General Auction Terms and Conditions
Because of the varying nature of each auction inventory, bidding requirements may differ by auction. Please read any Terms and Conditions you are asked to approve.
Because of COVID-19 protocols, we currently have online registration only.
YOU MUST HAVE A CREDIT CARD ON FILE TO BID. TO DO SO, LOG IN AND GO TO YOUR ACCOUNT. WE STRONGLY SUGGEST YOU DO SO BEFORE BIDDING BEGINS.
All items are presented and sold ‘as is where is’ with no warranties expressed or implied. Items may be removed or added, without notice, at the sole discretions of the auctioneer.
Some items in most every sale will have a Reserve or Minimun Bid amount required to sell. This is different than Opening Bid - We consider these 'Subject to Owner Approval' and a call will be made to the estate or owner with the high bid. They may choose to accept, decline or counter offer. The auctioneer will facilitate this with full transparency.
The auctioneer will provide as much relevant information as has been confirmed. Your own investigation takes precedent over all other representations.
In the event of a dispute, the auctioneer holds sole discretion in its resolution. This includes, but is not limited to, the removal, re-offering or adjusting the terms of the item in dispute. The auctioneer’s decision is final.
Buyer’s Fee – Buyer’s Fee are specific to each auction - be sure and read the terms of the auction you are bidding . Buyer's Fees will be applied to the purchaser’s total before HST. Harmonized Sales Tax applies to all items offered and all services rendered.
The auctioneer will retain possession of all items until full payment has been received and cleared.
All items are to be removed from the venue following payment and are done so at the expense and discretion of the new owner. Please arrange with the venue or auction management if you require more time to remove your purchases. The auctioneer does not take responsibility for, or insure your items against, loss or damage. For online only auctions, please refer to the specific terms assigned to that sale but in general, payment is due upon completion and we will accommodate delivery or pickup as deemed safe and appropriate. Corona Virus safety protocols for example, take precedence over all other ideas.
If you require crating and shipping we are happy to help arrange though the expense is borne by the winning bidder, best to discuss prior to bidding. Shipping art under glass is not advised.
The auctioneer appreciated your interest and fair participation in this and all future auction sales.
