We have a few rules that we all must follow to insure that everyone has a safe and enjoyable auction experience. Sierra is acting as a auctioneer-agent for many cities, counties, the State of Arizona, many large and small companies and people just like yourself that are seeking to sell items they no longer need. Sierra may act as a principal, Buyer or Seller, in the sale of some items. Sierra is not responsible for the actions of its principals. HAVE FUN!
REGISTRATION: All Buyers must register with Sierra prior to bidding. Sierra reserves the right to deny access to its premises to any Buyer(s), visitor or guest in its sole discretion. Sierra may revoke any bidder's rights to bid at any Sierra auction, or all future Sierra auctions in its sole discretion. These Terms and Conditions shall remain in full force and effect for all future Sierra auctions until revoked by BUYER in writing, and acknowledged by an officer of Sierra. Sierra reserves the right to change these TERMS and CONDITIONS at any time in its sole discretion and without notice.
DEPOSITS: All in-person bidders will be required to place a cash, or certified check deposit of $500 deposit for any vehicle or heavy equipment lot. You must register as a vehicle buyer in order to bid on vehicles or heavy equipment. All sales are subject to local, state and federal taxes including Sales Taxes unless you have a valid sales tax exemption certificate acceptable to Sierra and to the State of Arizona prior to bidding, file a completed Arizona form 5000, and a separate automobile dealer exemption certificate/license.
ALL SALES ARE FINAL: ALL ITEMS ARE SOLD "AS IS-WHERE IS," WITH ALL FAULTS AND WITHOUT WARRANTIES. Catalog, web and ad descriptions are NOT GUARANTEED. The descriptions have been prepared from information believed to be reliable. Sierra attempts to ensure accuracy; however, Sierra is not liable for any errors, omissions, or inaccuracies in the catalog or other written or verbal descriptions. Bidders are responsible to thoroughly inspect items before bidding and to satisfy themselves of such matters as suitability, marketability, completeness, year, make, model, and/or condition. IF YOU ARE UNSURE AS TO ANY MATTER, Sierra URGES YOU NOT TO BID. YOU MAY NOT RELY ON SIERRA'S DISCRIPTIONS OR INFORMATION, WRITTEN OR VERBAL. All auction sales will be recorded by audio and/or in writing by at least 2 Sierra personnel. This record of the number of the bidder, the bid, and amount thereof shall be prima facie evidence of the circumstances of the sale, and all disagreements will be resolved with this record. Please clearly show your bidder number to the auctioneer. Please confirm the auctioneer correctly states your bidder number and the final sales amount. Sierra is not responsible for any loss or damage to any sold auction items. Title (ownership) and risk of loss or damage transfers to Bidder as soon as each individual lot is sold. Purchaser should monitor their purchases during the auction, if it is damaged or missing it is the bidders' responsibility. Sierra urges all Bidders to remove all lots from the auction site as soon as practicable, and no later than the close of business on auction day, with safety and security as the top considerations.

In the event the Buyer fails to place the required deposit, Sierra, in its sole and exclusive judgment, may declare the buyer in breach of contract, and re-auction the lot, and bar the Buyer from future bidding. Buyer will forfeit its deposit, and be liable for any loss or other cost the consignor and/or Sierra incurs in re-auctioning the lot. No Lots may be removed in part or in full until paid in full.
