Terms and Conditions

Terms and Conditions


Terms and Conditions

Notice:  You must read the terms and conditions for each individual sale.  Each sale has unique conditions that will impact the terms and conditions applicable.  When you register for the individual sale, you agree to the terms written for that sale.  Unless otherwise specified in the terms for the specific sale, the below terms and conditions will apply.

Conditions of Sale

All sales are final and all property is sold “As is, Where is.” It is the bidder’s responsibility to determine condition and usefulness of the items purchased. We attempt to describe all these items to try to give you a visual of the item you are bidding on. We describe them to the best of our ability and many times rely on information from the consignor that is given to us. 

Buyers Premium

Buyers premium is 18% with 5% discount for cash

Bidding

A bid by any person shall be conclusive proof that the person has made himself acquainted with these conditions of sale and has agree to be bound by them. In the event of non-payment during posted pickup days, we reserve the right to charge the outstanding invoice balance to the credit card you provided upon registration. Failure to honor your bid may result in loss of bidding privileges.

Payment

Rusty by Design accepts VISA, Mastercard, AMEX and cash.  We do not accept checks or cashier checks.  All credit card and cash payments shall be processed by Rusty by Design.

Authenticity

Though all descriptions are believed to be correct, neither auction house nor seller makes any warranties of any kind with respect to the property and in no event shall be held responsible for having made or implied any warranty of description, genuineness, authorship, attribution, provenance, period, culture, source origin, fitness for a particular purpose, condition etc. 

Auction

The Auction house owners, employees and consignors reserve the right to bid on any items in auction. Persons attending preview or auction during removal of goods assume all risks of damage of or loss to person and property and specifically release the auctioneer from liability therefore. Neither auctioneer nor his principal shall be liable by reason of any defect in or condition of the premises on which the sale is held including but not limited to personal injury, fire or theft. If foregoing conditions or any other applicable conditions are not complied with, in addition to other remedies available to Auctioneer and Seller by law, including without limitation, the right to hold the purchaser liable for the bid price, auctioneer at his option may 1) resell the property publicly or privately, with the purchaser being liable for the payment of any deficiency plus all costs incurred or 2) cancel the sale, retaining all liquidated damages on all payment made by purchaser. Auctioneer commission and all other incidental damages will be charged. Auctioneer is acting as an agent and agent only and is not responsible for the acts of his or her principals.  

Pickup Times

You must read the terms and conditions for each specific sale.  Unless otherwise specified, the following terms will apply:  Pick up times are firm unless extenuating circumstances warrant i.e., acts of nature, etc. All items must be picked up during the published times. If you cannot make pickup during the established times, DO NOT BID. Do not risk placing a bid hoping that we can store your items! We do not have the room or the resources to store your items. Again, if you cannot make pickup during the established times, DO NOT BID. If you do choose to bid and fail to pick up your items during the published times, we will charge the credit card on your file for the invoice amount, plus a $65 penalty fee for the first day and $15 for each additional day up to 15 days at which time items will become property of the auction house and will be resold. Failure to abide by the pickup times may result in loss of bidding privileges.  Merchandise becomes the property of the bidder the moment the bidding closes on the lot.  Auction house is not responsible for theft, loss, or damages to merchandise, even while on property.
