of transportation and may require substantial repairs at bidder’s expense.

  1. Registration Laws Disclaimer. Company does not guarantee that any vehicle bought can be legally

registered in any state or country, and Buyer accepts all risks associated with variations in vehicle title

Example: You checked the increment bid box and bid $5,000. Virtual Sale Bid is currently at

$5,000 (a tie with your bid – unfortunately, it happens). Your Preliminary Bid is placed next at

$5,100 or to Virtual Bidder for $5,200 or more.

maximum bid outbids you during Preliminary Bidding, you will be notified via email.
