Purchase Conditions

1. Introduction and background

These purchase conditions (the "Purchase Conditions") apply when you as a private individual or as a company or other juridical person (the"Customer"/"you") buy one or more objects on site at one of KVD Kvarndammen's facilities.

1. Introduction and background

These purchase conditions (the "Purchase Conditions") apply when you as a private individual or as a company or other juridical person (the"Customer"/"you") buy one or more objects on site at one of KVD Kvarndammen's facilities.

The agreement is entered into between the Customer and KVD Kvarndammen AB, corporate registration number 556746-1180 ("Kvdcars") on behalf of a client (the "Seller"). Kvdcars has more than 15 years' experience of selling vehicles and other property at auction. The object for sale by Kvdcars by means of bidding (the "Object") is sold by Kvdcars in its own name but on behalf of the Seller.    

Kvdcars always considers its Customers and naturally follows all the rules of consumer legislation and the decisions of the National Board for Consumer Complaints. A Customer must be at least 18 years of age in order to buy an Object. Unfortunately Kvdcars cannot accept purchases by persons aged under 18 or persons whose legal ability to act is limited for other reasons.

When a Customer wins the bidding, what is won is an option: a right, but not an obligation, to purchase an Object. Purchase of an Object is done either on site at one of Kvdcars's facilities or branches or by direct auction; see point 13 below. These Conditions apply in their entirety to purchases. The Customer may not, without Kvdcars's consent, transfer the option to buy an Object or to direct another Customer to buy the Object. There are specific conditions, in addition to these conditions, applying to foreign Customers; see point 17 below.

2. Object and Description

Kvdcars's assignment from a Seller normally includes valuing and writing a description of an Object (the "Description"). Objects are normally used and Kvdcars's intention is that the Description should be as true and fair as possible, but also clear and easy to read.

An Object available for sale by Kvdcars is represented by the Description, which gives information about the Object and its main properties and an estimated auction price.

Kvdcars does not guarantee that all information in the Descriptions of Objects is correct. The Customer must check the Object's condition by viewing or when completing the purchase on site and approve that the condition corresponds to what the Customer might expect with regard to the Description. Kvdcars is not liable for any damages or defects arising from such a Description.

An approximate price at a car dealership as stated in the Description is Kvdcars's estimated market price for a similar object in faultless condition and serves only as guidance for the Customer. The price at which the Object finally sells can be considerably over or under the approximate price at a car dealership. Kvdcars cannot guarantee that the Customer could not find a similar Object at a lower price. The estimated price stated is obtained from Kvdcars's valuers, who are specialists appointed by the Camber of Commerce, in order to ensure as good a valuation as possible. Analyses and evaluations are made from a number of sources, including various industries' pricing material, systematic searches of the internet for relevant offers on both the Swedish and foreign markets and the databases of Kvdcars's valuation company, Kvdcars Bilpriser AB. The Customer may also obtain an impression of the price of the Object on open sources such as: www.bilpriser.se, www.bytbil.se, www.blocket.se, www.mascus.se, www.mobile.de or www.google.se.

Information in a Description may have changed due to further circumstances. If a Description is given in more than one language, the Swedish version applies in the first instance.

3. Viewing and obligation to investigate

The time and place for any viewing of the Object is announced in the Description. Objects are normally available for viewing and collection at one of Kvdcars's facilities or branches. Special conditions for viewing for transport-free (direct) auctions may be found under point 13 below.

The Customer has been able to form an impression of the Object for sale by viewing, either at a Kvdcars facility or branch or at the Seller's premises in the case of a transport-free (direct) auction, and has then submitted a bid based on what the Customer considers the Object to be worth. In cases where viewing the Object has not been possible, the Customer has been able to judge the Object to the best of his abilities by studying the Description and pictures of the Object and by consulting Kvdcars as needed.

Information about the Object in the Description has been designed to be clear and easy to read. Kvdcars's tests of the object focus on safety details and technical function, which have been described in more detail in the Description based on the results of such tests, while what is mainly of a cosmetic nature has been described in more general terms.

Unless otherwise stated by Kvdcars in the Description or when completing the purchase on site, the Object has been inspected and tested by Kvdcars's vehicle technicians or other expert and valued by valuers or specialists. It is however the Customer's responsibility to check that the Object corresponds to what he or she might expect with regard to the Description.

The Object is sold used and in existing condition. The Object offered for sale may have faults and defects. The Customer must therefore carefully investigate and assess the Object's condition. Pictures of the Object in the Description are for identification purposes only and cannot be used to judge the Object's condition. If significant information in the Description is directly misleading however, this may represent grounds for cancelling the purchase.

Kvdcars is not responsible if the Customer has neglected his or her obligation to investigate as above and is not responsible for what the Customer may have noticed or should have noticed if the Customer fulfilled the obligation to investigate. More about Kvdcars's responsibility for the Object may be found in points 9 and 11 below. 

4. Inspection and specific guarantee

The Customer must, in the exercise of the obligation to investigate according to point 3 above, personally or through a representative inspect and approve the Object that the Customer is to purchase. After such an inspection, a binding purchase agreement with Kvdcars can be entered into, for which these Conditions apply in their entirety.

If the bidder with the highest bid for a certain Object has not inspected the Object on site by the indicated/agreed time, the buyer's fee will be charged. The relevant buyer's fee is shown either by the Object or in the Description. If the Customer has ordered transport of the Object from one Kvdcars facility to another, the Customer will also be charged the transport cost, unless otherwise stated. The transport cost appears either by the Object or on a page specified by Kvdcars on Kvdcars's website www.kvdbil.se.

The buyer's fee must also be paid by the highest bidder if he or she has inspected the Object on site, but then chooses not to complete the purchase, without valid grounds. Valid grounds refers to the Object's having been found to have significant faults or defects that are not shown in the Description of the Object. If the Customer has ordered transport of the Object from one Kvdcars facility to another, the Customer will also be charged the transport cost, unless otherwise stated. The transport cost appears either by the Object or on a page specified by Kvdcars on Kvdcars's website www.kvdbil.se.

Kvdcars guarantees that the Object does not have any tax liabilities and that any other residual debt will not be charged to the buying party.

5. Specifics on declarations

When an object is a used car, the description of goods is in accordance with the Swedish Consumer Agency's guidelines for the description of goods for used cars (KOVFS 2002:1). The guidelines include requirements that the Consumer Agency finds to be significant from the consumer viewpoint. They have been prepared after discussion with the national motor industry association Motorbranschens Riksförbund. These guidelines apply when Kvdcars sells used cars to individual consumers. Used car means a car that is primarily intended for the carriage of persons and that has been driven 1,000 kilometres or more.

Kvdcars's description of goods for used cars is available when viewing the Object on the Kvdcars website. Kvdcars encourages the customer to save the description of goods for any future contact with Kvdcars's customer service regarding the car. 

However there is no description of goods in the case of vehicles that are sold on behalf of the enforcement service or bankruptcy administrators, nor for vehicles registered as goods vehicles or vehicles with an estimated sales value of less than SEK 15,000.

6. Charges and Payment

6.1 Payment by the Customer
The Object must be paid for in connection with entering into a purchase agreement between Kvdcars and the Customer and before the Object is handed over. However Kvdcars offers the Customer the opportunity to pay for the Object in advance as stated below. Kvdcars encourages the Customer to have thought out in advance how the Object is to be paid for. Note that there may be limitations to payment alternatives.

Kvdcars reserves the right to not always offer all payment alternatives or to change the method of payment if that chosen by the Customer does not function at time of payment for any reason. If payment for the Object is made at Kvdcars in connection with the purchase, the Customer will receive a receipt at the time of payment. If payment for the Object is made electronically, the receipt will be provided electronically.

A. Direct deposit into Kvdcars's bank account

A Customer may pay for an Object in advance by direct deposit into a bank account nominated by Kvdcars. This is a service that Kvdcars offers to its customers and is entirely voluntary. It is entirely up to the Customer whether to use this service or to pay on site. When payment is made by direct deposit into Kvdcars's bank account, the Customer is requested to always state the object number.

If the Customer and Kvdcars do not enter into a purchase agreement for the Object, the Customer is obviously entitled to repayment of the amount that the Customer deposited into Kvdcars's nominated bank account.

B. Finance via Kvdcars

Kvdcars offers the Customer various finance alternatives for payment for an Object in advance. For more information about how Kvdcars can help a Customer to finance the purchase of the Object, contact Kvdcars's customer service on kundtjanst@kvdbil.se or telephone 010- 167 30 00. This is a voluntary service that Kvdcars offers to its customers. It is entirely up to the Customer whether to use this service or to pay on site.

If the Customer chooses a finance alternative as above, a credit application may be made before the purchase agreement is entered into or before bidding by means of a so-called loan commitment. Separate conditions apply for payment via credit. Contact customer service on kundtjanst@kvdbil.se or telephone 010- 167 30 00 for more information.

C. Bank card (but not foreign bank cards)

The Customer may pay for the Object with a Swedish VISA or MasterCard debit card. Kvdcars does not accept the following methods of payment:

Credit or charge card
Cash payment
Postal order
Cheque
Company card
Foreign card

If the Customer is located outside Sweden, special conditions apply as shown in point 17 below.

6.2 Non-payment
If the purchase has been made but the Customer has chosen one of the payment solutions above and the payment has not been completed by the time stated for such a choice, Kvdcars is entitled to take one or more of the following courses of action.

If payment is not completed as above, Kvdcars is entitled, without first advising the Customer, to sell the Object to another customer at the price that Kvdcars finds appropriate.
With a resale, Kvdcars is entitled to charge the Customer for compensation for costs of storage, transport, necessary repairs, sales costs, insurance and other costs relating to the Object. If the sales price does not cover Kvdcars's receivables and costs for resale, the Customer must pay the difference.

6.3 VAT
If the Object is a car, this is sold including VAT unless otherwise stated by Kvdcars. VAT is also payable on the buyer's fee. Other vehicles and other property are normally sold exclusive of VAT, since these auctions are mainly aimed at business customers. Customers may find more information about VAT for each Object. 

VAT cannot usually be deducted when buying cars and light vans. Business customers must check for themselves whether the VAT on a given sales object is deductible for their business. Kvdcars recommends that business customers check the Swedish Tax Agency's rules with their accountant and in which cases VAT is deductible when purchasing an Object. Kvdcars is not responsible for any assessments regarding VAT.

7. Collection and transport

Collection must occur in connection with the purchase of the Object, i.e. on the day that the purchase agreement is entered into, unless the Customer and Kvdcars specifically agree otherwise. The day the purchase agreement is entered into appears on the confirmation or Description. Kvdcars is not responsible for transport unless otherwise agreed and freight charges are not included in the purchase of an Object. Purchased objects may not be collected until full payment has been received by Kvdcars in accordance with point 6 above, unless Kvdcars and the Customer have agreed on credit payment according to a separate agreement. Special conditions for transport-free (direct) auctions may be found under point 13 below.  

For Objects that are not collected within five (5) working days from the day of purchase, a storage charge of SEK 300 per Object per day will be made unless otherwise agreed between Kvdcars and the Customer. If the Customer is prevented from collecting the Object on the intended date and time, the Customer must contact Kvdcars using the contact information given by Kvdcars.

When collecting the Object, it is the Customer's responsibility to investigate the Object to ensure that it is not defective. For business customers it is especially important to check the Object before or at the time of collection, since claims from business customers after purchase will not be considered; see point 10 below. Business customers that collect the Object with the aid of a representative or transport company cannot approve the Object afterwards.

For Objects that are not collected within thirty (30) working days, Kvdcars is entitled to cancel the purchase and obtain damages in accordance with applicable legislation on purchase. Kvdcars is entitled to take compensation from incoming funds for costs associated with the purchase agreement and cancellation as well as other losses in accordance with applicable legislation on purchase. If the sales price does not cover Kvdcars's receivables and costs for resale, the Customer must pay the difference.

8. Re-registration and insurance of vehicles

All vehicles that are registered in the Swedish vehicle register must be re-registered to the Customer by Kvdcars as soon as possible, normally immediately after entering into the purchase agreement. Insurance is also taken out when entering into the purchase agreement. Kvdcars has a link to the vehicle registry and reports the vehicle as being in traffic unless it is banned from the road or there is some other obstacle. The Customer receives vehicle tax credit at the same time.

Re-registration normally occurs within a few days after sale. In certain cases however, re-registration can take more than two (2) weeks if the vehicle has a so-called leasing block. However this does not affect the Customer's ability to use the vehicle. Neither does it affect the right of ownership.

9. Liability for faults

Kvdcars represents the Seller with regard to responsibility for faults in the Object. The Customer may not approach the Seller directly.

All Objects are sold in existing condition as seen, that is to say the condition of the Object at the time of purchase. Used goods can have defects. This is something that the Customer must bear in mind. For faults in Objects that consist of the Object not fulfilling the agreed properties or (in relation to a consumer) not being in the same condition as the Customer might have good reason to expect with regard to the Object's price and other circumstances, Kvdcars is responsible in accordance with the following rules. Kvdcars urges the Customer to note that normal wear and tear does not constitute a fault in the legal sense. Since the Customer has decided the final price in an auction, no consideration can be given to whether the item might have been overpriced.

The Seller and Kvdcars have an obligation to advise of faults of which they are aware. The Seller and Kvdcars have no responsibility for faults that arise after purchase. The Seller and Kvdcars are not responsible for:

(a) faults that arise from the Object's being exposed to normal wear and tear;

(b) faults, defects or damage that are noted in the Description;

(c) faults that the Customer might have expected in relation to price and age; or

(d) faults that the Customer is or should have been aware of, such as those that the Customer should have noticed through careful perusal of the Description and studying the pictures attached to the Object or such as the Customer should have seen/noticed during viewing in accordance with point 3 above or a test drive.

If the Object is sold as a "repair object", Kvdcars is not responsible for any fault, even if the Object has more comprehensive or other faults than those stated. Kvdcars is not responsible for the description of the Object in the Description being exhaustive with regard to damage, defects or faults. 

The Seller and Kvdcars are not responsible for faults in property that is sold for the enforcement service, bankruptcy administrators or other enforced sales. For these Objects, there is no right of complaint under the Consumer Purchases Act and there is no need for them to have a description of goods.

10. Claims

10.1 General
Kvdcars represents the Seller with regard to questions and claims. The Customer may not approach the Seller directly. The Customer may not cite that the Object is defective unless the Customer sends Kvdcars notification of the fault by the stated deadline (claim).

The Customer has an obligation to investigate the Object in accordance with these Conditions. Faults that are or should have been noticed when the Object is investigated by the Customer in such cases must be notified immediately.

The Customer must claim to Kvdcars immediately a fault is noticed. Claims must be made in writing to the following address: reklamation@kvdbil.se.  A written notification of claim must contain information about which Object the claim refers to, a description of how the fault presents and all other relevant information and circumstances that may be of significance. To avoid misunderstanding, it should be noted that an incorrectly presented bid is no reason for claim. Kvdcars reserves the right to deny a claim if it proves that the Object is not defective.

10.2 Claims by business customers
If the Customer is a business customer, the claim must be presented before the property is transported from Kvdcars's place of sale. Claims from business customers after collection will not be considered, for which reason it is important to carefully inspect the Object before it leaves Kvdcars's place of sale.

10.3 Claims by consumers
If the Customer is a consumer, the claim must be presented as soon as possible after the fault is discovered.

The Customer has a three (3) year right to claim. The right to claim only covers goods that are defective as above and under the Consumer Protection Act.

10.4 Rectifying confirmed faults – consumers only
Kvdcars is entitled to rectify such faults in the sold Object as the Seller is liable for. Kvdcars is also entitled to refer the Customer to another equivalent Object. Note that there is no right to a price reduction in the case of the purchase of used goods at auction.

With claims, Kvdcars must always be notified before any form of repair is carried out. In such cases, an estimate of costs must be sent to Kvdcars. Kvdcars must in this way be given the opportunity to first assess and approve the estimate of costs or to rectify the fault with its own resources.

If the correction of a fault in an Object does not occur within a reasonable time after presentation of a claim by the Customer, or if the fault is of material significance to the Customer, the Customer is entitled to withdraw from (cancel) the purchase and, against return of the Object, receive the amount that was paid for it. Before any compensation for direct expenses such as travel expenses can occur, these must be substantiated by the Customer by means of receipts or other evidence.  In the event of cancellation of purchase, Kvdcars is entitled to make a deduction for use amounting to 0.5% of the purchase price for every whole month since the date of purchase and 0.5% of the purchase price for every 1,000 kilometres driven, which is in line with MRF's industry practice.

In the event of a substantial fault, Kvdcars reserves the right to buy back the Object for the auction price, less a deduction for any wear and tear etc., unless otherwise agreed with the customer.

If the Customer has made a claim and no fault exists for which Kvdcars is liable, Kvdcars is entitled to compensation for its costs.

11. Limitation of liability

The following limitation of liability applies if the Customer is a business customer. Kvdcars has no liability for faults beyond what is described above. Kvdcars's total liability for each object is limited in all circumstances to the value of the specific Object. Kvdcars is not liable for direct or indirect damage or fault.

12. Special conditions for seized goods
Kvdcars also offers for sale seized goods on behalf of the enforcement service. Special conditions apply to the sale of such Objects, as follows:

The Objects are sold by executive bidding/auction sale on behalf of the enforcement service. The enforcement service is entitled to put Objects up for sale or end sales of Objects at short notice. Objects are sold as seen, in the condition they are in at the time of sale. 

Kvdcars does not perform any comprehensive test of executive sales property and the Description is only general. It is up to the Customer at time of viewing to establish the Object's condition and check the Description. The Object is not subject to approval on collection: the Customer is bound by the winning bid regardless of the Object's condition. Thus, with the purchase of an Object that is sold by executive bidding/auction sale, the Customer does not enter into any binding purchase agreement with Kvdcars after winning the bidding, for which reason there is no right of withdrawal or claim.

13. Special conditions for transport-free (direct) auctions

Under certain circumstances, Kvdcars performs a transport-free (direct) auction. A transport-free auction means that an Object remains with the Seller when a purchase agreement is entered into and is not transported to any of Kvdcars's facilities or branches. Direct auctions are most often held when an Object is difficult and very expensive to transport or when the Seller needs to keep the machine in operation during the sale. Transport-free auctions are only applied if the Customer is a business customer. Whether a transport-free auction is applicable is stated for each Object.

With a transport-free auction, Kvdcars sends a staff or external tester to perform testing and documentation before the sale. When the purchase is completed and payment made, the Object is handed over from the Seller to the Buyer at its current location.

Any viewing of the Object for transport-free auction is done at the Seller's premises by arrangement. The same conditions for viewing, obligation to investigate, faults and claims also apply to purchases by direct auction. When the auction is concluded, Kvdcars contacts the highest bidder and enters into a purchase agreement. The Seller is informed by Kvdcars when the purchase has been completed and a time for collection is then booked between the Customer and the Seller. On collection, the Customer hands over a document from Kvdcars that functions as a receipt and is signed by both parties. The receipt document confirms the Customer's and Seller's exchange of actions in the form of handover and collection.

14. Force majeure

If Kvdcars's fulfilment of its undertakings according to the Conditions is prevented or made significantly more difficult due to circumstances outside Kvdcars's control, such as general labour conflict, war, fire, lightning strike terrorist attack, changes in the rules of the authorities or the intervention of the authorities, this represents grounds for release from liability and other consequences.  If Kvdcars's fulfilment of the Conditions is prevented for longer than three months by these circumstances, the Customer will be entitled to cancel the purchase.

15. Supplementary services: finance, insurance, transport etc.

Kvdcars offers information about a number of supplementary services from other companies. More information may be found on Kvdcars's website www.kvdbil.se under the tab "Other services and offers", as well as in information about each Object on the website. The companies that sell these supplementary services are entirely responsible for them and the Customer signs a separate agreement with them.

16. Applicable law and disputes

Disputes regarding the interpretation or application of these Conditions must be interpreted in accordance with Swedish law and should in the first instance be resolved by negotiation between the parties if possible. In the event that the parties are unable to agree, the dispute will be resolved in the Swedish courts.

17. Conditions for sale to countries outside Sweden

Different administration fees depending on which pick up procedure you choose as a buyer.

Temporary registration maximum: SEK 4 995

Kvdcars's customer service can advise what applies for the vehicle in question. The vehicle's documents and Swedish certificate of registration are handed to the Customer/courier on delivery. If the Object is collected with a shipping agent guarantee or similar from a forwarding agent, no deposit is needed.

These conditions were determined by Kvdcars on 11-06-2015
