CONDITION REPORTS AND DESCRIPTIONS: Written and oral descriptions are only our opinion. They are not guarantees of authenticity, age, condition, or materials. While we make an honorable effort to correctly catalog all lots and to point out significant defects, we are not responsible or liable for the correctness or completeness of the catalog descriptions. It is always in the best interest of prospective bidders to examine items of interest at the preview. You are also welcome to call us at 610-722-9004 to answer your concerns. If you doubt catalog wording or meaning, we suggest you deduce the worst scenario or simply do not bid, because by placing a bid, you enter a legal contract and you guarantee your full payment before July 12, 2013.
SHIPPING AND DELIVERIES: CONVERSE can pack and ship many of the items in this sale, and where that is possible; prices are given with the description of the lot. If we cannot pack and ship, we can refer you to local shippers who can, but if you choose to have us pack and ship please note that WE DO NOT AND WILL NOT INSURE ITEMS SHIPPED FROM CONVERSE & CO. If you require insurance, you must use a 3rd party shipper. Recommended store are listed below. In some situations, we can arrange to deliver items. With all shipping, the transaction is between you and your chosen shipper. Regardless of how your items are shipped, we need notification of your plans (preferably in writing) when paying for your lots. If you wish to use a third party shipper, we will give them your contact information and they will contact you directly after payment is made. If you fail to make shipping arrangements, we will move your items to storage and a storage fee might be incurred, and if unpaid after 30 days we may resell your item to recover storage fees. After 60 days your items will be considered abandoned and will become the property of CONVERSE & CO. All items being picked up by you or your 3rd party shipper must be removed before July 19, 2013.
RECOMMENDED 3RD PARTY SHIPPERS: For third party shippers we recommend using Dennis McCarthy at the UPS Store in Wayne, (firstname.lastname@example.org), Duane Freed at The Packing Store in Lansdale (email@example.com) or Bill Koppe and Mail N More (firstname.lastname@example.org). Both will give you a quote if they have the necessary details about what you want shipped and to where. They reportedly respond best to email requests rather than phone calls. After your approval and payment, they will pick up your items, pack, and send them to you.
If you would like a shipping quote before the sale, email either of the recommended stores giving the lot number(s) and your address.
ITEM PICKUP: Items will be available for pickup on July 1 and 2, 2013 at 1128 Greenhill Rd., West Chester, PA, 19380 between 10:30 and 4:00. (610-722-9004). For other pickups, please give us at least 24 hours notice.
Again, remember that all sales in our auctions are final, and by bidding in our auctions you are legally bound to pay the full hammer price plus the buyer's premium within the time limits prescribed. In order to bid you agree that you will not do a chargeback on your credit card or stop payment on any checks. And also, we are not responsible for details or problems occurred through third party shippers.
