Live Online Bidding Terms and Conditions
All merchandise sold “as is, where is.” Descriptions believed correct but not guaranteed. We do not give refunds. The winning bidder becomes the owner of the item immediately at the close of the bid.
LIVE Bidding: Payment is required within 3 business days of the auction. Items will be shipped once payment has been received. Harlowe-Powell will not be held responsible for errors or failure to execute bid(s).
Reserve Price: Some lots are offered subject to a reserve. A reserve is a confidential minimum price below which such a lot will not be sold. Harlowe-Powell will act to protect the reserve by bidding through the auctioneer. The auctioneer may open the bidding on any lot below the reserve by placing a bid on behalf of the Seller and may continue to bid on behalf of the Seller up to the amount of the reserve.
Contract:Your bid is a contract. Place a bid only if you’re serious about buying the item. If you are the successful and winning bidder, you have entered into a legally binding contract to purchase the property bid on from the seller. You should contact the auction house to resolve any questions before bidding. We are a busy auction house and need to ship things quickly to make room for new items coming in. Please complete your transactions with us as soon as possible so that we can get your items picked up and shipped to you quickly!
Shipping: Buyers pay all shipping, insurance and packaging supply costs. PLEASE NOTE! Shipping furniture is expensive! Please do not bid on large items unless you are willing to pay the cost.
We recommend an excellent local company for shipping:
Blue Ridge Pack and Ship
805 Preston Avenue
Charlottesville, VA 22903
You are welcome to arrange shipping through a different shipper and we have a number of freight shippers we can recommend.
