WARRANTIES & GUARANTEES

Abbreviations in the description, Eg. (Runs & Drives) are given as an observation only. Abbreviations do not imply any form of guarantee or warranty. All items are sold with all of their faults, incompleteness and imperfections. If you have not inspected the equipment, assume that it does not run, it is in an unsafe state and unfit for immediate use or beyond repair.
The winning bidder enters into a contract with Redcorn Limited to pay for the item/s from the point of purchase.
All items become the responsibility of the buyer if they have won the auction (at the point of purchase). We recommend that the buyer make any required insurance arrangements straight away. Auctions are at the Sellers’ risk up to the time of sale and the Buyers’ risk after that. If auctions are demonstrated to prospective Buyers this is done at the Sellers’ risk. Redcorn Limited accept no responsibility for loss or damage no matter how it arises. Title does not pass to the buyer until the item has been sold.
The Buyer of any item is responsible for complying with all legal requirements as to the construction and use of that item and for obtaining all authorisations necessary before the item can be used. It is a condition of sale that any necessary work is carried out (and in particular that any motor vehicles are made roadworthy) before the auction is used.
