Many lots are being sold "times" the quantity. Please pay attention when bidding as you are responsible for your bids. Additionally, you are responsible to count your items BEFORE leaving the store at pickup. Once you have loaded and left, there will not be any refunds for mis-counted items.
Auction Pick Up and Removal: Pickup Location(s) are noted on the auction and will also be on your invoice (which will be emailed upon completion of the auction). We utilize load-out BY APPOINTMENT. A link to SignUp Genius will be on your email.
IMPORTANT! Many of our On-Site Auction Locations are transferring to new owners the next day so pick-up times are STRONGLY ENFORCED! Any items left after the specified load-out time will be considered forfeited unless alternate pick up or shipping arrangements are made IN ADVANCE OF THE AUCTION CLOSING.
Loadout: We do not provide loading assistance for free! Before bidding be sure to bring plenty of help at the designated pick-up time and location to remove your items. You are responsible to furnish ALL labor, carts/dollies and packaging materials. If you are unable to secure the labor or proper equipment for removal at the noted time and location then PLEASE-DO NOT BID!!!
Please respect our guidelines and our staff’s time.
STAGGERED/DYNAMIC CLOSING: The lots in this auction will close in groups of 10 lots beginning at the time indicated ... and with each additional group of 10 lots closing in 2 minute intervals. Any bid placed on an item within 2 minutes of the auction ending will automatically extend the auction for 2 minutes ON THAT ITEM. Example: If an auction scheduled to end at 6:00 pm receives a bid at 5:59 pm, the close time of the auction automatically extends to 6:02 pm. The auto-extend feature remains active on a per-item basis until no further bids are received within the 2 minute time frame.
The following fees WILL be charged when necessary:
*The buyer will be charged a $25 non-removal fee for any lot or partial lot left behind, as well as all disposal costs.
*The buyer will be charged $25 per lot for items we have to help remove due to buyer’s lack of preparedness.
*The buyer will be charged $50/hour if you require our staff to stay past the designated ending time.
*Repeated tardiness and/or failure to remove items will result in revocation of bidding privileges on ALL of our bidding platforms.
*BUYERS PREMIUM: A Buyer’s premium will be charged on each purchase. A buyer’s premium, an advertised percentage of the high bid or flat fee added to the high bid, will be added to the high bid and become part of the purchase amount at settlement. Buyer agrees to these provisions and will pay the applicable buyer’s premium.
*SALES TAX: Sales tax will be charged on all inventory. If you are tax exempt in Kansas, please send copy of your tax exemption certificate to [email protected] before bidding.
SHIPPING: Shipping is available, please contact Theurer in advance to arrange shipping.
*Shipping: In the event you would like your small items shipped … please, we are not AMAZON! We do NOT provide FREE shipping.
If you do require shipping, we WILL combine lots for shipping to minimize costs unless advised otherwise. Once the items are packed, you will receive an email with the shipping quote. You must confirm that cost and then process your payment. Once it is paid in full, your items will be shipped with tracking information sent to you. We only ship to the address on file.
Note: Oversize or extremely delicate items may be taken to the local UPS store for shipment and packaging.
ALL OF OUR ONLINE AUCTIONS FEATURE BOTH A MAX BID OPTION AS WELL AS A SOFT CLOSE.
"STAGGERED ENDING" Lots will begin closing at the designated time at a set rate. Please watch the countdown timer on each lot.
“A MAX BID” may be placed on any item and the computer will bid on your behalf, thus eliminating the need to “babysit” your bids. This option is highly recommended so you do not miss out on the item you are bidding on for any reason.
“THE SOFT CLOSE” feature which means any bid received in the final minutes of the auction will auto extend bidding on that particular item or lot by 2 minutes thus allowing a backup bidder the opportunity to raise their bid. In the event you do not use the MAX BID feature and you are out bid you will be notified via e-mail or text that you have been outbid and will have the opportunity to raise your bid.
PAYMENT: Buyer specifically waives the right to dispute or deny payment for any purchases made with a credit card. The credit card on file will be charged for your total purchases including any buyer’s premium, or stated additional fees, upon conclusion of the Auction. All denied transactions due to expiration date, insufficient funds, and/or other reasons shall be subject to a $20 re-processing fee. You can update your credit card under "PROFILE" on the website dashboard. Credit card chargebacks are not allowed.
A paid invoice will be sent to your registered e-mail address within 2 hours following the conclusion of the auction. If you do not receive an invoice, please check the dashboard under "PROFILE"-"INVOICES" You as the buyer are responsible for keeping your credit card on file and up to date.
