    Payment is due immediately at the conclusion of the auction. A 15% Buyer’s Premium will be charged to all items, regardless of payment method. If you purchase an item for $100, your invoice will read $115.00. Sales taxes are added after the buyer’s premium has been applied.

    Purchases larger than $1,000 are required to be paid by cash or wire transfer. Wire transfers will be accepted from US banks only and must be completed by 10:00 AM the morning following the sale. No paperwork will be provided until the payment posts to our account.

    Sales Tax:
    Sales taxes will be assessed based on where the items are physically located. Bidders who wish to claim a sales tax exemption MUST provide a copy of their tax-exemption certificate PRIOR to placing any bids. Sales taxes will NOT be credited back should the bidder fail to pre-register their exemption.

    Pick-Up / Shipping:
    Unless an item is marked as eligible for shipping, you must make your own arrangements to remove items, including bringing packing or wrapping materials and providing your own tools and labor. The Auction Firm will NOT assist in the removal process in any way. Plan your time, materials, and labor accordingly. Some items will require disassembly.

    All buyers must make an appointment for pickup, whether the auction is onsite at a client location, or at the Auctioneer’s facility. Failure to secure an appointment by 9:00 am on the day of pickup will be considered an abandonment.

    Precious Metals, Coins, Jewelry:

    Due to increasing incidents of fraud and theft, these items will not be shipped unless payment is first received via wire transfer or other certified funds. Credit card payments will not be accepted for purchases requiring shipping.

    Shipping and Handling Costs:

    In many cases, items are eligible for shipping. Each individual lot will have a notation if that item is eligible. If items are to be shipped, you must pay the auction invoice before we process shipping. You will receive an invoice from Shipping Saint when the item is ready to go out. Once that shipping invoice is paid, we will complete your shipment and send you tracking information.

    Shipping costs are based on the size, shape, and weight of the object, as well as any additional packaging necessary to protect fragile items. If the purchase price was over $100, there will be additional fees for insurance.  To reduce costs, we will make every effort to combine items for shipping.

    On-Line Auctions:
    Neither the Auctioneer nor the Seller shall be responsible for any failure of any electronic or internet systems to accept or register a bid. Registered bidders must create a password that prevents others from using their account. Bidders are responsible for ALL bids placed under their name and password. This is a Public Auction and as such, all qualified bidders may bid, including Schur Success owners, family members and employees.

    Online auctions use a “Dynamic” ending process. If a bid is received in the last few minutes before the scheduled closing of an item, the timer on that item will extend, and will continue to extend each time a bid is received. Once the bidding stops, and the timer runs out, that item will be eligible to close. In some cases, items are “linked”, keeping one item open for bidding when a different item in the auction has been extended due to active bidding.

    It is the Bidder's responsibility to determine condition, age, genuineness, value or any other determinative factor of all items. Auctioneer may attempt to describe the merchandise in advertising, on the internet and at the auction but makes no representations. In no event shall Auctioneer be held responsible for having made or implied any warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose. Auctioneer does not guarantee any appraisals, gradings or certifications. If you have any questions about the merchandise, ASK THEM BEFORE BIDDING. Bidders shall be the sole judges of value. It is Bidder's responsibility to determine if any item is legal where they live.

    By placing a bid, Bidder acknowledges that her or she has inspected the items to his or her satisfaction or chooses to not examine them at his or her sole risk. Even though an item may display as "sold" on the internet, no sales are final until they are certified by the Auctioneer and the bidder receives an invoice. Auctioneer reserves the right to cancel any or all sales and resell the items in whatever manner he or she chooses.

    Bidding increments are automatically adjusted based on the chart provided for each auction and are subject to change at the sole discretion of Schur Success.

    Bids cannot and will not be removed or altered, unless in the opinion of the auctioneer, the bidder can establish that the bid was an obvious typographical error.

    The auctioneer reserves the right, at his sole discretion, to extend bidding on an individual items, groupings of items, or an entire auction. We reserve the right to withdraw or re-catalog any item.

    In the event of a software, system, or internet failure or delay, the Auctioneer reserves the right, at its sole discretion to extend or change closing dates and times, and to start, stop, restart, or cancel the auction.

    Maximum Bids:

    Bidders have the option to set a Maximum Bid. If you place a maximum bid, the system will automatically place bids on your behalf, at the current increment rate as set for each auction, each time someone places a bid against you. Your bid will be placed up to your maximum amount. You will be notified electronically when you have reached your maximum limit, or when you have been outbid.

    Bids will ONLY be placed on your behalf if your current bid was exceeded by another bidder.

    For example: You are bidding on an item that is currently at $200, and the bid increments are at $25.  If you set a maximum bid of $500, we will bid for you. If your current bid is $200, and someone places a bid at $225, we will automatically bid for you at $250. If there are no other bids placed, your bidding stops at $250. However, if more bids are placed, we will keep placing bids until we reach your maximum. If we place a bid at your maximum, and someone bids against you, no more bids will be paced on your behalf unless you increase your max.

    The Auctioneer holds a current and valid Federal Firearms License (FFL) and will comply with all laws federal, state, and local. Though we may sell firearms and accessories that are legal in some jurisdictions, they may not be legal in the bidder’s jurisdiction. It is the sole responsibility and obligation of the buyer to ensure the legality of a firearm and/or accessories in the jurisdiction of their residence. A thirty percent (30%) re-stocking fee will apply firearm and accessories purchased which subsequently cannot be possessed in the buyer’s jurisdiction and must be returned to our inventory.

    NO firearms sales will be made to California purchases, nor will firearms be shipped to an FFL in California.

    Firearms purchases must be paid in full prior to any background check being conducted, or the firearms being shipped.

    Firearms must be picked up in person at our office in Monument, Colorado, or can be shipped to an FFL dealer of the bidder’s choosing. Firearms shipped will incur shipping and handling charges as outlined above. Firearms and all associated shipping and handling costs must be paid prior to shipping. The buyer is solely responsible for complying with firearms laws in the jurisdiction where the firearms will be received. If a firearm is equipped with a high-capacity magazine, as defined by the state in which the firearm will be received, the magazine will be removed and not provided to the buyer. There will be no credit or refund for removing non-compliant magazines.

    The buyer must notify the recipient FFL dealer of the transaction before the Auctioneer makes any shipping arrangements. It is the responsibility of the Buyer to provide the Auctioneer with the necessary FFL information to facilitate the transfer.

    Buyers wishing to pick up firearms in our office must make an appointment. Buyers will be subject to a mandatory CBI background check for each auction, though multiple firearms bought at the same time will require only one such check. The buyer will pay the cost of the background check ($10.50) as required by CBI. Valid identification will be required. Purchases must be paid in full prior to a background check being conducted. If a buyer fails a background check, the Auctioneer shall retain the firearms less a thirty percent (30%) re-stocking fee. In some cases, the Auctioneer may opt to hold the firearm(s) for 30 days pending an appeal to CBI by the buyer, but only at his discretion. There is no guarantee that the firearms will be held.

    Straw purchases are absolutely forbidden. If the Auctioneer has any reason to suspect that a firearm will be given/sold/transferred illegally to a third party, he must, by law, refuse the sale and report his suspicions to the proper authorities.

    Motor Vehicles:
    Some vehicles will be sold on a "bill of sale" only, and no title will be provided. This will be clearly indicated in each lot to which it applies. The titles to vehicles sold "with title" will be provided once the payment has been received and properly posted. All vehicles are sold "as is" as "tow aways"and without a temporary tag or registration. Dealers, with proper documentation may apply a dealer tag and drive the vehicle away.

    Registration is between the buyer and the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). 

    Sales taxes are not assessed on titled motor vehicles. Sales taxes will be collected by the DMV when the vehicle is registered.
