Auction Terms & Conditions Bids Left On Live Auction websites ARE NOT The Same As Bids Left With The Auction House Directly. They Are Executed From A Proxy Computer Terminal In The Room Against Other Internet Bidders. Other Competitive Bids Include Bidders On The Telephone, In The Room, And Absentee Bids With The Auctioneer. In Some Cases Tie Bids May Occur Between On-line Absentee Bids And Other Bidders. Tie Bids Are Broken By The Order In Which The Auctioneer Accepts The Bids NOT When The Bids Were Entered With the webcast service. For Example, If There Is A Tie Bid With A Live Present Bidder And A Proxibid Live Bidder, Preference Will Be Give To The Live Bidder Present. In All Cases The Auctioneer Has Final Discretion Over Which Bids To Accept. We Are Not Responsible For Inadvertent Bids, Or Problems Arising Due To Internet Connections, Incorrect Computer Settings Or Other Website Related Problems Beyond Our Control.
Everything in our Auctions is SOLD AS IS, RETURNS WILL NO LONGER BE ACCEPTED, and WITH NO EXCEPTIONS! All of our descriptions are written as accurately as possible, with all sizes approximate, and all apparent faults noted. Because of the volume of material we place in each of our sales, some descriptions may contain erroneous information or minor faults could be missed. It would be in your best interest as a serious buyer, for yourself or a reliable representative come to our Gallery to Pre-view the items in person, or at the very least, call us during pre-view hours so one of our representatives can look at the item while you ask specific questions.
On occasion when taking bids on more than one internet site, a lot may close on one site as a bid is coming in on another. The auctioneer always reserves the right to reopen any lot if an incoming bid is missed as long as the next lot has not opened. We advise all internet bidders to wait until the next lot starts to confirm their winning bid. This does not happen often but internet bidding can be difficult with internet slow downs and freezing issues.
Please be Aware That You Are Bidding on the Framed Item and Not the Frame Itself. We Are Not Responsible For Any Damage to the Frames Themselves, and No Refunds Will Be Given Due to the Damage Frames. Weiss Auctions Makes a Great Effort to Protect Framed Pieces While in Our Care and During the Shipping Process. Contact us if you wish to have the frame removed prior to shipping which may help to reduce the cost.
You, the customers, are the experts. While our staff has a wide range of knowledge in the collectibles and memorabilia field, we cannot possibly have expertise in every specific category of collectible. PLEASE BE COMFORTABLE WITH THE ITEMS YOU ARE BIDDING ON, IF YOU HAVE ANY DOUBTS, WE PREFER THAT YOU DO NOT BID! This is not because we don't value your business, but more the fact that WE WANT HAPPY CUSTOMERS!
