By submitting your bid, you agree that:
You have read and agree with the Auctioneer Terms and Conditions below:
You agree to pay a buyer's premium of up to 16% and any applicable taxes and shipping.
PAYMENT: Burns Auction & Appraisal LLC requires that purchased items are paid for within 5 days of the auction. Purchases not paid for within 5 days will be cancelled and those items will be resold in a future auction. We accept Cash in person, checks and all major credit cards. A 3 percent fee will be charged on credit card payments.
Invoices will be emailed to the successful bidder within one day of the auction. Payment is expected upon receipt of the invoice. Items will not leave ship or leave our premises until payment is made and checks have cleared. A fee of $25 will be assessed on all returned checks.
Condition: All items sold "as-is, where is." All sales are final, and no returns are accepted. Assessing condition is the buyer's responsibility, and buyers are encouraged to call with questions or to preview items in person on auction day. There is no warranty, expressed or implied.
WITHDRAWN LOTS: Burns Auction & Appraisal LLC reserves the right to withdraw any property before the auction and shall have no liability whatsoever for withdrawal of the property.
SUCCESSFUL BIDDERS: The highest bidder acknowledged by the auctioneer is the buyer. The auctioneer is the sole determinant as to who is the successful bidder. Once the auctioneer's gavel falls, the successful bidder immediately assumes full risk and responsibility for the purchased lot. If there is a tie bid between auction house floor and internet bidder, the floor wins.
STORAGE: We do not store items. Items to be picked up by purchasers must leave our premises within 10 days of the auction or they will be resold in a future auction.
16 percent on winning bids.
We will ship most items. Shipping costs are detailed in each item's description. We do combine shipping on most items. We aim to keep shipping reasonable, but we do charge for packaging materials and for labor, which of course is required to get your items safely packed and shipped. We pack well, and our shipments generally arrive safely. We ship with Stamps.com, which also provides our package insurance. If you require insurance on your package, it is your responsibility to request insurance by contacting Burns Auction immediately following the auction. Insurance is your protection against loss or damage. We do not provide refunds related to shipping issues, or any other issues for that matter.
Because combined shipping rates generally depend on what items you win, we can not giving shipping estimates for combining items before the auction is concluded. But do keep in mind that we aim to keep shipping reasonable.
Buyers may also pick up items at our gallery within 10 days of our auction.
If buyer purchases an item that we will not ship, it is buyer's responsibility to pay an outside party for shipping. If an outside party is not paid for shipping within 10 days, item ownership will revert to Burns Auction & Appraisal LLC. As a courtesy to our buyers, we will take most items that we can't pack to the UPS store for shipment.
TAXES: We will charge a 6.5 pecent sales tax for all purchases made by Ohio buyers unless we are provided with valid tax exempt information.
PICKUP: Buyers are welcomed to pick up their purchases at our gallery at 1302 Collins Rd. NW, Lancaster, Ohio 43130. Pickup can be arranged on the MONDAY following our Saturday auctions.
