 11. Bidding for an item or items

If you are a buyer bidding for an item you confirm the following

It is your responsibility to arrange an inspection of any item you intend to bid on.

DGA uses Social Media to promote its auction items that are for sale. It is therefore the responsibility of anyone participating in an DGA auction to check the make and model of the vehicle in the ‘description’ part of the vehicle page before placing a bid.

You will check and confirm the accuracy of any of your bids

You confirm that you understand and agree that all bids you make are a legally binding obligation.

Manual Bid – by entering your value into the bid box the system will take the highest bid entered as an immediate, binding bid. You can manually increase this bid in the relevant increments for that lot

Max Bid  – by entering your Max Bid value the system will take your highest bid. Max bids placed before the Reserve is met, will instantly jump either all the way up to your max bid, or the Reserve set amount, whichever is the lower.

Once a bid has been accepted by the system it cannot be deleted. The Delete Max Bid function will only delete bids in excess of your Current Winning Bid.

You are making an irreversible contract to purchase the item.

The site uses anti- sniping software which ensures fairness to all bidders – if a bid is received in the last seconds of a natural auction end, the auction will go into a 2 minute overtime period for each subsequent bid. You cannot under any circumstances withdraw a winning bid.

If your bid is the winning bid you will pay for the item within 5 days , unless otherwise agreed in writing with the buyer and DGA.

If you fail to transfer funds in the allotted time frame you agree to pay DGA the sum of €1,000 + VAT.

At you own volition you will independently determine the description, ownership, value, condition, authenticity and quality of the item.

You will settle and pay shipping and or delivery costs associated with the item including but not limited to taxes, fees and or any other costs.

In the event of a buyer failing to complete a sale, we will endeavour to sell the Lot to an underbidder.

You warrant that the funds you use for your purchase of an item have no link with criminal activity including, without limitation, money laundering, tax evasion or terrorist finance

You will not work in concurrence with others to manipulate the price of an item.

You will not enter false bids and or any other form of manipulation or activity designed to distort, disrupt or manipulate any part of the auction process.

We have the right, at our absolute discretion, to withdraw any item. We are not required to provide any reason for exercising this right of withdrawal. There is no appeal process.


  12. Collection of the vehicle

Unless otherwise agreed in writing with the seller, arrangements must be made within seven calendar days of the end of the auction to collect the item from the DGA who will only release the item to the buyer once they have received cleared funds to the amount of the Purchase Price.
