Terms & Conditions
Important information ALL BIDDERS MUST READ THE FOLLOWING BEFORE REGISTERING. WE DO NOT ACCEPT PAYPAL OR INTERNATIONAL CREDIT CARDS. PAYMENT IS DUE ON DAY OF AUCTION! ALL BIDDERS must fill out our credit card authorization form at http://bit.ly/k5qls3 and fax it to 352-795-2039 in order to bid. We will run your card to pay for your purchases immediately after the auction ends, because we pay consignors right away. Please call 352-795-2061 with any questions. If you do not plan to pay when the auction ends (the night of the auction), please do not bid. OUR AUCTIONEERS MOVE VERY QUICKLY - up to 100 lots per hour - SO PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO EXECUTE YOUR BID. Occasionally Internet Bidding cannot keep up with the pace of the live auction because some providers are slower than others. A slow connection can result in the auctioneer calling "Sold" before we see your bid on our computer. For this reason, it is not in your best interest to wait until the last moment before bidding - those who wait may find themselves "too late." Besides bidding early during the auction, another way to ensure your bid is recognized, is to place a realistic *absentee bid (see explanation below) online. If you have not placed an absentee bid or you do not bid in time, the hammer may go down before we receive your bid. In this instance, the lot goes to the highest bidder whose bid was received PRIOR to the auctioneer calling "Sold". This can result in a disappointed internet bidder - so BID EARLY! And use the ABSENTEE feature. *Absentee bids are treated just like floor bids and they are integrated in between floor bidding and liveauctioneers.com bids. We do NOT start with your highest bid unless there are other absentee bids that exceed your maximum bid. Due to Liveauctioneers.com's policies and software, we can not even see your highest bid, so this feature is a really good way to protect an item you wish to purchase at a certain price (if no one else bids higher). TIE BIDS are always awarded to the floor. Please also read ALL "Terms and Conditions" below for other important information. By placing a bid, you are agreeing to all the Terms & Conditions, and you are in a legally binding contract to pay for any winning bis. Payment IMPORTANT: WE DO NOT ACCEPT PAYPAL! - PLEASE READ ON TO LEARN ABOUT OUR CREDIT CARD AUTHORIZATION FORM. The form is located at http://www.charliefudge.com/credit%20card%20authorization%20form.pdf .

By placing a bid on any item (lot) in a sale conducted by Professional Appraisers & Liquidators Auction Gallery, either in person, by phone, absentee bid or via the Internet, buyer/bidder signifies that he or she has examined the item as fully as he or she desires or deems necessary or prudent or that he or she has chosen, for whatever reason, not to examine it. Bidders who bid from off-site or via the Internet, acknowledge that they may not be able to inspect an item as well as if they had examined it in person prior to the auction. If a buyer/bidder requires absolute certainty in all areas of authenticity, and the results of his or her evaluation leave any uncertainty in his or her mind whatsoever, we strongly recommend that the prospective buyer/bidder have an expert examine the lot on his/her behalf or, if that is not possible, DO NOT BID ON THE ITEM(S) IN QUESTION. Catalog descriptions & auctioneer's statements are only an opinion. There are no conditional sales. All sales are absolutely final (However, we do guarantee Gold and Silver Content to be at least as we have described it, and we also guarantee whether or not a Diamond is Genuine) and the successful bidder, whether by internet bid, telephone bid, advanced written bid, or in-house bidding during an auction, shall be obligated to complete the transaction within 2 hours after the close of auction. We suggest that prospective bidders take advantage of the ample time provided during auction preview to determine the condition of offered lots. All auction sales are final on the fall of the Auctioneer's hammer to the highest bidder acknowledged by the auctioneer. (See also guarantee on gold, silver and diamonds) If there is a tie between an on-line bidder and a floor bidder, the tie goes to the floor. Once the auctioneer declares an item "sold" , the purchaser becomes responsible for the purchased property and their credit card on file will be charged. YOUR BID IS A CONTRACT, BIDDERS WHO HAVE NOT MADE PAYMENT IN FULL WITHIN 3 DAYS AFTER AUCTION WILL BE PROSECUTED TO THE FULLEST EXTENT! This may include Legal Fees, administration, handling, storage, attorney's fees, commissions, incidental damages and any other costs relating to bidders failure to complete their transaction.
