We do our best to provide accurate details, measurements, photographs and/or descriptions for auction items. Bidders will be provided at least one (1) opportunity to inspect and preview auction items and all bidders are encouraged to do so BEFORE bidding on any auction items. Every bidder is responsible for conducting their own inspections and exercising due diligence in inspecting each auction item being offered for sale. Statements made sale day take precedence over all other printed materials or any statements made during any auction preview or day of the auction. We reserve the right to cancel, suspend, or modify any auction that we may conduct.
We reserve the right to verify any of bidder’s bids by requiring bidders to provide written confirmation that they intend to bid on a particular item in a particular amount.

A valid debit or credit card (“Card”) is required for bidding approval. All bidding is in US Dollars (USD). There is a $5 MINIMUM if you would like to pay with a Card. Any invoices paid with a Card that are less than $5 will be rounded up to meet the minimum requirement. Your Card on file WILL BE automatically charged following the auction if you are the successful bidder for any particular lot. A 4% Card Convenience Fee (“CCF”) will be added to your bid amount, along with any applicable buyer’s premium, if using a Card to pay for your item(s).

Refunds will not be issued for payment type changes. Please make sure the correct Card is on file that will be charged to.
For out-of-state buyers with an invoice total of $500 or greater, we may ask that funds be in a certified form with either a Certified Check, Money Order or Wire Transfer ($25 fee added to each Wire). We will email you if need to pay in this manner when we send your invoice.
Pick Up of Items:
Each auction will have a scheduled pickup/load out date and time. You must plan to have your item(s) picked up/loaded out on this date and time. IF YOU DO NOT COME TO THE LOAD OUT TIME LISTED IN THE AUCTION, YOUR CARD ON FILE WILL BE CHARGED FOR YOUR BID AMOUNT, PLUS BUYER’S PREMIUM, PLUS THE 4% CCF.
Items not picked up during the scheduled pick-up/load-out times will be charged a $10 convenience fee (per invoice) for delayed pickup. If you fail to come pick-up/load-out your items, and fail to make arrangements to do so, your items will be declared to be abandoned and we will either dispose, re-sell, donate, or return those items to the Seller at our discretion.
