Where we can see any physical faults with the lots, we have described on the lot what we can see, however we have not tested any of the lots and therefore if there are any faults not visible to us then we will not have described them. If the bidder has any doubt whatsoever as to whether the lot is not working then please bid accordingly or don’t bid at all. We recommend all bidders view the lots before bidding where you will be able to do minimal testing of the lots (depending on its size and nature).
