Contract & Payment – Any bid that is made constitutes an irrevocable offer to buy the item(s) in question for the full bid amount, plus any stated Buyer’s premium and/or local or state taxes. A legally binding contract between the Bidder, on one hand, and the Auctioneer and the Seller on the other hand, is formed when a Bidder makes the highest bid and the bid is accepted the Auctioneer.

Non bona fide bid - If we determine that the highest bid was NOT a bona fide bid, the bid will NOT automatically go to the second highest Bidder. We reserve the right to determine whom the next successful Bidder will be. All Bidders must be at least 18 years of age in order to register and bid.

Bids properly offered, whether by floor Bidder or other means of bidding, may on occasion be missed or go unrecognized; in such cases, the Auctioneer may declare the recognized bid accepted as the winning bid, regardless of whether a competing bid may have been higher. We reserve the right to refuse to honor any bid or to limit the amount of any bid, in its sole discretion.

Reserves

Notice of the Seller’s liberty to place bids on his items in the Auction is hereby made!

Reserve Bid Before The Auction: Before the auction, the Seller of an item may place reserve bids in advance of the auction; on such items if the hammer price does not meet the “reserve bids”, the item will not be sold, however, the Seller may have to pay full commission on those items.

Shill Bidding At The Auction: We know it is easy for the Seller to bid or to have someone else bid for them on their own item. We also know that is hard to catch someone doing this practice. So we have initiated the following policy. Seller or their proxy, may bid on his/her Item on the Auction floor, or by any means during the live session, however we will require that if the Seller ends up with the item, we require the Seller to pay for the item, pay the full Buyer’s Premium (if any) and Seller’s Commissions on such item and a penalty premium of 10% of the final hammer price. Regardless of the disclosure of his identity, any bid by a Seller or his agent on an item consigned by him is deemed to be made in “Good Faith.” We strongly suggest, that if a Seller has concerns about an item’s price that they should establish a Reserve price rather than bid during the auction.

PLEASE READ: this auction permits bids to be placed by the seller or on the seller’s behalf, even if such bids are placed solely for the purpose of increasing the bid. In accordance with UCC 2-328, this auction is permitted to engage in this activity by providing this clear disclosure to you, the bidder.

This auction company has requested and been granted access to see all bids placed including any maximum pre-bids. This auction is permitted to engage in this activity by providing this clear disclosure to the bidder.

Family Members Bidding At The Auction: Immediate family members are allowed to bid on items at the Seller’s auction. If they are going to bid and avoid the paying the  additional 10% penalty premium of  Seller buy back they need to register as a family bidder prior to the auction.

Collision Selling Or Disruption: Agreements between Bidders and Sellers to effectuate a non-sale of an item at Auction, or to inhibit bidding on a consigned item, to enter into a private sale agreement for said item, or to utilize our auction to obtain sales for non-selling consigned items subsequent to the auction are strictly prohibited. If a subsequent sale of a previously consigned item occurs during the Holdover Period, We reserve the right to charge the applicable Bidder, a Buyer’s Premium and Seller a Seller’s Commission as determined for each auction venue and by the terms of the Seller’s agreement.

ABSENTEE BIDS

Bidding Options: We cannot be responsible for your errors in bidding, so carefully check that every bid is entered correctly. When identical absentee bids are submitted, preference is given to the first received. To ensure the greatest accuracy, your written bids should be entered on the standard printed bid sheet and be received at our place of business at least two business days before the Auction start.

Bid Forms: Absentee bidders must use the absentee bid form and clearly mark the lot number, title and maximum bid. Absentee bidding forms may be accessed online. If there is two (2) identical bids from absentee bidders, priority is given to the first bid received.
