CONDITION OF THE WINES
Lots are sold “as is” without recourse. Neither the Charity nor the auctioneer may give a warranty of any kind as to the lots. Nor shall they be liable in any manner for errors in descriptions, faults, or defects. All warranties and conditions implied by law are hereby excluded. No person shall have recourse against the Charity or the auctioneer for any irregularity or illegality in the sale, in the conduct of the sale, or of the lots. Wines will be displayed before the auction. It is the purchaser’s responsibility to inspect the items to satisfy themselves with their condition. The wine offered for sale at the auction may not have been tested by the Liquor Control Board of Ontario. By way of the auction, the purchaser of the wine is required by law to acknowledge this in writing.
All purchasers must register. On-site registration will begin at 6:30 p.m. on the day of the auction.
The sale will take place by lot number, as set out in the catalogue. Lots will be sold as described. However, the auctioneer may withdraw, unite, or divide lots at his or her discretion. Bidding increments are at the discretion of the auctioneer. All bids are in Canadian dollars. There are no premiums or taxes on any lot. The highest bidder acknowledged by the auctioneer shall be the purchaser. The auctioneer has the right to reject any bid and determine the successful bidder in case of a dispute between bidders. The auctioneer also has the right to re-offer and re-sell the item in dispute. Should there be any dispute after the sale, the Charity’s record of the final sale shall be conclusive.
Items purchased at the auction must be paid for immediately. No delivery will be made until full payment has been received. Payments may be made by cash, cheque, Visa, MasterCard, or American Express.
PICKUP AND DELIVERY
Unless alternative arrangements have been made in advance, purchases must be collected at the time of the sale. The purchaser may request delivery, which they will be financially responsible for.
Some of the lots are offered subject to a reserve or Opening Bid. The auctioneer may open the bidding on any lot by placing consecutive bids on behalf of the Charity but only up to the reserve.
Potential purchasers who cannot be present at the sale can submit commissioned bids. Commissioned bids can be received by email at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than the day before the auction at 2:00 p.m. Live telephone bidding can be arranged for absentee bidders by prior arrangement only with the Charity. Commissioned bids can be for a maximum amount or the best price plus the next increment. If the last bid is less than the commissioned bid, the commissioned bid will take the lot at the next increment above the last bid. Successful bidders will be notified by email and/or telephone, and arrangements for payment and delivery will be made at that time.
Wine lots and opening bid prices are subject to change prior to the Live Auction event.
