Why must I expedite payment and transportation arrangements for any awarded items?

Many of the sellers using GSEmarket.com must dispose of their equipment according to EPA requirements and may also have limited space in which to store their used equipment, making it necessary for buyers to expedite the payment and transportation arrangements for any awarded items. Bidders who fail to pay or who are late in paying or claiming their purchases do a disservice not only to the sellers of equipment, but also to their fellow buyers and to the GSEmarket.com service itself. The policies described above will not only allow sellers to expedite the turnover of their equipment, but will also prove valuable to those buyers who are ready and willing to purchase and transport desired equipment as soon as it becomes available to them.
