Note from GE:

GE would like to inform all bidders that extra precautions will be needed to be taken by your selected GE-Approved Rigging Company when removing equipment from a room with raised flooring, called the “PTH & Cores Room.” Each 24"x24" tile located in this room is rated at 1,500-lbs, but some may be compromised due to age and aftermarket customization. GE has advised all of the GE-Approved Rigging Companies that they shall be prepared to bring and use steel plating that can be used to set the path for removal from the room with the raised flooring.

In addition, a safety stand-down is required of all GE-Approved Rigging Companies on a daily basis before any work begins, and will be facilitated by a GE employee on site. Use of GE-owned overhead cranes, GE-owned fork trucks, and GE-owned pallet-jacks is not permitted due to union rules and company guidelines; therefore, all rigging companies and buyers shall be prepared to remove and load their purchased items using their own equipment.

Note: TBG is not the Shipper.

Buyers may either pick up their items at the designated auction site personally or can arrange for a third party logistics firm to manage the removal process for them.

1) Contract with an independent logistics firm or other representative who will dismantle, crate, pack, or ship your purchased items.
2) Coordinate the removal of those purchased items to meet the time deadlines indicated on this page.
3) Submit an "Agent Release Authorization" form which will allow The Branford Group to release items to a third party contractor for shipping, crating or packing purposes.
