    • Buyers will bid on items using their allocated number which must be shown to the Auctioneer immediately following the fall of the hammer. The item becomes the responsibility of the Buyer immediately following the fall of the hammer. Following the end of the sale buyers are required to pay the hammer price to the Treasurer within two hours of the end of the auction. Payment may be made by Credit or Debit card, or cash. Buyers will then receive a receipt / release note and be able to remove the purchased items from the site under the direction of the Auction Marshalls. Buyers may not remove purchased items from the site until they have been paid for in full and a receipt / release note issued. 
    • The Auctioneers decision in respect of the validity of any bid will be binding. 
    • Any sold or unsold items remaining on the auction site after the end of the event will be assumed to be unwanted and disposed of by Mid Wales Vintage Machinery Club Ltd.
