Payment: Wickliff Auctioneers accepts cash, approved checks, Mastercard and Visa for payment, as well as cashier’s checks and money orders. Payment may also be made via Paypal or wire transfer. Items may not be removed from the gallery until complete payment has been made. Online bidders must contact us by e-mail, PayPal or telephone to arrange payment. <b>Credit card information provided for Artfact Live! registration is not shared with the auction company.</b> For absentee and fax bidders, if the winning bidder has not contacted us within 24 hours of being notified of their success, we will charge the credit card supplied with the bid.
Shipping: Wickliff Auctioneers does not provide in-house shipping services, but is happy to provide references for outside shippers who make pickups at our facility following each auction. If you are a winning bidder and wish to have your item shipped, please contact us for information for recommended shipping outlets.
Winning bidders who wish to pick up items after the completion of any auction may do so for 1.5 hours following the last item selling, or on Mondays from 10am until 5pm. We do not have laborers on staff, so anyone needing assistance in moving large items should supply their own help. Pickups of any item more than 48 hours after an auction require an appointment as our showroom is not open to the public except during auction events and previews. All items are to be removed from our gallery within 5 days following an auction.
If large item moving services are required, we can also recommend contract intrastate and interstate moving companies with whom we have experience.
Premium: Wickliff Auctioneers Buyer's Premium of 12% will be added to the auctioneer’s hammer price. Additionally, an Artfact convenience fee of 3% will be added to the winning bid. A 25% deposit based upon an item's low estimate may be required in advance unless credit has been previously established.
Condition Reporting: We are pleased to provide additional information regarding the condition/age/authenticity of any item, <b>we may not be able to respond to such requests received within 24 hours before the stated start time of any auction.</b> Bidders are advised that opinions regarding condition or authenticity are given as our best information available, and that the bidder is making their decision to bid based upon their own opinion of the condition, age or authenticity of any item. Additionally, <b>the absence of a condition report on any item does not indicate that the item is free from flaws.</b> Please contact our office with questions about the condition of an item prior to bidding.
Taxes: Indiana residents will pay 7% sales tax, whether the item is purchased online or in person. Out-of-state residents who PERSONALLY PICK UP THEIR PURCHASES at our location will also be subject to Indiana 7% sales tax. All other purchasers are responsible for payment of any applicable taxes in their state or country of residence.
