Buyers must accept the following Terms & Conditions to participate in That Was Then live auctions. By signing up as a bidder, you acknowledge that you have read and understood our Terms & Conditions and agree to abide to them.
The highest bidder shall be the buyer and if any dispute arises between two or more bidders, the auction coordinator shall decide the buyer. We are not responsible for any technical issues or bids placed "by mistake". Buyers who renege or fail to pay will be barred from further auctions from That Was Then and very possibly to all auctions through Liveauctioneers. Potential bidders with open disputes will NOT be approved.
All of our auctions are NO Reserve auctions. A reserve means A HIDDEN minimum dollar amount that a consignor will accept. Since there are no reserves in this auction, the starting bid is the minimum acceptable amount at which the item will sell. In cases with multiple bidders for the same item, the last bidder will be the winner of that lot.
In nearly all cases, a condition report is stated. However, all items are sold "Where is, as is". If no condition is given, it is YOUR responsibility to ask for it. We repeatedly ask our bidders to email at least 48 hours before the auction commences with any and all questions as any bid taken is binding. Late inquiries may not get answered before the auction and we caution you not to bid unless you are prepared to accept the 'as is' condition. No returns accepted. The buyer is solely responsible for ascertaining the condition prior to placing a bid.
Florida sales tax of 6% will be collected and added to the invoice for items paid for and being shipped within the State of Florida.
We accept Bank-issued Cashier's Checks, United States Postal Money Orders, and Paypal (most credit cards can be used through Paypal). We cannot accept personal checks or wire transfers. Bank or Cashier's checks or USPS Money Orders should be made payable to That Was Then, Inc. The address will be provided on the invoice. Payments are due and payable upon receipt of invoice. Invoices will follow within 2 days of auction end.
For most items, the shipping cost is stated in the description. If our local PakMail store is used (for larger or heavier items) you will be responsible for paying them directly for the cost of shipping. In all cases, if you email us in a timely fashion with your city and zip code, we can obtain a quote from them before you bid.
The Buyer is to pay all shipping costs and related fees including insurance and signature confirmation which will be required for most shipments. All items are traceable and if the Buyer is not available to sign for it upon delivery, he/she must make arrangements to pick it up or have it redelivered within 2 days of notification. Any problems with shipment must be addressed within 2 days of receipt. Shipping costs quoted within the lot description is for the Continental USA only. Additional costs may apply to Hawaii and Alaska. Any shipments outside USA will be separately quoted. Buyer is encouraged to ask for these costs prior to bidding as all bids are binding. It is solely the buyer's responsibility to be aware of and to pay for shipping costs. For in-house shipments we usually use USPS. For third-party it would be UPS. We do not recommend Fedex. International buyers must take full responsibility for customs, taxes, VAT, etc. which are in addition to the shipping costs from our location.
That Was Then provides most packing and shipping services 'in-house', however, there are exceptions. For larger, heavier items we will use a local UPS Shop or for furniture, a shipper such as Craters & Freighters. Shipping fees for services provided by us are listed with each lot and are listed on the invoice. Quotes shown with listing include insurance for items under $100.00. For higher priced items, insurance will be calculated and added accordingly. Services provided by outside shippers will be paid for directly to that shipper. Arrangements for pickup from third party shippers will be done in a timely fashion (within one week). You can call PakMail (ask to speak to Rene) at 954-428-6866 for a UPS quote or email us.
We supply condition information with most listings. If you require more detail than supplied in the description or listed condition we strongly recommend you contact us at least 48 hours PRIOR to placing a bid as all sales are final and items are sold 'as is'.
As a general rule, we are NOT able to accept bids from most International Buyers. However, you may email us within 48 hours of the auction's commencement date with your shipping information and the lot or lots you wish to bid on so we can assess whether we can accept make the exception and accept your bids. If we accept your bids, please be aware that shipping costs can be very high. It is solely your responsibility to obtain a shipping quote from us in advance of bidding and to pay all fees, VAT or other taxes charged and to deal with any issues to do with customs. We cannot take responsibility for items disallowed by your country's customs department or for delays in delivery as a result of items being held or even confiscated by your country's customs department. All shipping is done via a method that allows full insurance and tracking and will require a signature. Usually that is through United States Express Mail or Global Mail services. Both can be very expensive even for a small and lightweight item. Again, all customs, VAT, or other fees applied by the destination country will be assumed by the Buyer with absolutely no liability to the Seller. We observe all legal customs rules and regulations with no exceptions. Full value will be declared on the customs forms accompanying the item.
Last but not least...Your registered address at Liveauctioneers should match your Paypal registered address. Take the time to make sure your Paypal account shipping address is correct and matches your registered address with Liveauctioneers.
