Terms and Conditions for Online Auction

Updated: Mar 20

  1. Bidding will begin on Saturday 16 March 2024 and end on Wednesday, 20 March 2024 at 17:00.

  2. An in-person auction will be held on Wednesday, 20 March 2024 at 18:00, where bidders may bid against you. The in-person auction will begin at the reserve value. 

  3. Auction items are priced based on their fair market value.

  4. Bids must meet the minimum bidding increment requirement or risk disqualification. The minimum increment is R500.

  5. Bidding on an item multiple times is allowed.

  6. All bids and sales are final. (In terms of the Consumer Protection Act 68 of 2008, the “cooling off period” does not apply to goods bought on auction. Once a registered Buyer has placed a bid, his/her bid cannot be retracted or cancelled).

  7. You acknowledge that once the Event Manager running the auction has confirmed you are the highest bidder, you will be expected to pay for the item(s).

  8. Bidders agree to pay in full at the end of the auction (depending on whether the auction items go into the in-person auction).

  9. In order to bid in the auction, the bidder must be of legal drinking age.

  10. Bidders assume all risk involved – SASA will not be held liable for any damages to auction items once they have left the premises i.e. if they are couriered.

  11. Shipping, courier fees and local taxes will be for the winning bidder’s account. A Representative will advise winning bidders in due course of a time and location to arrange courier collection.

  12. Items may change or be withdrawn without notice and SASA reserves the right to refuse or remove any bid in its absolute discretion.

  13. All illustrations of a lot in any online catalogue are intended merely as guidance for Bidders and do not provide definitive information as to appearance, vintage, or damage to any Lot. SASA only warrants that the descriptions of the products themselves may be construed as a fair representation of the nature of such a product.

  14. To the best of SASA’s knowledge, all wine lots have been stored under good conditions. SASA is not responsible for any flaws or faults inherent in the wine. 

  15. Winners will be determined at the end of the auction.

  16. In the event that two or more bids equal the highest bid, the Lot shall be awarded to the bid received first.

  17. If after the end of the in-person auction your online bid is the highest, you will have won the lot. 

  18. Unless otherwise agreed by SASA, items will not be released to you until payment has been received and cleared funds have been received.

  19. In the event of the Representative being unable to contact a winning bidder within 3 days of the closing of the auction, or of the payment not being received within 5 days of a winning bidder being notified, SASA reserves the right to award the Lot to the next highest bidder.

  20. Online bids are dependent on the bidder’s internet connection, hardware and/or software and SASA shall not be liable for any unsuccessful bids that were not received within the time frame of the online auction due to poor connection or unforeseen circumstances.

  21. All queries can be directed to info@sommeliers.org.za
