By bidding you are agreeing to purchase the given lot for the hammer price plus a 15% Buyer's Premium for in-house bidding. Live online bidding may carry a higher buyers' premium. We require all absentee or phone bids to be received NO LATER THAN 9:00 AM the morning of a sale. Previewing a sale in person is recommended as all items are sold AS IS, WHERE IS. Any condition report written or verbal is a statement of our opinion and makes no warranty of age, quality, merchantability or authorship. Please preview before hand and, if you are not completely satisfied as to an item's authenticity or origins, please do not bid on that lot. Previewing will give you the opportunity to examine the lots prior to sale and to determine your level of interest in the items offered. We cannot warranty any timepieces or vintage electronics. Due to the delicate nature of their workings, shipping may change their condition.

ABSENTEE BIDS
We offer Absentee and Phone ids as a convenience to perspective buyers. We do NOT start your bid at the top amount. If no bid is offered from the audience, the auctioneer will generally start your absentee bid at 50% of the stated amount. In the event we receive two (2) identical bids, the first bid received will take precedence over the second left bid. While we take every reasonable precaution, we are not responsible for missed or lost bids.

PHONE BIDS
As a convenience to our buyers, we offer limited phone lines for bidding, at our discretion, on a first-come/first-served basis. Due to staff constraints, it is our policy to start phone bids at $500. If you wish to bid on an item for less than that amount, please leave an absentee bid. We encourage phone bidders to leave a backup bid in the event our staff cannot reach you, especially in the case of international bidders. While we make every reasonable effort to execute phone bids, we are not responsible in the event of a missed bid, lost or dropped calls, wrong numbers, or busy signals. We may require a credit card or references for security purposes to secure any absentee bids.

PAYMENT AND SHIPPING
ALL ITEMS must be paid for within one (1) week of the auction. All items must be paid for before they are removed from our facilty. Any items left longer than 14 days without prior approval may be subject to storage fees. We do not ship in-house, but prefer to use Pack and Send Plus of Waterbury, VT (802-560-4111, ship@packandsendplus.com). We appreciate your patronage and are happy to answer any additional questions at 802-878-2625 or info@merrillsauction.com.
