2. BUYERS's OPTIONS

2.1 Giving bid mandate

2.1.1 The bid mandate process

2.1.1.1 The registered User may entrust GBC to make bids at different vehicle auction portals for a given item, on behalf of the User and in the GBC's own name in the following insurance categories regarding the UK insurance's system: “C, D, U, X, Z”. Is it possible to give bid mandate in a different insurance category that is not listed here, however for a category “B” vehicle the User can give bid mandate regarding the article 2.1.1.2.

 

2.1.1.2 Terms of the bid mandate for a category “B” vehicle.

The User must sign and accept an other contract that is part of this one. This second contract for the category “B” mandate will be provided by GBC Trans s.r.o. This contract must be done before the User give any bid mandate in the GBC system. If this contract is not made of before the actual bidding, then the bid will not be placed by GBC. More information about GBC Trans s.r.o can be found in the article 2.1.1.3.

 

2.1.1.3 The partner program of GBC Professional Ltd & GBC Trans s.r.o.

These companies are working together for the User's sake, to provide the best possible option to buy vehicle in UK especially in the matter of category “B” vehicles. The User gives bid mandate on the website of GBC, but the actual buying is going through of GBC Trans s.r.o, registered in Slovakia.

Therefore the User must sign and accept the contract of GBC Trans s.r.o as well. In this contract the User will confirm its acceptation of this online contract again.

 

2.1.1.4 The bid mandate may be given electronically ONLY via the website to items offered there. GBC will not accept bid mandate in any other way, like SMS or phone. The way of the bid mandates be found under the F.A.Q. section on the website. GBC makes bids at the UK auction houses at the price specified in the bid mandate.

 

2.1.1.5 In case of bid mandates, the User acknowledges that when making a bid, GBC will use exclusively the price indicated by the User, and GBC cannot guarantee the winning of any item since GBC has no influence on bids made by others. If the User does not know the “bid increments” of the UK auction houses, then the GBC always round the bid mandate if it is necessary to place the right live bid as it is required by the auction portal. For example: If the User bid mandate is £545 but the auction portal's bid increment in this price range is £20, then the GBC will place £560 instead of £545.

 

2.1.1.6 “Flexibility” agreement.

For the better chances of winning, the User shall use the GBC's “Flexibility Agreement” what is offered separately from GBC. However the User acknowledges that this agreement is part of this online contract as well. With this, the User entrust GBC to increase its bid mandate with one or more bid increments top of the given price, if the live bidding is running and the GBC believes the vehicle can be won with this step. If the User is interested in this agreement, then GBC will send it to the registered email address of the User.

 

2.1.1.7 GBC cannot guarantee the cancellation of a bid. If the User terminates the bid mandate on the website before the time set in FAQ, the bid mandate won't be executed. However, during the period indicated in FAQ or bid mandate placed after that, it is impossible to revoke it. According to GBC's T&C if a bid mandate placed in the system and GBC won the item on the auction, the User has to pay the price and the GBC’s fee on the working day following the invoice. More about the payment can be found in the article 2.1.5. Otherwise the User breach the contract.

 

2.1.1.8 The data provided by GBC is came from another auction portal server. If an auction portal take back an item temporary, but the User already made its mandate in the system before the item was taken back and the item will be available again – even weeks later – in the system, the GBC will be handling these items the same way as others. If an item will be won by GBC the User must take it and pay it regarding this T&C. If the User does not want an item like this, then it should be removed from the system by the User. It is always the User's responsibility to follow and mange its bid mandate in the system. Dependently when an bid mandate was placed, if GBC won something the User must take it and pay it, because the bid mandate was placed by the User therefore the responsibility is its. The GBC or its partners do not guaranty the result of an auction on the they when the item end date has been marked! If the User will receive notification about the winning days later, the User still need to accept it and take and pay the vehicle! NO ACCEPTATION!

 

2.1.1.9 The User acknowledges that several Users may give a bid mandate simultaneously concerning the same item. Consequently, the User can place a higher bid mandate on an item that is already registered in the bid mandate system.

 

2.1.1.10 Details on items won are available via the GBC's on-line system through the User’s own account. GBC reserves the right to inform the User via e-mail, which is considered equivalent to the on-line system.

 

2.1.2 Conditions to place a bid mandate.

The User must upload its Online Wallet to be able to place a bid mandate.

Every bid mandate requires a specific deposit amount. To place bid mandate on more then one item, it requires more deposit! The deposit is a kind of insurance for GBC for the full payment.

 

2.1.2.1 To place a bid mandate on a Vehicle the User must have available balance for deposit in the Online Wallet. It is 10% of the wished bid mandate price but minimum £200/Vehicle.

 

2.1.2.2 At case if GBC won the vehicle for the User.

The User can choose different payment option during the payment process regarding the article of

2.2.3.3. Because a deposit paid by the user, the User's option are the followings:

- use the paid deposit as a part of the payment. (In other words, 100% of deposit can be use for the payment.)

- leave the deposit in the Online Wallet and pay the full amount of the item. (recommended if the user has attention to purchase more items in the future.)

 

However GBC recommend the User to upload the Online Wallet with a higher amount. If the User has enough balance for the full payment then it can be done immediately after the purchase! This will help the User to get the item(s) much quicker compare with a normal payment.

 

2.1.2.3 At case of NON payment.

If the item will not be paid regarding the article of 2.1.5 then the User will lose the deposit!

There can be some situation those only come up at the time of the loading. They can be because the size of the vehicle or the special build of the vehicle. (article 2.1.6.3.) If that so, then GBC keep the right to act without notify the User, to keep ahead the interest of the User. These acts can be anything that helps the quick loading. Also these works will be invoiced to the User later on.

 

2.1.3.4 Available extra services

The extra services are NOT available for all vehicles that the User can find in system of GBC. It always depends from the location of the vehicle. An extra option only available if the system shows it for a vehicle. If the User cannot see these option but it wants one, then it is only possible to ask in a written form, in e-mail. These queries from the User will be charged separately and uniquely. All e-mail between GBC and the User are parts of this contract.

 

2.1.3.4.1 Cutting and storage as the Extra service.

The User can choose from different extra option such as cutting during the bid mandate on the GBC's website. The available options and the descriptions are always coming up in a pop up window of the website.

 

2.1.3.4.2 The conditions of the cutting!

2.1.3.4.2.1 The cutting is logical option only if the User intends to buy two vehicle as they must be in pair. This is because the transportation as it is only worth this way. The User is responsible to buy two vehicles for cutting in the given time. After the User won an item then its has 10 days to won another one! If the User will not intend to won other vehicle then GBC applies £10/day storage fee after 10 days from the date of first winning. GBC can follow the user activities in the system and if there is not enough activity, means the User is not sending in enough bid offer so with other words the User does not show interest to won other vehicle, GBC will apply this section on the User! The User could buy a half vehicle from the GBC's own stock – if there is available. (Article 2.2 GBC's Auction & Buy It Now items)

 

2.1.3.4.2.2 If the User did not win anything for a while and the storage fees reach the level of the first won item's value, then GBC has the right to sell the cut vehicle to an other User to reduce the its loss. In this unfortunate case the User will lose the paid vehicle and the paid amount as well. GBC will not pay the item's value back because irresponsible behaving of the User made loss for GBC. GBC will not invoicing other fees or fine to the User but its user account can be suspended or the other restrictions can be applied – depend from GBC!

 

2.1.3.4.2.3 If the User wish to buy vehicle with an extra service then a separate contract must be made between the User, GBC and transport company regarding the information of UK Environmental Agency.
