We guarantee that each Motor Vehicle will have clear title as soon as the relevant Motor Vehicle is sold at auction and monies for the Invoice Amount for that Motor Vehicle are cleared in our account. Bidders may find that when they perform a PPSR check (highly recommended), that in some cases the Motor Vehicle may have a security interest registered on the PPSR. This security interest will ordinarily be released from the PPSR as soon as the Motor Vehicle is sold at auction and monies for the Invoice Amount for that Motor Vehicle are cleared in our account.

3. Motor vehicle condition 3.1 Please refer to the individual lot description for a general description of the Motor Vehicle’s condition. Lot descriptions ordinarily have images or photographs of the Motor Vehicle. Any descriptions, images or photographs we provide of the Motor Vehicle must be taken as a guide only. Please satisfy yourself as to the condition of the Motor Vehicle. 3.2 You acknowledge and agree that:
  1. We do not test Motor Vehicles to check their condition. Any general description we provide of a Motor Vehicle’s condition is based, at most, on an external walk-around of the Motor Vehicle, our visual inspection, and engine start up. We generally do not drive Motor Vehicles;
  2. Motor Vehicles may have damage, mechanical issues and body blemishes which we have not sighted and which we have not listed in any lot description provided;

  5. If a Motor Vehicle is described as 'Used', the Motor Vehicle may have experienced moderate to heavy usage by a previous user;
  6. We do not test Motor Vehicles to ensure that they function according to the manufacturer's specifications; and
  7. Motor Vehicle accessories may vary from those originally supplied by the manufacturer.
