Auction Terms & Conditions

Information on Terms:  By registering to bid, you agree that you have reviewed and accept our terms and conditions.  Please be sure to read them in full.

Condition of items:  GC5 Auctions has made our best effort to accurately and completely describe each item but all items are sold as-is and where is with no warranty intended or implied.  If there is a condition statement, it does not imply that the lot is in perfect condition or completely free from wear and tear or imperfections. It is the buyers responsibility to examine all photos and ask questions as needed.

Payment:  Payment is made with the credit card on file at time of registration..  We accept all major credit cards.  Payment must be made before scheduled pick-up.  Buyer agrees that all items are sold as-is and where-is with no warranties intended, implied or provided.  By agreeing to these terms, no credit card chargebacks will be initiated or accepted.

Buyers Premium:  Buyers will be charged a 10% buyers premium. 

Bids:  Once placed, we can not retract bids.  Please be careful when placing bids.

Included items:  Display stands and other items for display are not included unless specified.

Extended Bidding or Soft Close:  Our soft close feature ensures bidding is fair for all.  In the closing moments of an auction, if a bid is placed during the moments on an item, it will extend the bidding for that item for an additional time. Typically this is 90 seconds but can be longer in certain circumstances.  This is similar to a live auction, during which the bidding will continue as long as bidders increase the bid amounts.

This functionality was built into the online auction system to build the fairest consumer bidding system possible.  

Shipping and Pick-Up: All auctions have a designated pick-up time as stated in the auction. If pickup is in our client's home, there will be a link provided at the bottom of your invoice to sign up for a specific time slot. We do this so we can control traffic within neighborhoods. This also allows us to have your small items pulled prior to your getting there, which allows us to serve each customer more efficiently.  Often this is the only access we have to the property and must adhere to this schedule.  Items brought back to our office and left longer than 72 hours will be considered abandoned and disposed of as we see fit.  The buyer is responsible for packing and loading of all purchased items.  Shipping is available at the buyer's expense on small items and we recommended you contact GC5 prior to bidding.  We will not ship furniture or very delicate items at this time.  GC5 Auctions charges a $6.00 handling charge per package shipped. 

Item sizes and weights:  GC5 makes its best effort to provide accurate dimensions on listed items.  Often, measurements are available in the photographs.  When weighing sterling silver flatware sets, we do not include the knives in the weight as the blades are stainless.

Tax: NC Sales tax will be charged unless we are presented with a valid and current NC Sales Tax Resale Certificate at time of registration.
