Prospective buyers may view lots at PBMA’s auction location during the hours advertised.

7. Foundations and Experts:  Due to the lack of industry standards in the art and furniture industry, PBMA does not vet or endorse any foundation or expert. Bidders are responsible for conducting their own due diligence into all foundations and experts and are advised to bid accordingly.

8. Estimates:  Estimates are provided only as a guide for prospective buyers. PBMA makes no representations or warranties regarding the value or anticipated selling price of any Property.

9. Reserve Price:  Some lots offered are subject to a reserve.  A reserve is a confidential minimum price below which the lot will not be sold.  PBMA will act to protect the reserve by bidding through the auctioneer.  The auctioneer may open the bidding on any lot below the reserve by placing a bid on behalf of the Seller and may continue to bid on behalf of the Seller up to the amount of the reserve. 

10. Withdrawals:  PBMA reserves the right to withdraw any item from the auction for any reason and shall have no liability whatsoever for such withdrawal.  

11. Shipping/Pick-up/Storage:  PBMA highly recommends that bidders obtain shipping quotes prior to bidding.   If you would like to obtain a shipping quote prior to the auction, please contact PBMA by phone or email for a list of shippers, or contact your own shipper.  PBMA provides shipping lists only as a service to its clients and any such list should not be considered an endorsement of any shipping company.  Additionally, PBMA does not pack or ship items for insurance reasons.   Final arrangements for shipping, and all costs associated with shipping, are the responsibility of the buyer.  Any agreement for shipping is a contract between the buyer and the shipper; PBMA is not a party to any such contract and expressly disclaims any responsibility thereunder.  No items will be released for shipping until PBMA receives payment in full and all payments have cleared.  Thereafter, items may be picked up at PBMA’s exhibition facility Monday through Friday between 10:00 A.M. – 5:00 P.M. by the winning bidders or their shippers.  Please call PBMA the day before you intend to pick-up any item.  If a shipper is picking up an item, please send PBMA an e-mail confirming the name of the shipper and the property to be released into the shipper’s possession, and providing PBMA permission to release the property to your shipper. All winning lots must be picked up within thirty (30) business days following the close of the auction.  After this time, each lot will become subject to storage fees of not less than $5 per day.  After 180 days following the close of the auction, any lot which is not picked up will become the property of PBMA and may be disposed of by PBMA, in any manner it chooses, without recourse.

12. Rescission of Sale:  PBMA may, for any reason and in its sole discretion, rescind the sale.  Upon notice of PBMA’s election to rescind a sale, the buyer will promptly return the property to PBMA, at which time the buyer will be refunded the hammer price and the buyer’s premium paid to PBMA for the property.  This refund will constitute the buyer’s sole remedy against PBMA and/or the consignor in the case of a rescission of sale.

13. Entire Agreement: This Agreement sets forth the entire agreement between the Parties with respect to the subject matter referenced herein and shall supersede any and all prior agreements or understandings, whether written or oral, between the Parties, except as otherwise specified in this Agreement.
