item description. In the event that a Seller has withdrawn an item from the sale prior to the close of the auction, RCI may leave the item on the catalog and "buyback" the item on behalf of the Seller to establish RCI's earned commission and buyer's premium due RCI from the Seller. The item may also be deleted or marked as removed.
