BPI Auctions Terms and Conditions for Buyers
Introduction and explanation
These terms and conditions are referred to as the Terms.
They apply to all bidders and potential bidders which includes those who take part in an auction we host even if they do not Register, submit a bid or do not buy anything. Some of the Terms only apply to people who take part in an Auction as an Individual and some only apply to Businesses. If applicable, a Term will state clearly whether it applies only to Individuals or whether it applies only to Businesses. If it does not state either way then the Term will apply to both.
In most cases, BPI does not own the goods and Items that We sell by auction. We sell as an agent on behalf of the Seller being the person or business who owns the Items. There is never any contract as between Us and You if you are a Successful Bidder in respect of any Items we Auction.
However, where BPI does sell an Item as the owner, these are specifically referred to as BPI Items and if this is the case it will say so in the Catalogue.
As such, it is important to understand that these Terms reflect both:

ADDITIONAL CONDITIONS OF SALE
Shipping is available from Our premises in Wakefield at additional costs. Our shipping quotes are given after the sales invoice is cleared. We use third parties to quote and therefore the price We are given reflects the price given to the Buyer. If the Buyer does not wish to accept the quote, then the Buyer must arrange their own collections.
The Buyer accepts full responsibility for the condition upon arrival from both Us and Sellers. We and Sellers will not be held responsible for any damages in transit and therefore will not honour refund requests or replacements. Please note we do not offer shipping for vehicles.
We and Sellers will package items to the best of their ability to reduce the chances of damages.
Any arrangements made directly between a Buyer and a third party carrying out collections will be subject to the terms and conditions of that third party.
If Buyers wish to purchase Lots with the help of a finance company they should make arrangements well in advance of the sale to ensure that they are able to make payment in accordance with the Terms and Conditions for Buyers.
Overseas Buyers should ensure that the country to which the items are destined:-
Overseas Buyers will receive a fully descriptive invoice in order that they may arrange payment as soon as possible with the Our bank.
Overseas Buyers should employ a suitable freight forwarding organisation. Please note that many of the machinery removal companies in the United Kingdom are not necessarily freight forwarders. The Seller or Us will be pleased to advise accordingly.
We make no representation and accept no liability whatsoever to any Buyer in respect of the issuance or validity of any exportation or importation permits or the existence and exercise of exportation or importation regulations or any compulsory purchasing regimes.
VAT Payments and Returns:
All overseas Buyers (EU and non-EU) will be charged VAT at the current rate on each Lot purchased. This will be refunded to the overseas Buyer as soon as the Seller receives a copy of the bill of lading as proof of export, providing this documentation is received within 3 months of the sale date.
