PACKING/SHIPPING • It is the bidder’s responsibility to take shipping, handling, and insurance costs into consideration when bidding on items. • BIDDERS PRESENT AND TAKING ITEMS AFTER AUCTION – Since item liability transfers upon a successful bid, items paid for must be packed, transported and/or removed by the buyer at his/her own risk after the close of the sale. We recommend that you arrange insurance for your items immediately upon becoming the highest bidder. If any employee or agent of MORPHY’S shall pack or transport the merchandise, it is fully at the risk and responsibility and expense of the buyer. MORPHY’S shall not be held liable for any loss or damage that may be caused by the said agent or employee. • ITEMS NOT PICKED UP THE DAY OF THE SALE – Packaging, shipping, and insurance on all items that MORPHY’S accepts for shipment to locations that can accept shipments will be made available as an added courtesy and at an additional cost. We recommend that you arrange insurance for your items immediately upon becoming the highest bidder. All applicable charges will be applied to the invoice. Shipping will be based on actual costs via FedEx, USPS, or other carriers required based upon the contents of the shipment. Packaging and insurance will vary in cost depending on the items on each invoice. All packages will be shipped with insurance. Standard items packed internally by MORPHY’s will ship seven to fourteen (7-14) business days after payment is received. Oversize and breakable items, which MORPHY’s will indicate on the invoice, will ship based upon the buyer’s arrangement with a 3rd party shipper. MORPHY’s cannot combine standard item shipments with oversize and breakable item shipments. Again, if any employee or agent of MORPHY’S shall pack or transport the merchandise, it is fully at the risk and responsibility and expense of the buyer. MORPHY’S shall not be held liable for any loss or damage that may be caused by the said agent or employee. • SHIPPING TERMS - MORPHY’S will ship items to the buyer at the listed address via FedEx or other carriers, FOB Denver, Pennsylvania or FOB Las Vegas, NV or FOB other auction locations. Any risk of loss or damage to the item(s) during transit via FedEx, or any other carrier, in excess of the insurance provided by or purchased from MORPHY’S, is at the risk of the buyer. Any additional insurance coverage should be purchased by the buyer through the carrier. Buyer releases MORPHY’s from any and all claims for loss or damage to any item during transit and agrees to pay all costs of defense, including attorney’s fees, for any claims brought against MORPHY’S for loss or damage occurring during transit. • INSURANCE - Shipping insurance is automatically added, which you can decline by contacting us and providing a signed waiver of insurance form. Insurance for all 3rd party shipments must be arranged through that carrier. Insurance provided or purchased through MORPHY’s applies only to shipments to the United States and Canada. Buyers must purchase their own insurance for shipments to other countries. • INTERNATIONAL SHIPMENTS – MORPHY’S has the capability to ship to international bidders. By law, MORPHY’S cannot, and will not, declare lesser values for any international purchases and all shipments will include the invoice with purchase totals including the buyer’s premium and shipping cost. All international bidders are responsible for knowing their country’s laws on importing items and for paying all customs and duties on the items. • 3RD PARTY SHIPPING OF OVERSIZE ITEMS –Buyers will need to either pick up the items personally or arrange a 3rd party shipping service for oversize items. As a general guideline, the following will indicate which packages apply, as they are of a certain weight, length, or dimensional size. o Dimensional size is length (the longest measurement) + (height x 2) + (width x 2). For example a 36” x 36” x 12” package = 36 + (36 x2) + (12 x 2) = 132” o USA home shipments must be <70 lbs. and <108” length and <165” dimensional size o USA business shipments must be <150 lbs. and <108” length and <165” dimensional size o International shipments must be <150 lbs. and <108” length and <130” dimensional size o There may be certain shipments that meet these requirements that will still require 3rd party shipping, and we will communicate the reason in those cases. • 3RD PARTY SHIPPING OF BREAKABLE, DELICATE, FRAGILE ITEMS - MORPHY’S reserves the right to choose items and orders that it will pack, ship, and/or insure directly using our shipping department. Those items that MORPHY’S will not ship will require that the buyer either pick up the items personally or arrange a 3rd party shipping service. Examples of items that may apply after determination by our shipping department include but are not limited to: items with neon of any type (working or non-working), all glass display cases of any size; coin-operated, arcade and vending items with fragile parts and/or glass; signs with parts or protrusions beyond the main body of the sign, oversized vases (guideline – larger than fit in a 20” x 20” x 40” box), high value lamps and glass of all sizes, high value artwork including but not limited to paintings, statuary, sculpture, figurines, dioramas, and other intricate items; and items subject to impact by moisture and known handling issues in the supply chain. Under no circumstances will MORPHY’S be responsible for shipping damage to picture frames of any kind. For any buyers who wish to arrange for their own shipping, MORPHY’S must be notified at least seven (7) days prior to arrival of the shipping company name, arrival date and time. Pickup must be scheduled to begin and end within our normal business hours (9am – 4pm weekdays). Buyers must arrange weekend pickups in advance with MORPHY’S staff, and additional charges may be necessary for overtime. All 3rd party shippers must arrive with a copy of the invoice, • STORAGE FEE – MORPHY’S will charge a storage fee of $50 per item per month for any items awaiting pickup for more than 30 days following the invoice date. Buyer authorizes the MORPHY’s to sell, at their standard commission and consignment contract terms, any goods not retrieved after a 90 day period in any manner deemed appropriate by MORPHY’s and the proceeds will be applied to any outstanding balance due from the buyer. • MORPHY AUCTIONS, LAS VEGAS LOCATION ONLY SPECIAL COURTESY – Items purchased at our Las Vegas location may qualify for free shipment on our freight truck to Denver, PA. o To be considered for shipping, all item invoices must be paid in full by day 7 after the auction, or they will not be shipped on the truck and shipping charges will then apply. o Items will leave Las Vegas approximately 14 days after the auction date. Upon arrival in Denver, PA the buyer must pick items up within 14 days, or a $50/week storage fee will apply. Buyers will be contacted by phone or email when items arrive in Denver, PA. It is the buyer’s responsibility to pick the items up here. For packages to qualify for courtesy shipping, at least one piece or all pieces together in a package, must have a dimensional size of more than 130 square inches. Dimensional size is length (the longest measurement) + (height x 2) + (width x 2). For example, a 36” x 36” x 12” package = 36 + (36 x2) + (12 x 2) = 132.
