GILMAN & SON AUCTION SERVICES LLC
Q:Is there a deposit to get a bid card?
A: Yes. Deposits vary each sale. The deposit must be in cash only and is refundable if you purchase nothing. If you do purchase items then your deposit will be applied to the items you bought. You can then pay the balance due with cash or accepted credit cards (unless it is a lien or storage auction than it is cash only)
Q:How long do I have to pay for what I bought?
A: All items must be paid for day of the sale. If you're making large purchases totaling more than $2500.00 you will need to post a nonrefundable 35% deposit and pay the balance due by 5 pm the next business day in cash only. If it is a storage or lien auction payment is due in full right after the last unit is sold in cash only.
Q:Why is 10% being added to my bill?
A:The 10% purchase fee covers the cost of holding the sale. Such as paying the advertising, crew, and building rentals. This also allows us to charge less to the seller which in turn brings us the consignments that other auctions have trouble obtaining. Stoage auctions may or may not have a fee added. check the terms of the sale posting.
Q: Do I have to pay sales tax?
A: YES, Everyone pays sales tax on everything purchased including vehicles. If you have a ARIZONA state tax permit you will then need to fill out a 5000A form for the state and you then wouldn't pay the sales tax. You must however have the tax permit with you at time of the sale or you will be required to pay the tax and no refunds of the tax for that sale will be given. You can then sign up next sale and then you will be on file.
Q:Is there a age requirement at auctions?
A: YES. You must be at least 18 years old to get a bid card or attend our sales. I.D. will be required to get a bid card.
Q:When do I have to remove the items I purchased?
A: In most cases you have to pay and remove all items same day of the sale. We are not responsible for any items you leave. It is always better to bring the crew and trucks or trailers needed to remove your purchases that day.
Q:Can I be refused entry to the auction?
A:YES. We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone at any time for any reason deemed by us to disrupt the course of the sale.
Q:Are all item sold to highest bid?
A: YES. All items will be sold to highest bidder as long as there is no reserve on the item. Being agents for both you the buyer and the seller of the items being sold, we can end a sale or cancel the sale at anytime if we feel the outcome will hurt our consignor in any way.
