To be forthright and honest in our business, we present these policies for buying and selling with Alderfer Auction.

Our Guarantee

While every effort is made to determine provenance, authenticity and condition, it is the responsibility of the bidder to arrive at their own conclusion prior to bidding. Provenance and authenticity including attributions are not guaranteed by either the consignor or Alderfer Auction. We strongly encourage bidders to personally inspect all lots or review online descriptions if available to obtain necessary information. Bidders may request a condition report for each lot and while Alderfer will attempt to accommodate all requests we will not be liable for failing to do so. Statements made by Alderfer Auctionregarding the condition of lots are for guidance only and should not be relied upon as statements of fact and do not constitute a representation, warranty or assumption of liability by Alderfer Auction. All lots offered regardless of a condition report are sold “as is.”

Policy for items sold in the Weekly Auction

All items at our auctions are sold “as is – where is” with no guarantees. A Buyer’s Premium, which is a percentage of the “hammer price,” will be added to each purchase to reach the final sale price. Most items are sold with no minimum or reserve. The final sale price is subject to applicable sales tax. Payment is required day of auction in cash, approved check, or accepted credit card (MasterCard, VISA, Discover, American Express and PayPal).
