 Auctioneer's Notes

Attention Sellers

We have updated the Sellers' statements to comply with the wording of our consignment contracts. For some time now, our contracts have stated that there is a $5 No-Sale fee; however, our system did not charge that fee. Also, if a Seller buys his own item back, our contract states that the Seller/Buyer has to pay the full price including the Buyer's premium (and commission). Again, however, that was not happening. Both of these areas have been updated on our software. Finally, while it is allowed for a Seller to bid on his own items, we discourage it and as stated above, if the Seller wins his own item, he will have to pay for it just like anyone else.

Please update your contact info.
Sometimes we need to call our bidders, so we would appreciate it if everyone would please take a moment and update all their contact info. Simply click on "Account" on our home page and make sure everything is current. Thank you.

Late Fees
Remember, if you can't be here on the scheduled pickup day, then you can avoid late fees by calling us and paying with a credit card on the scheduled pickup day.



~ Terms ~

The following are our General Terms and Conditions; however, each auction's terms may be slightly different, so it is important before bidding in an auction that you read and understand any special terms that apply to that auction as set forth in the Auctioneer’s Notes and in the details for Lot 1. If there is any inconsistency between the following general terms and the special terms for a particular auction, the special terms for the particular auction shall apply.

As-Is and Other Limitations
All items are sold "AS IS," "WHERE IS," and "FINAL," with no warranties, express or implied.

Illustrations, pictures, sounds, or videos posted on AAA Auction's website are for identification purposes only and are not warranties of any type. Photos are merely representative of the items and may not be relied upon for disclosure of all defects. All measurements are approximate, and AAA Auction encourages bidders to preview our auctions when allowed and inspect the items themselves. AAA Auction does not grade items or guarantee the authenticity of any item, including autographs. Grading and specific descriptions are sometimes provided by the sellers and are presumed to be true; however, AAA Auction does not know whether the descriptions and grading provided by sellers are correct. AAA does not guarantee the accuracy of any outside appraisals. AAA Auction does not guarantee representations from sellers such as a jersey being "game worn."  AAA Auction does not know whether some items are reproductions or originals. The buyer assumes complete and sole responsibility for inspection of items before bidding and relies solely on his or her inspection as to the condition, authenticity, and value of items. Occasionally, we include estimated values in the descriptions of items. Any such statements are statements of our opinion only and are not guaranteed. Buyers are advised to do their research before bidding on any item. The buyer waives any claims against AAA Auction and seller based upon the condition or value of items.

In the event that a photo captures a foreign item in the background that is not referred to in the description and is not intended by AAA Auction to be included in the lot, that item shall not be included in the lot. In the event that the bidder reasonably thought that the foreign item was included, he may withdraw his bid with no penalty.

In an effort to be as fair as possible to both the Bidder and the Seller, in the rare case of a mistake made by AAA Auction, the Bidder and the Auctioneer on behalf of the Seller shall each have the right at their discretion to void any sale in which there has been a material mistake in either the description or the photographs pertaining to an item being sold.

Coins and Currency

  • When identical coins are sold in one lot, such as a group of four proof sets for the same year, the photos provided may be of only one set, but are presumed to fairly depict the contents and condition of each set in the group.
  • When coins are sold in a book, AAA Auction does not guarantee that the seller has placed the coins in the book in the correct location and inspection by the buyer is recommended.
  • Buyers may be asked to review their purchase before leaving AAA Auction and sign a form acknowledging that the purchase is accepted as correct.
  • Coins and currency are sold AS-IS with no warranties express or implied. Any statements as to the grade of a coin or any handwritten notes on slabbed coins or the like are not guaranteed. Personal inspection is highly recommended. If any sale is voided for any reason, any financial recovery for the buyer is limited to the return of his or her payment to AAA Auction.
  • AAA makes an effort to be correct when listing the dates and mint marks of coins; however, due to the difficulty in reading some dates and mint marks, AAA does not guarantee the correctness of any dates or mint marks and encourages bidders to inspect the coins themselves.

Coins and Currency Payment
Cash, wire transfers or good credit cards may be used for coin purchases under $1,000. No personal checks will be accepted for coins and currency. Unless previously agreed to by AAA Auction, cash payment or wire transfer is required for coin purchases of $1,000 or more. No credit card chargebacks shall be accepted. If any sale is voided for any reason, any financial recovery for the buyer is limited to the return of his or her payment to AAA Auction.

Coins and Currency Shipping
Shipping is available through the United States Postal Service (USPS) and shall not take place until there has been a successful payment. The handling fee shall be $5.00 for items shipped in a padded envelope and $10 for items shipped in small to medium USPS boxes. The shipping fees shall include the actual fees charged by the USPS including insurance. Shipping costs shall be paid with a credit card.

AAA Auction does not assemble electronics including speakers for testing. Our testing goes no further than to plug in an item to see if it powers up. Also, when referring to old radios, we may say the radio “works.” That merely means that the radio powered up and at least one station came in. It does not mean that the sound was perfect or that all features of the radio worked properly. In addition, unless easily accomplished, AAA Auction does not remove speaker covers for photographs. Therefore, an inspection of electronics if highly recommended.

Bidding Terms
Bidders must be at least 18 years old. Buyers of handguns and handgun ammunition must be 21 years old.

The bidding process described in the link: How to Bid is incorporated into these terms by reference.

Unless stated differently for a specific auction, previews for our auctions shall be as follows:

  • No preview for items expected to sell for less than $100
  • Previews must be scheduled with SignupGenius for 15 minutes per five items to be previewed.
  • Preview is for specific items, not browsing. If possible, items will be brought to a table for preview.
  • Covid procedures as described above must be followed.
  • We will allow a buyer to cancel any sale if it appears at pickup that AAA Auction's description or photos fail to reveal a significant defect or condition of the item.

Pickup Location
Unless otherwise stated in the special terms for an auction, pickup shall be at the AAA Auction Barn at 7140 Old Viking Blvd. NW in Nowthen. Please note the special terms for each auction because sometimes the pickup takes place somewhere else. We request that winning bidders schedule their own pickup times by using our easy online sign-up sheet called SignupGenius. However, we are happy to schedule a pickup time over the phone at (763) 421-3044 for those who prefer to do it that way.

Buyers must load their items. If the pickup is at the Auction Barn, AAA staff will bring most items out of the building for you. If the pickup is at a private home, it may be necessary for you to enter the home or a detached building to remove your items. This may involve carrying items up from a basement or down from an upper level. Please check the special terms for each auction to see if this applies and call AAA Auction if you have any concerns. Notwithstanding the above, if you ask for help loading and if AAA workers help you load, a loading fee will be charged in advance that will not be less than and may be more than $30.00.

Type Of Payment
Except as stated above for coins and currency, we accept cash, good checks, cashier's checks, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover. Two forms of ID are needed for checks, with at least one being a photo ID. No out-of-state checks. AAA Auction reserves the right to postpone shipping any item until the Buyer's check clears the bank. There is a $30.00 fee on all returned checks. Credit cards will be accepted up to $5,000. Unless prior arrangements are made, firearms, and titled items must be paid for with cash. 

Also, payment to AAA Auction in cash of $10,000 or more requires the buyer to complete the IRS form 8300.

AAA Auction reserves the right to ask for and obtain credit card information from any bidder to guarantee their bids during the auction and to guarantee any check written for $500 or more after the auction closes. Failure to provide credit card information when requested to do so shall result in the cancellation of all unpaid bids and the privilege to bid in the future. 

While AAA Auction usually accepts credit cards, we reserve the right to request payment in cash or by wire transfers.

Buyer's Premium
Please check each individual auction for its buyer's premium.

Sales Tax
Unless the auction is an estate auction for one person only, as opposed to a consignment auction, sales tax will be charged. Please check the involved auction to see if sales tax will be collected.

Sale Items Subject to Change
The auctioneer reserves the right to add items to or remove items from the auction at any time, even during the bidding process; to split or combine lots; to edit descriptions; to add or remove photos; to add minimum bids or reserve prices; to cancel, suspend, extend or reschedule an individual item and or an entire auction; or to change any auction's closing time, preview time, or pickup time.

Late Pickups with a Call to AAA
If you cannot pick up your items on the scheduled day, you must call us during the scheduled pickup time and pay for them with a credit card or you will lose your bidding privileges. When you call, you will be asked to schedule a new pickup time on the following Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday morning. If you pay for your items but do not pick them up by the rescheduled date, you shall be charged a late fee of $10 per day until your items are picked up. If your late fees exceed the amount you paid, your items shall be forfeited by you as payment for your late fees and you shall lose your bidding privileges. AAA does not promise to call and remind you to pick up your items.

Missed Pickup and no Call to AAA

If you miss pickup and you do not call us on the pickup day or before, we will cancel the sale of your items and you will lose your bidding privileges. If you call us later and ask for your items, it shall be within our discretion to sell the items to you or not. If we still have them and agree to sell them to you, you must pay for them with a credit card during your call to us and we will charge you a $10.00 late fee. The pickup shall then take place during the next scheduled pickup day at AAA Auction. If you pay for your items but do not pick them up as described, the above paragraph shall apply. It shall be within the discretion of AAA Auction whether to reinstate your bidding privileges if they have been canceled for any reason.

All new customers to AAA Auction must o pay for their gun purchase with cash. All federal, state and local laws apply to the sale and transfer of guns and the Buyers are responsible for knowing all federal, state and local laws of the location where the gun will be transferred. In Minnesota, Buyers of handguns must have a carry or a purchase permit or an FFL license to take possession of a handgun.

Bidders may win a bid and pay for a handgun without the necessary permit; however, if that occurs AAA Auction shall retain possession of the handgun for up to 2 months while the Buyer obtains the necessary permit. Once the Buyer obtains the required permit the Buyer shall fill out a 4473 at the AAA Auction location. The sale shall be deemed complete only after a successful background check at which time the gun shall be transferred to the Buyer. If more than two months go by without the Buyer providing the necessary permit to AAA Auction and passing the background check, then AAA Auction may cancel the sale and refund the purchase price to the Buyer less the amount of the Buyer’s Premium charged which AAA Auction shall keep as liquidated damages.

By purchasing a firearm from AAA Auction the Buyer agrees to follow the manufacturer’s safety instructions and to only use the firearm in a safe manner in an approved area for a legal purpose. The Buyer assumes all responsibility for the legality of the firearm when he or she purchases it. The Buyer must be the actual buyer of the gun and not be buying it for another person. The person to whom we transfer a firearm must be the same person registered with AAA Auction as the winning bidder on the firearm. Buyers of rifles and shotguns must be 18 years old. Buyers of handguns and guns with pistol grips (AR type rifles) and the ammunition therefore must at least 21 years old.

AAA will only accept ammunition to sell that is in the manufacturer’s original box or package. AAA does not accept private reloads, but AAA will accept commercial reloads as long as they are commercially packaged. AAA disclaims any knowledge of the history of any of the ammunition it sells and does not guarantee whether any ammunition it sells are reloads or factory seconds. It may be that the ammunition is not as described on the box or package. All ammunition sold by AAA is AS-IS. AAA Auction makes no warranties including fitness for the intended purpose or marketability for any of the ammunition it sells. The buyer acknowledges that the use of any ammunition may be dangerous and could lead to an injury. Buyer accepts 100% of the risk in using any ammunition bought at AAA Auction. Buyer shall hold AAA Auction harmless and shall indemnify AAA Auction and its staff from any and all claims for damages, loss, injury, or the like arising from the sale and use of said ammunition.

AAA Auction will ship small and medium-sized items through the USPS. AAA will not ship large items; however, we may on a case-by-case basis agree to take a large item to a professional shipper to have it shipped. We will not ship ammunition or items sold at the AAA Auction Barn. There is a handling charge of $9.00 for all small and medium-sized packages we ship and $20.00 for all long items such as rifles or shotguns. The handling charge for items taken to a professional shipper shall be $25 per item. Shipping fees also include the actual fees charged by the post office or professional shipper. Shipping info for coins and currency is near the top of these terms.

With Reserve
