Terms & Conditions

1. A Buyer's Premium will be added to the hammer price of each lot and is payable by the purchaser as part of the total purchase price. The Buyer's Premium for purchases on Invaluable is 29% of the final bid up to and including $100,000, and 24% for the remaining balance above $100,000. PLEASE NOTE: ALL PURCHASES PAID FOR BY APPROVED CREDIT CARD ARE SUBJECT TO AN ADDITIONAL 3% ADMINISTRATIVE CHARGE.

2. All goods are sold "AS-IS" and all sales are final. Formal "Condition Reports" are not included in online or printed catalogs. Condition information included in Woodbury Auction item descriptions are for information purposes only and may not be relied upon as the equivalent of a formal "Condition Report." Emailed conditioned inquiries will not be responded to directly by return email. Any additional condition information generated in response to bidder requests will be added to the online catalog lot description. Condition reports may also be obtained by telephone at (203)266-0323. Any request for additional photos will be responded to when the information becomes available. Additional images will be added to the online catalog lot description. It is the responsibility of prospective bidders to examine lots and decide their level of interest. Neither the auctioneer, nor the consignor, is responsible for the accuracy of any printed or verbal descriptions. All weights and measurements are approximate. Buyer relies solely on his/her own judgment when bidding.

3. All bidders are required to register and give full identification prior to the beginning of the auction and are required to use the number issued them when identifying themselves as the successful bidder.

4. The auctioneer has the sole and exclusive power and authority, without exception and without liability, to (a) resolve any disputes between bidders, (b) determine whether to pass or re-offer any lot for sale, (c) reject or challenge any bid or advance at the start of the bidding or during the bidding, and (d) otherwise regulate the bidding and its increments. The auctioneer shall further have the right to reject any opening bid that, in the auctioneers' sole opinion and discretion, is not commensurate with the value of the lot. The highest bidder as determined by the auctioneer shall be the purchaser. If the auctioneer receives more than one bid of the same value, only the first received will be accepted. If any dispute arises after the sale, the sale record maintained by Woodbury Auction is conclusive. Although Woodbury Auction will endeavor to execute accurately any absentee bids or online bids, this is done only as a convenience to clients who are not physically present at the auctions, and we are not responsible for any errors or omissions which may occur in the exercise of this service.

"Auctioneer" as used in these Conditions of Sale means an employee or representative of Woodbury Auction duly licensed as an auctioneer or otherwise authorized by Woodbury Auction to conduct an auction under the laws of the State of Connecticut.


5. Woodbury Auction offers the online tools as a convenience to our clients. Please be aware that in rare cases, an absentee bid submitted through the Internet may not be accepted by the auctioneer conducting the sale (if, for instance, an equivalent absentee bid was placed directly through Woodbury Auction). This may occur even when the Internet absentee bid was placed earlier than an equivalent absentee bid. No bids may be submitted after the auctioneer has closed the lot. The auctioneer has final discretion over which bids to accept, as described elsewhere in this document.

6. The purchaser assumes full responsibility for items at the fall of the hammer. Thereafter the property is at the risk of the Buyer and neither the Seller nor the Woodbury Auction shall be responsible for loss or damage.

7. Some lots carry reserves or minimum selling prices. This is a figure set by the consignor and Woodbury Auction below which a lot will not be sold. Woodbury Auction will execute the reserve bids on behalf of consignors. The reserve will not exceed the low estimate. Estimates are subject to change at any time prior to the offering of each lot.

8. As noted above in Section 4, absentee and telephone bids (telephone bids must open at the low estimate) are accepted and will be executed when possible, although solely as a convenience to customers. Woodbury Auction will not be held responsible for any errors or omissions, or failure to execute bids accurately. Bidders are encouraged to submit absentee and telephone bid requests 24 hours prior to the auction, and Woodbury Auction reserves the right to decline acceptance of absentee and phone bid requests tendered after 5pm on the day prior to the sale. Purchases will not be available to absentee buyers for pick-up during the auction unless arrangements are made prior to the sale.

9. Items may be withdrawn at any time prior to being offered.

10. Payment can be made with cash, money orders, cashier's check or personal/business checks (purchases paid for with personal/business checks or international bank checks/money orders are not released until payment has cleared, 10 days post-deposit).
