4.2   Once an Item has been returned to Drive Wholesale in accordance with Clause 3.1 then as soon as reasonably practicable thereafter Drive will inspect the Item and undertake such searches as may be necessary to confirm that all of the conditions set out in Clause 3.3 have been met.

If the Buyer fails to collect the Item from Drive within the time period required under this Clause 4.2(b) then at any time thereafter Drive may dispose of the Item on behalf of the Buyer in any manner as Drive at its discretion sees fit and the Buyer irrevocably authorises Drive to do so (and should Drive elect to dispose of the Item by way of a sale on behalf of the Buyer then the Buyer shall be deemed to be the Seller of that Item for the purposes of the Standard Terms & Conditions). Where Drive receives any proceeds of sale as a result of disposing of the Item on behalf of the Buyer then it shall account for the same to the Buyer but shall be entitled to first off-set against those proceeds all costs and expenses incurred by Drive in storing and disposing of the Item on behalf of the Buyer. Where no proceeds of sale are received by Drive then the Buyer shall indemnify Drive on demand for all costs and expenses incurred by Drive in storing and disposing of that Item on behalf of the Buyer.

6       CONDUCT

 

6.1   It is a condition of Drive Wholesale making a Buy Back Guarantee available to any Buyer that the Buyer has not colluded or agreed with any other person to purchase a Buy Back Guarantee for an Item for the purpose of artificially altering the price and/or attempting to mislead, deceive or unfairly profit off Drive or any other bidder, buyer or Seller.

 

6.2   Drive shall monitor all returns and subsequent re-sales of any Items purchased with the benefit of a Buy Back Guarantee and should such monitoring identify any patterns which indicate behaviour of the type detailed in Clause 6.1 (for example, that a Buyer is routinely returning Items bought with the benefit of a Buy Back Guarantee which are then repurchased by the same third party) then Drive shall be entitled at its discretion to decline to accept from that Buyer any further returns of Items purchased with the benefit of a Buy Back Guarantee, even if all of the other conditions as detailed in Clause 3.3 have been met. Further, Drive reserve the right to decline a Buyer’s ability to purchase a Buy Back Guarantee where it considers abuse of process is being engaged in by the Buyer.
