    Inspection of items, errors in description
    The winning bidder ("buyer") is allowed an inspection period to verify that the item substantially complies with the published description. A buyer who has inspected an item prior to final bid shall be deemed to have accepted the condition of the item at the time of the inspection but may reserve inspection following close of the auction only as to any changes in the item between the time of the initial inspection and a subsequent inspection made within the time for voiding the sale as set forth herein. The time period for voiding the sale and giving notice to USauctions of such ends the earlier of the time buyer ships or otherwise takes possession of the item, 24 hours following actual inspection of the item or 10 days following close of the auction. In the event there is a material difference between the item and the item description and buyer desires to void the sale, buyer shall so notify USauctions by email or by fax to (800) 385-8566 prior to the end of the time period set forth. A buyer who voids a sale when the item substantially complies with the published description shall be banned from future bidding with USauctions in addition to any other remedies provided for hereunder. In the event buyer properly voids the sale in a timely manner as required hereunder, buyer's sole remedy shall be to receive a refund of the portion of the purchase price paid. BUYER SHALL HAVE NO RIGHT TO ANY PRICE ADJUSTMENT SHOULD BUYER ELECT NOT TO VOID THE SALE AS PROVIDED FOR HEREIN. Neither USauctions nor the owner of the item shall be liable for any of buyer's costs incidental to the sale including, but not exclusively, travel, inspection, shipping or repairs. Any actions undertaken by USauctions or any item owner to assist buyer with shipping this item shall not be construed as placing an obligation upon USauctions or an item owner to ship the item, pay for shipping or be responsible for the shipment in any manner whatsoever.

Buyer shall be responsible for payment of all applicable sales taxes, registration fees and transfer fees. In the event buyer fails to make all or any portion of the initial deposit or final payment as required hereunder, Buyer shall be in default and Buyer’s right to purchase shall terminate. In the event buyer defaults, Buyer shall be obligated to pay a fee to USauctions equal to 10% of the bid amount and Buyer shall further be obligated to pay the owner of the item any shortfall between the bid price and the amount received from an arms length resale of the item whether sold at a private or public sale.

It shall be buyer's responsibility to make arrangements for moving the item or, in the alternative, for making arrangements to store the item beyond the 10 day grace period. It shall be buyer's responsibility for making arrangements to load and transport items. Buyer shall give USauctions notice of intent to pick up an item in sufficient time to ensure the storage charges are paid. When picking up vessels, Buyer shall make necessary arrangements with the boat yard where the vessel is located with not less than 24 hours notice before picking up a vessel to ensure the vessel is cleared for transport, any storage liens are paid, any necessary equipment is available and the vessel is not blocked in. Buyer assumes risk of loss of the item as of the earlier of the time buyer's right to void the sale terminates or the time buyer acquires insurance on the vessel. In the event Buyer fails to remove items in a timely manner, daily storage fees may be charged at the sales location and/or the items may be removed and stored at buyer's risk and expense.

    Delivery of title
    For titled items, delivery of free and clear title shall be the responsibility of the owner of the item. General processing time of titles is 4 to 6 weeks.
