PACKING AND SHIPPING

Once full payment for the purchased item has been received, TSC will notify buyer of the approximate packing/crating and domestic shipping charges for all lots, typically within three business days of sale.  Once approved by Buyer, the item(s) will be professionally packed/crated.  Once packing and shipping costs are established, Buyer shall pay all charges prior to their release.  TSC will make arrangements to tender small shipments to an approved carrier, typically The UPS Store.  Larger items requiring crating will be crated and prepared for transport and held for pick up at the location of the crating company by an approved carrier choice of the buyer.  Once tendered for transportation to either The UPS Store or the buyer’s designated carrier, TSC shall have no liability whatsoever for any damages or losses resulting from the transportation of any said item(s) and all responsibilities are between The UPS Store and the buyer or the approved carrier and the buyer. 

Once packing/crating charges have been paid for all International shipments, the items will be held at the packing/crating facility and are the full responsibility of the buyer to arrange transportation.  In addition, all  costs and charges associated with import/export customs,  duties, and taxes for said items are the complete responsibility of the Buyer. An invoice stating the actual purchase price will accompany all international purchases.  For additional information or pre-auction estimates, contact us via email at michael@thescanlancollection or via phone at 510.755.3858.

Terms & Conditions

The basic terms of this auction are quite simple.  I list items from my personal collection that have been acquired over the past 50 years, provide them with the best and most accurate description I can, and then provide an auction estimate based on similar items of the same quality previously sold at other auctions.  I then list a minimum bid amount for each piece and if you wish, bid accordingly.  If you are the winning bidder, you will be sent an invoice for all items purchased, including a buyers premium , and the item(s) will be professionally packed or crated and either shipped or made available for pick up.

 

Now, nothing is ever quite as simple as it seems, so below are the full set of terms and the entire agreement.
