Conditions of Sale

Payment: All items are to be paid for in United States American Funds. We accept Cash, pre-approved checks, Visa, MC, American Express, Discover & wire transfers. All items must be paid for in full before being removed from our facility. All fees associated with the cost of a wire transfer or bank check are those of the purchaser.
Must have valid driver's license when paying by charge cards & checks.
Checks are to be pre-approved by auctioneer prior to the auction (at least 2 business days before auction, NOT the day of the auction). A letter of reference from your bank is recommended to those who have never done business with us before. The auctioneer reserves the right to hold merchandise purchased by checks that have not been pre- approved until we can see that the check has cleared the bank. It is our policy to hold merchandise on all first time buyers, due to our bank's recommendation of 10 days, until the check has cleared the bank. (This enables the check to clear the bank and if it does not, then it gives them the time to notify us via mail).
* There will be a $25 fee charged for all returned checks.

* Third party checks are not accepted.
Note: Delay in payment, means delay in shipment to you. Delay in shipment to you could mean you lose all possibility of a return, so please make a prompt payment. The speediest forms of payments are credit cards or bank checks. Personal or Business checks from first time buyers will hold the shipment up for 10 business days until checks have cleared the bank. This could jeopardize the warranties of the descriptions if the shipment exceeds 18 business days.
9A. Payment must be in the form of either Wire transfers or Checks (made out in United States funds). Credit cards are only accepted for the shipping process. All fees associated with the use of a wire transfer are the responsibility of the purchaser.

9B. A payment by wire transfer or bank check qualifies the purchaser for a 2.5% deduction on their Buyers Premium.
9C. All firearms (this includes all antiques, curios or modern firearms), plus edged weapons and any item that has a portion of an animal (ivory, etc..) must go through either an exporter or another FFL dealer that supplies this service.

Buyer's Premium: 5. BUYERS PREMIUM OF 17.5% will be applied to all property sold to be paid by the buyer as part of the purchase price and is therefore subject to applicable state sales tax. A 2.5% discount will be given to those paying by Cash, Wire Transfer, Bank check or pre-approved check.

Maine residents who do not present a valid ANNUAL RESALE CERTIFICATE at the time of registration will have to pay the 5.5% sales tax. NO EXCEPTIONS.
Under Maine law, items to be shipped within Maine will have the tax applied.
If you reside in the state of Maine, but maintain an out of state tax number, you must pay sales tax. This is Maine law.
Out of State residents. If you are not a Maine resident, we require a copy of your sales tax certificate or an affidavit (proof of your business, such as business check or card, etc.). Due to the recent Supreme Court ruling, items shipped to some out of state residents may be charged sales tax, if your state requires our company to collect the recipient's state sales tax.
