Terms & Conditions of Non-Livestock Auctions

All Announcements from the Auction Block take precendence over these below and any other printed material!

Seller & Auctioneer Representation:

  • We tell you what the sellers tell us regarding operating condition, age, hours or mileage, etc
    Averything is sold as presented to the buyer without further warrantee.
  • We conscientiously list and describe all items to the best of our knowledge, however, the  descriptions remain a guide only, not a guarantee - please inspect everything to your satisfaction before you buy.
    Bidding on an item indicates you have satisfied yourself as to all aspects of the item and no one else is responsible.

Buyer Obiligations & Responsibilities:

  • Buyers are required to pay for all purchases the day of the auction and nothing is to be removed until full settlement has been made. All risk of purchases becomes the buyer's as soon as the item is declared 'sold'. Payments can be made by cash or cheque with sufficient identification - we reserve the right to require a letter of credit from your bank on larger items. Johnstone Auction Mart Ltd. retains ownership of all items until full settlement has been made and cheques have cleared the bank. 
    You may also pay by Visa or Mastercard
    (3% administration fee is added for credit cards)
    Debit card payments
    are accepted except for auctions away from our auction yard.(check with your bank to make sure your limit per transaction is high enough). 
  • Removal of purchases is the buyer's responsibility and must by done by the date announced at the auction. Failure to remove items by that time entitles the seller or auctioneer to re-sell the items with proceeds going to the buyer, less expenses incurred.
  • Accidents: Although precautions are taken to protect the safety and comfort of buyers, Johnstone Auction Mart and staff assume no responsibility in this matter, and disclaim any liability, legal or otherwise, in the event of an accident or loss of property. Attend all auctions at your own risk!
