METHODS OF PAYMENT: We accept Cash, Traveler's Checks, Bank or Certified Checks, Money Orders, and Personal & Business Checks with proper identification at the time of registration. We also accept PayPal and we have Visa & MasterCard access with our in-office terminal. Full payment is due at the time of purchase for those attending the Auction. Full payment is due within 14 calendar days from the Auction date for all successful Absentee, Telephone, and Internet Bids.
OUR SHIPPING POLICY: Please recognize that we are a Live Auction Company and not a packaging/shipping company. Once your Auction balance is settled we will deliver your item(s) at no extra charge to the UPS Store in Doylestown PA. They will contact you directly and you can arrange your own shipping instructions and payment with them. We have had very good success with this shipper and highly recommend them. Please keep in mind that the UPS Store not only charges for ground transfer, but also for all packaging material (sometimes having to double-box in accordance with UPS Shipping Guidelines), labor, plus Insurance to protect you in the event that the package does not arrive safely. So please consider shipping costs prior to bidding…not after you bid.
For a Pre-Auction Shipping Quote you should contact The UPS Store directly (215-230-9898) and provide them with the approximate size and weight of the package, and final destination. They will then be able to give you a reasonable shipping cost estimate. However, you should do this BEFORE bidding, not after you have won the item.
You can also pick up your items at our Doylestown PA offices, or you are welcome to arrange for your own preferred method of pick up or shipping.
SALES TAX: Add 6% Sale Tax in Connecticut.
BUYER'S PREMIUM: A Buyer's Premium of 18%, which includes the Internet Bidding Fee, will be added to the hammer price of each lot sold to the Internet Bidder and paid with Visa, MasterCard or through PayPal. This Internet Buyer's Premium will be discounted to 15% if paid with Cash, Traveler's Check, Bank or Certified Check, Money Order, Personal Check, or Business Check.
CONDITION: All property is sold 'As Is, Where Is" and all sales are final. It is the responsibility of the prospective bidder to examine the quality and condition of each lot, either personally or through third party proxy, to best determine their level of interest. Unless an item falls outside the scope of our written Auction Guarantee of Authenticity (see III below), we cannot accept any returns after the fall of the Auctioneer's hammer.

It is your responsibility to personally inspect any items that interest you for condition. If you are unable to personally inspect those items, we highly recommend that you have a third party or proxy whose opinion you trust inspect the items for you and report back to you with their opinion.
In the absence of the above you are welcome to call us for a Condition Report. A Condition Report is nothing more than our subjective professional opinion regarding the Condition of each item in the Auction. When you call us for a Condition Report, we do not physically inspect the actual item at that time. Rather, we refer to notes that have been taken when keying that item for the Auction Catalog. We will always be as honest and forthright as possible with you about Condition. However, when cataloging as many as 1,000+ lots per Auction, honest mistakes may occur. And, Condition may possibly change between the time we originally catalog the item, to when the item is moved to the Auction, during Auction set-up, during the Auction Preview, and during the Post Auction wrap-up and shipping process. As a result we do not accept responsibility for any errors when evaluating or reporting Condition and we cannot accept the return of any items purchased by an Absentee Bidder due to Condition...for any reason.
