Bidding We recommend that bidders put in their maximum bid, or also called proxy bid, when placing a bid online. This does not mean you will have to pay the amount you bid; you only pay one bid increment more than the next highest bid, and only up to your maximum bid. The software system will play out the bids as you would at a live auction and only uses the funds required to beat out the under-bidder at the prescribed bid increment.

Email Communication As per Canada's new anti-spam legislation (effective date July 1, 2014), we are required to secure your consent to communicate with you electronically. By registering for this auction, you are opting in to receive auction notices from Rosehill Online (rosehillonline.ca). Your privacy is important to us -- your email address will not be shared with any other party.

Reviewing Your Bids During an auction you can check the status of your bids at anytime. Note that no bids can be withdrawn after the auction, for any reason, after auction begins to close.
The amount bid can be increased but cannot be decreased. Rosehill Online may, at their discretion, allow you to withdraw and resubmit a bid in the case of bids containing an obvious typographical error before the auction begins to close. You may forward a request to withdraw a bid and resubmit a correct bid by immediately sending an email to the Rosehill Online, however, there is no guarantee that any bid will be withdrawn.

Warranties & Guarantees As third party sellers Rosehill Online does not offer or honour warranties on any items unless expressed in our comments at the beginning of the item description. Any reference to warranties or guarantees in the description by the manufacturer is not a guarantee from Rosehill Online and we cannot offer original bills of sale for registering items with the manufacturer.

Due Diligence It is the onus of the bidder to know the item they are bidding on. Information is found in the title, sub-title, description and photos. We endeavour to make the representation of the item as accurate as possible. If you have any questions or need clarity on a description please contact us by email prior to the closing of the auction.

“See Comment” Banner The “See Comment” banner is our way of noting an extra comment outside of the manufacturers description has been added by us. This could be a note of a flaw, imperfection, missing part(s), or any condition we deem important when considering bidding on this item. This does NOT however take away the need to always read descriptions and know the item before bidding. We have the right to use this banner at our discretion and using the banner is for emphasis only and not a requirement for all comments made on our listings.

Bidders Obligation By placing a bid, you are making a binding and irrevocable offer to purchase the Item at any price up to the maximum bid amount you submit. If you win, you must complete the transaction, subject to any contractual right or other right at law to rescind the contract in certain circumstances. Failure to complete transaction without lawful reason is not only a breach of your contract with the Rosehill Online but also a breach of these terms & conditions.

Soft Close Items close at regular intervals noted on the items closing countdown clock. To prevent a bidder from 'sniping', all bids made within 2 minutes of the lot closing will force an item to stay open for an additional 2 minutes. This will continue until all counter bidding has ceased. Soft close auto extension begins once the auction begins to close at 7pm.

The Winning Bid The winning bid in an auction will be the highest bid. In the case of equal bids, the earliest bid received will be the winning bid. If a higher bid is subsequently withdrawn or removed then Rosehill Online shall have the right to accept the next highest bid.

Auction Records In the unlikely event of a dispute, you agree to accept as true the information that we have in our online records and bidding history provided by our software.

Additions or Deletions We reserve the right to remove and/or add lots and/or items to the sale at any point during the auction.

Catalogue Errors & Omissions If a description does not match a picture in a lot, the description takes precedence.

Condition of Lots Sold Our best efforts are made to represent all items accurately in descriptions and photographs. We inspect items and define their condition to the best of our ability. Though all description and commentary are believed to be correct, neither Rosehill Online nor Consignor makes any warranties or representations of any kind with respect to the property, and in no event shall be held responsible for having made or implied any warranty of description, sizes, genuiness, authorship, attribution, provenance, period, culture, source, origin, condition, etc.

Lot and Item Condition Definitions The following list details the criterion Rosehill Online uses to determine the condition of lots and items sold on our auction.

  • BRAND NEW - An unused, undamaged item. Because we may inspect items original seal may be broken. Packaging could be damaged although the comntenets are untouched and undamaged. 
    This item may have been undeliverable or not accepted by original purchaser. The item could be a discontinued item or overstock but not sold or used.
  • NEW - an item deemed New cannot be considered Brand New because it has been opened by another consumer. There is no sign of wear or damage. The packaging and manuals are present but the packaging could be damaged. The product has been removed from the packaging but placed back in it to return. Items in this category are returned, for example, because it was the wrong model, the colour was incorrect, size was wrong or changed their mind.
  • NEW CONDITION - an item considered in New Condition has been used but wouldn't be considered Used by definition because the item is in excellent condition. The item then can be considered lightly used with possible light wear marks but functions exactly as intended with no missing or malfunctioned parts. 
  • NEW CONDITION - NOT TESTED - reserved for items that appear to be in excellent condition but are not able to be tested. This would include, but not exclusively; electronics, computers, instruments and gauges, motors and any item that shows all the signs of being operable but, without testing ability, we cannot certify that it works as intended. If winning this item it is up to the bidder to test the item as soon as possible and if not working request for a return.
  • NEW OTHER - this condition is the same as a NEW item as described above, but with a flaw that is described in the product description. This could be a new item that has been damaged in transit, or has a blemish that may not be of concern to some buyers, a dent or mark that doesn’t render the item inoperable. We will always note the reason the item is
  • OPEN BOX - an item that has been returned or may have been a demonstration or display model. The original box or packaging is not present. A product that has been assembled or assembled then disassembled before retuning. Manuals maybe missing. Though all or any of these conditions are true we consider the item to be in excellent condition with no or very little wear or signs of use.
  • OPEN BOX - Scratch & Dent - The product may or may not be in the original package or in the case of appliances and furniture not in a box at all. The item has some cosmetic damage from transport or mishandling but does not affect the function of the product. These flaws are shown in the photos of the image. Manufacturers warranty may still apply - see details
  • REFURBISHED - An item that has been professionally restored to working order by a manufacturer or manufacturer-approved vendor. This means the product has been inspected, cleaned, and repaired to meet manufacturer specifications and is in excellent condition. This item may or may not be in the original packaging. See product description for full details.
  • USED - An item that has been used previously. The item will have visible signs of being used but is fully operational and functions as intended. See the description for full details.. An item listed as Used cannot be returned. 
  • SALVAGE - An item that may not function as intended and may not be fully operational. This includes items that are defective in ways that render them difficult to use, items that require service or repair, items that are locked or can't be activated, or items missing essential components. This item may be good for parts only. See the description for full details. Items listed as Salvage cannot be returned.
  • AS IS - The item is considered ‘As Is’ when the item may or may not operate as intended and the quality or condition of integrity cannot be guaranteed. We will state why we are listing it “As Is” to the best of our ability, but even then cannot be held responsible for its condition. Bidder is taking a risk when buying in this category as we do not accept returns.

Pickups Pickup location is at 1047 Cooke Blvd., Burlington, ON L7T 4A8. The purchaser can pick up their items with a paid receipt. Items can not be picked up until the invoice is paid. Government issue ID is required to pick up items by the original purchaser or by a representative added to your account as an Alternate Pick-up Person. Removal shall be at the expense, liability, and risk of the purchaser. Do not bid if you are unable to have your items picked up. All items must be picked up within 7 days after the event closes. Extensions for holding items are granted by Rosehill Online's discretion only. All items left on Rosehill Onlines property for more than 14 days after the event closes OR 7 days after receiving a Transfer verification email will be considered abandoned. See Following.

Abandoned Items We understand situations occur making it very difficult or impossible to pick up items in the week after the auction. We will hold items for a reasonable amount of time if requested, but only if specifically authorized by Rosehill Online. Due to storage space and the liability of holding sold items, any items not picked up after 14 days of the event’s closing OR 7 days after a Transfer notification email is sent will be placed back into Rosehill Online’s possession and ownership, unless prior consent from Rosehill Online. Refunds are not offered on items won on auction due to abandonment as this would enable bidders to not honour their bids due to buyers remorse or a change of mind.

Returns Items are eligible for returns if the following conditions exist: The item has been either misrepresented by us or it is listed as functional and it is not. A return request must be made within 7 days after pick up of items to qualify for a refund unless expressed otherwise by Rosehill Online. Please note, because the item is listed in a certain condition, for example New, that does not mean the item does not require inspection. We do our best to represent items as accurately as possible but items still require inspection as soon as possible so you don't risk getting something you didn't expect. 

Refunds - Full or partial refunds are applied to the buyer's registered credit card. Refunds take 5 - 10 business days to deposit into that account. If the invoice is paid in cash then a credit is applied to your account.

Personal & Property Risk We will not be liable for damage or injury to individuals or their property.

Claims No claims regarding goods purchased will be allowed.

Legal Compliance You shall comply with all applicable domestic and international laws, statutes, ordinances and regulations regarding your use of our service and your bidding on, listing, purchase, solicitation of offers to purchase, and sale of items.

Indemnity You agree to indemnify and hold Rosehill Online harmless from any claim or demand, including reasonable attorneys' fees, made by any third party due to or arising out of your breach of this Agreement or the documents it incorporates by reference, or your violation of any law or the rights of a third party.
