ALL SALES ARE FINAL. The Purchaser acknowledges that all items are sold “as is" and absolutely NO refunds will be given for any reason. We strongly encourage our customers to come and preview the items they are interested in before placing a bid. This allows them to inspect the product and ensure that it meets their expectations.
DO NOT BID IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO PICK UP YOUR ITEMS. All items purchased must be picked-up during the scheduled pick-up times and location. Absolutely NO refunds or chargebacks will be granted due to failure to pick-up purchased items at the designated times and location. Purchased items in which the Purchaser fails to pick-up will be considered abandoned by Purchaser and the further disposition of such purchased items will be at the sole discretion of Placer Auctions.
All items are sold “As-Is Where-Is” Placer Auctions will do its best to list any damage, but the absence of description of condition must not be taken to imply the lot is in perfect condition. What you see in the pictures of each lot is what you will receive at pick-up. Most of the items Placer Auctions sells are antique, vintage, or used. Bidders should expect signs of wear consistent with age. Items will not be disassembled, moved, or prepped for pick-up in any way. Please come with adequate tools & assistance for moving heavy or complex items. Please understand that photos are part of the description and bidders should review them carefully.
BUYER’S PREMIUM & SALES TAX
All winning bids will include an additional buyer's premium of 15% of the winning bid amount. In addition, CA sales tax of 8.75% will be added to all invoices. Resellers sales tax exemptions will be granted so long as the required documents are received prior to the end of the most recent auction.
REGISTRATION AND PLACING A BID
Each prospective bidder must first register as a Placer Auctions user to place a bid on an item. Placing a bid on an item constitutes a binding and enforceable contract between the bidder and Placer Auctions. By participating in the auction, buyers expressly agree to honor their bids and complete the sale in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth herein. Failure to do so may result in legal action being taken to enforce the agreement. Buyers are strongly advised to carefully review the item description and any additional information provided prior to submitting a bid, and to contact Placer Auctions with any questions or concerns. Once a bid is submitted, it cannot be retracted, revoked, or cancelled.
AUCTION ENDING AND EXTENSIONS
Placer Auctions utilizes a staggered auction closing on all items listed. This means that each item will close 30-60 seconds before the next item. An item’s closing time may be extended if a bid is placed within 30 seconds from the time of its closing. The length of the extension will be between 15-120 seconds from the point at which the bid was made. Each time a bid is placed within this “extension period," all unsold auction lots will automatically extend an additional 15-120 seconds. This is designed and utilized to prevent what is commonly known as "sniping," which is the act of attempting to "steal" an item within the closing seconds of an auction.
All winning bids will include a 15% buyer's premium. After each auction has ended, the Purchaser's card on file will be immediately charged. An invoice will also be sent via email. Accepted forms of payment include Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express.
Invoices are generated after the auction ends. If the Purchaser does not receive an invoice via email, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, and another invoice will be sent. Invoices should be marked paid provided the card you have on file goes through.
All winning bidders must pick up their items during the scheduled "Pick-up Hours." At that time, the winning bidder must present an invoice, either printed or electronically, that shows the items have been paid in full. A valid driver’s license is also required. If unable to make the scheduled pickup day/time, it is the bidder's responsibility to send someone on their behalf with a valid driver's license and invoice showing a paid in full status. Any items that are not picked up at the scheduled time, will be considered abandoned, and are subject to relisting without refund at the discretion of Placer Auctions. Items will not be disassembled, moved, or prepped for pick-up in any way. Please come with adequate tools & assistance for moving & packing heavy or complex items.
Placer Auctions does not handle shipping. We have partnered with AIM Mail Center to offer shipping to our customers. Upon request from the buyer, we will turn over your items and contact information to our shipping partner. They will then contact you and coordinate the packing & shipment of your items. We do not pack, label, insure, or track any items, and will not take responsibility for any loss, damage, or theft once items leave our facility. The shipping contract is between you (the buyer) and the shipping provider. Please reach out via email and provide your phone number as well as a list of items you need shipped. Your order will not be processed until we receive an email requesting shipping.

If a bidder’s credit card on file is declined, or a bidder does not show up to pick up, bidding privileges may be revoked. In addition, Placer auctions reserves the right to revoke bidding privileges at any time, if bidder is found to be in violation of these Terms and Condition. Bidding privileges may be restored at the discretion of Placer Auctions
TAX EXEMPT STATUS
Any bidder that claims tax exempt status, must provide the appropriate documentation PRIOR to placing your first bid, during the registration process. A copy of the current state’s tax-exempt form must be provided BEFORE placing any bids. Failure to do so will result in the bidder being charged sales tax on any items won, prior to Placer Auctions receiving the required documentation.

Any issues or controversy that arises from, and/or relating to these Terms and Conditions, shall be settled via arbitration in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association.
