Payment Information: You will be notified of your succesful bids with a bill, the day after the auction has ended. PAYMENT IS DUE UPON RECEIPT. A late charge will be assessed on all balances not paid, at the rate of 12% APR commencing thirty days after the bill is sent. If any accounts become more than 60 days overdue, the consignor will be given the name of the buyer who is responsible for holding up their funds.
Shipping: After payment is received we automatically send purchases via United Parcel Service COD with a signature required, unless otherwise specified. There is a charge for the shipping costs, insurance, as well as a UPS COD and Signature Required fee. We can not ship via UPS or FedEx to a PO box, so please be sure to include your street address. If you wish to have the purchases shipped by any other method, you must contact our office to make those arrangements. Shipping is done on a first come, first served basis, and can take up to four weeks. *Note* Items won through Invaluable will not be available for pick up at the auction facility on the day of the sale.
Buyer's Premium: The buyer's premium, assessed on each selling lot, is 18% of the hammer price, plus a 5% Invaluable fee. For payments made using Visa or MasterCard, the buyer's premium is 21%, plus the 5% Invaluable fee.
Taxes on your purchase: There is a 8% sales tax in Illinois. Tax is waived if buyer presents a valid resale certificate from any state or has purchase shipped out of Maryland.
Condition Statement: We have attempted to make a consistent effort in cataloging and correctly describing the property being auctioned. The catalog descriptions are guaranteed for authenticity and condition. Should the need arise, the auctioneer reserves the right to make verbal corrections and provide additional information from the block, at the time of the sale.
