No other equipment condition information (runs, starts, etc.) is available other than what is described for each item on the auction website. Condition of property offered for sale is not warranted. Deficiencies, when known, have been indicated in the property descriptions. However, absence of any indicated deficiencies does not mean that none exists.

If a posted offer is deemed unacceptable to CMS for any reason, the eligible Bidder with the next highest bid, who is in compliance with the online terms and conditions, will become the current high offer. It is a violation of law to submit offers using a false name or any other fraudulent information, and such offers may not be processed, even if CMS initially accepts your electronic offer.
