Information Control

Information about assets listed on Okiebid.com is listed by Affiliates. The Affiliates are solely responsible for the accuracy of the information or pictures they provide to the site. Okiebid.com makes no representations or warranties in regard to the information or omissions provided by the Affiliate sellers. All of the items are provided “as is.” It is your responsibility to make use of the inspection time so that you can make the best decision possible.

Auction Item Descriptions and Pictures:

Some photographs of items listed on Okiebid.com will have visible items in the background, next to, or attached to the item that is listed in the auction. Please read the auction listing carefully and do not assume that the other items in the photographs are included in the auction listing. You are bidding on the items as they are described and not as they appear in the photographs provided by the Affiliates. If you feel there is an error in a listing, please contact the Affiliate seller for clarification. Okiebid.com reserves the right to add or remove items from an auction, split or combine lots, add minimum bids or reserve prices, cancel, suspend, extend or reschedule an item and/or auction event, and make changes to the auction closing, inspection, or removal times. Item descriptions and photographs are to assist bidders in the bidding process, and we make every effort to ensure that the descriptions and photographs accurately represent the items being offered for sale, BUT we cannot guarantee the accuracy of any picture or description for any item. Also understand that, on occasion, the wrong photograph may be displayed for a given item, due to human or technological error. At all times, you are bidding on items as they are described on this website, not as they appear in any photograph.

Inspections:

Public Inspections of the auction items are open to viewing. The viewing day and time is posted with each auction. There will NOT be additional inspection times and days, just what is posted on the site. Inspections are important times to see the assets that you are interested in bidding on and not solely relying on the pictures and information that appears on the website. Bidders have the sole responsibility for inspecting, researching, and determining the value of an item listed on the website.

Auction Close and Extended Bidding:

Every auction has a specific set end time; this is the time that the first lot in the auction is scheduled to end. Each asset or “lot” within the auction will end at the time clearly posted for that item. It is important to remember that there may be a slight lag in the countdown due to your connection speed. It is unwise to wait until the very last seconds to bid.

Extended Close: The closing time of a lot is extended if a bid is placed on the lot in the final minutes prior to the determined end time. When an additional bid is placed, the countdown clock resets to a few minutes (the extension time may vary). A lot will not close until the fully extended time has expired since the last bid was placed. To clarify an example is: If a lot is scheduled to close at 5:30pm and a bid is received at 5:29pm, the countdown clock will reset to 3 minutes from 5:29pm. If no other bids are placed, the lot will close at 5:32pm. If a bid is placed at 5:31pm, the countdown clock will reset to 3 minutes and the lot will not close until 5:34pm.
