Auction and membership Terms and Conditions for Business Customers

1. Introduction and background

These Terms and Conditions of auction and membership for business customers ("the Terms and Conditions") apply between the company or other legal entity ("Customer"/"you") and Kvd Heavy Equipment AB / Kvdpro ("The Agent"), organization number 556531-9919. By accepting the terms, the company or other legal entity you represent becomes a registered member of Kvdpro. Separate Terms and Conditions apply for private customers, see Terms and Conditions of Auction and Membership for Consumers.

The Terms and Conditions apply to the Customer's membership with Kvdpro, to the use of Kvdpros website www.kvdpro.com and related pages (the "Website") and to the services, such as the opportunity to submit a bid and sales opportunity, which Kvdpro provides on the Website (the "Services"). If the Customer does not accept to be bound by these Terms, the Customer may not use or gain access to the Services.

After a completed and won auction or fixed price sale on the Website, the Customer may be given the opportunity to purchase an object ("the Object"). Separate Purchase Terms and Conditions for Business Customers apply to such purchases (see attached to these Terms and Conditions).

By approving and accepting the Terms and Conditions, the Customer and its representatives undertake to abide the Terms and Conditions. As a member of Kvdpro.com, the Customer accepts these Terms and Conditions in their entirety and with this the Customer does the following;

  1. confirms that the information in these Terms and Conditions has been fully read and understood;
  2. confirms and warrants that the information provided by the Customer is complete and accurate;
  3. confirms his consent to, and confirms and undertakes all obligations for the Customer specified in these Terms and Conditions and the Agent's handling of the decision-making process for the purchase of objects;
  4. approves that he has read the information about personal data and consented to the use of cookies in accordance with Kvdpros Privacy and Security Policy ("Website Policy").
  5. appoints the Representative who shall act in the Customer's name and on behalf of the Customer in connection with all matters relating to the conclusion and completion of the Terms and Conditions with the Agent regarding Objects, including (without limitation), ordering, signing all documents, collecting objects, at transportation and issuing or receiving payments in connection therewith.

The Terms and Conditions, Kvdpros website policy and the information provided by Kvdpro on the Website constitute the entire agreement between the Customer and Kvdpro regarding the use of the Website and the Services.

2. Kvdpros role and the client

Kvd Heavy Equipment AB conducts sales via kvdpro.com through auction and fixed-price sales of new and used machines, vehicles, and equipment ("Objects"), both within and outside Sweden's borders on behalf of the Client. Kvdpro appraises and sells property mainly on behalf of others, for companies, private individuals, and the public sector ("Client"). Like all other auction companies, Kvdpros’ role, against commission, is to convey property from companies, private individuals, and authorities etc. (the “Clients”), which commission Kvdpro to sell vehicles and other property, to buyers.

In some situations, the Agent may also sell and export Objects to buyers outside Sweden or where either the specified delivery address or the expected final place of delivery, directly or indirectly, is otherwise outside Sweden (such transactions are collectively referred to as "Export"). Due to the increased levels of risk, as well as applicable legal requirements and restrictions imposed by the Agent's shareholders and internal codes of conduct, the Agent is obliged to take certain precautions to ensure compliance with these and to limit the Agent's and the Client's risk exposure, including in the form of legal and administrative sanctions, financial losses, and damaged reputation. The Agent does not allow sales outside the EU/EEA borders.

3. Registration

The customer registers to be able to use the Services by filling in the registration form on the Website. It is required that a legal person with authority to bind the company to the Terms and Conditions is specified as the contact person.

Registering as a Customer on the Website is free. After the Customer has filled in his information on the Website, the Customer receives a user account. An activation code is sent to the Customer. If the Customer needs help with registration, the Customer is referred to Kvdpros customer center. The Customer must enter correct company details, personal details and contact details and keep the information up to date. The Customer is responsible for incorrectly filled in information. Information about Kvdpros processing of personal data can be found in Kvdpros Privacy and Security Policy.

The website is not available to, and may not be used by, persons under the age of 16 or who for some other reason have limited legal capacity or by Kvdpro temporarily or definitively suspended Customers.

Kvdpro allows only companies and private individuals registered in the EU and EEA to create user accounts and shop at kvdpro.com.

The Customer is responsible for all actions taken while logged in with the Customer's name and password. The Customer is only entitled to use the Service by using their own user account. The Customer must ensure in the best way that the password is kept secret and that it does not come to the knowledge of outsiders. The Customer may also not allow, directly or indirectly, third parties to use their user account. The password must be changed immediately if there is reason to suspect that the information has been disclosed or otherwise misused. The Customer must also immediately report to Kvdpro if it can be suspected that an unauthorized person knows the Customer's password.

The Customer is responsible for all information provided to Kvdpro both during membership registration and during the entire purchase journey being correct, truthful, and valid.

As a member of kvdpro.com, the Customer accepts these Terms and Conditions in full and thereby swears to, in all situations, act in a consistent manner with what is accepted by adopting these Terms and Conditions.

Kvdpro is not responsible for losses caused as a result of unauthorized use of a customer’s login details or user account unless Kvdpro has been guilty of negligence.

3.1 Member Account

If Kvdpro suspects that an account is linked to a person or a company that conducts activities that are in violation of Kvdpros Terms and Conditions, national or international laws and regulations as well as sanctions lists, the account can be blocked. This can take place in the case of a single sale or for an indefinite period of time. Kvdpro does not need to inform the Customer why his account has been blocked from purchases on kvdpro.com.

Kvdpro may share your personal and company data with the following recipients: (a) other companies within the Kvdpro group, and (b) IT suppliers, collaboration partners, marketing and research companies, finance companies and transport companies in order to offer discounts, adapt content, request transport quotes etc.

4. Sales, bidding, and bidding fee

The objects are put up for sale via auction or fixed price sale online on the Website. In some cases, objects can be sold without the object being published on kvdpro.com. Descriptions of Objects that are put up for sale always take place according to Kvdpros templates and systems and in accordance with the Terms and Conditions in applicable parts. All Objects are sold in their existing condition and more information about this can be found in Kvdpros Purchase Terms and Conditions for Business Customers.

Kvdpros online sales are held continuously during the week on the Website. Kvdpro may from time to time offer various Services as well as the opportunity to bid and participate in a bidding process as well as any other services. The Services may be free of charge or may be associated with fees of various kinds. If a Service is associated with a fee, this is stated on the Website. The Terms and Conditions below apply to bidding via the Website.

In order to bid or buy Objects at a fixed price, the Customer must first register as a member according to these Terms. A Customer who wishes to participate in a bidding or buy at a fixed price on the Website may participate if he meets the Terms and Conditions. To participate in an auction or fixed price sale of Objects advertised on kvdpro.com, it is required that the registered member is logged in to Kvdpro.com and participates in the online sale. Kvdpro does not accept bids over the phone, email, or other means of communication. In order for a transaction to be approved, it is required that the legal person who registered a user account, the Customer, is the same person who ultimately carries out the transaction and collection of the object. Change of Customer from a registered member to another person or business is not permitted.

It is not permitted to participate in bidding on the Website of your own submitted objects or to manipulate bidding in any way, for example through agents. The person who places a bid on behalf of another assumes full responsibility for completing the purchase as the person who places a bid and thus participates in a bidding on their own behalf. Kvdpro reserves the right to remove objects from the Website during ongoing bidding.

A Customer may log in and place a bid for an auction on the Website at any time until the auction closes. It costs nothing for a Customer to place a bid. A Customer who wishes to place a bid must follow the instructions on the Website. If a Customer regrets a placed bid and wishes to remove it, it is required that the Customer notify Kvdpro of this no later than six (6) hours before the countdown for the auction starts. It is not possible to remove bids placed less than six (6) hours before the auction countdown starts.

For each Object that is sold at auction, there is a specified time when the countdown for the auction starts. If a new bid is placed within a time interval predetermined by Kvdpro before the end of the auction, the auction continues, and the auction time is extended further by this time interval. When the bidding has stopped for longer than the time interval predetermined by Kvdpro, the auction is closed. The end of the auction is thus variable and cannot be predicted. Information about ongoing auctions together with preliminary closing dates can be found on the Website.

A Customer who wins the bidding in accordance with these Terms and Conditions must pay a fee ("Bidding Fee"), in accordance with the principle and the amounts stated on the Website. A business Customer is obliged to pay the Bidding Fee even if a purchase of a won Auction or fixed-price sale is not completed for any reason. Applicable Bidding Fees for each Object are listed under the Object view/page on the Website. Payment of the Bidding Fee is carried out in accordance with point 6 End of sale below.

Some objects, the Client can choose that the object should only be sold to VAT-registered companies. The Client also has the right to choose whether the object is to be sold to Swedish buyers and/or buyers in selected countries within the EU + EEA.

Kvdpro reserves the right to deny the Customer permission to purchase an Object at any time and for any reason, without giving any justification for denying the purchase.

4.1 Fixed price sales and expression of interest

Kvdpro also offers fixed-price sales of objects. Fixed-price sales can take place either together with or without an auction.

Fixed price without auction

In case of fixed price without auction, the Customer is offered to buy the Object at a fixed price. Fixed price works as a “Request to purchase” the object, where the Customer with the first submitted Request to purchase is offered a possibility to buy the object, “Buy option”. When the Customer has sent the Request to purchase, the Customer will receive information about his place in the queue. If the Customer does not have the first place in the queue, he will be informed which number in the queue he holds.

Kvdpro will contact the Customer with the first Request to purchase to complete the purchase. If the Customer does not respond or call back within 24 hours, the Buy option will be canceled and instead offered to the next Customer in the queue. The Customer's request will then be removed. If the Customer wishes to reserve the object again, he must submit a new Request to purchase the object. Kvdpro will only contact the Customer with the first submitted Request to purchase (queue slot 1).

Fixed price with auction

When selling objects at a fixed price together with an auction, the customer is offered to buy the Object at a fixed price during the auction period. Auctions that offer fixed-price sales can be ended earlier than the set time by the Customer waiving the bidding phase and using the Request to purchase the object at a fixed price. On objects where this option is available, a fixed price will be indicated. For fixed price sales on auctioned objects, the fixed-price sale works as Request to purchase the object where the customer with the first submitted purchase reservation (queue slot 1) is offered a Buy option. The Fixed Price sale will be available Monday 07.00 to Friday 12.00 CET during the time the auction is in progress. The possibility of fixed-price sales is removed during the weekend. The fixed-price sale is also removed 24 hours before the auction countdown and in cases where bids come close to the auction's set reservation price. After that, the auction continues without this option.

When the Customer has sent the Request to purchase, the Customer will receive information about his place in the queue. If the Customer does not have the first place in the queue, he will be informed which number in the queue he holds.

The customer with the first submitted Request to purchase must contact Kvdpro by phone within two (2) hours to complete the purchase. If the Customer with the Buy option does not contact Kvdpro within two (2) hours, the Buy option will be offered to the next Customer in the queue. If Kvdpro is not open when the Request to purchase is submitted, the Customer needs to contact Kvdpro the next working day, as soon as Kvdpro opens the business for the day, to complete the purchase. If the Customer with the first submitted Request to purchase does not complete the purchase, Kvdpro will contact the next Customer in the queue to offer a Buy option. The customer's reservation will then be removed. If the Customer wishes to reserve the object again, he must submit a new Request to purchase.

Customers who have not submitted the first Request to purchase should not contact Kvdpro. Kvdpro reserves the right to deny the Customer permission to purchase an Object at any time and for any reason, without giving any justification for denying the purchase.

Registration of interest

When selling objects at a fixed price without an auction, the customer is offered the opportunity to send in a “Registration of interest”. Registration of interest means that the customer can send in a bid for the object, even if this falls below the set fixed price.

The Registration of interest is a price request and does not mean that the Customer may purchase the object for the requested price. Kvdpro will, if the Registration of interest includes an offer relevant to the Client, coordinate this with the Client. If the Client is interested in proceeding with the sale at the Customer's proposed bid, Kvdpro will contact the Customer. If Kvdpro does not respond to the sent Registration of interest, the Client is not interested in proceeding with a deal to the offer proposed by the Customer.

Note that a Request to purchase of the object will have priority over a Registration of interest. If you want to be sure to buy the Object, you must send in a Request to purchase the object. The first Request to purchase that comes in is offered a Buy option on the object.

Ordinary Terms and Conditions apply to all fixed price sales and all expenses (excluding Bidding fee) are included in the fixed price.

5. Reservation price

For Objects there is often a minimum price for which the Client is willing to sell the Object (the "Reservation Price").

6. End of sale

The highest bid wins in the auction process. A winning bid does not mean that Kvdpro has accepted the bid or that the Customer has a right to buy the Object. If an auction or fixed-price sale ends with two equally high bids, the bid that reaches Kvdpro first wins. In the event of disputes regarding the bidding, Kvdpro alone and finally determines which bid or fixed price request has priority. The Agent has implemented a review process whereby each potential buyer is assessed, and if deemed acceptable at the Agent's and Client's sole discretion, sales of Objects may be approved.

Kvdpro informs the Customer with the highest bid or first submitted fixed price Request to purchase about a possible Buy option. This information as well as any offered Buy option means an opportunity to buy the object. This does not mean that an agreement has been entered into regarding the purchase.

If the Reservation Price has not been reached, the Client reserves the right to either put the Object up for sale again without prior contact with the Customer with the highest bid, accept the highest bid or submitted bid from another interested party, negotiate a price that is accepted by both the bidder and the Client, or terminate the sale. If the Reservation Price has been reached (which appears as "Yes" under the Object view on the website), the Customer has a possibility (option) to purchase the Object at the agreed price. The Agent reserves the right to refuse or revoke the sale (auction and fixed price sale), and thereby at any time, without any reason or justification, deny the Customer the granting of the purchase. The Customer approves and consents to this handling, which does not entail any rights for the Customer. The Agent is not obliged to enter into any agreement with any Customer for the sale of Objects. All individual transactions will be evaluated independently.

A Customer who wins the bidding or has purchased through fixed price sales must pay a Bidding Fee for the purchased Object in accordance with the principle and the amount stated on the Website. A Customer is obliged to pay the Bidding Fee even if the purchase of the requested/won Object is not completed for any reason. In cases where Customers do not complete payment within two (2) working days from the end of the auction or submitted fixed price request, the Agent reserves the right to end the purchase and offer a purchase option to the next bidder. This applies to both auction and fixed-price sales.

After sales via auction or fixed-price sale without auction, Kvdpro contacts the winning bidder to confirm the purchase. After sale via fixed price during auction, the Customer must contact Kvdpro within two (2) hours to complete the purchase. Kvdpro informs the highest bidder about the payment and delivery process as well as additional services. Kvdpros applicable Purchase Terms and Conditions for Business Customers are attached to these Terms and Conditions and will be provided to the Customer for review when signing up as a member at kvdpro.com.

Bidders with the highest bid are required to answer the phone and read their e-mail after the end of the auction or the fixed-price sale. In cases where Kvdpro cannot get in touch with the bidder with the highest bid for an object sold via auction or at a fixed price without an auction no later than the following working day after the end of the auction or fixed price sale despite repeated attempts, Kvdpro has the right to charge the Bidding Fee and offer other bidders to buy the Object, unless otherwise stated.

In cases where Kvdpro does not receive feedback from the bidder with the first submitted fixed-price Request to purchase on the object sold at a fixed price during auction, no later than two (2) hours after the submitted fixed-price Request to purchase, Kvdpro has the right to charge the Bidding Fee and offer other bidders to buy the Object, unless otherwise stated.

Subject to the Customer being granted approval to purchase, each potential transaction, including the conclusion of individual agreements to evidence any transaction relating to the sale of Objects executed by the Agent, shall be completed, and executed in accordance with the process described in Section 6.1 below, provided unless the Agent and the Customer agree on anything else.

6.1 Process at Auction or fixed price sales

For each transaction regarding the sale of Objects, the Customer must accept these Terms and Conditions and conduct the transaction through the following process;

  1. In the case of a won auction or "fixed-price sale without auction", the Agent contacts the Customer regarding the Buy option, and in the case of a won "fixed-price sale during an ongoing auction", the Customer contacts the Agent regarding the Buy option, which includes, among other things,
    1. a specification of the Object,
    2. price and fees,
    3. reference to Auction and membership Terms and Conditions for Business Customers and
    4. the time period during which the offer is valid.
  2. The customer confirms his acceptance of the Agent's offer. If the Customer does not comply with the current Auction and membership Terms and Conditions for Business Customers as well as the Purchase Terms and Conditions for Business Customers or if other ambiguities or changes arise during the process, this is interpreted as a rejection of the Agent's offer of a Buy option. With this, the opportunity to complete the purchase will be canceled immediately.
  3. The Customer confirms the offer, and the Agent informs about payment and delivery. The Customer submits the information Kvdpro requests in order to handle sales further.
  4. The Agent sends payment documents. The Customer pays within the time set by Kvdpro.
  5. The Customer pays the entire amount through one of Kvdpros approved payment methods, see section 5.2 in the Purchase Terms and Conditions for Business Customers. Payment must be made from a bank account registered in the same country as the purchasing company is registered. For companies, a valid VAT registration number* is required.
  6. After receiving payment, the Agent books and plans the delivery of the object to the Customer and communicates about the date and delivery conditions.
  7. Prior to collection of purchased Object
    1. Sales to Swedish Customers who pick up the Object themselves.
      1. The customer confirms the planned delivery.
    2. Sales to Swedish Customers who pick up through Agent/Transporter/Courier or other party.
      1. The Customer or hired agent/transporter/courier confirms planned delivery.
      2. Prior to delivery, the Customer must send in a signed Power of Attorney stating that the carrier or agent has the right to pick up the Object on behalf of the Customer.
      3. Power of Attorney form is sent to the Customer on request.
    3. Sales to export Customers who pick up the Object themselves.
      1. The Customer confirms the planned delivery.
      2. In cases where the Customer bought on export and collects the object himself, a registration certificate is required in the recipient country for registered objects.
      3. In the case of sales of unregistered objects and Customers without a forwarder's guarantee outside Sweden's borders, within the EU, a Transaction certificate is required for correct bank details for the refund of the deposit.
      4. For sales outside the EU (exclusive EEA), customs documents are required.
      5. When selling registered Objects, Swedish registration plates must be removed and discarded by the Client or Agent before delivery can take place.
    4. Sales to export Customers who collect through a carrier or agent.
      1. The customer or hired agent/transporter/courier confirms planned delivery.
      2. In cases where the customer bought an Object to export and collects with a carrier or agent, a forwarder's guarantee and a CMR are also requested. A CMR needs to be stamped by the Agent or his agent, alternatively the Client, the agent/carrier/courier, and the Customer.
      3. In the case of sales of unregistered Objects and Customers without a forwarder's guarantee outside Sweden's borders, within the EU, a Transaction certificate is required for correct bank details for the refund of the deposit.
      4. For sales outside the EU (exclusive EEA), customs documents are required.
      5. When selling registered objects, Swedish registration plates must be removed and discarded by the Client or the Agent before delivery can take place.
  8. Delivery acknowledgement upon delivery
    1. For all deliveries, the Customer always needs to check the object himself or through an agent.
    2. Upon delivery, the Customer must always sign a Delivery acknowledgement. The Delivery acknowledgement ensures that the right person collects the Object. If a transporter or agent collects the Object, he needs to inform the Customer in dialogue that the condition of the Object corresponds to the description. The Customer needs to sign the Delivery acknowledgement in order for the carrier or agent to be able to pick up the object.
    3. If the Delivery acknowledgement is not signed, this is seen as a breach of contract, see 7. Misuse of the Services.
    4. The object is made available to the Customer in accordance with the agreed Incoterm.
    5. After the signed Delivery acknowledgement, the purchase is considered completed and the Customer will receive a Receipt for the purchase.
  9. Handling after delivery for export sales
    1. In case of export, the Customer submits copies of the final shipping / transport documents, registration certificate in the recipient country (including but not limited to CMR and waybill) to the Agent as well as final declarations, certificates and permits, related to transport of the Object from the current location to its final destination according to the agreed Incoterm in cases where the Object is to be exported.

*VAT registration number, number combination including country code.

A binding purchase is deemed to have been entered into upon completion of step 8 above in accordance with the applicable Auction and membership Terms and Conditions for Business Customers. The Customer acknowledges and agrees that the Agent may revoke the offer to purchase an Object at its sole discretion, at any time prior to completion of Step 8, without liability to compensate the Customer in any way.

The customer acknowledges and agrees that the Agent may offer the same Object to several potential buyers and that the Object may be offered to another buyer until step 8 is completed.

7. Misuse of the Services

If Kvdpro has reason to suspect that the Customer is abusing his user account or his login details or otherwise violates the provisions of these Terms and Conditions, Kvdpro has the right at its own discretion and without notifying the Customer in advance;

  1. terminate Customer's user account;
  2. restrict the Customer's right to use the Website by preventing login and/or
  3. making access to the Website impossible.

Kvdpro also reserves the right to limit or prohibit access to and use of the Services, stop bids, delay or remove content on the Website and take technical and legal measures to prevent the Customer from using the Services and terminate the sale if Kvdpro suspects that the Customer abuses the Services, for example by bidding on Objects that the Customer does not intend to buy, manipulates the bidding, independently seeks out the client in an attempt to close the deal or influence the price and/or delays in responding, paying or collecting objects.

Kvdpro also has the right, for whatever reason, to send out a request to the customer to change login details.

If the Customer has misleadingly stated that it is acting as a private person when it is de facto representing a business customer, Kvdpro has the right to cancel the purchase. The bidding customer must always be the same legal entity as the purchasing customer. See point 3 above.

If the Customer during the purchase process provides conflicting information to what was previously provided, this is seen as a breach of contract. The purchase period applies from and including the conclusion of these Terms and Conditions up to and including the end of the sale, including the receipt of any documents after the purchase to prove, for example, proof of import in another country.

The Customer agrees with these Terms and Conditions that all information provided throughout the purchase process is correct.

7.1 Breach of contract

In cases where the Customer does not fulfill what is included in these Terms and Conditions, Kvdpro sees it as a breach of contract.

If there appears to be a breach of contract, Kvdpro has the right to cancel the purchase even afterwards, and the Customer is then himself responsible for returning the Object to Kvdpro, including the costs this may entail.

8. Printing and typographical errors and any technical problems

Kvdpro reserves itself against possible printing and typing errors on the Website, in e-mail and/or text messages, documents and other communications. Kvdpro also cannot guarantee that all images accurately reflect the real appearance of the Objects. Pre-published Objects on the website may, in cases where the Object has not yet been documented and pictures taken, show a blurred template image. The Object's correct pictures and complete information will be added when documentation and valuation are completed, and the object is listed for sale.

Kvdpro has the right to cancel a sale, disregard bids from certain bidders and decide whether the bidding should be redone due to uncertainties about the last bid, technical problems, typos or other reasons. In the event of technical problems and mishaps on the Website, which mean that fair bidding cannot be carried out, Kvdpro reserves the right to unilaterally decide that the auction should be canceled and whether it should be resumed at a later date. Current bidders are notified where applicable.

Kvdpro cannot guarantee that the Website will be error-free or uninterrupted, that errors will be corrected or that the Website or the servers that make the Website available are free of harmful components. Kvdpro is not responsible for damage or loss or consequential damages that may be caused to the Customer or The Client, due to technical errors, communication problems or similar circumstances.

The website may suffer operational disruptions as described above. Kvdpro reserves the right to postpone the date and time for the end of the auction following unexpected operational disruptions, including but not limited to errors in the internet connection to the server, data breaches or service interruptions at the supplier. Kvdpro is therefore not responsible for possible overloading of the Website and its consequences. Kvdpro cannot therefore be held responsible if a bid is not registered, contact is not established after bidding, the wrong bidder is contacted, other communication is sent to the wrong Customer or if the Object is sold to someone other than the highest bidder. Furthermore, Kvdpro cannot be held responsible for errors or damages that occur as a result of incorrect or unauthorized use of the user account or password.

Kvdpro is also not responsible for damage or loss or consequential damages that may be incurred by the Customer or the Client due to the fact that the reservation price and/or fixed price and/or VAT noted in Kvdpro 's internal system is incorrect or has not been approved by the Client, leading to the auction having to be redone.

However, the above does not apply if there is gross negligence or intent. This disclaimer does not limit Kvdpros liability according to mandatory legislation.

9. Special limitation of liability

Kvdpro is not responsible for direct or indirect damage that may occur to a Customer. However, this limitation does not apply if there is gross negligence or intent. Kvdpros liability is further limited under all circumstances to an amount corresponding to what the Customer has paid or would have paid for the Services that Kvdpro provided to the Customer.

10. Notifications

Messages from Kvdpro to the Customer are sent to the email address or phone number that is registered on the Website. Messages from the Customer to Kvdpro must be sent in the manner specified on the Website. Notices on the Website are deemed to have been provided to the Customer as soon as the notices are made available.

Messages sent by e-mail and/or SMS are deemed to have been given to the other party immediately after sending. Messages sent by regular mail are deemed to have reached the other party three (3) days after sending.

11. Agreement period

These Terms and Conditions enter into force when the Customer has registered on the Website and are valid until further notice. A Customer who has been suspended from the Website as a result of a breach of the Terms and Conditions does not have the right to re-register or use the Website or the Services via another Customer's login, without Kvdpros prior written consent. Kvdpro has the right, at its own discretion, to decide to cease providing the Website and the Services or part thereof.

The Customer has the right to cancel his membership with Kvdpro at any time. In the event of termination, the Terms and Conditions continue to apply to such actions, such as bidding, that the Customer completed prior to termination.

12. Intellectual Property Rights

The website and the Services, its content and all intellectual property rights that protect these are owned by Kvdpro. The website and its content are protected by copyright and database protection (catalogue protection). Unauthorized use or copying of all or parts of the Website and the Services may constitute unlawful intellectual property infringement and result in liability for damages.

Kvdpro, KVD and related logos, logotypes and wordmarks constitute Kvdpros trademarks. Use of the trademarks may only take place after Kvdpros written approval and after such approval only in accordance with Kvdpros instructions.

13. Transfer

Kvdpro is entitled to assign the agreement that is regulated by these Terms and Conditions between Kvdpro and the Customer, including, but not limited to, all or parts of related rights and/or obligations, to third parties. In the event of a transfer, Kvdpro will notify who has taken over the Terms and Conditions, the rights and/or obligations after the transfer by notice on the Website or via e-mail. If Kvdpro assigns the Terms and Conditions to a third party, this party has the right to provide the same or similar services on another website. A Customer may not transfer its rights and obligations under the Terms and Conditions to a third party.

14. Amendments to the Terms and Conditions

Kvdpro may change the Terms, the Services, and the prices for these, as well as the content of the Website from time to time. In the event of significant changes to these Terms and Conditions, the Customer will be informed. However, this ¬does not apply if the change is due to changes in the law, constitution, or authority decision, if the change must apply immediately.

Unless Kvdpro and the Customer have agreed otherwise, the change becomes effective with respect to all bidding and fixed-price purchases that begin seven (7) days after the Customer has been informed of such change. If the Customer does not want to accept the changes in the Terms and Conditions or the Services, including price changes, he has the right to terminate the agreement for access to the Website with immediate effect. The Customer will then no longer be able to log in and use the Services, and the membership will be terminated. Such termination must be made before the Customer uses the Website again. Kvdpro recommends that the Customer keep up-to-date on the Website regularly to be aware of any changes to the Terms and Conditions.

15. Additional services: financing, insurance, transport etc.

Kvdpro provides a number of additional services. More information is available on the Website. The suppliers are fully responsible for these additional services and the Customer signs an agreement with the respective applicable supplier separately. Kvdpro is only at your service with information about such services. Kvdpro cannot therefore be held responsible for the content of this information and the respective supplier's fulfillment of applicable legislation or their commitments.

16. Personal data

Within the framework of membership and participation in a sale, Kvdpro processes personal data about representatives of the Customer, which is described in more detail in Kvdpros current personal data policy, which can be found here. Kvdpro is the personal data controller for this processing, with the exception of any review against charge registers and sanction lists for which Kvdpros Client is the personal data controller. The Customer hereby undertakes to inform its representatives about our personal data policy and that both the Customer's representatives and the Customer's owner's representatives about the review against charge registers and sanction lists may occur in order for Kvdpros Client to assess and manage risks attributable to regulatory requirements. For further information about such possible review and what personal data processing it may entail, Kvdpro undertakes to provide contact details to Kvdpros Client who is responsible for personal data for the review, upon request.

17. Applicable Law and Dispute

Disputes concerning the interpretation or application of these Terms and Conditions and the Website in general shall be interpreted in accordance with Swedish law and primarily resolved through negotiations between the parties. In cases where the parties do not reach an agreement, the dispute shall be settled by a Swedish court.


These Terms and Conditions have been established by Kvdpro on 2022-12-01.



Purchase Terms and Conditions for Business Customers

1. Introduction and background

These Terms and Conditions for Business Customers ("Terms") are applicable when you as a company or other legal entity ("Customer"/"you") purchase one or more Objects brokered by Kvdpro.

Agreement is entered into between the Customer and Kvd Heavy Equipment AB / Kvdpro ("The Agent"), organization number 556531-9919 on behalf of a selling client ("The Client"). The objects that are available for sale by Kvdpro through bidding and fixed price sales ("the Objects") are sold in most cases by Kvdpro but on behalf of the Client. In some cases, by Kvdpro in but not on behalf of the Client.

When a Customer wins a bid, he has the opportunity, but no right or obligation, to purchase an Object. In cases where the Customer has a Buy option on an object but does not complete the purchase, the Customer is charged the object's Bidding fee. The Customer does not have the right to transfer the opportunity to purchase an Object or to instruct another customer to purchase the Object. For foreign customers, in addition to these Terms and Conditions, special additional terms apply, see section 15 below.

The Customer acknowledges and agrees that all Terms and Conditions stated in this document shall form an integral part of the Auction and membership Terms and Conditions for Business Customers and thus constitute binding obligations for the Customer in relation to each transaction. The Customer further undertakes to immediately inform the Client and the Agent if and when any circumstance should arise that would render any of the warranties listed in section 4 below invalid.

2. Object and Description

Kvdpros assignment from a Client usually includes valuing and making a description of an Object ("Description"). The objects are usually used, but in some cases new products are also conveyed.

All objects sold on Kvdpro.com base their object descriptions on information from the Client as well as what appears when Kvdpro or the Clients makes a visual documentation of the object. No technical inspection of the object has been carried out. Always refer to pictures and video for condition assessment. There may be other errors in the condition and function description than what is written on kvdpro.com.

Objects that are available for sale by Kvdpro are represented in the Description, where information regarding e.g. The object and its main characteristics are indicated.

Objects may be used until completed sale and delivery to the Customer. Meter (gauge) setting, hours of use and condition may therefore differ upon delivery from the object's description on Kvdpro.

Kvdpro does not guarantee that all information in the Descriptions of the Objects is correct. The Customer must himself check the condition of the object when carrying out the purchase on site and approve that the condition corresponds to what the Customer has the right to expect with regard to the description. Kvdpro is not responsible for damage or defects that appear in such Description. The Customer accepts that parts and complementary parts for an object may be missing, even though it is not stated in the Description. Such property can, for example, but not exclusively, be: spare wheel, puncture kit, jack, tools, workshop and repair materials, floor mats, wheel caps, etc. The absence of such parts shall not be considered to constitute a material error, even though it is not stated in the Description of the Object. The fact that parts are missing does not mean that the Customer has a valid reason to neither obtain a price reduction nor the right to cancel the purchase.

The price at which the Object is finally sold may be significantly higher or lower than an estimated auction price. Kvdpro cannot guarantee that the Customer cannot find a similar Object at a lower price. Estimated reservation price for the object is drawn up by Kvdpro in consultation with the Client. Information in a Description may have changed due to arising circumstances. If information on kvdpro.com and or a description has been provided in different languages, the Swedish version applies in the first instance.

At kvdpro.com, the Customer can choose to translate object and other information through an automatic translation function. Kvdpro does not guarantee that the translation will be reproduced correctly in the selected language.

3. Viewing and obligation to investigate

Scheduled viewing of the Object before the start of the auction or during fixed price sales is possible in some cases. In cases where the sold Object is located at the Client, he decides whether viewing is possible. Contact Kvdpro for information. See kvdpro.com for contact details. Test driving of machines and vehicles is not permitted. Read more about collection directly from the Clients location in section 6. Collection and transport below.

The information about the Objects in the Description has been designed to be easily accessible and clear.

The Objects are, unless otherwise stated either in the Description or when making the purchase on site, documented, and described by Kvdpro, Kvdpros associate partner or the Client himself. However, it is the Customer who must check that the Object corresponds to the Description upon collection.

The Objects are sold as is. Errors and defects may occur on the Objects. The Customer must therefore carefully examine and assess the Object's condition. Depiction of an Object in the Description is for identification purposes only and cannot be used to determine the Object's performance or condition. However, if essential information in the Description is directly misleading, this may constitute grounds for cancellation of the purchase.

It is of the utmost importance that the Customer himself always takes care of a complete check of the Object's condition and function when picking up the object. All errors or deficiencies that differ from the Object description must be reported to Kvdpro immediately, before the Object is transported from the site. The Customer, the Client and The Agent need to deal with any errors or dropouts before the object leaves the Client's or Kvdpros facilities. No price reductions on the purchase are approved. If the object's condition and function significantly differ from the object description, the Customer is offered to refrain from purchasing. If the Customer does not check the Object on site but transports it directly from the location through a transporter/courier/agent, he is responsible for the fact that the transporter/courier/agent checked the Object. This applies if the Customer arranges transport himself or through Kvdpro.

If you leave the pick-up location with the Object, we consider it an acceptance of the Object's condition. Remarks, appeals or complaints made after the Object has been transported from the point of sale are not accepted by Kvdpro.

Kvdpro is not responsible for if the Customer has neglected his duty to investigate as described above and is not responsible for things that the Customer noticed or should have noticed if the Customer fulfilled his duty to investigate.

4. Inspection and Specific Warranty

The Customer must, as part of and in addition to his inspection duty according to point 3 above, on site himself or through a representative, examine and approve the Object that the Customer has purchased. After such examination, a binding purchase agreement with Kvdpro can be concluded, for which these Terms and Conditions apply in full.

All errors or deficiencies that differ from the object description must be reported to Kvdpro immediately. This must be done before the Object is transported from the site. If the Customer does not check the Object on site but transports it directly from the location through a transporter/courier/agent, he is responsible for the transporter/courier/agent checking the vehicle. This applies if the Customer arranges transport himself or through Kvdpro.

Remarks or appeals that occur after the Object has been transported from the point of sale are not accepted by Kvdpro.

More about Kvdpros responsibility for the Objects can be found in points 9 and 11 below.

4.1 No guarantees or remarks

The Customer approves the previous use of the Object, and that the Customer has had the opportunity to inspect the Object. The Customer acknowledges and agrees that the Object is sold in its existing "as is" condition and that the Agent has made no warranties, either express or implied, as to design, conformity to specifications and description, operation, accessories, or conditions of material quality or workmanship in the Object or any part thereof. The Agent makes no warranty of merchantability or suitability for the Object or any part thereof for any particular purpose, or any other warranty or representation, expressed or implied, regarding the Object or any part thereof. We reserve the right for misspellings in descriptions.

The Customer agrees that the Agent cannot provide a Manufacturing Certificate (MSO) for used Objects and that the Agent and the Client cannot be held responsible for the absence of the manufacturer's identification number, engine number or other serial number / manufacturing number.

Kvdpro always acts as an Agent for the Client in every sale. Kvdpro does not provide any guarantees on mediated objects. In exceptional cases, guarantees can be provided by the Client or the manufacturer. In that case, this appears in the object description.

5. Fees and Payment

5.1 Charges

A Customer who wins the bidding in accordance with the Auction and membership Terms and Conditions for Business Customers must pay a fee to Kvdpro in connection with payment of the agreed price for the Object ("Bidding Fee"). The Bidding fee is intended to cover Kvdpros costs for handling the Object and may vary in size. Each Object's Bidding fee is listed under the Object view on the Website.

For fees linked to Export Customers, see section 15.

The Bidding fee must be paid if the Customer has examined the requested Object on site, but then chooses to refrain from completing the purchase without a valid reason. As a valid basis, it is meant that the Object was found to be affected by significant errors or defects that were not specified in the Description of the Object.

If the Customer has ordered transport of the Object through Kvdpro, from one of Kvdpros facilities to another, the Customer will also be charged the transport cost, unless otherwise stated herein.

Collected Object is thus counted as a signed purchase agreement between Kvdpro and the Customer.

5.2 Payment by the Customer

The agreed price and Bidding Fee must be paid in advance before the object is collected - as soon as possible but no later than two (2) working days from the end of the auction or the submitted fixed price request. Payment must be made to the escrow account referred to by Kvdpro. Kvdpro urges the Customer to think through in advance how the purchase of an Object shall be financed. Please note that possible restrictions on payment options may apply.

Payment must be made from the same country as the Customers registration.

A binding purchase is not considered to have been entered into until the Customer has signed a Delivery Acknowledgement upon delivery of the Object in accordance with the current Auction and membership Terms and Conditions for Business Customers. The Customer acknowledges and agrees that the Agent may revoke the offer at its sole discretion, at any time prior to the completion of the signing of the Delivery acknowledgement, without liability to compensate the Customer in any way. After the Delivery acknowledgement has been sent, the Purchase is considered completed and the Customer will receive a Receipt for the purchase.

Kvdpro reserves the right not to always offer all payment methods, or to change the payment method if the one chosen by the Customer for some reason does not work at the time of payment.

A. Bank transfer to Kvdpros bank accounts

A Customer can pay for Objects by direct payment or bank transfer to a bank account specified by Kvdpro. The Customer needs to pay for the Object within two (2) working days from the end of the auction or fixed-price sale. When paying via bank transfer to Kvdpros bank accounts, the Customer is always asked to enter the object number (only numbers) the payment refers to in the payment notification.

If the Customer and Kvdpro do not enter into a purchase agreement regarding the Object, the Customer is of course entitled to a refund of the amount relating to the Object (excluding Bidding fee) that the Customer deposited into the bank account specified by Kvdpro. Kvdpro only refunds to bank accounts from the same country from which the payment was made.

B. Financing via Kvdpro

Kvdpro offers the Customer various financing options for payment of an Object through selected financing partners. The possibility of financing is only offered to businesses, not to private individuals. For more information about our financing options, read primarily at kvdpro.com and for further questions contact Kvdpros customer center.

C. Non-accepted means of payment

Kvdpro does not accept the following means of payment:

  • Debit, credit and payment cards
  • Cash payment
  • Postal money order
  • Check
  • Company card
  • Foreign cards

If the Customer is outside Sweden, special conditions apply according to point 15 below.

D. Refund in case of non-purchase or crediting of deposit

Kvdpro only refunds to the country the Customer is active and registered in as well as to the country, bank and bank account from which the payment was issued. The Customer always needs to prove payment by presenting a payment receipt in order for Kvdpro to be able to refund.

5.3 Non-payment

If, after being offered a Buy option, the Customer has failed to make or delayed payment, or paid via non-accepted means of payment as above, Kvdpro has the right to take one or more of the measures below.

If the payment is not completed as above, Kvdpro has the right to cancel the sale and instead sell the Object to another customer at the asking price that Kvdpro deems appropriate. In the event of resale, Kvdpro has the right to appropriate the amounts received from the Customer as compensation for costs regarding storage, transport, necessary repairs, sales costs, insurance and other costs attributable to the Object. If the sale price is not sufficient to cover Kvdpros claims and the cost of resale, the Customer must pay the difference.

5.4 VAT

In accordance with Swedish VAT legislation, all sales of Objects are subject to VAT, unless proof that the Object has physically left Sweden is provided. Such proof may be provided by the Customer's customs broker or freight forwarder. If satisfactory evidence in this regard has not been provided to the Agent within thirty (30) days of the invoice date for the Object in question, the Agent is entitled to retroactively charge VAT in addition to the purchase price of the Object.

Entrepreneurs must themselves check whether the VAT on the Object in question can be deducted in their business. Kvdpro recommends that a business owner check the Tax Agency's rules with their accountant and in which cases VAT can be deducted when purchasing an Object. Kvdpro is not responsible for any assessment regarding VAT.

VAT is also added to the Bidding Fee. The Customer can find more information about VAT at the respective Object.

6. Collection and transport

Collection must take place no later than five (5) working days for Swedish customers and no later than ten (10) working days for customers registered outside Sweden, from the end of the auction or submitted fixed-price request. This is unless the Customer and Kvdpro have specifically agreed otherwise.

Kvdpro is not responsible for transportation unless otherwise stated, and shipping is not included in a purchase of the Object. Purchased Objects may not be collected before full payment has been received by Kvdpro in accordance with point 5.2 above.

If the Customer wishes to order transport through Kvdpro, this must be done within 24 hours after the end of the auction.

For Objects that are not collected within ten (10) working days (Swedish Customers) or fifteen (15) working days (international Customers) from the day of the end of the auction or the submitted fixed price request, Kvdpro has the right to either charge a storage rent per Object and day or alternatively cancel the purchase and reimburse the Customer, if nothing else has been agreed between Kvdpro and the Customer. This also applies if the Customer arranges his own transport. If transport is booked via Kvdpro, the Customer will not be charged any storage costs. If the Customer is prevented from collecting the Object on the scheduled date and time, the Customer must have a special agreement with Kvdpro.

For Objects where collection has been delayed and Kvdpro has canceled the purchase, Kvdpro has the right to receive damages in accordance with the applicable sales legislation. Kvdpro has the right to collect compensation for costs due to the purchase agreement and cancellation and for loss in general in accordance with the applicable sales legislation. If the sale price is not sufficient to cover Kvdpros claims and the cost of resale, the Customer must pay the difference.

When collecting the Object, the Customer is obliged to examine the Object to ensure that the Object is not faulty. Business customers must check the Object at pick-up because complaints from Business customers after the purchase are not taken into account, see point 4 above and 10 below. Business customers who pick up Objects through agents, courier or transport companies are responsible for ensuring that the agent, courier of transport company informs about the condition of the object. The Customer needs to sign the Delivery acknowledgement himself to approve the Object's condition. In order for the representative to be able to pick up the Object, a signed Power of Attorney and Delivery acknowledgement are required. The Customer cannot approve the Object afterwards.

7. Re-registration and insurance of vehicles

Vehicles that are registered in the Swedish car register are re-registered from the Client to Kvdpro in some cases. When re-registration from the Client to Kvdpro takes place, Kvdpro always removes the object from use in traffic. Irrespective of whether or not the object was intended for traffic during the sale. This is to ensure that the remaining tax will go back to the Client.

In cases where Kvdpro does not re-register registered objects, the Client must arrange re-registration for the Customer himself.

In cases where Kvdpro handles re-registration for the Customer, this takes place as soon as possible, normally immediately after the Object has been delivered to the Customer. If the Customer wishes to have the Object registered for traffic upon re-registration, he must obtain a valid insurance policy registered and active until the day the object is handed over from the Client and the conclusion of the purchase agreement. The Customer needs to inform Kvdpro in writing if the Object is to be set up for traffic, otherwise the Object will be set aside in the event of a change of ownership. Kvdpro is connected to the car register and in cases where Kvdpro handles re-registration, the vehicle is reported in traffic if this is not subject to a driving ban or other obstacle exists.

The re-registration usually takes place in the next few days after the sale. In some cases, however, the re-registration may take more than two (2) weeks, depending on whether the vehicle may have a so-called leasing restriction. However, this does not affect the Customer's ability to use the vehicle. Nor does it affect ownership.

For export purchases, read more under section 15.

8. Intended Use and Penalties

Customer warrants that it intends to use the Object solely for the purpose for which it was originally designed and manufactured and that Customer has no reason to believe that any customer of the Customer or end user intends to use the Object for any other purpose.

Customer is responsible for complying with all applicable economic sanctions laws, regulations, trade embargoes or similar restrictive measures (“Economic Sanctions Laws”) imposed, administered or enforced from time to time by any sanctioning authority listed below.

  1. the United States government or a US agency (including the Office of Foreign Assets Control of the United States Department of Treasury, or any successors thereto, “OFAC”) the United States Department of State, the United States Department of Commerce or the United States Department of the Treasury);
  2. the United Nations Security Council;
  3. the European Union (or any of its Member States);
  4. United Kingdom; or
  5. All Member States of the European Economic Area;

Including other government institution of any of the above.

The Customer warrants that it is not a restricted entity or person under any Economic Sanctions Act and that the Customer is not directly or indirectly majority owned, represented or controlled by an individual or legal entity restricted under any Economic Sanctions Act.

Customer acknowledges that the Object may be subject to import or export restrictions imposed by Economic Sanctions Laws, whether domestic or international, which may prohibit or restrict Customer from selling the Object to certain jurisdictions, entities or persons. Customer is solely responsible for fully complying with all such applicable laws and ensuring that any further use and transfer of the Object complies with applicable Financial Sanctions Laws.

The Customer will indemnify (hold free) the Agent and the Client against all claims, liabilities, demands, actions, proceedings and all losses and costs in connection with the infringement or alleged violation of Economic Laws that the Agent and the Client may suffer or suffer due to the actions of the Customer.

9. Liability for faults

Kvdpro represents the Client in terms of liability for defects in the Objects. The Customer cannot contact the Client directly.

All Objects are sold as-is, that is, in the condition in which the Object is at the time of purchase. Used Objects may have defects. It is something that the Customer must count on. For defects in the Object that consist in the Object not meeting the agreed characteristics or being in a worse condition than what the Customer could reasonably have assumed, taking into account the price of the Object and other circumstances, Kvdpro is responsible according to the rules below. Kvdpro urges the Customer to note that normal wear and tear does not constitute a fault in the legal sense. Since the Customer himself has determined the final price of an auction, no consideration can be given to whether the Object was sold priced too high. The same applies when the Customer accepts a set fixed price.

The Client and Kvdpro are not responsible for errors that arise after the purchase. The Client and Kvdpro are not responsible for:

  1. failure due to normal wear and tear of the Object;
  2. errors, deficits or damages appearing in the Description;
  3. errors that the Customer could have assumed due to price or age; or
  4. for errors that the Customer is aware of or should have been aware of, for example things that the Customer should have noticed by carefully reading the Description and studying the pictures attached to the Object or things that the Customer should have seen/discovered upon collection according to point 3 above.

Kvdpro is not responsible for any errors, even if the Object has more extensive or other errors than those specified. Object description is based on the Client's information and what appears during a visual documentation of the object. Kvdpro is not responsible for descriptions of the Object in the Description being exhaustive with regard to damages, deficiencies or defects. There may be other errors in the condition and function description than what is written on kvdpro.com. Objects sold as "repair Objects" are based on information provided by the Client and may have more errors, damages, flaws and defects than stated in the description.

The Client or Kvdpro is not responsible for defects in property sold for the Swedish Enforcement Agency, bankruptcy trustee or in other forced sales.

10. Complaints

Kvdpro represents the Client in the event of questions and complaints. The Customer cannot contact the Client directly. The Customer may not claim that the Object is faulty if the Customer does not inform Kvdpro of the fault (complaint) within the deadlines and procedures specified below.

The Customer has a duty to examine the Object in accordance with these Terms and Conditions. Faults, which were noticed or should have been noticed when the Object was examined by the Customer on these occasions, must be reported immediately.

If a fault is detected, the Customer must immediately report this to Kvdpro. Complaints must be made by telephone on 010-165 14 44 and in writing to the following address: reklamation@kvdpro.com. A complaint must contain information about which Object the complaint refers to, a description of how the fault manifests itself and all other relevant information and circumstances that may be of importance. To avoid misunderstandings, an incorrectly stated bid does not constitute grounds for complaint. Kvdpro reserves the right to deny a complaint if it turns out that the Object is not faulty.

The Customer must complain about the error before the object is transported from Kvdpros sales points. It is important that the Customer, Kvdpro and the Client have handled and found a solution for the complaint before the Customer can move the Object from Kvdpros point of sale. This applies regardless of whether the object is at one of Kvdpros facilities or at the Client's location. No price reductions on the purchase are approved. If the Object's condition and function significantly differ from the object description, the Customer is offered to refrain from purchasing. Complaints from business customers after collection are not taken into account, which is why it is important to carefully examine the Object before it leaves Kvdpros point of sale.

Kvdpro never reimburses the Customer for travel or other expenses that are involved in buying and collecting an Object sold through Kvdpro. This also applies if the customer chooses to refrain from purchasing the Object and not take it with them from the pick-up location.

Kvdpro does not accept complaints about repair Objects.

11. Limitation of Liability

Kvdpro has no responsibility for errors beyond what is described above. Kvdpros total liability for each Object is in all circumstances limited to the value of the specific Object. Kvdpro is not liable for direct or indirect damages or faults.

12. Force Majeure

If Kvdpros fulfillment of its obligations under the Terms and Conditions is significantly hindered or prevented due to circumstances beyond Kvdpros control, such as, for example, general labor conflict, war, fire, lightning strike, terrorist attack, changed authority regulation or authority intervention, this represents grounds for release from liability and other consequences, damages, and other penalties. If Kvdpros fulfillment of the Terms and Conditions is prevented for longer than three months due to grounds for exemption according to this point, the Customer may cancel the purchase.

13. Additional services: financing, insurance, transport etc.

Kvdpro mediates a number of additional services from other companies. More information is available on Kvdpros website www.Kvdpro.com as well as in the information about the respective Object on the website. The companies that sell the services are fully responsible for these additional services and the Customer signs an agreement with them separately.

14. Applicable Law and Dispute

Disputes concerning the interpretation or application of these Terms shall be regulated and interpreted in accordance with Swedish legislation and primarily resolved through negotiations between the parties. In cases where the parties do not reach an agreement, the dispute shall be settled by a Swedish court.

15. Terms and Conditions for sales to countries outside Sweden

When Objects are to be exported, the Terms and Conditions below apply in addition to those stipulated above. When exporting objects outside Sweden's borders, an administrative fee is added. The applicable fee is specified on the Customer's payment documents and as part of the Object description on kvdpro.com.

Kvdpro does not export any Objects outside the EU or EEA.

The Customer is responsible for submitting all shipping / transport documents (including, but not limited to, CMR and waybill) related to the transportation of the Object from the current location to its final destination according to the Incoterm agreed upon in the Auction and membership Terms and Conditions for Business Customers to Kvdpro. It is of the utmost importance that all documents to be received by Kvdpro are approved and valid. Kvdpro works based on Ex Works (EXW) Incoterm. The Customer is also responsible for all customized declarations, certificates and permits that are issued and completed before the goods are transported according to the agreed Incoterm. Notwithstanding the above, the Agent has the right to review and revise the shipping documents and the customized declarations and may postpone or cancel the delivery if the Agent has any reason (justified or not) to suspect deviations from the agreed transaction limits. After completion of transport and/or export, signed, stamped and complete documents are required from the Customer to the Agent to prove that the transported and/or exported Object has reached its final destination. Signed, stamped and complete documents will be requested and required by the Customer within but not limited to thirty (30) days.

The Agent and the Client are not responsible for - and the Customer agrees to indemnify the Agent and the Client from - acts or neglects in connection with transport arrangements made by the Customer or its forwarder.

  • Submitted proof of entry of imported object must correspond to the final destination of the Object previously informed by the Customer in order for the deposit to be refunded. If this does not happen, Kvdpro will not refund the Deposit and a breach of contract has occurred, see section 7. Misuse of the Services.
  • At the time of delivery, the Customer or his Agent/Courier must be able to identify themselves with an ID document such as a driver's license or passport to the issuing party. This is regardless of whether the Object is sold at the Client's location or from one of Kvdpros facilities.
  • If the Customer uses an Agent/Courier at the time of delivery, a power of attorney must be sent to and received by Kvdpro before the Object is picked up. In cases where the Customer uses an Agent/Courier, it is the Customer's responsibility to ensure that the Agent/Courier who collects the Object, inspects the Object's condition, and informs the Customer of the condition. It is the Customer who must sign the Delivery acknowledgement and approve the Object’s condition so that the Agent/Courier can pick up the Object. After the Delivery acknowledgement is signed, a receipt is sent, and a purchase agreement has been entered into.
  • For vehicles: Swedish registration plates are removed, which means that the vehicle must be transported from Kvdpros facilities or from the Client on another vehicle/trailer or provided with temporary registration plates. Temporary license plates need to be sorted by the Customer himself and applied for in the Customer's country of origin.
