Auction Policies

Privacy Policy

We believe in the privacy of our customers.
The information provided to us (names, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, bids on items, etc.) is for the sole use of this company, and will not be disclosed or sold to any non affiliated individual, company or entity unless we are expressly told to do so.

 

Conditions of Sale

The property in the sale is offered by the Auctioneer as agent for the Consignor, according to the following terms and conditions:

All property is sold "as is" and ALL SALES ARE FINAL. Property is open to the public for thorough inspection, and is the bidder's responsibility to determine condition, etc.

Though all description and commentary are believed to be correct, neither Auctioneer nor Consignor makes any warranties or representations of any kind with respect to the property, and in no event shall be held responsible for having made or implied any warranty of description, genuiness, authorship, attribution, provenance, period, culture, source, origin, condition, etc.

A bid by any person shall be conclusive proof that the person has made him/her self acquainted with these conditions of sale and has agreed to be bound by them.

The buyer shall be the highest bidder. Should a tie or dispute arise between two bidders, the auctioneer may, at his discretion, reopen the bidding between the two high bidders until the property is sold.

To maintain the continuity of the sale, it shall be the duty of the auctioneer to advance the bidding at his own discretion, and may reject a nominal or fractional advance, should it, in his estimation prove injurious to the sale.

In the case of lots upon which there may be a reserve price, the auctioneer shall have the right to bid on behalf of the Consignor, or the Consignor may wish to bid personally, or by Agent. However, in all cases, full commissions are due and payable to the Auctioneer without distinction or preference shown to such Consignor or Agent should he Become the successful bidder.

Auctioneers note: The vast majority of items offered for sale are sold regardless of price, and without a minimum bid. On occasion in order to offer the widest selection of merchandise possible, which would otherwise be unavailable for sale, we may sell selected pieces subject to a fair reserve price established by the owner.

Prior to removal of purchases, payment must be made in cash or by other means as announced by the auctioneer before the sale. Unless exempted by law, the purchaser shall pay any and all applicable taxes.

Upon the fall of the auctioneers hammer, and/or when the Auctioneer says "sold," title on the property shall pass to the highest bidder, who thereupon assumes full risk and responsibility. All shall be removed from the premises by the purchaser at his own risk and expense within the time period announce by the auctioneer, and if not removed, may be sent by Auctioneer to a storage facility, for the account, risk and expense of the purchaser.

Auctioneer shall, as a courtesy, undertake to make execution bids (or absentee bids) for responsible parties in their absence, yet reserve the right to declineto do so and in no case shall be responsible for failure to do so. Please leave payment (unless otherwise instructed not to do so) in the amount of the bid with the accompanying name and address. The difference between the sale price and the bid, or the whole payment if the bid fails, will be returned at once. Removal of merchandise shall be in accordance with other conditions listed herein.

Auctioneer reserves the right to withdraw any item before or during the sale.

Neither Auctioneer or Consignor shall be liable for any personal injury on the premises where the sale shall be held.

Auctioneer may facilitate the employment of carriers and packers as a convience to purchasers, but assumes no responsibility for their actions.

If the foregoing conditions or any other applicable conditions herein are not complied with, in addition to other remedies available to the Auctioneer and the Consignor by law, including, without limitation, the right to hold the purchaser liable for the bid price. The Auctioneer, at his option, may either (a) cancel the sale, retaining as liquidated damages all payments made by the purchaser, or (b) resell the property publicly or privately, and in such event, the purchaser shall be liable for the payment of any deficiency plus all costs, including storage, the expense of both sales, Auctioneer commission at its regular sale and all other charges due hereunder, and incidental charges.

It is our policy to protect the identity of any and all bidders and Consignors at our sales, whether the bidder or Consignor is present or has left an execution bid with the Auctioneer.

A 10% buyer's premium will be added to all sales as of
January 1, 2007.

Thank you for visiting and/or patronage.
