Conditions of sale
All items will start at $1. The auction will last for 2-3 days. Auction lengths may change around holidays. It is at Bid 1 Up’s discretion on how long an auction will last. At the end of the auction, the auction time will reset to 2 minutes if anyone bids in the last 2 minutes.
Terms and Conditions of Buying
All buyers are required to register on-line and fill out the appropriate forms before buying. All bidders must be at least 18 years of age to bid. One or two forms of payment via credit card is required to bid
Every item will be listed with a stock photo (a photo from the internet) and a few photos of the item we are selling. The stock photo may be the exact same type of item or something very similar. It may vary in color or model and may or may not have all accessories in the stock photo. We will do our best to inform you in the notes if something is missing. The lot will include what the retail value of the item is, a short description of the lot, and the condition of the lot.
The condition of the lot will be determined by Bid 1 Up and is a subjective determination of the condition of the lot. The lot will have a condition that is either LIKE NEW, OPEN BOX, or DAMAGED.
Condition of the lots are as follows:
LIKE NEW: The item looks to have never been used, has minimal signs of handling, and tested for power only. Items that take power will not be tested for functionality. Large items that only take 110 power will be tested for some functionality. Example: a refrigerator will be tested to make sure it is cooling down in temperature. There is no guarantee that the item is like what it was when it is brand new. Items that take batteries may or may not be tested and the condition of the item will be determined by how the item looks. Large items that have never been opened and with minimal signs of damage to the box will be considered like new and only pictures of the box will be displayed.
OPEN BOX: The item may or may not have missing pieces, may or may not have been used, or sometimes we just don’t know if the item has missing pieces. The item may or may not have minor scratches or dents. The item is not fully tested unless otherwise stated in the notes.
DAMAGED: Noticeable damage upon opening the box. The item does not power on. It is up to you (the bidder) to determine whether or not you wish to bid and buy this item. There is no guarantee that this item is fixable.
