4 Selecting Gear Auction Process
4.1 The Selecting Gear Platform auction process operates as follows.
4.1.1 Stage 1. As soon as reasonably practicable once Selecting Gear has approved a Vehicle or Motoring Ephemera as suitable for sale on the Selecting Gear Platform, Selecting Gear will curate the content and produce a draft listing of the Vehicle Lot for the Seller’s final approval.
Unless and until the Seller approves the draft listing of the Vehicle Lot the Vehicle Lot will not be published on the Selecting Gear Platform. Once the Seller has selected “approve listing” on the Selecting Gear Platform this shall constitute the Seller’s final and unconditional approval of the Vehicle Lot for immediate auctioning via the Selecting Gear Platform.
4.1.2 Stage 2. Following the seller’s approval of the Vehicle Lot, Selecting Gear will publish the Lot on the website where It will sit as a Pre-Auction Lot on the Platform until a reserve is triggered. During the Pre-Auction Period the Seller may not make any changes to the Vehicle Lot without the written consent of Selecting Gear. During the Pre-Auction Period buyers may view the Vehicle Lot Listing, receive information about the history of the Vehicle Lot and arrange viewings of the Vehicle Lot.
4.1.3 Stage 3. At the moment that the reserve Is triggered, the Vehicle Lot will become a Live Auction. The Live Auction will operate for the Live Auction Period.
4.1.4 Stage 4. At the end of the Live Auction Period, as soon as Selecting Gear has received the Buyer Fee, Selecting Gear will introduce the name and contact details of Seller to the Winning Buyer and the Winning Buyer to the Seller in order for the Winning Buyer and Seller to thereafter conclude the sale and purchase of the Vehicle Lot at the Winning Bid Amount between themselves. The introduction of the Winning Buyer to the Seller and the Winning Bid Amount shall remain confidential.
4.2 Selecting Gear has a right to cancel an auction at any time for any reason without providing any reason for doing so.
5 Buying a Vehicle on the Selecting Gear Platform
5.1 In order to place a bid to buy any Vehicle or Motoring Ephemera on the Selecting Gear Platform all buyers must register an account with us on the Selecting Gear Platform.
5.2 When a Buyer places a bid for a Vehicle Lot by pressing the “Bid Now” button this is the Buyer’s unconditional and irrevocable offer to the Seller to buy the Vehicle Lot at the price of the bid. Once a Buyer has made a bid it may not be withdrawn or cancelled and it shall remain valid as a legally binding commitment to buy the Vehicle Lot at the price bid unless before the end of the Live Auction Period another higher bid is received from another buyer whereupon it shall lapse and the higher bid shall prevail.
5.3 At the end of a Live Auction the Winning Buyer:
5.3.1 shall be notified that they have won the Auction and in accordance with clause 3.6.1 and clause 11.3 the Winning Buyer must go on to complete the purchase of the Vehicle Lot with the Seller; and
5.3.2 shall be required to pay the Buyer Fee to Selecting Gear being an amount equal to 3% plus VAT (on Lots up to £49,999), or 2.5% (on Lots above £50,000) of the Winning Bid Amount subject to:
(a) a minimum amount of £400 plus VAT (or, solely on number plates, £250 plus VAT); and
(b) a maximum amount of £5,000 plus VAT.
5.4 In order to pay the Buyer Fee the Buyer must complete payment via the Selecting Gear Platform. We use a third party payment provided “Stripe” for the purposes of receiving your payment.
5.5 The Buyer Fee is due and payable following the completion of a successful Auction via the Selecting Gear Platform even if the Buyer and Seller do not go on to complete an agreement between them for the sale and purchase of the Vehicle Lot for any reason.
5.6 We shall not notify the Seller of the identity of the Winning Buyer unless and until we have received payment of the Buyer Fee. If, however, payment of the Buyer Fee is not received by us from the Buyer and Seller goes on to sell the Vehicle Lot to the Winning Buyer or any other party known to the Winning Buyer (for example any person Connected to the Winning Buyer) in bad faith to circumvent the payment of the Buyer Fee to Selecting Gear, then we have the right to claim the Buyer Fee from the Winning Buyer or Seller.
5.7 The Buyer acknowledges that they are provided with sufficient opportunity to view, inspect and obtain any independent opinion they may require in relation to a Vehicle Lot. Moreover, it is the Buyer’s responsibility to satisfy itself with the accuracy of a Vehicle Lot including the value, condition, description, ownership and provenance before making a bid at Auction.
6 Selling a Vehicle on the Selecting Gear Platform
6.1 In order to sell any Vehicle or Motoring Ephemera on the Selecting Gear Platform all sellers must register an account with us on the Selecting Gear Platform.
6.2 In order to sell a Vehicle or Motoring Ephemera with us you need to submit your request via the Selecting Gear Platform and upload all the various vehicle ownership, outstanding finance and history information requested and in the case of a Vehicle select whether you wish to use our Regular Trigger Auction or the Hidden Trigger Auction. The submission of your request is not a guarantee that we will accept your Vehicle or Motoring Ephemera for Auction on the Selecting Gear Platform and we reserve the right to refuse to accept any submissions in our sole and absolute discretion for any reason and at any time. However, typically we may refuse a submission request where we are not provided with at least a reasonable level of evidence to show the Seller has ownership or the Vehicle or Motoring Ephemera is not premium, luxury or of a collectable nature. Your request to sell your Vehicle or Motoring Ephemera on the Selecting Gear Platform shall only be deemed accepted by us at the point we make a live listing of the Vehicle or Motoring Ephemera on the Selecting Gear Platform as a Pre-Auction.
6.3 We will only accept your order when we email or send a notification through the Selecting Gear Platform to confirm this (Confirmation Email). At this point a legally binding contract will be in place.
Right to cancel
6.4 You have the right to cancel a contract within 14 days without giving any reason. However, you do not have the right to cancel if you requested for us to start providing services during the cancellation period and any of the services are fully performed (i.e. the work is completed) during this period. This is further explained in clauses 6.8 and 6.9 below. In relation to auctioning a Vehicle, once a Seller has approved the Vehicle Lot for auction in accordance with clause 4.1.1 the Seller will lose the right to cancel during the Auction Period. If the Seller still goes on to withdraw their Vehicle from an Auction after approving a Vehicle Lot for Auction then the Seller shall be responsible for Buyer Fee in full and notwithstanding clause 5.3.2 in these circumstances the Buyer Fee shall be 3% plus VAT of any reserve price set for the Auction. If no reserve price was set for the Auction the Buyer Fee shall be based 3% plus VAT up to £5000 plus VAT of the higher end of any pre-auction estimate value for the Vehicle Lot as may have been discussed between the Seller and Selecting Gear. If no pre-auction estimate value was discussed between Selecting Gear and the Seller then the Buyer Fee shall be based on 3% plus VAT up to £5000 plus VAT of Selecting Gear’s own assessment of the value of the Vehicle (to be determined in Selecting Gear’s sole and absolute discretion). Further, in addition to the Seller losing the right to cancel as stated above, a Buyer will also lose their right to cancel once a bid has been placed in accordance with clause 5.2.
6.5 The cancellation period will expire after 14 days from the day of the conclusion of the contract.
6.6 To exercise the right to cancel, you must inform us of your decision to cancel this contract by a clear statement (e.g. a letter sent by post or email) using the contact details at the top of this contract. You may also use the model cancellation form available in the schedule to these Terms but it is not obligatory.
6.7 To meet the cancellation deadline, it is sufficient for you to send your communication concerning your exercise of the right to cancel before the cancellation period has expired.
6.8 We will not start providing any of the services during the 14-day cancellation period unless you ask us to. When you place an order for services, you will be given the option to tick a box to request for us to start providing the services during the cancellation period. By ticking the box, you acknowledge that you will lose your right to cancel this contract once the services are fully performed (i.e. the work is completed). If you do not tick the box, we will not be able to start providing the services to you until the cancellation period has expired. We are not obliged to accept your request.
6.9 This means that if you requested for us to start providing the services during the cancellation period and the services are fully performed (i.e. the work is completed) during this period, you lose your right to cancel and will be required to pay the full price under this contract even if the cancellation period has not expired.
6.10 This does not affect the rights you have if your services are faulty. See also clause 10 below.
Effects of cancellation
6.11 If you cancel the contract, we will reimburse to you all payments received from you unless you requested for us to start providing the services during the cancellation period, in which case you must pay us:
6.11.1 for the services we provided up to the time you told us that you want to cancel this contract, which will be an amount in proportion to the services performed up to that point in comparison with the full price under this contract; or
6.11.2 the full price under this contract, if you lost your right to cancel this contract because the services were fully performed (i.e. the work was completed) during the cancellation period.
6.12 We will make the reimbursement without undue delay, and not later than 14 days after the day on which we are informed about your decision to cancel the contract.
6.13 We will make the reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise; in any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of the reimbursement.

However, we reserve the right to remove content which in our opinion is in breach of these Terms.

10.4 The Seller warrants and confirms that:
10.4.1 the Seller has the necessary authority, power and capacity to enter into this contract and to convey ownership of the Vehicle Lot with full title guarantee and free from encumbrances to the Winning Buyer;
10.4.2 the Seller is the beneficial owner of the Vehicle Lot or has authority from the beneficial owner to sell the Vehicle Lot subject to these Terms; and

11 Accuracy of and Reliance on Vehicle Lot Listings
11.1 When the Seller approves the draft listing of the Vehicle Lot in accordance with clause 4.1.1 the Seller is warranting that all information comprised within the Vehicle Lot is true, accurate and not misleading in all material respects. The Seller shall notify Selecting Gear if the Seller becomes aware during an Auction of any information in the Vehicle Lot which becomes untrue, inaccurate and misleading. If an Auction is terminated by Selecting Gear because it becomes to light after the start of an Auction that information provided by the Seller was untrue, inaccurate or misleading in any material respect, then the Seller shall be responsible for paying the Buyer Fee in full to Selecting Gear at the same rate calculated under clause 6.5 where a Seller withdraws their Vehicle from an Auction after approving a Vehicle Lot.
11.2 Whilst Selecting Gear will use reasonable endeavours to ensure the information comprised within a Vehicle Lot is accurate based on information provided to it and actually to hand to Selecting Gear, such information is not being independently verified and Selecting Gear has no duty to verify ownership, condition, mileage, provenance, conduct HPI or other checks, make any enquiries or any take account of any other relevant factors relating to a Vehicle Lot. No liability, howsoever arising, is or will be accepted by Selecting Gear nor any of their directors, officers, employees, affiliates, agents or advisers for the fairness, accuracy or completeness of the information (including any estimates, forecasts, assumptions or statements of opinion or expectation) contained in a Vehicle Lot or in any other information supplied or made available, in writing or orally, in connection with Vehicle Lot whether before, during or after a live auction, or for the consequences of any reliance upon or other use of any such information. Photographs and video of Vehicles and Motoring Ephemera are for illustration purposes only and may not provide a complete and accurate representation of a Vehicle and Motoring Ephemera. No representation or warranty, express or implied, is or will be made with respect to the fairness, accuracy or completeness of the information comprised within a Vehicle Lot or any other such information. In particular, but without limitation, no representation or warranty is given as to the achievement or reasonableness of, and no reliance should be placed on, any estimates, forecasts, assumptions or statements of opinion or expectation contained in a Vehicle Lot.
11.3 A Vehicle Lot does not purport to contain all the information that a Buyer may want or require about the Vehicle Lot. Prospective buyers must make their own independent assessment of the merits of the Vehicle Lot and conduct their own due diligence as they deem prudent for the purposes of deciding whether or not to participate in a Live Auction and if so the amount to bid. In respect of the mileage of a Vehicle it is possible the mileage at the end of the Auction Period may be more than the published mileage due to test drives and transportation. The Seller warrants the final sale mileage will not be more than 1000 miles greater than the published mileage.
