Every bidder agrees that his or her decision to bid and the amount he or she bids have been based solely on his or her own independent inspection and evaluation of the auction assets.
Bidders are strongly advised by Ken Carpenter Auction to take care to satisfy all questions or concerns about the auction process, bidding process or auction assets before placing a bid. Inspection and contact information for the seller of every asset is posted in the item details for that asset.
Buyers are responsible for the cost of auction asset mobilization, disassembly, rigging, transport, insurance and all other costs related to physical transfer of auction assets from their location at the time auction bidding ends.

ABANDONED ASSET POLICY
Ken Carpenter Auction may declare an asset abandoned when a buyer fails to make full payment by the stated payment deadline or when a buyer fails to remove an asset from the auction site by the stated removal deadline. When Ken Carpenter Auction declares an asset abandoned, it may take the following steps in its sole discretion:
• Ken Carpenter Auction may resell the asset in an upcoming auction on the buyer’s behalf for an additional administrative fee of 20% of the original invoice price (minimum $1,000 fee) and account for the resale as follows:
o Net proceeds, if any, will be released to the buyer, calculated as the resale bid price collected plus any amounts paid by the buyer against the original invoice, less all administrative and storage fees accrued;
o If the resale bid price collected plus amounts paid by the buyer against the original invoice are insufficient to cover the buyer's administrative and storage fees accrued, the deficiency will continue to be owed by the buyer, and Ken Carpenter Auction and the seller will retain all legal
remedies to obtain that deficiency;
o Net proceeds may be retained and used by Ken Carpenter Auction to offset any amounts owed by the buyer related to other past or pending purchases or sales of assets by the buyer or a related party.
• Where the original invoice price is $2,000, Ken Carpenter Auction may allow the seller to retain or dispose of the asset, declare the buyer’s rights to the asset immediately terminated, and retain all payments by buyer as liquidated damages.
Where an asset is declared abandoned under this policy after the buyer has been issued a certificate of title, the buyer agrees Ken Carpenter Auction and its administrative personnel are appointed as buyer’s true and lawful attorney-in-fact to apply for a Certificate of Title and/or Registration upon and/or endorse and transfer title for the asset(s) in issue and, by acknowledging these terms and conditions, the buyer swears or affirms that this appointment is true and correct.
While Ken Carpenter Auction will make every effort to assist bidders, we do not accept absentee bids. Please utilize the maximum bid feature.
BID RESCISSION AND REJECTION
Ken Carpenter Auction reserves the right to rescind or reject any and all bids.
Retractions will be assessed individually upon request.
All sales are subject to appropriate state sales tax laws. Winning bidders have the burden of proving their exemption from sales taxes to Ken Carpenter Auction.
ASSET TRANSFER AND RISK OF LOSS POST-AUCTION
Assets will not be released to buyers until full payment to Ken Carpenter Auction has been received and funds confirmed. An auction asset becomes the full responsibility of the buyer at the close of bidding on that asset, and the buyer immediately assumes all risk of loss and damage to the asset.
Ken Carpenter Auction has full discretion to modify the date and time, order, and details of the sale of any asset or conduct of any auction for any reason or no reason at all, including but not limited to technical issues, emergencies, and convenience of Ken Carpenter Auction or the seller.
CHOICE OF LAW AND VENUE; WAIVER
In any matters in which Ken Carpenter Auction and/or any of its employees, officers, directors, shareholders, agents or assigns is made a party, the law of the State of Oklahoma shall apply, without regard to its law pertaining to conflict of laws, and any dispute shall be decided in the courts of Canadian County, Oklahoma. All claimants consent to the personal jurisdiction of those courts. Auctioneer may waive any provision of these Terms and Conditions, but only in writing. No such waiver shall effect any other provisions of these Terms and Conditions, nor shall it amount to a permanent waiver of that particular provision.
