By signing up to bid and by bidding, bidder agrees not to violate the payment provisions of these General Terms and Conditions.
All lots are sold as is, where is, with all the faults, imperfections, omissions and errors in the written description, estimates, appraisals, graphics and photography. Christophorus House is not responsible for any errors or omissions in the description, graphics or photography provided or in the bidding software. Due diligence to verify the condition and description of a lot is the sole responsibility of the Bidder prior to placing any bid. Returns may only be made with the advance written authorization of Christophorus House and are in Christophorus House sole discretion to approve. To request a return, you must provide a written request fully explaining the basis for the return no later than 3 days after your receipt of the lot. Under no circumstances will any amounts other than the winning bid amount be refunded. Any allowed returns must be received in exactly the same condition as when originally shipped to Buyer, or they will be returned to buyer at Buyer's cost. Any unauthorized returns will be refused. Delivery refusal of items shipped by Christophorus House to the bidder constitutes an unauthorized return in direct violation of these general terms and conditions.

In the event that a bidder does not respond to Christophorus House request for payment or does not fulfill complete payment within 5 (five) business days, a second attempt for payment will be sent. A final invoice will be sent soon thereafter and if payment in full is not received the account will be reported to Live Auctioneers as a non-responsive bidder and the Bidder will not be able to participate in any further auctions.
Shipping will be handled in-house for most lots. This is in an effort to maintain the lowest shipping and handling cost for our buyers. We provide handling, packing and shipping services solely as a convenience for our Bidders. Because Bidders most often opt for these services, we include an estimated amount in the auction invoice.
Our responsibility for damage to or loss of any lot ends once it has been turned over to the post services, or other shipping enterprise for delivery and/or packing. By bidding, the winning Bidder agrees that any and all claims for loss or damage to the lot will be handled solely through the insurance claims process (if insurance was available) or the carrier and acknowledges that insurance may be subject to deductibles or other limitations which are not the responsibility of Christophorus House. Christophorus House is not responsible to any loss resulting from items being shipped to an alternate address or recipient provided by Bidder.
We ship by regular mail within a commercially reasonable time following credit of the Bidders payment to our account. On average, a Bidder may expect to receive their items within 3 weeks from payment clearing, however, now and then there may be a delay in delivery. The actual cost of shipping, insurance, registry and confirmation services is charged to the Bidder. Packing/handling fee is charged to the Bidder. Large, heavy, fragile or otherwise unusual items will incur additional charges. Under special circumstances, Christophorus House may ship items using USPS Express Mail, private carriers or pack and ship enterprises, the cost of which shall be charged to the winning Bidder. Requests of earlier shipment or special handling may be accommodated on a limited basis at Christophorus House sole discretion and ability and may incur additional handling charges. All costs charged to a Bidder's original invoice are estimates and Christophorus House reserves the right to charge additional amounts if such estimates are exceeded and Bidder hereby agrees to such additional amounts.
BUYERS PREMIUM: A buyers premium will be applied to the purchase price of all items- 22% .

In Christophorus House sole discretion USPS shipments to foreign locations shall utilize registered mail and Bidder shall pay for the costs thereof. It is the foreign bidder's obligation to be aware of and instruct Christophorus House regarding any special taxes or fees applicable to their particular circumstances.

Even if paid in full, no items will be shipped to any Bidder for any particular auction if the Bidder has any balances with Christophorus House from other auctions which are not in compliance with the provisions of payment above, until such balances are paid in full and all funds have cleared.
