BARNES AUCTIONS – CONDITIONS OF SALE Welcome to Barnes Auctions. We are delighted that you wish to take part in our auction. We now offer you the opportunity to bid live online or leave an advance commission bid online. You are also still welcome to participate by traditional telephone bid or by contacting Barnes Auctuions direct to leave a commission bid. You can contact Barnes Auctions by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling us on 0208 878 9223. CATALOGUE DESCRIPTION Our sale catalogue contains a brief description of each item. This description is for guidance only - some items are of an age or nature that means they may not be in perfect condition. Prospective Buyers should take the opportunity where possible to attend our viewing to examine items in person or to contact us prior to the sale with any questions about an item. Barnes Auctions does not take any responsibility for the authenticity, origin or estimated price of any item. All items are offered for sale as viewed and without any warranty or claim as to its suitability or fitness for its apparent purpose, so prospective Buyers should use their own judgement. All items are sold as seen. All electrical items are sold on the express condition that the Buyer ensures they are examined by a competent electrician before connecting them to any source of electricity. BIDDING You can bid in five different ways: in person in the sale room, by advance absentee commission bid left direct with Barnes Auctions, by live telephone bid, by advance absentee commission bid submitted online or by bidding live online. Once registered to bid, you are allocated a unique bidding number for the sale. To place an absentee commission bid or to book a telephone bid, please contact Barnes Auctions by email at email@example.com or by telephone on 0208 878 9223 no later than 8pm on the day before the sale. ONLINE REGISTRATION In completing the online bidder registration and providing your credit card details, you authorise Barnes Auctions to charge the credit card given in part or full payment, including all fees, for items successfully purchased in the auction via online live or commission bidding, and you confirm that you are authorised to provide these credit card details to Barnes Auctions. The Auctioneer has absolute discretion as to the increments/amounts by which bidding increases. The highest bidder as determined by the Auctioneer is the Buyer. The Auctioneer has absolute discretion to settle any disputes that may arise and to refuse bids or to advance the bidding as seen fit. His decision is final. PAYMENT The Buyer’s Premium is the commission paid to the auctioneer by the Buyer over and above the final sale price, (the hammer price), of each item. Our Buyer’s Premium is 15% of the final sale price for bids and settlement made in person in the sale room on the day of sale where the item is collected on the same day, and 18% for all commission, telephone and online bids, or where the item is not collected on the day of the sale (the 3% surcharge covers the additional costs incurred). Buyers are welcome to pay by major debit or credit card, American Express charge card, by cash in UK Sterling (when the Buyer collects in person), by UK cheque accompanied by a cheque guarantee card sufficient to cover the total cost of purchase(s) or by electronic bank transfer. Please note that Barnes Auctions levies a 3% card surcharge for payment by credit card / American Express, to cover third party costs. There is no card surcharge for debit card payment. Please note - once the Auctioneer has determined your bid to be the successful bid, a legal contract is created and you are obliged to pay for the item. As the Buyer, you only take ownership of the item once full payment is made. (In the case of cheque payment, this is not until the cheque has cleared even if you have already collected the item). We reserve the right to hold on to items paid for by cheque until the cheque has cleared. Full payment for items bought must be received by Barnes Auctions within seven days of the close of the auction. If a Buyer fails to pay for an item within seven days of the sale, the Auctioneer reserves the right to cancel the sale and re-sell the item(s) won. The Auctioneer can also proceed against the Buyer for breach of contract. For online purchases, Barnes Auctions will automatically take payment from the card registered online if payment has not been received within seven days. All sales are final and no refunds are given. COLLECTION OF ITEMS AND SHIPPING Unless by prior arrangement with Barnes Auctions, Buyers must collect items within seven days of the close of the auction. It is the Buyer’s responsibility to arrange for collection of any item(s) purchased. Please note – collection is by appointment only. Buyers must contact Barnes Auctions in advance of collecting items as the address for collection is not the same as the venue address of the auction. Please note that Barnes Auctions only arrange shipping of smaller items that can be handled by standard courier. We do not arrange shipping of larger items such as furniture. If placing a bid for an item that will require shipping, prospective Buyers must contact Barnes Auctions in advance of bidding to determine the cost of packing & shipping. This cost will be at the Buyer’s expense. SELLING WITH BARNES AUCTIONS If a Seller enters an item for sale without a reserve price, our commission is 20% of the selling price or £5 (£10 for furniture items), whichever is the greater. The Seller then receives the balance by cheque or bank transfer, normally within 14 days of the auction. Please note that Barnes Auctions requires settlement in full from the Buyer before settling with the Seller. If the Seller requests a reserve price, we charge a £5 advance listing deposit per item (£10 for furniture items). If the Seller’s item sells, the Seller then receives the balance as above plus the deposit is returned. Barnes Auctions retains the deposit if the item does not sell. If an item doesn't sell, the Seller must collect the item from Barnes Auctions within seven days of notification from Barnes Auctions that the item has not sold. Unless by prior agreement, (for example we may offer to sell the item(s) at a future sale), items not collected within this time will be disposed of and Barnes Auctions will retain all proceeds. Please note that goods entered into our sales are done so at the Seller’s own risk and that the seller accepts that Barnes Auctions are not liable for any damage or loss to items while in our possession. Barnes Auctions reserves the right to levy a £10 fee for the collection and transportation of any item of furniture to our auction room. If applied, the Seller will be advised of this on entering your items for sale.
