How does the bidding process works? On all items, there is a date and time specified when the countdown begins. This is the time when the auction goes into a closing phase starting a countdown underway for at least a period of two minuts. If additional bids are placed during this time (last minute), the countdown time will prolong for another minute. The auction ends when no new bids are received during the countdown period (meaning the bidding has been stalled for more than a minute).
All auction objects have been tested by our professional valuers who follow a prescribed test routine. The results are documented in the object description and together with a large number of images the bidders get a good idea of the object. We ask, however, bidders to inspect the object at the display times offered, due the fact all items are sold as is.
Please note! Veteran- and enthusiast cars are described with focus on the object's status from a collector's point of view, as if the car is in original condition, refurbished, repainted, rebuilt, etc. Collector's vehicles are used only to a limited extent and often unused for longer periods. For this reason, the description of veteran and collector vehicles is different vs. utility vehicles. Instead the descriptions of the vehicles are designed to give a good accurate general description as the basis for a collectible value and not as use value.
It is an item that is defective, bad conditions, essential parts missing etc. Items are in great need of renovation, repair or suitable to take spare parts from. The items are tested only in general terms and cannot be claimed.
For auction items, there is often a minimum price that the customer is willing to sell the auction item for (the "reserve price"). The reserve price is set in consultation between the seller and our experts in order to be reasonable, and even quite low, so the item can be sold. If the reserve price is met it's marked in the bid field. If the reserve price is not met, the object can still be sold if agreement is reached after negotiation. The highest bid is binding even if the reserve price is not reached.
In the description an estimate of a possible value of the object is presented. The assessed value shall be regarded as a general guidance for this type of object. Crucial for the bidding is the unique condition, standard and quality for each object. The price at which an item is finally sold can be substantially higher or lower than the assessed value. We recommend customers to adapt the bidding to the described condition of each item.
Bids may be cancelled until 6 hours before auction end. Let us know as soon as possible at firstname.lastname@example.org. Enter the applicable item number, bidder and the bid which must be removed.
After the auction, the winning bidder will receive an e-mail with payment terms and information about the place and time were and when to pick-up the object. Bring a copy of your payment or a payment confirmation from your Bank. Thereafter, the item must be approved on the spot and a binding sales contract is then signed. Don't forget subscribe ev. insurance and to bring the equipment you need for loading, lashing, etc.
For each auction object, there is a buyer's fee as indicated on the item in connection with bid field. The size of the buyer’s fee is shown on each item and varies depending on the item's assessed value. All fees are quoted incl. Swedish VAT.
All items are sold "as is", i.e. in the current condition at the time of purchase. Secondhand goods are normally more or less defected and can have various type of errors, which you as a buyer must count for. Significant errors and deficiencies are described on the web-site but normal wear and tear is not wrong in the legal sense of the word. It's therefore of great importance that buyers carefully check the item before acceptance and retrieval. The seller has no responsibility for any error that occurs after delivery.
At the time of delivery, if you feel that the item does not meet your expectations with regard to the description, photos, age, etc., you have the right to abstain, and then we will refund the buyer's fee and the item's price.
Before any complaint, bear in mind that for any error, damage or defects Bilweb Auctions and/or the seller have no responsibility if:
It's the purchaser that must check that the auction object corresponds to what he or she is entitled to expect, taking into account the description, like the object's age, history and mileage and more.
Buyers, in connection with the shipment shall carefully examine the auction item and confirm that it responds to Bilweb Auctions's description.
Used goods can often have defects which is something that the buyer must expect. According to the Swedish law for consumer protection (Konsumentköplagen) an item sold at an auction is considered as sold "as is". This means that the product is sold in the condition it is at the time of purchase. The seller is responsible only for the defects that exist at the time of purchase, not for errors discovered by the buyer after the deal is closed.
For errors or damages that the buyer should have seen in the display upfront the auction or at the time of removal is not within the responsibility of the seller. The same applies to defects that can be seen from the description of the property, online or on site. Auction purchasing means increased risk for the buyer, but also a good opportunity to do good business.
Remember that normal wear and tear is not wrong in the legal sense of the word. The seller is only liable if the auction item is considerably more worn than one might expect given the age, mileage, field of use, description and more.
Keep in mind that information on the Internet about the auction items are designed to be accessible and easy to read. Bilweb Auctions tests are focusing on things that are important for a collector such as quality, background, original status and overall technical function while normal wear, with respect to age, is described in general terms.
Note: Collectors cars are valuated and described differently compared to utility vehicles.

The applicable buyer's fee is shown for each auction item in the object view on the website.
