STORAGE AND SHIPPING INFORMATION
As the Buyer, you are responsible for the pick-up or shipment of the property you have purchased.
As a courtesy, the Seller has made arrangements with a variety of third party shippers to provide shipping quotes for Buyers. Please note that shipping remains the responsibility of the Buyer, and we highly recommend getting quotes during any preview period for large, fragile or heavy items so you can consider the shipping costs before bidding. As set forth more fully in the Terms of Sale, under no circumstances will the Seller or Bidsquare be held responsible for items entrusted to a third party shipper.
Shipping small items by common carrier (UPS, FedEx, DHL or USPS): Each of the Sellers has engaged shippers to pick up several times a week. Once the Seller receives your payment and the completed shipping form authorizing the release of your property to the shipper, the Seller will add your lot(s) to the list for the next pick up. Shipping quotes will be included in the invoice.
Shipping larger items by freight (for example: furniture, bulky or odd shaped items): For items that exceed allowable dimensions or weight restrictions of UPS, Fed Ex and similar carriers, the Seller may provide assistance in arranging for delivery by freight. Please keep in mind that delivery of these types of items can be an expensive proposition, so you should consider this before bidding. Please remember that it is your responsibility to pay for all deliveries.
Pick up: Please check the Seller’s pick up policies and be sure to bring your own packing materials.
Removal of Property:. Regardless of whether you arrange to have your property shipped or picked up, all property must be paid for and removed from the Seller within 14 days of the auction. Storage fees are charged beginning on day 15. For more details see below and see our Terms of Sale. Neither the Seller nor Bidsquare is responsible for any damage or loss of property purchased but not removed from the Seller within 14 days of the auction. Starting on day 15 following the acution, the Seller may, at its sole discretion, remove the purchased Property to public storage at the Buyer’s risk and expense. All associated charges will be added to the total or subsequent invoice and must be paid in full before the Property will be released.
Property purchased and left at the Seller for 90 days or longer will be sold or donated for you, at the Seller’s sole discretion.
Frequently Asked Questions
May I use one check to pay for the invoice and shipping charges?
Yes. You will receive a combined invoice for the item that includes shipping charges.
Will I be charged tax for picking up the item at the Seller?
An 8.875% New York sales tax will be added to your invoice if you pick up your property from the Seller. This tax will be waived if you have a resale number. You must complete the proper documentation in order to avoid the sales tax charge.
Do I need to pay for insurance coverage for the items in shipment?
We highly recommend insuring your items for their full value during shipping. If you choose to waive the insurance coverage, we require a signed waiver from you stating that you accept full liability for any damage that may occur in shipment.
What happens if my item is damaged during shipment?
It is a rare occurrence, but if your item arrives damaged, you must keep all packaging materials. Notify the Seller immediately. Take photographs of the damage to the box as well as the item. A representative from the shipping company will make an appointment to come and inspect the damage and begin the claim process.
