Unless a minimum bid per item or reserve bid notice is posted, the highest bid online at close of bidding on each item becomes the winning bid for that item. Buyer must pay a 10% Buyer's Fee in addition to the winning bid amount.  The total then becomes the full purchase price for each item.

Buyer is responsible for any taxes, vehicle title and registration fees, FFL firearms background check and transfer costs, cost of removal, shipping, packaging, handling and additional expense per item description. Acceptable form of payment: Cash, Credit Card, Bank Certified Checks, Wire Transfer, or pre-approved personal check if arranged PRIOR to the last business day before the end of the Auction.
