auction terms and conditions

1. A buyer's premium of 21% of the hammer price will be added to each purchase to reach the total sales price.

2. Acceptable forms of payment are PayPal (preferred), credit cards (via Invaluable's own payment system as we do not have access to your card info), bank money order/check and cash.

3. Complete payment is required within 7 days of invoicing.
Your credit card on file will be automatically charged 4 days after second reminder invoice has been sent and payment has not yet been received. If you do not provide a valid credit card to be charged, you will receive an unpaid items strike and will be blocked from bidding in Yardley Antiques' subsequent auctions.

4. The successful bidder is responsible for removing the won item(s) from the auction house within 4 weeks of auction end, otherwise items will be considered abandoned property and title will revert back to the auction house (forfeited).
Due to very limited storage space for sold items, we require that any arrangements for the pick-up or shipment of purchased items completed or at least discussed with us within 30 days of auction end. Once an item has sold, it is stored at the owner's risk. Advance notice of 24 hours must be given before items are picked up in person (please email Nessa@YardleyAntiques.com for an appointment). Yardley Antiques reserves the right to charge a fee of $5 per day, per item, if not removed within 30 days from date of sale. Items not removed 60 days after auction end, may at the discretion of Yardley Antiques, be sold without notice to the original purchaser, to cover the cost of the merchandise and/or storage charges.

NOTE: due to a large number of buyers who do not bother to pay for shipping charges, any items left at Bucks Ship and Print and unpaid for will be returned to Yardley Antiques after 7 days (after paid items have been dropped off for shipping preparation at the shipping store) and title will revert back to the auction house (purchase forfeited). Please see your email inbox, since both Yardley Antiques and the shipper will notify buyer of the drop-off of the won lots.
For heavy or larger furniture, please get a quote at uShip.com.
