A 20% Buyer’s Premium will be added to all items purchased at the auction via phone or absentee bid, 25% if purchased via Invaluable, Live Auctioneers, or Auction Zip. All items are also subject to any applicable state and local sales and use tax unless the purchaser presents a valid sales tax exemption certificate.
All items are sold “as is” – the auctioneer makes no warranties of any kind. The absence of a condition statement does not imply that the lot is in perfect condition or completely free from wear and tear, imperfections or the effects of aging. Interested bidders are strongly encouraged to request a condition report on any lots upon which they intend to bid, prior to placing a bid.
We reserve the right to withdraw any item before or at the sale and have no liability whatsoever.
Certain lots may be offered subject to a reserve (confidential minimum price below which the item will not sell).
We reserve the right to reject any bid. The highest bidder acknowledged by the auctioneer will be the purchaser. In the case of a disputed bid, the auctioneer will have sole discretion on determining the successful bidder.
Phone bids are handled by members of our firm who bid on your behalf. The number of phone bidders is limited to the number of telephone lines at our facilities. If you need to make arrangements to Phone Bid, please realize it is “first come, first serve.” Due to our limited phone lines, on certain items where we anticipate a lot of interest we may require that a phone bidder commit to opening the lot at an amount agreed upon in advance.
Arrangements to Phone Bid must be made in advance of the auction and will not be accepted the day of the auction. Be sure to withdraw any absentee/online bids on an item if you plan to Phone Bid on the item.
All Phone Bids are conducted as a convenience and performed to the best of our ability but are not guaranteed.
Absentee bids are submitted by email or phone. Absentee bids are handled by a member of our firm who bids on your behalf up to the amount you have specified. We do not open the bidding with your bid.
If two absentee bids are received in the same amount on the same item, the first one received will take precedence.
On occasion, depending on how the bidding falls, an item may sell to someone in the audience for the exact amount that you specified as your limit. If you are concerned about this happening and do not want to lose the item, we will accept your bid with a plus one bid option, or other instructions as indicated by you, the bidder.
Absentee bids must be received one half hour prior to the start of the sale. No absentee bids will be accepted on an item for less than $50.00.
If you are a successful bidder, payment is to be made immediately following the sale. Approved checks, Paypal, Mastercard©, VISA©, Discover©, and American Express© are acceptable forms of payment.
We reserve the right to hold merchandise purchased by check until the check has cleared the bank.
Payment in full for merchandise purchased is expected within 10 days of the auction date.
We offer free storage for items purchased at our facility for up to 30 days after the auction. After this grace period, storage fees of $10.00 a day per item will accrue, unless prior arrangements have been made.
For items small enough for UPS/USPS we recommend our local UPS Store:

We have relationships with a number of truckers/shippers and can probably put you in touch with the right people for whatever shipping solutions you require.
