We will make every attempt to leave positive feedback, but with a large sale we may have over a hundred successful eBay bidders and several hundred lots to leave feedback on. We may not be able to do it the day you pay for your lot, but we try to get to it within the allotted 60 days.
We will send invoices for the entire sale within three days after the end of the auction. If you purchased an item early in the auction, you will need to wait until the entire sale is completed before we compile invoices. We will email invoices to eBay buyers when possible, but please be aware that occasionally the emails do not arrive. Please let us know if you do not receive one after a few days. We can fax, mail or re-send the email invoice. It takes a few days to calculate shipping, and often bidders are successful on multiple lots. We combine these on the invoice and do our best to combine shipping charges, also, to save buyers a bit of shipping expense. (We may have to ship items separately because of size, shape or fragility; however).
If you leave an absentee bid on eBay, eBay will execute the bids in the order received. The earliest bid entered is executed first and will block any live bidders on the internet from trying to bid during the sale until the maximum bid amount is reached. The eBay priority does not apply to floor bidders. What does happen on occasion is that a lot will sell to a floor bidder for the amount left by an eBay bidder. For example, you leave a bid of 300 for an item; the bidding opens at 225 and your online bid is recognized by the auctioneer; the floor advances to 250; your online bid is recognized at 275; the floor bids 300. The floor bidder takes the lot since eBay cannot advance to 325 on your behalf, and you cannot bid 300 because you would be bidding against your 275 bid. (Technically, you did not bid 300, even though you left that as the maximum; only 275 was bid on your behalf). That is, just because you left a bid of, say, 300 two weeks before the sale does not mean you get the lot because your bid was earlier. You are bidding against other people in a live auction. This does not mean we discriminate against online bidders. Often online bidders get lots for less than their maximum bid. Also, eBay does not let us see the amount of an absentee bid. We know a bid has been left, but not how much, so we cannot be aware of your maximum.
Please register to bid well before the start of the sale. You must be approved before you can leave an absentee bid on eBay. We have a manual approval process, so it generally takes at least a day to finalize your registration. Once the sale begins, we may not be able to approve your registration.
Additional Information About A Lot
If you need additional information, please make your request as early as possible before the sale. Our auctions are held in several locations around Cincinnati, and items must be moved to the auction site several days before a sale. They may not be available to take additional measurements, etc. for several days. We receive dozens of requests for photos, and our sales often exceed five hundred lots. Please be patient.
Posted Sale Time
The sale times for live auctions only refer to the date of the sale: for example, if the sale end time is 8:00 p.m. PST, it does not mean you have until then to bid; the item will sell whenever the lot comes up on the auction floor. All times posted are Pacific Standard Time.
The cost of packing, handling, and shipping will be the responsibility of the buyer. Forsythes Auctions, LLC can recommend available shipping companies for your use, but does not handle most of the shipping. We work very closely with a professional shipper and recommend that the buyer contact him. Wrap-It Postal, 7721 Five Mile Rd. Cincinnati, Ohio 45230. Telephone 513-231-8990 and ask for Dave. We deliver to the shipper as fast as possible. We are trying to arrange shipping for 100s of items at the same time, and though we work as swiftly as possible please be patient with your shipment. The shipper will be very busy during the holidays so please allow ample time for shipment. We cannot estimate shipping on large items such as furniture. These must be shipped by freight or trucking companies and we cannot quote their rates for you. We will try to provide contact information for the companies, but you can also check with a local mover in your area. Successful bidders may also make their own arrangements for pick-up and delivery of property.
Live Internet Bidding
Live internet bidding is available during the auction as a service to our customers, however, Forsythes Auctions, LLC cannot be held responsible for failing to execute bids or for errors relating to the execution of bids. In the event of a tie bid between a floor bidder and internet bidders, the floor bid will be honored.

The rights and obligations of the parties shall be governed by the laws of the state of Ohio. All bidders submit to the personal jurisdiction of the state and federal courts of Ohio. TERMS OF SALE. Announcements made the day of auction take precedence over any previous communication. The auctioneer reserves the right to withdraw any lot at any time before its final sale and to reject any bid for any reason. The highest bidder for each lot acknowledged by the auctioneer shall be the “buyer”. If any dispute arises as to any bidding, or between two or more bidders, at the sole discretion of the auctioneer, the successful bidder will be determined or the disputed lot shall be put up again at the last undisputed bid and resold. The auctioneer may reject any bids if, in his judgment, such a bid shall be likely to affect the sale injuriously. BUYER’S PREMIUM. A premium of 15% will be applied to all property sold, to be paid by purchaser as part of the purchase price. Un-catalogued auctions and purchases made through live online auctions may have different buyer’s premium calculations. RESERVES. Most lots offered are without reserve. In the case of reserved items, the seller has authorized the auctioneer to bid on their behalf until the reserve price is reached. LIMITED WARRANTY. EVERY LOT IS SOLD “AS IS”, without any representations or warranties by Forsythes’ Auctions, LLC or the seller as to merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, condition or value of the property, or the correctness or completeness of the catalog or other description of the property, and no statement, whether written or oral shall be deemed such a representation, warranty or assumption of liability. Dimensions given in our descriptions may be approximate. While condition reports for most items are stated in the descriptions, prospective bidders are urged to contact Forsythes’ Auctions, LLC directly for detailed information regarding any lot. ESTIMATES. Pre-sale estimates are intended to be guides and may or may not reflect the ultimate hammer price of a lot.

Absentee bidders unknown to us may be required to submit a bank letter of credit prior to the auction, or using a credit card, deposit with Forsythes’ Auctions, LLC a fee equaling 30% of their absentee bid. The issuance of a credit card number is to serve as a deposit on bids and to guarantee payment for any successful bids. All absentee bids are executed competitively by a member of the auction staff.

If you have a shipping preference for any reason, please make sure your shipper carries insurance. We are not responsible for any damage or loss that occurs while your items are in another’s care.
