Payment & Shipping

Payment

Accepted forms of payment: ACH, American Express, Discover, MasterCard, Visa, Wire Transfer

Shipping

We run shipping like a separate business. We charge for boxes, packing labor, packing material and ups shipping and add a 30 percent overall mark up on all of it. We don't accept outside labels. We DO pack well. Our in-house shipping cost is pretty reasonable on most things - and is MUCH less than alternatives like the UPS store, which often does not pack well. We get very few complaints about what is charged. But be warned: large, fragile and/or heavy orders are expensive to ship no matter who you use. We ship in-house because we can promise our buyers streamlined, easy and reliable shipping with very little breakage. If all this isn't OK with you, please arrange for an outside shipper to pick up your items within 14 days of the auction, or you will forfeit your purchase. Shipping questions: [email protected].

If we are shipping - you will get updates from us on shipping progress via email and text, and once packed will receive a text and email with your shipping invoice. We will then send tracking and additional updates. WE DO NOT ACCEPT PERSONAL OR BUSINESS CHECKS. Because of mounting card fraud, we do not accept card payments on total invoices (including buyer's premium) exceeding $7,500.

Shipping questions: [email protected]. We will charge a $500 relisting fee to your card on file on unpaid invoices over $1500. We now ship in house. By bidding and not picking up, you agree to allow Burns Auction to pack and mail your winning items to you, and authorize us to charge your card for shipping and handling. This is assuming our in-house shipping is available. Each lot description says if we will ship or if we must take it to our freight partner. We often charge a small fee to bring from the estate to our facility for shipping, or a much larger fee to transport large items to our freighter. If shipping is not paid within 14 days following the auction we will file a non-paying bidder complaint against you and you will forfeit your lot. We use a program called Shipping Saint to manage our shipping. This system will send you updates such as when we move your purchase to our shipping department, and will send you an invoice once your order is packed. Once you pay the invoice we will ship your package, and Shipping Saint will send you tracking details. Shipping Saint will also have you confirm your address with them before we ship, to ensure it goes to the right location. If lost or damaged - we will have you make an insurance claim through Shipping Saint. We run shipping like a separate business.

If shipping is available you can also have your items shipped! If you buy a lot, bring enough helpers to get everything loaded out on time. If shipping is not available and you don't pick up you agree to forfeit your items, and they will be disposed of at our discretion, meaning we will either throw them in the dumpster or take ownership of them after billing your card. Please leave yourself enough time to get all your items before the cutoff time. By bidding in this auction you authorize us to bill your card if you do not pick up, even if we dispose of your items. At the cutoff time we will close and we will ask bidders to leave, regardless of whether they have finished removing items. Bring people to help you. If you buy a lot, bring a crew so you can get everything out of the home on time.

IF A CRUCIAL PART, ITEM OR ACCESSORY APPEARS TO BE MISSING IN THE PHOTOS, ASSUME IT IS NOT IN THE LOT. IF WE HAVE IT WE WILL SHOOT IT. WE WILL NOT REFUND YOU IF YOU ASSUME THAT SOMETHING IS PRESENT IN A LOT BUT IS NOT VISIBLE IN ANY OF THE PHOTOS. REMEMBER, IF WE HAVE IT, WE WILL PHOTOGRAPH IT. IF WE DON'T, YOU WON'T SEE IT. All Burns Auctions are reserve auctions unless otherwise stated. Auctioneer or auction company employees, contract laborer staff, friends or family may bid in any auction, but only in good faith and with the promise that they will pay for items, with buyer's premium, just like any other bidder - or in the case of an item with a reserve, Burns Auction may bid in the reserve.

DO NOT ASSUME ANY MECHANICAL OR ELECTRONIC ITEM INCLUDING WATCHES, CLOCKS, ELECTRONICS OF ANY TYPE, MOTORIZED ITEMS SUCH AS VEHICLES AND EQUIPMENT, TOOLS OR ANY OTHER ITEM FUNCTION PERFECTLY OR AT ALL. IF WE KNOW SOMETHING WORKS, WE WILL SAY SO IN THE DESCRIPTION AND TO WHAT DEGREE. IF WE KNOW OF DEFECTS WE WILL ALSO DESCRIBE THEM. WE ALSO DO NOT GUARANTEE THAT ANY OF THE ABOVE TYPES OF ELECTRONIC, MECHANICAL OR MOTORIZED ITEMS WILL WORK WHEN YOU PICK THEM UP OR RECEIVE THEM SHIPPED TO YOU AS THEY DID WHEN WE WERE WITH THEM. WE WILL SIMPLY DO OUR BEST TO DESCRIBE THINGS BUT PLEASE DO NOT ASSUME. WHEN IN DOUBT - CALL US AT 614-271-3014 ext 5. WE SELL AN ENORMOUS QUANTITY OF USED, OLD ESTATE ITEMS EACH DAY, WEEK MONTH AND YEAR AND THESE POLICIES ARE IN PLACE BECAUSE WE SIMPLY CANNOT KNOW THE EXACT CONDITION AND DISPOSITION OF EVERYTHING WE SELL, HOWEVER WE WILL TRY OUR BEST TO DETERMINE IMPORTANT DETAILS ABOUT THE CONDITION OF ITEMS WE SELL. THANK YOU! FIREARM PURCHASES: We are an FFL. We are accepting consignments of firearms at this time. If you buy a firearm and are picking up (Ohio Residents Only), you will need to complete an FFL Form 4473 and pass the background check. If we are shipping, we will ship to FFLs only. These restrictions apply to firearms dating from 1898 and onward. Pre 1898 firearms are not classified as firearms and can be handed out and shipped freely. The person picking up must be the person whose name is in the bidder registration. Diamond weights for stones in setting are approximate and are given based on measurements. Loose diamonds are weighed on a diamond scale. Statements of diamond clarity and color are also approximate, and are given to the best of our ability. Burns Auction & Appraisal is not certified as a GIA gemologist. When GIA or other reports are available on diamonds, they are given in item descriptions. You don't have to take the entire lot of contents when you buy. Just take what you want. However, any dumping on or near (or anywhere else for that matter) the auction property is strictly prohibited. If you take items and then dispose of them illegally or near the auction grounds we will charge your card a disposal fee of $200 and file a police report if necessary. The absence of a condition report on a lot does not mean the lot is perfect or free of any defects. We encourage all potential bidders to email [email protected] or to call 614-271-3014 ext. 5 PRIOR to bidding to ask specific condition questions on a given lot. TIE BIDS: we are running multiple bid platforms. Because of this it is possible that there will be a tie bid. We award tie bids arbitrarily as the platforms do not show us when bids were placed, so we have no way to award a tie bid to the person who bids first. So it is possible for a lot to sell for your high bid amount, but not to you. We recommend you watch in real time and bid again if you are not the high bidder but want to be. Do this before the lot closes. By bidding in our auctions you agree to abide by and to follow all of the above terms.

CARD LIMIT $7500

We accept cards for any invoice up to $7500. Above that please ACH or wire us or if coming out pick up in person bring cash or a cashier's check.
