  3. All transactions are to abide by the Laws and Rules of Uniform Code of North Carolina.
  4. All bids are to be per lot unless otherwise mentioned by the Auctioneer.
  5. The highest bidder is to be the buyer.  In all cases of disputed bids, the lot shall be resold, but the auctioneer will use his judgment as to the good faith of all claims and his decision is final.
  6. Bidders are required to register and give full identification prior to bidding and are required to use the number issued to them identifying themselves as the successful bidder.  Invoicing on purchases will be done according to the information on the bidder registration documents.
  7. All items are offered for sale by Lot Number.  The auctioneer will accept bids from the bidders present in the room, internet bidders, or telephone bidders.  The auctioneer has the right to place a bid for consignor up to the reserve amount.  Under no circumstances will the auctioneer place a bid on behalf of the consignor at or above the reserve.  Further the consignor has the right to “lift” the reserve price whereupon it will be sold to the highest bidder at the hammer.  When the reserve has been lifted, the auctioneer will duly announce it.
  8. The purchaser will afford every opportunity to view all lots prior to sale.  However the purchaser must understand that he/she is buying property entirely upon his own or his agent’s personal examination, inspection and opinion.  All lots are sold “AS IS WHERE IS”, with all faults and defects.  Any guarantees written or implied as to the authenticity, originality, or condition of any lot are not the guarantee of GAACC, and should be determined by the purchaser’s own inspection and discretion.  The vehicle and information presented at the time of auction is final and supersedes any previous representations.  The information provided is deemed reliable, but is not guaranteed.
  9. Should any dispute arise after the sale, the auctioneer’s records shall be conclusive in all respects.
