Auction Terms & Conditions BIDDER IS REQUIRED TO PAY THE FOLLOWING ON ALL BIDS
9% Sales Tax
13% Buyers Premium
$164.25 Estimated Title & Registration Fee
$100.00 Negotiable Documentary Service Fee. The maximum charge allowed for a documentary service fee is $200.00. Because the selling price is determined by competitive bidding, a $100.00 documentary service fee is deemed negotiated at time of bidding.
By agreeing to these Terms and Conditions, bidder is agreeing to pay a $500.00 nonrefundable deposit upon winning a bid. When the auction closes, this deposit will be charged to your credit/debit card and deducted from the balance due. Winning bidders waive the right to dispute or deny payment of the $500.00 nonrefundable deposit.
DO NOT BID if the credit/debit card you registered with does not have $500.00 available to cover the nonrefundable deposit for EACH vehicle you would like to bid on.
The registered bidder's name and address will be the name and address on the vehicle title/registration paperwork, therefore, do not purchase a vehicle to put in someone else's name.
YOU CANNOT RETRACT, DELETE OR CANCEL YOUR BID FOR ANY REASON
Once you submit a bid, this cannot be undone. ALL BIDS PLACED ARE FINAL AND NON-RETRACTABLE. You should carefully review the amount of your bid and max bid prior to bidding.
YOU MUST PAY FOR ANY AND ALL VEHICLES YOU WIN
Failure to pay for an item is considered fraud and legal action may be taken against you.
When placing a bid, you are entering a LEGAL BINDING CONTRACT to purchase the vehicle, deliver payment and take possession of the vehicle within the specified time period.
Do not bid on a vehicle, or multiple vehicles, if you cannot pay for ALL OF THEM.
All vehicles must be paid in full before any can be removed from the auction site.

Although each auction listing includes certain vehicle information, we provide no representations, warranties, or guarantees regarding the accuracy or completeness of the vehicle information. You are responsible for verifying all vehicle information to your satisfaction. The mileage stated is the odometer reading, that mileage may not be the actual mileage of the vehicle. Not all items have a condition notation in the description, therefore you are advised to preview items.
We make every effort to disclose branded titles but you are responsible for obtaining vehicle/title history reports. Vehicles cannot be returned for any reason, including non-disclosed branded titles.
All vehicles are being sold "As Is, Where Is". All vehicles are sold without any warranties as to merchantability of fitness for a particular purpose. The principal, the auctioneer, the advertising coordinator, and any of their agents make no express or implied warranties of any type.
Bidder acknowledges, understands and agrees that the auction company and the seller make no warranty whatsoever, expressed or implied regarding the quality, characteristics, performance or condition of the vehicle. The price of the vehicle is negotiated by online auction bidding with no warranty. Bidder is responsible for any and all costs of repairs upon taking possession of vehicle.
Although every precaution has been taken to ensure accuracy, the principal, the Bellingham Public Auto Auction, LLC, the advertising coordinator and all their agents shall not be responsible for any errors or omissions therein. Any misrepresentation is not deliberate and therefore the Bellingham Public Auto Auction, LLC is not responsible.
When you place a max bid, HiBid's bidding technology will automatically place bids on your behalf, using the smallest increment necessary to ensure you remain the high bidder until your max bid is met.
If you place a bid and receive an email with the word Outbid in the subject line, it means another bidder has placed the same bid before you, or a max bid that is higher than yours, therefore you are not the high bidder.
