EQUIPMENT REMOVAL: Due to the nature of this facility, one rigging company will be contracted to oversee all removal aspects of this plant. The rigging company will provide a price guideline prior to auction estimating removal costs for each piece of equipment. In addition to paying for the equipment, buyers will also pay for removal costs, which will include the item being removed from the facility and loaded onto a truck/trailer. The rigging company will provide a forklift and removal assistance for all small items based on an hourly fee. Small items are those not attached to the real property. Buyers will have 7 days to remove all their small purchases; after this date, all remaining items are subject to forfeiture. Buyers of larger items will be required to contract for removal within 7 days of the auction. Removal deadlines will vary by lot. Companies may petition for a rigging exception; these requests will be evaluated on a case by case basis.
