Terms and Conditions - ADOT Auction

Effective July 1, 2014, ADOT Equipment Services will conduct all vehicle and equipment auctions online.

There is a full list of Terms and Conditions on the equipment’s bid page at Public Surplus.

Guarantee Waiver
All property is offered for sale "as-is, where-is." The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) makes no warranty, guaranty or representation of any kind, expressed or implied, as to the merchantability or fitness for any purpose of the property offered for sale.  The Buyer is not entitled to any payment for loss of profit or any other money damages - special, direct, indirect, or consequential.

Description Warranty
The description of property offered for sale has been compiled from available data and there is no guarantee or warranty on the part of ADOT as to number, condition, or quality of property offered. Refunds or adjustments will not be made. Verbal comments by custodians of the property concerning the condition of property are not considered by ADOT, nor will they be grounds for disputing an award of property. If property purchased is equipment to be handled or driven and could possibly cause injury, no matter how remote, you are urged to have the equipment inspected by a qualified individual prior to driving or using the equipment.

Consideration of Bid
ADOT reserves the right to reject any and all bids and to withdraw from sale any of the items listed. Further, "An employee of the owning or disposing agency shall not directly or indirectly purchase or agree with another person to purchase surplus property if that employee is or has been directly or indirectly involved in the purchase, disposal, maintenance or preparation for sale of surplus property." (Arizona Administrative Code R2-15-303.E.5)

Notice of Award
Successful bidders will receive a Notice of Award by email from PublicSurplus.com. ADOT will send a confirming email with payment instructions to the successful bidder.

No property may be removed by the successful bidder prior to full payment of the purchase price being received at the ADOT. ADOT cannot be held responsible for late payments.

ADOT will notify you upon receipt of payment. You may then contact the responsible party listed for that item and arrange for a mutually convenient pick up time. You will need to bring the payment receipt or the auction item(s) will not be released to you.

If you are picking up an item for someone else, you will need all a copy of the receipt showing the item was paid (photo copies are acceptable) plus a note from the designated "winning bidder" specifically naming you as their authorized representative, along with your own ID.

Vehicle Titles
ADOT will issue a title or certificate upon receipt of payment. Titles may be subject to any restrictions as indicated in the item description on the website. Open titles cannot be issued. ADOT will not issue replacement titles.

Default shall include (1) failure to observe these terms and conditions; (2) failure to make good and timely payment; or (3) failure to remove all items within the specified time. Default may result in termination of the contract and suspension from participation in all future sales until the default has been cured. If the Buyer fails in the performance of their obligations, ADOT may exercise such rights and may pursue such remedies as are provided by law.

Acceptance of Terms and Conditions
By submitting a bid, the bidder agrees that they have read, fully understand and accept these Terms and Conditions of Online Sales, and agree to pay for and remove the property, if the bid is accepted, by the dates and times specified.
