Auctioneers Terms and Conditions

By making a bid, Bidder accepts the terms and conditions below and will be bound by them.

Everything will be sold “as is, where is”, with no guarantee of any kind, regardless of the statement of condition made from the auction block.  What you see is what you get.  All items will sell absolute with no reserve prices.  No guarantees or warranties.  E&O makes no warranty, expressed or implied. It is the Bidder’s responsibility to determine condition, age, genuineness, value or any other determinative factor of items for sale.  Buyers shall rely entirely on their own inspection and information.  No collusion is allowed.

The Auction is conducted pursuant to an Order by the United States Bankruptcy Court.  Collusion or misconduct of any kind in connection with the Auction will be subject to civil or criminal penalties as provided by law.

Announcements made the day of the sale take precedence over written or advertised announcements, but do not alter, in any way, the terms and conditions of the sale.

Auction Process

The auction is open to the public and is an online timed auction format.  The first lot closes Tuesday April 18th at 8am and each lot will close 1 minute after in numerical order.   If there is a bid in the final few minutes of closing the bid clock will reset 3 minutes per bid.  There will be an auction preview Monday April 17th from 10am-3pm for Cedar City & Idaho.  The auctioneer reserves the right to accept bids in any increment he feels is in the best interest of his client, the seller.  The Auctioneer reserves the right to reject the bidding of any person whose conduct, actions, or adverse comments he feels are not in the best interest of the seller.  There are lots that will be subject to a minimum bid.  We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone.  NO CHILDREN PLEASE.  

Auction Previews
Auction previews will be Monday April 17th 10-2 for Cedar City & the Idaho locations.


Buyers are responsible for removal of their items by the date and specified time(or times) of each auction.   After an item has been sold, it becomes the sole responsibility of the purchaser.  Bidders must have their paid invoice in hand to show proof of purchase.  Every effort is made to “guard” the lots/product throughout the auction; however, the bidder becomes solely responsible for all items purchased by him/her immediately following his/her winning bid. Therefore, he/she is advised to further guard his items at his own discretion.  Purchases will not be released until the invoice is paid in full.
