Thereafter, any loss by fire, theft, breakage, or any other cause is the sole responsibility of the purchaser. Merchandise must be packed and transported by the purchaser at his/her own risk and expense. If any employee or recommended agent of Millea Bros. shall pack or transport the merchandise, it is fully at the risk, responsibility, and expense of the purchaser and Millea Bros. shall not be liable for any loss or damage that may be caused by such employee or agent.

Though we do not ship to winning bidders ourselves, to help make the buying process as easy and hassle-free as possible, we are relaxing our pickup procedure for this sale. With restrictions on gallery access and transportation currently in place, we are happy to store all purchases onsite until normal transportation options resume (up to 90 days following the close of the sale). As of now, we believe that our local UPS store will be able to pick up and deliver small purchases, and that our shipping partner, DAKS Global, can pick up any item you may purchase. Feel free to make arrangements with them if you are eager to receive your purchase right away. If you plan to pick up your purchase in person, it is important to call us in advance to make an appointment. We have developed a pickup procedure that meets state mandated social distancing requirements. If you have a third party shipper you prefer to use, we can hold your item until they can safely make pickup arrangements. We appreciate you letting us know as soon as possible what shipping method you choose, so we can make the appropriate accommodations for a smooth transaction. We will keep in touch with successful bidders via email as the situation progresses. 11) If any applicable conditions contained herein are not complied with by the purchaser, Millea Bros. may, in addition to other remedies available by law; (a) hold the purchaser liable for the total purchase price; (b) retain any payment made by the purchaser, and/or (c) cancel the sale and resell the property without reserve and the original purchaser will be liable for any deficiency and added cost. NOTE REGARDING ANIMAL MATERIALS Certain property contained in this catalog may be constructed from, or may incorporate animal materials, and may require a license, permit or certificate for exportation or resale. It is the sole responsibility of the purchaser to obtain appropriate licenses. The sale of a lot will not be canceled if a purchaser cannot obtain the appropriate license, permit or certificate. CITES documents are not provided unless specified in the lot description.
