Payments are due no later than the Sunday follwoing the auction close date. If payment is not made by then there will be a $10 late charge fee applied. NO EXCEPTIONS. If you cannot pay, please do not bid. Consignors need to be paid and this is not fair to us to chase people down all the time. Those who do not pay within 8 days, the items will be marked abandoned and they will go back into the auction. The bidder will then be blocked from bidding in the future. This could impact your overall HiBid score and you might find it difficult to bid on other auction with different auction houses as well. We hate blocking folks, but sometimes it is neccessary.
***** Covid-19 Social Distance measures are in place when picking up. Please come to the door and ring the bell when you arrive. Then please back up. We will bring the items out for you. If there is another customer here when you arrive, please be courteous and wait until they have loaded up before you come to the door for your items. We want to ensure everyone stays safe during these times. Please if you can try to refrain from using cash that would be very appreciated. Etransfers are contactless and safer for everyone. While we understand etransfers cannot be done by everyone, we are trying to limit the cash that comes in and leaves. If you have any questions regarding this, please ask. *****
Items must be picked up during scheduled pickup times. Any items not picked up during these times could be charged a $10 late pickup fee. We need the space around here. We are not a storage facility. If you cannot pick up for some reason, please communicate that to us so we know what is going on. You will not be charged a late pickup fee if you communicate.
