Description
Hot Rod & Vintage Car Lover's Auction! We should have changed the name of this month's Auction but it changed into more of a precursor of the upcoming Portland Swap Meet that starts the day after this auction ends. Vintage car parts, tools, memorabilia from meets around the NW, diecast cars, and more took over the auction. I do expect you'll see a few of these items appear at the Swap Meet at tables for sale over the weekend. For the rest of you, don't despair, there's portions of a beautiful estate full of great items: furniture, china, Hallmark collectibles, die-cast vehicles, silverware, signed sports items and so much more from this estate and our regular consignors. NOTE: We ARE going to follow this one with another auction in 2 weeks and that will be followed by a special art auction one week later. 3 warehouses full already and more coming. Anyone know of a warehouse for rent in the Vancouver area? Really, we need to move to large facilities.
All lots are sold "as is" with no guarantee expressed or implied unless we say an item is tested and working, then you have our word and a 48 hr guarantee (gives you time to get it home and plug it in). On all listings we are going by what we were told by the estate/vendor or through our best knowledge. It is YOUR responsibility to pre-check the items and verify it to your liking. We try our best to get accurate information and good photos but please check everything. Yes, We want you to come down and look at the items. Call to make sure I'm there (503-756-5637). Lots close at 15 second intervals beginning at 6:30PM, the night of the auction. We use a "soft close" auction. That means if you are bidding on an item and someone makes a last minute bid, that item will be extended for 2 additional minutes, allowing you to make a counter bid. (Doesn't affect other lots) Payment: You will receive an invoice at the end of the auction. Payment must be paid within 24 hours after the auction. If you are paying other than on-line, please contact us prior. If you can't do this, please do not bid. We can now take credit cards over the phone, please contact us. Pick Up: Friday and Saturday following the auction (Sunday by appointment) at our location in Vancouver. It is easy to get to but please make appointment to make sure we will be available. If items not picked up within 30 days of paying, they may be resold or given away with no compensation to purchaser. Mailing: Yes, we can mail most items and cost is generally low so please feel free to ask for costs. We are not set up for shipping larger items. Due to rush on Friday and Saturday for pick up, we usually can't get to packing items and giving you exact shipping charges until Sun or Mon, but you need to pay for the items within 24 hours and we'll invoice you for the shipping when it's ready.
Your bid must adhere to the bid increment schedule.
