NEXT AUCTION, THIS APRIL
Restaurant Equipment Online Auctions
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
1. Items are sold with no warranty.
By agreeing to participate in our auction, you are also agreeing to be the only judge of an object's value. Also, you're acknowledging that you may not be able to come and inspect an item.
Errors and omissions are to be excepted by auction participants, and we do not hold ourselves responsible for any mistakes in the description of any factor of our lots. We do not give warranties on auction items. No sales will be set aside or void on account of incorrectness in cataloging.
2. All auction sales are final.
If you win an item, you are legally the owner of the item. If you win an item in an auction, it's now yours to the extent that you do not violate our pick-up policies. This means that you have a legal obligation to pay for this item and collect it from the premises. We take no responsibility for any ambiguities or incorrectness in regards to an auction item post-auction. We will not be going out of our way to gather residual information upon an auction's end.
If you have the winning bid on an item, it is your responsibility to come and get your item. Any failure to do so within our allotted pick-up time may result in legal action or you being banned from participating in our further auctions.
3. You can't "auction snipe" something at the last second.
In other words, when you bid on an item within the last five minutes of our auction, the item’s availability will be extended for a set amount of time.
This is typically anywhere from 3 – 5 minutes, but we reserve the right to modify our soft close time restraints. Additionally, items without bids by 3:00 PM will begin to become unavailable in a staggered fashion.
4. You must pick up your items within one week.
You have to pick up your item on the same day you pay for them. When you agree to participate in our online auction, you’re acknowledging your responsibility to keep track of your bids. We do not hold ourselves responsible for any misplacement or failure to receive email invoices or failure to recognize lot winnings.
Furthermore, when you participate in our auction, you’re agreeing to the fact that you’ll be able to come and pick up your items within the allotted pick-up time or arrange shipping within the allotted pick-up time — no exceptions. You must pick up your items on the same day you pay for your items. You cannot pay for them and leave them at our warehouse. If you fail to do so, you will incur a $5.00 fee per day for every day your item is left in our warehouse.
Repeated failure to pick-up your items will affect your eligibility to participate in future auctions.
5. When picking up your items, bring an appropriate vehicle.
As a winning bidder, you need to make sure you have the appropriate form of transportation for your items. For example, if you're coming to pick up a 2000 lb oven, don't bring a mini-van.
Please keep in mind that restaurant equipment can be several hundred pounds. We reserve the right to decline your pick-up if they do not deem your method of transportation safe. The auction pick-up deadline will not be extended because you did not bring an appropriate vehicle.
We do monthly online-only auctions, where we sell new and used restaurant equipment, smallwares, and more. The equipment is based in Moncton, NB, so these auctions are primarily for residents of Atlantic Canada. However, for larger items, nationwide shipping is available at bidder's expense.

HIBID INTERNET AUCTION PLATFORM & WEB SERVICE DESCRIPTION
Sebae provides the HiBid (formerly Bidopia) Internet Auction Platform & Web Service ("HWS") under the HiBid trademark as a software solution for auctioneers wishing to extend the audience of their live auctions to the internet. The HWS provides various features including internet absentee bidding, internet-only auctions, and webcast auctions.
The HWS is able to changes its appearance to coincide with the website that it is powering. Accordingly, the HWS powers the www.hibid.com website as well as numerous Auction Flex customer websites. This ability to change appearance is a feature of the HWS. Much like internet merchant account providers can host a secure web page for a vendor to easily process payments, the HWS hosts certain portions of the auctioneer's website to easily enable advanced features such as internet bidding
INTERNET ABSENTEE BIDDING
Internet absentee bidding allows you to place a bid for an item in advance of an auction. This allows you to place bids on lots without actually attending the auction.
Internet only bidding allows you to place a bid for an item prior to the auction lot closing online. In an internet-only auction there is no live auction.
Webcast auctions allow you to bid in real-time against other bidders or place pre-bids prior to a lot going "live".
Lots are sold in accordance with the Auctioneer's terms and conditions which are accessible from each lot's page. It is your responsibility to read and accept the Auctioneer's terms and conditions prior to placing your bid.
When you place a bid you are agreeing to be bound by the Auctioneer's & Sebae's terms and conditions. By placing a bid you are entering into a legally binding and enforceable contract. Please keep in mind that you are bidding against other internet bidders as well as floor bidders, phone bidders, and regular absentee bidders (this list does not constitute a complete list of bidder types but does highlight the common bidder channels).
The auctioneer, at their discretion, can approve or deny bidders. The auctioneer reserves the right to accept or deny bidders for any reason. Prior to approval the auctioneer may contact you to determine your credit worthiness. If the auctioneer approves your bid, the auctioneer will then process your bid in accordance with their terms and conditions.
Should your bid for a lot prove successful, the auctioneer may contact you to arrange for payment & shipping (if applicable). If the auctioneer required registration via a credit card, the auctioneer reserves the right to process your winning bids to the credit card provided during registration.
Sebae, through the Auction Flex & HiBid products & services, facilitates the internet bidding process between the Auctioneer & the bidder. Sebae is in no way a party to the transaction. Because Sebae is not a party to the transaction, you accept that you will have no claim or cause of action against Sebae in respect of the sale (or non-sale) of any Lot. If you have a dispute with an Auctioneer or another user of the Service with regard to the sale (or non-sale) of any Lot you agree that Sebae, its officers, agents, employees will not be liable for losses (including, but not limited to, loss of profits, special loss, indirect loss and consequential los), costs, damages, liabilities, claims, demands and expenses of any kind arising out of or connected with such dispute. You also accept that none of the aforementioned are under any obligation to take any action to resolve any dispute between you and an Auctioneer
Sebae is not responsible for any typographical, pictorial or technical errors in information about Lots on the Site as provided by Auctioneers. Sebae does not evaluate Lots and does not act as a specialist or expert on any related subject matter. Sebae makes no warranties or representation of any kind or nature with respect to Lots (including but not limited to representations or warranties as to the accuracy of description, genuineness, quality, authorship, attribution, provenance, period, culture, source, origin or safety). If you have any questions, e-mail the Auctioneer directly. In particular, make sure that you understand the Auctioneer's payment terms and shipping terms.
The Service requires you to login with your username and password prior to placing a bid on a Lot. Making bids with false information or with stolen credit card information is prohibited and illegal.
Your user name and password are required in order to place internet bids. Making bids in a false name or with an invalid or stolen credit card is prohibited. Each bid carries the computer coding of the Internet provider which allows the individual user to be traced and Sebae may at its discretion release this information to enable legal action to be taken. Sebae may, in its entire discretion, refuse or remove bids where it suspects that bids contravene this prohibition. By placing a bid, you are making a binding and irrevocable offer to purchase the Item at any price up to the maximum bid amount you submit. If you win, you must complete the transaction, subject to any contractual right or other right at law to rescind the contract in certain circumstances. Failure to complete transaction without lawful reason is not only a breach of your contract with the Seller but also a breach of this User Agreement.
The amount bid can be increased but cannot be decreased. The auctioneer may, at their discretion, allow you to withdraw and resubmit a bid in the case of bids containing an obvious typographical error. You may forward a request to withdraw a bid and resubmit a correct bid by immediately sending an email to the auctioneer, however, there is no guarantee that any bid will be withdrawn. Although Sebae will use best efforts to forward all bids, Sebae does not accept any responsibility for lost bids or problems with the recipient auctioneer's ability to process your bid. Moreover, Sebae cannot guarantee that bids received will be processed by the individual auctioneers.
Please note that Sebae's role is limited to the provision of the Site for dissemination and publication of information provided by the Sellers.
THE WINNING BID
The winning bid in an auction will be the highest bid that exceeds any reserve (if a reserve exists). In the case of equal bids, the earliest bid received will be the winning bid. If a higher bid is subsequently withdrawn or removed then the auctioneer shall have the right to accept the next highest bid.
NOTICE OF END OF SALE, PAYMENT & SHIPPING
After the sale has ended, the auctioneer will notify the winning bidder via phone, fax or mail that they have won. If you do not receive notice that you have made the winning bid and think that you are the top bidder, you should check with the auctioneer directly. You will make all payment for Items to the auctioneer in accordance with their terms and conditions.
BUYER'S PREMIUM, TAXES AND DUTIES
If you are a successful bidder, you are responsible for paying any buyer's premium, taxes and duties (including any VAT, sales tax and import duties) that may be imposed on the final price paid for an Item.
