                               RULES OF PIDGEON AUCTIONS

1.   ALL SALES FINAL.  NO RETURNS.  PLEASE VIEW ITEMS BEFORE BIDDING.

2.   WE DO NOT ALLOW “BIDDING IN”.  EVERYTHING GOES TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER UNLESS A RESERVE OPENING BID IS ANNOUNCED AND SUCH RESERVE HAS NOT BEEN MET.  OWNERS ARE NOT PERMITTED TO BID ON THEIR OWN ITEMS.  IN THE CASE OF AN ESTATE AUCTION, IF ITEMS ARE NOT SPECIFICALLY WILLED TO FAMILY MEMBERS, THEN FAMILY MAY BID ON ITEMS THEY
DESIRE TO CLEAR THE ESTATE.

3.   AS REQUESTED BY OUR CLIENTS, IN ORDER TO PROTECT THEIR PRIVACY, WE HAVE MADE IT A RULE THAT NO ONE IS PERMITTED TO MAKE LISTS OF ITEMS, PRICES, BUYERS, ETC. AT OUR AUCTIONS.  IF ANYONE IS FOUND DOING SO, THEY WILL BE ASKED TO LEAVE THE AUCTION.
(
THIS RULE DOES NOT APPLY TO CONSIGNORS/EXECUTORS/ADMINISTRATORS OR THEIR REPRESENTATIVES
REGARDING THEIR SPECIFIC ITEMS)
  

4.   ALL GOODS MUST BE PAID FOR DAY OF SALE WHETHER OR NOT ITEMS ARE REMOVED FROM SITE THAT DAY.

5.  THE AUCTIONEER SHALL HAVE THE SOLE RIGHT TO SETTLE ANY DISPUTES AT HIS DISCRETION.

6.  WE WILL ACCEPT TELEPHONE & ABSENTEE BIDS ONLY IF WE ARE PERMITTED TO RELEASE NAMES OF BUYERS TO THE AUDIENCE SO THEY CAN REST ASSURED THAT SUCH ITEMS ARE ACTUALLY SOLD & NOT “BID IN”.

7.  ONCE THE AUCTIONEER SAYS “SOLD”, THE ITEM BECOMES THE PROPERTY OF THE BUYER AND HE/SHE IMMEDIATELY BECOMES RESPONSIBLE FOR SAME.  THE BUYER IS THEREFORE OBLIGATED TO TAKE CARE OF HIS GOODS FROM THE INSTANT THEY ARE SOLD AND IF ANYTHING  SHOULD BECOME MISSING, HE/SHE IS STILL REQUIRED TO PAY FOR SAME.   


8.  WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO REFUSE A BID THAT IS INCONSISTENT WITH THE VALUE OF THE ITEM.
