WHAT YOU ARE BUYING
In the majority of our auctions, you are buying pre-owned farm or construction equipment. We purchase our equipment from pre-owned equipment sources. If there is remaining factory warranty or any additional information that we know of, we will tell you. You should always keep that in mind when you are bidding on items. If you buy a $3,000 item from one of our auctions, you should expect it to perform like a $3,000 item, not a $40,000 item. We are not trying to cheat anyone and we describe all equipment to the best of our abilities. We are not experts with each piece of equipment we sell, but we explain it to the best of our abilities, and we are more than willing to attempt to answer any questions you may have. We are now Kioti, Land Pride, Howse, Southern, and Vicon, and Versatech dealers. New items not in stock typically take about one week for delivery to our location. We can not make any guarantees as to availability, and prices are subject to change. Call Johnston Equipment LLC at 800-427-4155 to inquire.
All information we provide for items, including but not limited to serial numbers, weights, horsepower, and lift capacities, is taken from sources generally deemed to be accurate. We do not guarantee that information but provide it for your assistance. We may tell you that a machine is supposed to lift 5,000 pounds, but if it only lifts 3,000 pounds, that is not our fault and we did not guarantee that. Likewise, if we tell you we believe a machine to be a 1999 model and it is really a 1996 model, we have not guaranteed the year and it is not our fault. If these things are that important to you that they will influence your decision to purchase, you should call the manufacturer yourself or do your own research before entering a bid. All auctions last 7 days and you will have time to do that. We do not lie and we do not deceive, but we are not experts on every machine we sell.
HOURS OF SERVICE
If we are selling a new piece of equipment it will be detailed clearly in that manner. The majority of the equipment we handle is purchased from pre-owned equipment sources. Therefore, we cannot and do not guarantee the hours of service on any of the items we sell. We do guarantee that we never turn back hour meters, tachometers, or speedometers, so the information we report for an item is taken directly from the specific meter. If a machine shows low hours or low miles that do not appear to be correct, we will tell you that. Otherwise, our information is from the machine and it is not guaranteed as to accuracy.
We do not send second chance offers to anyone and we will not attempt to sell items around eBay. This means you should be alert for people emailing you asking you to send money for an item. These are scams because we will not do that. Similarly, if an item is purchased but not paid for, it will be re-listed for auction or direct sale at our facility.
All items purchased from us can remain at our location for 90 days following the close of the auction without incurring any additional charges. However, if an item remains at our location for more than 90 days, the item will be sold to recover storage costs and the original purchaser will not receive any of the proceeds.
PAYMENT & SALES TAX
QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS
For any other questions or concerns, please call us at 800-427-4155. Email is not always the best way to communicate, so please call us and we will be happy to talk to you to answer whatever questions you have. Thank you for watching our auction and thank you for bidding. Happy eBaying.
We accept payment for purchased items by cash, check, or money order when the item is picked up. We do not accept PayPal or credit cards under any circumstances. Payment is due no more than seven (7) days from the end of an auction and it must be in full. Any item not paid in full within 7 days can be resold at the discretion of Johnston Equipment LLC. All non-paying bidders will receive negative feedback.
The buyer is responsible for all shipping costs and for
making all shipping arrangements, but we can help with the arrangements if
asked to do so. All
We are selling all of our items AS IS, WHERE IS. That means that every item is as described and as pictured in the eBay listing. If you are the buyer for an item, you have bought the item and the funds for your purchase will be collected within seven (7) days or when you arrive to pick it up. Presumably, you have taken our advice and inspected the item before bidding so you know it is what you want. You are then responsible for moving the item from our lot to your destination at your own expense. If an item will not load onto a truck or your truck under its own power, we will either push it onto the truck, or we will use a loader or a lift to load it onto the truck. You are then responsible for moving the item from our lot to your destination at your own expense, and the fact that it did not run is covered by the AS IS designation. The shipping at your own expense explains the WHERE IS designation. For these reasons, returns are not allowed. There may be more things wrong with the item than contained in the description, and they generally occur because they are hidden and cannot be seen when describing the item. If there is any part of this Terms of Sale discussion or the AS IS, WHERE IS designation that is not fully understood, please call us for clarification or do not bid.
All buy it now items are available for sale locally and at offline auctions. We strongly suggest that all items be inspected before bidding. Once the item leaves our lot, it belongs to you. There are no warranties expressed or implied by Johnston Equipment LLC.
We suggest, recommend, and/or advise that all potential
buyers call us before purchasing an item, if you have any questions
whatsoever. Please call 800-427-4155 and
ask for Robert or Tim and either will be happy to answer any question you may
have. It is important that you ask your
questions before bidding so that when you receive your item at the end of the
auction you will not be surprised by something you didn’t know. Please read all terms and conditions before
bidding. You are obligated for your bid
price plus the cost of removing the item from our facility to your location. If something happens to the item after the
item is sold, but before you pick it up or have it shipped, the responsibility
for that is yours and not ours. Please
understand this or call us for clarification.
