By bidding at auction you agree to be bound by these Conditions of Sale. BEFORE THE SALE Potential buyers advised to personally inspect any lot in which they are interested in before the auction begins. Condition reports are available up to 24 hours before the auction begins. All lots are sold 'AS IS' and without recourse and neither Atlanta Auction Gallery LLC (hereinafter AAG) nor its consignor(s) makes any warranties or representations, express or implied with respect to such lots.

The absence of any reference to the condition of a lot does not imply that the lot is in perfect condition or completely free from wear and tear, imperfections or the effects of aging. No statement, whether written or oral, and whether made in the catalogue, or in supplements to the catalogue, an advertisement, a bill of sale, a salesroom posting or announcement, the remarks of an auctioneer, or otherwise, shall be deemed to create any warranty, representation or assumption of liability.

Registration A prospective buyer must complete and sign a registration form and agree to the terms and conditions of the sale before bidding. We may require a credit card on file before approval. Bidding When making a bid, a buyer or bidder is accepting personal liability to pay the total price including buyer?s premium, sales tax, and other applicable charges. Unless explicit consent is given prior to beginning of auction, that the bidder is acting as an agent for a third party, AAG will hold the bidder liable for payment. Absentee Bids We will accept written bids given to us prior to the beginning of the sale by the bidder or third party agent in person or via telephone. Absentee bids are a courtesy given and we do not accept liability for failing to execute a written bid or for errors and omissions in connection with the written bid. We will make two attempts to reach the bidder by telephone. We will use reasonable efforts to carry out online bids and do not accept liability for equipment failure, inability to access the internet or software malfunctions related to the execution of online bids. Reserves Some lots in the sale are subject to a reserve price which is the minimum price which the item must reach for it to be sold. Reserves are agreed upon with the consignors or the sole discretion of AAG. The auctioneer may open the bidding on any lot below the reserve by placing a bid on behalf of the seller. The auctioneer may continue to bid on behalf of the seller up to the amount of the reserve, either by placing consecutive bids or by placing bids in response to other bidders. Lots offered without a reserve will usually start at half of the low estimate, unless there are already competing bids. At the auctioneer?s discretion, the auctioneer may reduce the starting bid until a bid is recognized, and then continue up from that bid amount. Auctioneer?s Discretion The auctioneer has the right at his or her absolute and sole discretion to refuse any bid, to advance the bidding in such a manner as he or she may decide, to withdraw any lot, and in the case of error or dispute, and whether during or after the sale, to determine the successful bidder, to continue the bidding, to cancel the sale or to reoffer and resell the item in dispute.
