Online Absentee High Bidder Notification:
The Successful Winning High Bidder on LoneStarOnline.com will be considered an ABSENTEE BID and act as the STARTING BID on the floor at the LIVE portion of the auction on Thursday, July 12, 2012. An email will be sent out on Friday, July 13, 2012 notifying the successful ABSENTEE BIDDER.

Acceptance of Terms:
All persons participating in online bidding agree to and accept all Terms and Conditions unequivocally and without exception. All participants hereby agree and accept that the State of Texas nor Lone Star Auctioneers, Inc. will be held responsible for any failure to execute any online bid on behalf of any participant(s) for any reason whatsoever. All bidders hereby acknowledge that they understand that if they place the high bid on any lot or lots in the LoneStarOnline.com portion of the auction they are not the winner of that lot or lots and that when they have made payment for their high bids those bids will be used as the starting bid in the live Webcast auction. If their bid prevails at the live Webcast auction, then they will be the winning bidder.

Other Important Info:
24/7 Online Bidding for this auction is being offered as a means to provide an ABSENTEE BID opportunity for those who may not be able to attend the live auction or participate in the webcast. The highest bid received for each lot in the 24/7 auction will become an ABSENTEE BID and will be used as the OPENING BID at the Live auction to be held on Thursday, July 12, 2012 in Dallas, Texas. This means the highest online bid is only a final sale when and if it is the highest final bid at the live auction. If no higher bids are received during the live auction, the 24/7 absentee bid will stand and becomes the FINAL winning bid. If, however, a higher bid is received at the live auction, the 24/7 absentee bidder will be unsuccessful and will have their pre-paid monies returned in full.

Based on our previous experience, we suggest that 24/7 bidders decide the maximum value of each lot to himself or herself and bid that amount. Lowball bids are very seldom successful in either 24/7 or live auctions. Important Note: Only the amount showing at the close of the Online Absentee bidding will be taken to the Live auction. It is pointless to use the AUTO BID feature, as we will not have access to this information.

Winner Notification:
Successful Online Absentee bidders from the live auction will be notified via email on Friday, July 13, 2012. All successful Online Absentee Bidders MUST sign and return the Terms & Conditions Form and Certification Form along with their Cashiers Check payment NO LATER THAN Tuesday, July 17, 2012 at 5:00pm. Any bidder(s) who do not pay for their online purchases will not be allowed to register or participate in any future auctions conducted by Lone Star Auctioneers, Inc. Please call Lone Star Auctioneers with any questions or assistance you may need for bidding at the next State of Texas auction (800-275-3336).

Sales Tax:
Texas State Sales tax of 8.25% will be collected from all taxable buyers taking possession of their purchases in Texas for all equipment and vehicles where titles are not available. Texas State Sales tax will be collected from ALL buyers who do not complete appropriate resale documentation upon registration for the auction and prior to making purchases.
