Terms and Conditions
The following is a legally binding contract between you and SalvageSparefinder Limited ("salvagesparefinder.co.uk"), which determines your contractual relationship with SalvageSpareFinder Limited and your behaviour on the site. These terms and conditions shall be referred to as "the Agreement". Please note that by pressing "accept" at the end of this Agreement you are agreeing to be bound by the terms of the Agreement, in particular, you are committing yourself to be bound by any bid you submit or to any item that you upload for auction.
1 Scope of Agreement
This Agreement sets out the rights and obligations of SalvageSpareFinder Limited and all users of salvagesparefinder.co.uk ("the Site") including those who place items for auction on the Site ("Vendors") and those who bid for items placed for auction on the Site ("Dealers") in relation to all online auction services offered by SalvageSpareFinder Limited through the Site ("the Services").
2 Operation of Auction Services
2.1 a) An "Auction" is an online auction where SalvageSpareFinder Limited provides an online venue to allow Vendors to offer for sale Salvaged Vehicles to Dealers in accordance with this Agreement.
2.1 b) SalvageSparefinder also offers the opportunities for users to take part in auctions run by a 3rd party.
2.1b.1 In a 3rd party auction:
- The customer must Pay a deposit before the end of the auction, and within 48 hours of the initial enquiry. The deposit will be £1000 or 10% of the expected sale, whichever is the smaller.
- The customer must pay the full outstanding balance within 5 hours of the auction ending.
- The customer must pickup the car within 5 days.
- The customer is liable for the purchased car
2.2 The Salvaged Vehicles made available through Auctions are offered for auction by the Vendor or by the Vendor as agent of a third party. SalvageSpareFinder Limited is not a party to any Auction and acts only to provide the means for these Auctions to be conducted.
2.3 The contractual terms and conditions which will apply as between a Dealer and the Vendor in relation to the Salvaged Vehicles which are the subject of any Auction shall be those specified by the Vendor, whether in writing or otherwise. It is the Vendor's obligation, and not that of SalvageSpareFinder Limited, to notify Dealers of those terms and conditions.
2.4 SalvageSpareFinder Limited reserves the unilateral right to foreclose or extend Auctions or to cancel or withdraw listings or to terminate entire Services, where SalvageSpareFinder Limited at its sole discretion believes it has good legal or technical reasons to do so (including, without limitation, technical difficulties experienced by SalvageSpareFinder Limited, a Vendor or technical difficulties on the Internet).
2.5 SalvageSpareFinder Limited may in its absolute discretion refuse or remove bids or remove from sale or re-offer for sale listings or Salvaged Vehicles in respect of which there is a dispute, which are withdrawn by the Vendor, or which fail to draw bids above the reserve. SalvageSpareFinder Limited may in its absolute discretion change the timing of sales. Where practical, SalvageSpareFinder Limited shall provide reasonable advance notice to the Vendors and Dealers of any actions it may take in accordance with this condition.
2.6 SalvageSpareFinder Limited agrees to use its reasonable endeavours to process bids which are placed in respect of Salvaged Vehicles offered by the Vendor, but does not guarantee that any individual bid will be submitted.
2.7 SalvageSpareFinder Limited is in no respects bound or required to offer any of the Services to all or any of the Vendors or Dealers.
2.8 It is a requirement that in order to be entitled to use the Services a Vendor must register with SalvageSpareFinder Limited and must have agreed to SalvageSpareFinder Limited Vendor terms and pay a registration fee of. SalvageSpareFinder Limited reserves the right to suspend or terminate this Agreement and/or suspend or terminate the Vendor's ability to offer Salvaged Vehicles for sale in any Auction, or ability otherwise to participate in any Auction if it appears to SalvageSpareFinder Limited that the Vendor is or appears to be in breach of any of the provisions of this Agreement, including, without limitation, any misuse of the Services.
3 Reserve Prices and Bids
3.1 Salvaged Vehicles may be offered by the Vendor subject to a reserve price (the "Reserve"), which may be higher than the starting bid. The Vendor agrees that the winning bid in any Auction will be the highest bid which exceeds any reserve and meets any other express conditions of the relevant Auction.
3.2 By listing Salvaged Vehicles on the site, the Vendor agrees to be bound by the highest successful winning bid made by any Dealer in respect of the Salvaged Vehicle, subject in all circumstances to the right of SalvageSpareFinder Limited to intervene in any Auction under Clause 2 of this Agreement.
3.3 The Vendor acknowledges that SalvageSpareFinder Limited does not guarantee or undertake any liability for or responsibility for the ability of any bidder to pay the price under any Auction.
3.4 Proxy Bidding. A Dealer may use Proxy Bidding to bid in an Auction. To set a proxy bid, a Dealer must enter (i) a higher figure in the "proxy bid" box than the displayed current price or starting price. The system will automatically raise the Dealer’s bid by a bid increment each time it is superseded until either the Dealer wins or the winning bid is raised to match or exceed the Proxy Bid Limit. The system acts like another bidder, as determined by the proxy bidding logic.
3.4.2 For the avoidance of doubt by setting a Proxy Bid Limit it is agreed between the Dealer and SalvageSpareFinder Limited that SalvageSpareFinder Limited may bid incrementally by the stated bid increment up to that limit on your behalf. The proxy bidding process is no different from all other bidding on our site, however when an auction reaches its specified closing time and no further bids can be placed, time will be allowed for competing proxy bids to be incrementally placed by the system on behalf of their respective User until a winning bid is reached. Once you have set a Proxy Bid Limit and entered a bid you cannot go back and change it. If you submit another Proxy Bid Limit your highest Proxy Bid Limit will be accepted.
3.4.3 For the avoidance of doubt, it is possible for the proxy bidder to lose when the winning bid stands at the proxy bidder's limit, i.e. if another bidder reaches the proxy bidder's limit first then the proxy bidder can only match that bid and will therefore lose.
Also if there are two proxy bids placed with identical high bid limits, the bidder who placed their proxy bid first will be the winner, therefore one of the bids will lose even though the winning bid stands at both of the Proxy Bid Limits.

11. Salvage Auctions
11.1 Access. The Dealer may not access the Services unless the Dealer is a registered user.
11.2 Passwords. The password used by the Dealer to access the SalvageSpareFinder Limited site must not be passed or revealed to anyone else. The Dealer accepts full responsibility for any damage caused to the Services or to any other Dealer, Vendor or third party as a result of such disclosure.
For the avoidance of doubt, the Dealer must not disclose their password to any third party in order to enable the third party to access the vehicle auctions on the SalvageSpareFinder Limited site.
11.3 Salvaged Vehicles. The Salvaged Vehicles offered for sale on the Site shall each be categorised as either Category C, Category D or Category X. Unless expressly stated otherwise, all Salvaged Vehicles will have been reported to MIAFTR and will show up on vehicle checks.
11.4 A Category B Vehicle is a Salvaged Vehicle which is so structurally damaged or devoid of parts that it is not possible to repair it economically or safely. A Dealer who purchases a Category B Vehicle (a "Category B Dealer") shall be allowed to remove salvageable parts, and shall then be required to dismantle the Category B Vehicle and crush the shell, frame and chassis in accordance with ABI guidelines. Air bags and seat components must be properly disposed of in accordance with manufacturers instructions and, in accordance with insurance industry requirements, must never be resold.
The processing of Category B Salvage must comply with the guidelines displayed in the "Code of Practice for the Disposal of Motor Vehicle Salvage" (ABI Code of Practice) issued by Motor Conference.
11.5 A Category C Vehicle is a Salvaged Vehicle which is damaged to the extent that the retail cost of repair to the vehicle exceeds the retail pre-accident value thereof. Category C Vehicles may be subject to a Vehicle Identity Check (VIC) prior to being returned to the road and as such will not come with a V5. It is for the Dealer to check whether the Salvaged Vehicle requires a VIC and for the Dealer to arrange a VIC if necessary in order to obtain a new V5.

11.7 A Category X Vehicle is a vehicle which has been subject to an insurance claim but which has sustained minimal or nil damage or which may have been repaired in accordance with manufacturers specifications, and therefore categorisation as per the Code of Practice for the Disposal of Motor Vehicle Salvage does not apply.
11.8 Indication of Damage and Images. For each Salvaged Vehicle auctioned on the Site, SalvageSpareFinder Limited shall provide an indication of the damage to the Salvaged Vehicle (the "Indication"), and one or more images (the "Images"). The actual condition of a Salvaged Vehicle may vary substantially from the Indication, and the appearance of the Salvaged Vehicle may vary substantially from the Images. The Indication is not intended as an authoritative, completely accurate description of the Salvaged Vehicle, and therefore may not be relied upon by the Dealer as such. The Images are not intended as a completely accurate representation of the appearance of the Salvaged Vehicle, and therefore may not be relied upon by the Dealer as such. Without limitation to any right of intervention in any Salvage Auction expressed elsewhere in this Agreement, SalvageSpareFinder Limited expressly reserves the right to intervene in any Salvage Auction to amend the Indication and/or the Images of any Salvaged Vehicle. Notwithstanding that right, SalvageSpareFinder LIMITED EXPRESSLY EXCLUDES ANY RESPONSIBILITY OR LIABILITY IN RESPECT OF ANY LOSS ARISING OUT OF THE INACURACY OF ANY INDICATION OR ANY IMAGES OR IN RESPECT OF ADDITIONAL DAMAGE IDENTIFIED ON DELIVERY/COLLECTION.
11.9 Signwriting on vehicles. SalvageSpareFinder Limited expressly reserves the right to remove or obscure (by whatever means it deems necessary) any signwriting that may be on a vehicle put up for auction, after the auction has concluded but prior to that vehicle being released from the Contractor’s premises.
11.10 Inspection. SalvageSpareFinder Limited may, in its sole discretion, make certain Salvaged Vehicles available for inspection by the Dealer (an "Inspection"). The Dealer is encouraged to conduct an Inspection whenever such Inspection is made available. For the avoidance of doubt, the Dealer does not have a right to an Inspection, and nothing in this Agreement obligates SalvageSpareFinder Limited to provide an Inspection.
11.11 Suspension or Termination of a Dealer’s Account. SalvageSpareFinder Limited reserves to itself the unfettered right at its sole discretion to suspend or terminate an account held by any Dealer in order to prevent that dealer from participating in auctions and without prejudice to the generality of this right may do so when a Dealer is or appears to be in breach of any of the provisions of this Agreement, including, without limitation, by providing false registration details or otherwise misusing the Services. Any person who holds such a suspended or terminated account may not re-register for the Services without SalvageSpareFinder Limited prior written consent.
12 Bidding in Auctions
12.1 Bids. The winning bid in any Auction will be the highest bid which exceeds any reserve and meets any other express conditions of the relevant Salvage Auction ("Winning Bid"). If a bid made by a Dealer is followed by a higher bid by another Dealer that is later removed by SalvageSpareFinder Limited for any reason, SalvageSpareFinder Limited may in its sole discretion decide whether to accept the previous highest unsuccessful bid as the Winning Bid. With this exception, all unsuccessful bids will lapse after closure of the relevant Auction.
12.2 Bids are not retractable. If the Dealer places the Winning Bid, and the Dealer's bid is accepted, then that Dealer (the "Winning Bidder") shall be legally obligated to complete the transaction. A relisting charge of 10% of the final sale price will be decucted from the Dealer's card should the transaction not be completed.
12.3 Without limiting any other remedies, SalvageSpareFinder Limited may suspend or terminate a Dealer account if the Dealer is found (by conviction, settlement, insurance investigation, or otherwise) to have engaged in fraudulent activity in connection with the Site (including but not limited to bid manipulation).
13.1 SalvageSpareFinder Limited shall not make credit terms available to, or otherwise extend credit to Dealers using the Services.

13.3 The Winning Bidder shall be required to make confirmed payment in full and collect the vehicle within 7 calendar days (including day of auction closure) of the date of the auction closing (the "Payment and Collection Period"), and in any case before a Salvaged Vehicle will be released from the holding garage (the "Contractor"). All payments are inclusive of VAT (where VAT is applicable). Any winning bidder who does not complete the transaction will be liable for a relisting fee of 10% of the final sale price.
13.4 SalvageSpareFinder Limited reserves the right to cancel the registration and all associated rights of any Winning Bidder who does not make payment in full within the Payment and Collection Period.
13.5 THE WINNING BIDDER IS REQUIRED TO MAKE FULL PAYMENT TO THE SELLER IN RESPECT OF THE SALVAGED VEHICLE THAT HE HAS SUCCESSFULLY BID FOR AND ALL RIGHTS OF THE WINNING BIDDER TO SET OFF (WHETHER BY LEGAL OR EQUITABLE SET OFF OR OTHERWISE) AMOUNTS CLAIMED AGAINST SalvageSpareFinder LIMITED AND/OR DUE FROM SalvageSpareFinder LIMITED AND WHETHER IN RESPECT OF ANOTHER SALVAGED VEHICLE OR OTHERWISE IS EXCLUDED. FOR THE AVOIDANCE OF DOUBT, EACH WINNING BID IS A SEPARATE TRANSACTION.
13.6 Your account with SalvageSpareFinder Limited is solely for your own use. The password restrictions detailed in clause 10.2 above mean that you should be the only person able to make payments on your account.
13.7 Payments received by SalvageSpareFinder Limited will be applied to vehicles in date order, starting with the oldest vehicle purchased for which there is an outstanding payment for the vehicle or any associated costs.
14 Collection of Salvaged Vehicles
14.1 The Dealer must collect the Salvaged Vehicle from the Contractor within 7 calendar days of auction closure. Failure to do so will result in the Dealer being liable for Storage Fees ("Storage Fees") as follows:
Days after Auction Closure
£12.50 + VAT per day
15 days or more
£20 + VAT per day
The Dealer is required to pay the said storage fees to the Contractor who has stored the Salvaged Vehicle.
14.2 The Dealer must telephone the Contractor's premises 24 hours before collecting the Salvaged Vehicle to confirm that the Salvaged Vehicle is available for collection. Failure to comply with this requirement may lead to the Contractor denying the Dealer access to the Salvaged Vehicle.
For the avoidance of doubt, if a dealer fails to telephone the Contractor 24 hours prior to collection in order to confirm the availability of the Salvaged Vehicle for collection, then no compensation will be made for the journey if on arrival the Salvaged Vehicle is not available for release.
14.3 THE DEALER SHOULD UPON DELIVERY OR COLLECTION OF THE SALVAGED VEHICLE CHECK THE SALVAGED VEHICLE AS THIS IS DEEMED TO BE THE POINT AT WHICH THE DEALER HAS ACCEPTED THE SALVAGED VEHICLE. REFUNDS AND COMPENSATION WILL NOT BE GIVEN UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES ON A SALVAGED VEHICLE AFTER A DEALER HAS ACCEPTED IT. IN ANY EVENT REJECTION CAN ONLY TAKE PLACE WITHIN 7 CALENDAR DAYS OF THE DATE OF THE AUCTION CLOSING ("PAYMENT AND COLLECTION PERIOD").
14.4 The Dealer hereby agrees that it shall use suitable vehicles for the collection of the Salvaged Vehicles, such vehicles to be roadworthy and safe, fit for purpose, generally presentable and comply with all relevant legislation.
14.5 The Contractor may, in its sole discretion, offer to deliver the Salvaged Vehicle to the Dealer. Such arrangement, if made, is strictly an agreement between the Contractor and the Dealer, and in no way involves, includes or obligates SalvageSpareFinder Limited.
14.6 Cherished/Personalised registration numbers do not form part of nor are they included in any sale transaction.
14.7 Where the Salvaged Vehicle has not been picked up 14 days after the auction closure date SalvageSpareFinder Limited reserves the right to retain possession of the Salvaged Vehicle and the Vendor will retain title as detailed in the preceding paragraph.

16 Dealer's Obligations After the Sale
