These photos and descriptions are to be used as guidelines only. All bidders are responsible for their own personal inspection of the item(s).


Odometer, Mileage & Hour Meter readings are assumed to be correct. However, these assumptions do not constitute a guarantee.

Burton W.

Consigners have the right to bid until the reserve price is met. Consigners are not authorized to bid beyond the agreed reserve. Consignors may not bid on their lots in an absolute auction. Some Lots may have minimum bids, a minimum bid is not a Reserve.
