1. Inspection (Caveat Emptor: “Buyer Beware”)
Unless otherwise specified in the eBay auction listing, Oregon’s Surplus Property Program urges and cautions bidders to inspect the property prior to submitting a bid. Bidders can inspect property at the place and time specified in the invitation to bid.2. Payments (“Seven Days is Seven Days”)
Unless otherwise specified in the eBay auction listing, customers must pay in full within seven calendar days from the close date of the auction. Use one of the following payment options:
Payment Address and Hours:
State of Oregon DAS-Surplus Property
Unless otherwise specified in the eBay auction listing, the purchaser must remove items from the sale site within seven calendar days from the close date of the auction to remove items from the sale site. A customer who fails to remove property within the seven calendar days gives up his or her right to the property as described in section 4(b) Removal Default, below.
Please Note: Oregon’s Surplus Property Program will help load a customer’s property within reasonable limits. No Surplus employee, however, will try to load potentially hazardous items or anything that might harm someone.4. Default (“We’re not kidding about Numbers 1-3”)
A. Auction Default: A winning bidder is in breach of contract if he or she does not pay for the item won within seven calendar days from the close of the auction. Surplus property blocks such bidders from participating in online auctions until they submit a reinstatement fee:
B. Removal Default: A purchaser is in breach of contract if he or she pays for an item won but fails to remove the property from its sale location within seven calendar days from the close of the auction. All right, title, interest and ownership to the property reverts to the Oregon Surplus Property Program and the purchaser forfeits any payment made on the item(s).
Please Note: If a bidder defaults on items on a regular basis, the manager of the Oregon Surplus Property Program may permanently revoke the bidder’s participation in future auctions.5. Warranties, Guarantees and Descriptions (“It is What it Is”)
The Oregon Surplus Property Program only guarantees the quality or working condition of items as described in the eBay auction listing. Personal property or vehicles listed as “non-op” or “working condition unknown” should be considered inoperable and in need of major repair. The absence of “non-op” or “working condition unknown” does not imply that an item or vehicle works or functions and will in no way constitute a basis for a refund.
Warranties only apply to the conditions described in the auction listing. The Oregon Surplus Property Program will not accept property for return or adjustment for any other deficiencies found. Refunds or adjustments will not exceed the purchase (bid) price. The Oregon Surplus Property Program offers no compensation for shipping costs, travel expenses or effort.
6. Withdrawal of Property (“It’s Ours until You Leave with It”)
The Oregon Surplus Property Program reserves the right to withdraw any property if a legitimate need arises for reuse by a qualified public agency. Prospective bidders will have no right or recourse with the Oregon Surplus Property Program or any of its agents.
