Conditions of Sale
All property is sold "AS IS", and neither O'Gallerie nor the Consignor makes any representation or warranty, expressed or implied, as to the merchantability, fitness, or condition of the property or as to the correctness of description, genuineness, attribution, provenance or period of the property. By bidding, you agree to these Conditions of Sale.
A Premium of Eighteen Percent (15% Buyer's Premium + 3% ArtFact Fee) of the successful bid price will be added to the bid prices and is payable by the buyer as part of the total purchase price.
On the fall of the Auctioneer's hammer, title to the offered lot or article passes to the highest bidder who assumes full risk and responsibility thereof. The Auctioneer has sole discretion in the acceptance of bids and in the determination of the highest bidder.
All State and Federal laws will be observed regarding the sale of handguns. If you are not a resident of Oregon, you must have a current Federal Firearms License to take delivery of firearms, or have an FFL holder in your state take delivery of firearms for you. Firearms purchases are subject to a $12 background check fee.
All purchases are to be paid for either by cash, check, cashier's check, bank wire, VISA, Mastercard or Discover, during or immediately after each Auction. Credit card information is requested as part of the registration process. If payment arrangements are not made within one week following the auction, your credit card may be charged. O'Gallerie reserves the option to hold purchases until checks clear the bank, or until authorization is obtained on credit cards or Cashier's Checks.
No lot may be transferred to another buyer.
Removal of purchases, including packing & shipping arrangements if needed, is the sole responsibility of the buyer. Purchases may be removed during or at the conclusion of each auction session beginning at 7 P.M. (except pianos, chandeliers, large carpets, or clocks), but not during the days of the Auctions or Preview Hours. Additional checkout times are three business days following the Auctions, at which time all purchases are to be paid for and removed. Because of lack of storage space, purchases not picked up within the three business days following the Auction may be moved to a public warehouse at the purchaser's account, risk and responsibility. Additionally, O'Gallerie has the option to resell the property either privately or at auction without any requirement for notice or advertisement. The purchaser will be liable for any deficiency, all costs, including handling, storage fees and insurance, our commission(s) at regular rates or incidental damages.
If O'Gallerie should be prevented by fire, theft or any reason whatsoever from delivering any property to the purchaser, our liability shall be limited to the sum actually paid by the purchaser.
All lots in the Catalog may be subject to a reserve (a confidential minimum price below which the lot will not ordinarily be sold). We as the Agent for Consignor may place bids during the auction if and when the highest outstanding bid at any time during the sale is below the reserve which may have been established on the lot being offered. Consignors are not allowed to bid on their own property.
No reference to imperfections is made in the catalog descriptions or verbally by the Auctioneers. Since all sales are final and O'Gallerie makes no refunds, please verify our descriptions and carefully view the property at a preview before you bid. No employee of O'Gallerie is authorized to make on our behalf, or that of the Consignor, any representation or warranty, oral or written with respect to any property.
O'Gallerie reserves the right to withdraw any property at any time before actual sale, or reject a bid from any bidder.
As stated in our Terms & Conditions, condition information is not included in our lot descriptions. If you are unable to personally inspect the property, it is your responsibility as a prospective buyer to inquire as to the condition of a specific lot before bidding. Condition information can normally be made available, upon request, within one business day. Any condition information made available is done so as a courtesy. It is only an opinion and should not be considered to be a statement of fact. O’Gallerie accepts no responsibility for any error or omission.
Although shipping arrangements are the sole responsibility of the buyer, O'Gallerie offers packing & shipping services via UPS only, to destinations within the U. S. only, for a nominal fee. An outside shipping company would need to be used for items that are either too large to be sent via UPS or that need to reach destinations outside the U. S. We strongly encourage prospective buyers to obtain shipping quotes prior to bidding. For more information, please refer to our Terms & Conditions.
We accept cash, checks, cashier’s checks, money orders, Visa, Mastercard & Discover. Checks, cashier’s checks and money orders are subject to a holding period for collection.
There is no sales tax in Oregon.
Your Bid is a Contract
Please bid only if you will honor any purchases that you make. All State and Federal laws will be observed regarding the sale of firearms. Those who are outside the United States are not eligible to purchase firearms. We strongly encourage prospective bidders to familiarize themselves with the firearms laws in their home state prior to bidding. Since we are a licensed firearms dealer in Oregon, Oregon residents can take delivery of firearms purchases in person without a Federal Firearms License (FFL). Oregon residents who do not have a current FFL are subject to a $12 fee for a required background check. Those who are not residents of Oregon and do not have an FFL will likely need to have an FFL holder in their state take delivery of firearms purchases on their behalf. In addition to the required background check fee, FFL holders normally charge a fee for providing this service. For a searchable database of nationwide FFL holders, please visit www.auctionarms.com/help/fflnetwork.cfm. In many cases, firearms can only be shipped to Federal Firearms License holders.
