RIGHTS & RESPONSIBILITIES
Bidding in our auctions constitutes an agreement to pay for all lots for which you are the winning bidder. Unless otherwise stated, all items are sold without reserve. Each lot in the auction is given a low and high estimate representing the range which, in the opinion of Woody Auction, is a conservative auction evaluation. Actual prices realized for items can fall below or above this range. An estimate of the selling price should not be relied upon as a statement that this is the price at which the item will sell or its value for any other purpose.
If identical absentee bids are left for an item, the first bid received has precedence. Bids placed on LiveAuctioneers are not executed until the item is offered in the live auction and the order in which they are received is not a factor.
Woody Auction sells 80-110 lots per hour.
Woody Auction reserves the right to withdraw any property before the completion of the sale and will have no liability for doing so.
We reserve the right to accept or decline any bid. Bids must be for an entire lot and each lot constitutes a separate sale. All bids are per lot unless otherwise announced at a live sale by the AUCTIONEER. Live auction lots will be sold in their numbered sequence unless the AUCTIONEER directs otherwise. For live auctions, the AUCTIONEER will have final discretion if any dispute should arise between bidders. The AUCTIONEER will determine the successful bidder, cancel the sale, or re-offer and resell the lot or lots in dispute. Woody Auction will have final discretion to resolve any disputes arising after the sale and in online auctions. If any dispute arises our sale record is conclusive.
Subject to fulfillment of all the conditions set forth herein, on the fall of the AUCTIONEER's hammer, title to the offered lot will pass to the highest bidder acknowledged by the AUCTIONEER, and such bidder thereupon (a) assumes full risk and responsibility (including without limitation, liability for or damage to frames or glass covering prints, paintings, photos, or other works), and (b) will immediately pay the full purchase price.
The terms and conditions of sale herein described shall be enforced in accordance with, and governed by the laws of the State of Kansas. If any part of the Terms and Conditions is found by any court to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, that part shall be discounted and the rest of the conditions shall continue to be valid to the fullest extent of the law.
We reserve the right to amend our terms and conditions at any time without notice.
