* If you are bidding on more than one item you may also enter your absentee bids by submittting the required information (right) to our email address: firstname.lastname@example.org

No absentee bids will be accepted in amounts less than $50.00 without prior consent of the auction firm. When two or more absentee bids exist for any one item, the minimum the item could sell for (via absentee) must be no less than the amount of the lowest absentee bid plus one additional bid increment. It will be the responsibility of the absentee bidder to obtain a condition report for any and all lots on which the absentee bidder intends to place an absentee bid. By placing an absentee bid, a person or organization placing the absentee bids(s) agrees that he/she or organization is satisfied that the condition of the item, on which the bid is placed, is satisfactory and meets the minimum requirements of the bidder. Further, the absentee bidder agrees that any absentee bid placed on any item signifies that the bidder holds the auction firm free of any subsequent claim regarding the condition of the auction item. Additionally, the absentee bidder acknowledges that he/she or the organization leaving the bid(s) has the right to examine the item in person prior to the auction or may have a representative examine the item on the bidder's behalf prior to the auction. Bids received from the auction floor in live bidding on the day of the auction will take precedence over identical absentee bids. Absentee bids must include a 13% buyers premium (3% waived for cash or good check). All absentee bids must include a phone number or other method for immediate contact. By placing an absentee bid, a person or organization placing the absentee bid(s) agrees to abide by the "Terms of Sale" and absentee bidding procedures outlined herein.
