Cowan's Auctions offers an in-house, full-service shipping department. If you'd like a shipping estimate before the auction, contact Cowan's in-house shipping department at email@example.com or 513.871.1670 x219 with the desired lot numbers and destination address. Requests should be submitted at least 24 hours prior to auction start. NOTE: for larger and/or valuable items, shipping charges can be substantial. Please allow at least 14 to 21 days after payment for us to ship your lot.
The "Purchase Price" for each lot shall equal the hammer price, buyer's premium, sales tax and, if applicable, all packing, handling, insurance and shipping costs. U.S. bidders may pay with cash, personal check, money order, bank check or wire transfer. Bidders outside the U. S. will be required to pay by wire transfer. Credit cards are accepted on an auction-by-auction basis - please contact the office prior to bidding in the auction to confirm payment options. Bidders unknown to Cowan's may be asked to provide additional personal identity or banking information. Cowan's reserves the right to hold a purchased lot until a check has cleared.
PLEASE NOTE: A surcharge of 3% will be assessed to all credit card transactions. This surcharge is not greater than our cost of acceptance.
Buyers who are present at the auction must pay the full Purchase Price at the time of the sale. Buyers who bid by telephone, by internet, or who are absentee bidders will be invoiced within 5 days after the close of the auction and must pay the full Purchase Price for each purchased lot within 14 days after the date of the auction. No property will be released by Cowan's unless the Purchase Price has been paid in full.
Institutional billing may be available, and should be arranged prior to the auction.
