We work very hard for the consignor as well as the buyer. The auction moves fast between the auctioneer, the on site bids, and the live internet bids. Because of this, one little delay, or what we call 'hiccup' in the internet connection, can cause an online bid to be missed. We apologize if this happens, but it is sometimes inevitable. Please be aware of this when attending an online auction.
Due to the element of Third Party Auctions and the reliability/unreliability of technical issues, we reserve the right to end an auction early or extend an auction as we see fit. We value our customers, both buyers and sellers, and try very hard to ensure an exciting, smooth, successful auction! We are happy and willing to work with you under any circumstances.
Payment must be made in full by the end of the auction. Internet bidders will be charged a 26% Buyers Premium and 7% IL State Sales tax for IL residents only.
All payments are due at the end of the auction. For your convenience, we are now enrolled in online payment processing with AuctionZip/Invaluable. An invoice will be sent to your email address after the auction. Please submit payment immediately upon receiving the invoice. Payments NOT received within four days of auction will automatically be charged on the card provided.
Please call or email us with any other payment questions. 815.923.7000
