Buyers Contract

A bid is a legal binding contract. Buyers are responsible for honoring their purchases, and payment is expected in full before leaving the premises with your items.

Merchandise Pick-up

Pick-up location will be posted on the winning bidder's invoice along with the prescribed pickup time. If you cannot make the pick-up time, please DO NOT BID!

No merchandise will be removed from a location or transferred to another location unless paid in full. If a buyer fails to contact the Auction Manager or show up to pick up their items, they will immediately lose bidding privileges. Bidding privileges will only be reinstated when the buyer pays all invoices in full, whether or not the merchandise is still available to the buyer. A $10.00 disposal fee may be added to the invoice total.


Some items are able to be shipped. Please refer to sale-specific shipping terms within each online auction.

Transfer of Merchandise

If a seller agrees to transfer an item for an alternative pick-up, it is the responsibility of the buyer to arrange pick-up within ten (10) business days. We will not call and remind you. After ten (10) business days, the items will be considered abandoned and forfeited and become the property of the seller.

Inspection of Merchandise

Please inspect your items closely before leaving the property, once you have left the property, they are yours. We try to describe the conditions to the best of our ability, but there is always a matter of interpretation. Please consider and understand that many of the items we sell are estate pieces and in used condition and will show general signs of wear. If you need additional information about an item or would like to see the piece, please contact the Auction Manager listed for that particular sale.

Untested Merchandise

We cannot test all items; therefore, items sold as "Untested" are sold AS-IS with no warranties expressed or implied.
