    See BUYING page at www.jeffreysevans.com for more information on refunds.

    CATALOG GUARANTEE
    GLASS & LIGHTING AUCTIONS:

    All catalog descriptions are guaranteed to be accurate in the matter of authenticity, condition and measurements unless otherwise noted in the catalog description. Measurements are guaranteed to be accurate to within one inch.

    Due to the high number of absentee bids that we execute, we are very meticulous in our description of the condition of each piece. Many of the minor flaws that we note are perfectly acceptable and do not detract from the item's desirability or value; however we do not consider light wear, small manufacturing flaws, glass impurities or lightly tinted glass to be notable flaws.

    If you are a bidder who demands flawlessness, it is recommended that you examine the item(s) in person, or have a trusted representative inspect the item(s) on your behalf.

    Lamps are measured to the top of the collar and are without burners and chimneys unless otherwise noted.

    ANTIQUES, AMERICANA & DECORATIVE ARTS AUCTIONS:

    All catalog descriptions are believed to be accurate in the matter of authenticity and condition, but ultimately all lots are sold "as is." Antiques, by their very nature, will exhibit wear, minor losses and breaks, and small repairs commensurate with age. We only note condition issues that in our opinion significantly affect the integrity of the item. Returns will only be considered for items found to be fake/reproduction and/or have significant damage/restoration not noted in the catalog description.

    If you are a bidder who demands flawlessness, it is recommended that you examine the item(s) in person, or have a trusted representative inspect the item(s) on your behalf.

    All measurements are approximate. Please contact us if you require exact measurements.

    All rugs are sold strictly "as is" with no guarantees as to age, origin, or condition. Absolutely no refunds will be considered on rugs.

    Fine jewelry is guaranteed only regarding gold content and authenticity of diamonds. Authenticity of other stones and grades of any stones are not guaranteed.

    ALL AUCTIONS:

    All requests for additional information will be accepted until 24 hours prior to the start of the auction. Call 540.434.3939 (ext. 0) or email info@jeffreysevans.com.

    The auctioneer reserves the right to make verbal corrections and provide additional information from the auction block at the time of sale. Absentee bids will not be executed on lots found to be other than as described in the catalog unless one of our representatives has personally conveyed the updated catalog description to the absentee bidder. The bidder will then have the option to alter or cancel the original absentee bid.
    SHIPPING NOTES
    1. The buyer is responsible for all associated shipping costs.

    2. We offer professional packing and shipping services. Our packing services are billed at $15/hour. It is our policy to double-box all glass, ceramics and fragile items with two to three inches of padding/cushioning between the inner and outer boxes. You may also make your own arrangements for pick up and delivery of your items.

    3. We DO NOT crate and/or ship furniture, other over-sized items, or items of an unusually fragile nature (i.e. items that are already structurally compromised).

    4. Once you receive your initial invoice, you must call, email, or submit our online credit card payment form in order to confirm receipt of your invoice and inform us of your method of payment and plans for shipping or pick up. We will not assume that items are to be shipped. Deadline to contact us is 5:00 PM ET on the Friday following the auction (if sale was held on a weekend) or 5:00 PM ET on the Monday following the auction (if sale was held on a weekday).

    5. The buyer is responsible for coordinating pick up or shipment of any merchandise that we do not ship (items must be paid in full before leaving our gallery).

    6. We will combine multiple lots whenever possible.

    7. Actual shipping cost cannot be determined until the packing process has been completed.

    8. Merchandise that we do not ship must be picked up within 2 weeks of the sale date. Items not picked up after 2 weeks will be subject to a monthly storage fee. Any merchandise not removed within 60 days of the sale date will be considered abandoned.

    9. Shipping costs are based on the final auction price, delivery zip/postal code, number, size and weight of packages, and packing time.

    10. We will gladly provide estimated shipping costs up until one hour prior to closing time the day before the auction. Please contact us with the lot number(s) in which you are interested as well as the delivery zip/postal code and country. It is our sincere intent to provide an accurate shipping estimate (+/- 20% of actual cost), but we are under no obligation to honor the estimated shipping cost quoted prior to the auction.

    11. Our preferred carriers are UPS (Domestic) and USPS (Canadian and International). UPS packages with a value of $1,000 or more require an adult signature for delivery.

    12. Special requests for alternate shipping methods may result in an additional cost to you. Our UPS account provides for a daily pick up at our facility; therefore, with the exception of Canadian and International shipments, UPS is generally less expensive than USPS. A small handling fee may be charged for packages that must be taken to the Post Office.

    13. Insurance is mandatory unless the buyer provides a "waiver of insurance" in writing. Unless the buyer has his or her own insurance, shipping without insurance is not recommended and is at the buyer's risk.

    14. Items are packed and shipped in the order in which payment is received. We handle a large volume of shipping after an auction and many buyers win multiple lots, which requires additional packing time. Your patience is appreciated.

    15. Any item purchased by an off-site bidder that is shipped out of the state of Virginia is not subject to VA sales tax. EXCEPTION: The buyer is a Virginia resident. In this case the purchase is taxable, unless the buyer is tax exempt and we have a valid Sales & Use Tax Exemption form on file.

    Additional information can be found at www.jeffreysevans.com/buying.php
    PAYMENT INFORMATION
    1. Funds are accepted in United States Dollars (USD) only.

    2. Invoices are sent within 2 business days following an auction. Successful bidders should contact us by 5 pm ET on the Friday following the auction to make arrangements for payment and shipping or pick up. We pack for shipping only upon request.

    3. WE DO NOT ACCEPT PAYPAL.

    4. Acceptable payment methods are: CASH, CREDIT CARD (Visa and MasterCard only), CHECK (personal, business or certified/cashier's check), MONEY ORDER, and BANK WIRE TRANSFER (additional fee for wired funds).

    5. CREDIT CARDS: Go to https://www.jeffreysevans.com/credit_card_order.php to use our secure, Online Credit Card Payment form.

    6. To expedite shipping, we recommend payment by MasterCard, Visa, money order or cashier's/certified check. If payment is made with uncertified check, we may hold merchandise for up to 10 days before we ship or release for pick up.

    7. Regarding bank wire transfers: An additional fee applies per transaction (currently $14.00 USD). Your bank may also charge you a fee to wire funds.

    8. NEW FOR 2014: PAYMENT FOR ITEM TOTAL IS DUE WITHIN 5 DAYS OF THE AUCTION (EVEN IF SHIPPING CHARGES ARE PENDING). Applicable shipping cost may be paid separately, after packing is completed. (We pack to ship upon request only and work in order of request. We cannot know actual shipping cost until items are packed.) Any special payment arrangements must be pre-approved by an authorized representative of Jeffrey S. Evans & Associates. Such arrangements must be requested in writing, and authorization must be obtained prior to bidding.

    9. You must inform us if you are tax exempt for your purchases (even if you are a past customer) as the Invaluable information is not shared with our customer database.

    10. Unpaid accounts 30 days post-sale are subject to a 2% monthly finance charge. Unless prearranged with JSE&A, merchandise not removed within 2 weeks of the sale is subject to a storage fee and merchandise not removed or consigned within 60 days of the sale is considered abandoned.

    11. Each returned check is subject to a $50 service charge.

    12. The buyer is liable for all fees/costs associated with the collection of balances due, including attorney's fees.

    13. Visit www.jeffreysevans.com/after_the_auction.php for additional terms and important information.
