Please read the terms carefully as they are a legal binding contract between you and Schaardt Auction Service LLC.
There will be a buyer’s fee, plus sales tax (based on the county where the items are) added to the final bid price. The buyer’s fee is taxable if the item is taxable. 3.5% convenience fee for credit/debit card purchases. Payments accepted: cash, certified check, cashier’s check, or credit/debit card. Wire transfer may be required instead of prior options.
NO PERSONAL OR BUSINESS CHECKS unless accompanied by a letter of guarantee from the bank which can be faxed, emailed or hard copy - must be dated & signed. PLEASE DO NOT MAIL PAYMENTS.
SHIPPING/HAULING: Call to check availability for shipping before bidding (it is not always available). Shipping of equipment is 100% the buyer’s responsibility. Picking up items outside the scheduled pick up time is often not available & if it is, will incur additional charges.
If purchases are not settled by the end of the scheduled pick up, it is in default. Upon default the bidder will be black listed on Schaardt Auction Service auctions and will be charged 25% of bid price or $500, whichever is greater, and the merchandise will be forfeited back to Schaardt Auction Service.
Items need to be picked up during the scheduled pick up time. Any items not picked up within the scheduled time are subject to a MINIMUM $20 fee. Call to check availability for shipping before the scheduled pick up time (it is not always available). Shipping is standard shipping rates plus handling (typically $20 or more). Any items remaining after 30 days of auction close are considered forfeited and become property of Schaardt Auction Service. No refunds will be given.

Bidding info- When you place a max bid the current bid price doesn't automatically go to your max bid. The computer will automatically bid up to your max in the increments specified as other bidders place bids or in the event of a lot with a reserve, it can bid against the reserve.
This auction has what is called an auto extend feature, meaning the auction will not close until all bidding parties are satisfied. If any bids are placed within the last 10 minutes of the item closing, the bid on lot(s) will extend for 10 minutes. The bidding will extend in 10 minute increments from the time the last bid is placed until there are no more bids, and the lot sits idle for 10 minutes.
Schaardt Auction Service has put forth every effort to make accurate descriptions of the items. Printed or verbal statements made by staff are matters of opinion and are made in good faith. However all items are sold AS IS WHERE IS. You are responsible for your own inspection during inspection periods.
No allowance will be made for errors in cataloging, genuineness, defects, or imperfections not noted. If a refund is given, it will not exceed the purchase price of the lot. All sales are final. A bid is a legal binding contract.
Schaardt Auction Service reserves the right to reject any and all bids for any reason.
