REGISTER TO BID: Simply answer a few basic questions. We collect credit card information to verify your ability to bid.

If you are the successful bidder your credit card will be charged unless prior arrangements have been made. All bids are final and cannot be retracted.
MAXIMUM BID: If you chose to leave a maximum bid and the item sell below your maximum you will only be the charged the final bid amount. The Auction Flex software will bid the predetermined minimum bid when you are out bid and if you check the "outbid notification box" you will be notified if you are no longer the high bidder.
BIDDING & PURCHASING: All bids submitted are final and irrevocable. If you are the highest bidder and the auction house indicates the lot as sold to you, you are the new owner of that item. All sales are final. Every item becomes the responsibility of the new owner as soon as the auction house indicates that an item has been sold. If you are the highest bidder, you are responsible for insuring your purchase immediately.
AUCTION ITEMS: All items are sold on a "as is" basis. Please feel free to contact Fulsom Auctions with any questions and we encourage you to visit the preview.

Fulsom Auctions may attempt to describe the merchandise in advertising, on the internet and in the catalogue, but makes no representations. In no event shall Fulsom Auctions be held responsible for having made or implied any warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose. The Bidder shall be the sole judge of value.

Fulsom Auctions shall endeavor to describe in detail each item and any pertinent information about it.
SOFT CLOSE. Fulsom Auctions Online auctions will have the soft close policy in place. If a bid is placed within the last 2 minutes of a sale that item, the close time of the item will be extended and will remain open as long as there are active bids.
RESERVE: Seldom are items sold with Reserve. If an item is being sold with a reserve, it will be clearly marked and identified. For items sold with a 'reserve', you will be required to pay a minimum amount in order to win the item.
STRATEGY: We recommend that ALL BIDDERS put in their maximum bid when placing a bid online. This does not mean you will have to pay the amount you bid; you only pay one bid more than the next highest bid, and only up to your maximum bid. The software system will play out the bids as you would at a live auction and only uses the funds required to beat out the under-bidder at the prescribed bid increment.
PAYING FOR YOUR PURCHASES: There is no cost to register for an auction. When an auction closes, we will charge your credit card with the winning bid amount, plus applicable Buyers Premium and taxes, as stated in terms of auction Shipping cost is the responsibility of the buyer.
