The auction catalogue contains the bidder number of the participant.
9.4.2. auction4you gives ample opportunity to inspect the Vehicle on the day of the auction.
9.4.3. The information provided on the vehicle in the catalogue or on site at the auction does not relieve the bidder or buyer from the inspection of the vehicle.
This also applies to bidders who are not present on site but submit bids by telephone, fax, CarLife or other means of long-distance communication. These bear the risk that they will not be able to detect obvious defects during an inspection; auction4you therefore recommends that every bidder comes for the auction on site.
9.4.4. Evident and universally recognizable defects of the actual condition vis-a-vis the catalogue´s description, are considered approved and are not subject of complaints.
9.4.5. Vehicles coming to the auction will be individually proclaimed and auctioned in the order in which they are listed in the auction catalogue. The auctioneer may change the order and also bring vehicles not listed in the auction catalogue to auction.
9.4.6. The information on the vehicle provided by the supplier is visually and properly displayed at the auction, particularly in the auction catalogue. Detected defects described in the auction catalogue are clearly and appropriately indicated at the auction, in particular by yellow light in the traffic light system accordingly with the guidelines “traffic light system, complaint and liability regulations” of auction4you. If the auctioneer discovers deviations from the vehicle description in the auction catalogue during the auction, he will indicate this via a traffic light system or by announcement.

9.4.9. The auctioneer shall call for bids at the beginning of the auction and after each bid placed. The contract shall be awarded to the bidder whose bid is the highest after three calls and has reached the reserve price requested by the Supplier. However, the highest bidder is not entitled to a knockdown. Immediately after the knockdown, the buyer must show his customer number, which is on the auction catalogue.
9.4.10. If the highest bid is less than the reserve price set by the supplier, the auctioneer can accept this bid subject to the consent of the supplier without being obliged to do so. In this case, the auctioneer declares acceptance under reservation. If the supplier or Auction4you gives the consent to the bidder within 24 hours, the purchase contract is concluded. For this period, the bidder whose bid was below the reserve price is bound to his last bid.
9.4.11. With the knockdown, a purchase contract is concluded between the supplier and the bidder, whereby the supplier’s purchase price claim against the buyer is assigned to Auction4you. Auction4you is authorized by the supplier to assert contractual and legal claims against the buyer.

However, this only applies if the deviations in value of a defect do not exceed a value of EUR 300 net. The local retailer’s cost price at the time of receipt of the notice of defect is decisive.
If the deviation of the general traffic conception represents an increase in value compared to the description in the setting, this does not constitute a defect, unless it is a deviation that would affect a delivery negatively.
If there is disagreement between the parties to the contract of sale as to the type and amount of the deviation which reduce the item´s value, auction4you shall, in the name and on behalf of the buyer, commission a court-sworn expert for vehicles with the assessment for Automotive parts and accessories of whether, following the reasoning mentioned above, whether an impairment loss represents more than EUR 300 net or 5% of the purchase price.
