Terms and Conditions of Catalogue Auctions
By registering for this auction you agree to the terms and conditions as stated below.
Conditions: Chandler's Auctions and Estate Sales strives to accurately describe the items being sold, but all property offered for sale is strictly AS-IS WHERE-IS with all faults. All sales are final and no refunds are given. The sales records and recordings shall be conclusive. It is the responsibility of the bidder to determine the exact condition and authenticity of each item. No statement in this catalogue or by representatives of C.A.E.S. shall be considered as a warranty or assumption of liability. Oral and written descriptions given by C.A.E.S. staff members in person or electronically are given as a courtesy to a client, are only an opinion, and should not be considered as a guarantee of age, composition, or authenticity. The absence of a condition statement does not imply that the lot is in perfect condition or completely free from wear and tear or imperfections. A good condition report considers age and use of item with appropriate wear. By bidding, you signify that you have either closely examined the items, have chosen not to examine them, or have hired an independent agent to examine the item(s) for you. Condition reports are available via the online catalog or by contacting The Gallery on First using 336-416-3803 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Auctioneer: Chandler Eshleman, NCAL#9849. The auctioneer reserves the right to withdraw a lot for any reason he deems appropriate, including any lots that may have a reserve, or if there is a lack of bidding interest or lack of appropriate bids. C.A.E.S. shall always have the right to withdraw any item at any time for any reason and to default any sale in the event of an error or dispute.
Terms: Sales are subject to the following terms and conditions of sale: Bidding is available by live in-house bidding, live internet bidding, absentee, and telephone. There is an 18% buyers premium, and live internet bidding is available on live platforms with a 23% buyers premium. Payment is due at the end of the auction by cash, certified funds, wire transfer, or approved check. Visa and MasterCard are available for purchases under $1000.
Invoices greater than $1000 require certified funds, check, or wire transfer.
North Carolina sales tax is applicable. Based on location and type of auction additional taxes may be due or exempt.
Online Bids: Live internet bidding is available during the auction. Current bids on the internet will be executed on your behalf during the auction by www.LiveAuctioneers.com. However, C.A.E.S. cannot be held liable for live internet bids that are not sent, received, or executed by the administrator. If you are bidding live, real-time on-line, please bid quickly because there is a time delay in receiving live bids.
Absentee and Telephone Bids: Arrangements for absentee and phone bidding can be made by completing and submitting the Absentee Bid Form by 5:00 P.M. the day prior to sale day. This form is available in the gallery as well as via email (email@example.com) or on our website (www.chandlersauction.com) Phone reservation contact numbers cannot be changed after 5:00 P.M. the day prior to the sale. Any changes must be made by speaking directly to a representative at the gallery by phone. All bids must be secured with a valid credit card number (Visa/MC). All absentee bids will be executed in a fair, competitive and confidential manner. While every effort is made to execute and honor absentee and phone bids, C.A.E.S is not responsible for failure to execute a bid and is not liable for any losses incurred as a result of failure to execute absentee bids or failed phone reservations. In case of identical bids, the first bid received will take precedence. Where appropriate, written bids will be rounded down to the nearest amount consistent with the auctioneers bidding increments. NOTE: It is the bidders responsibility to accurately record Lot Number and Bid Amount or Telephone number on any Absentee or On-Line bid form. C.A.E.S. assumes no responsibility or liability in the event a bidder fails to do so. Leaving an absentee or telephone bid indicates the bidder is willing to open the bid at one half the low estimate of the lot. Bids cannot be submitted, altered, or cancelled via voicemail. All phone and absentee bids handled by staff in person are executed with an 21% buyers premium with discounts of 3% for cash, wire transfer, check, or certified funds payment.
Estimated Weights and Measurements: Weights in catalogue description have been estimated through measurement and are to be used as approximate guidelines and not relied on as exact. Unless otherwise stated, all stones have been measured and graded in their settings. Metal weight given for jewelry items with stones is inclusive of stone weight. Buyers are reminded that many colored gemstones have historically been treated to enhance their appearance.
Clocks and Watches: No representation or warranty that any clock or watch is in working order is given. There is no guarantee to works or movements. Virtually all clocks and watches have been repaired in the course of their lifetime and may include parts not original to them.
