Auction Terms & Conditions Terms & Conditions: Regarding Internet Absentee Bids: Some items may have reserves. The estimates should give you a good guideline as to what you should bid. If there is a reserve on an item, the low range of the estimate will give you a pretty good idea of what the reserve might be. Your bid will will compete against other absentee bids, floor bidders, and possibly reserves at the live auction. When you leave an absentee bid you must make your best bid, and that is what is entered into our system. Absentee bids will be executed at the discretion of the auctioneer. Also, on very rare occasions Direct Auction Galleries may miss executing an absentee bid. Direct Auction Galleries provides absentee bidding as a convenience for you, and is not responsible for any missed bids. If you want an item badly, please take the time and come to the live auction.
All Items are sold as/is. There is a 15% Buyer's Premium. 9% Sales Tax will be Charged to Anyone without a dealer's Resale Number. Coins are not taxed. Items shipped out-of-state will be exempt from sales tax. Items picked up from our location will be subject to sales tax. Visa, MC, Disc or Amex Credit Card is Required to Bid. Items won will be charged to your credit or debit card. Those who physically pick up their items may pay with cash or approved check. Shipping and shipping arrangements will ultimately be the responsibility of the buyer. For simple pack-n-ships, Direct Auction can pack and ship for $25 per box for boxes weighing 10 lbs. or less. This cost may be higher if there is heavier weight involved, or high insurance costs. For more difficult packing jobs, or if there is simply too much to be shipped, we ship via the UPS store. We can bring items there to be packed and shipped, but you, the buyer, must make the arrangements and payment. Items won may be picked up at our facility the Wednesday after the auction through the Saturday after the auction. Hours are 9:30 AM to 5:30 PM. The Seller(s) Reserve the Right to Bid, with the Auctioneer acting as the Seller's Agent. Most Items will be Sold Without Reserve.
Regarding Shipping: Getting your items packed and shipped can sometimes be expensive, so bid judiciously. There are also limitations on size and weight of items to be shipped. For example, most furniture pieces will not be able to be shipped. You will be required to get your items insured as well. If you find the costs to ship the item you won is too high, or the item is unshippable, you will be required to pay for, and then re-sell the item you bid on at one of our future auctions without reserve. Our normal commission will be charged in these instances. We recommend not bidding on furniture unless you plan on picking it up in a timely manner or sending a truck to pick it up.
