Invoice and Pickup
Q. I did not receive an invoice?
A. We generate invoices automatically at the conclusion of each auction. Be sure to add firstname.lastname@example.org to your email contacts list. Doing this protects against overzealous spam filters. Here's instructions for different email clients.
Q. What if I cannot make the pickup?
A. If you cannot make the pickup call the auction manager listed on the sale or the contact person on the invoice to discuss alternatives. Remember some sales are on site at a home and alternative pickup is not always possible. All invoices must be paid before the end of pickup time- Failure to do so may result in suspension of bidding privileges! With advance notice (email us) you can send someone to pickup on your behalf.
Q. Can I view the items before I make a bid?
A. Some auctions may offer previews while others may not. When a sale is conducted in a home we do not always have access to the items for preview. It's best to contact the auction us for more information
