Terms & Conditions of Sale 15% Buyers’ Premium (20% online)
All items are sold as-is to the highest bidder, and neither we, nor the consignor make any warranties or representations with respect to these items, and neither will be responsible for the correctness of description, genuineness, attribution, provenance, period, culture, age, source, origin, authenticity, or condition of any item sold. No statement, written or oral, shall be deemed such a warranty, representation, or assumption of liability. We, nor the consignor, are responsible for errors or omissions in the catalog or any additional material, written or oral. Merchandise returns will not be accepted for any reason.
The auctioneer reserves the right to reject any bid. The highest bidder acknowledged by the auctioneer will be the purchaser. If any dispute arises between bidders, the item in dispute shall, at the auctioneer’s discretion, either be re-offered for sale or sold as stated. In any event, the auctioneer’s decision will be final. Title will pass to the highest bidder when the auctioneer says, “SOLD”, and thereafter the property is at the purchaser’s sole risk and responsibility.
Very few items in this sale are offered subject to a reserve. This is a confidential minimum price agreed upon by the consignor and Allard Auctions, Inc. below which the item will not be sold. The reserve may be executed by bidding from the auctioneer, his assistant, or the owner.
All written and phone-in absentee bids will be executed by the auctioneer’s assistant or the auctioneer himself, by use of a raised hand at the podium. Additionally, the representative(s) of the online bidding company, on behalf of pre-registered, on-line absentee bidders, will execute those bids live from the auction floor in the same manner. In the event of multiple absentee bids on an item, bidding on the floor must, and will, start at a figure no higher than the highest absentee bid, and no lower than the second highest absentee bid. Also, if any two or more absentee bids on a single item are tied, the first one received will be the one acknowledged and recorded. Written and phone-in absentee bids below the printed low estimate are discouraged.
By submitting any bid, whether in person, in writing, or any other means, the buyer acknowledges and accepts these terms and conditions.
Payment and Pick-up
A buyer’s premium of 15% (20% for on-line bidders) of the successful bid price will be added to the purchase price and is payable by the purchaser as the total purchase price. All purchases are subject to state and local sales tax unless the purchaser possesses a valid sales tax exemption number, or the item(s) is being shipped out of state. Exemption numbers from participating states are as per state tax codes. Tax numbers must be registered at the time a bidder number is issued. Signed documentation may be required to qualify for tax exemptions.
Purchases may be paid for by cash, check, or credit card. Personal checks will be accepted only if credit has been established with Allard Auctions, Inc. or if a bank authorization has been received guaranteeing a personal check.
Successful online bidders agree to have their items shipped automatically and the cost charged to their credit card by the shipping company without prior approval. Any claims or other shipping related issues will be between the shipper and the purchaser.
Allard Auctions, Inc. reserves the right to withdraw any property before or during the sale, and has no liability whatsoever for the withdrawal of property. The local Federal Fish and Wildlife Dept. has been notified, and any items found to be illegal to sell because of feathers, attachments, or any other reason, will be pulled from the auction and are not offered for sale.
