Rats, I thought this would be full of fishing lures. Oh well. Anyone want to make jewelry?
~ Terms ~
All items are sold "AS IS," "WHERE IS," and "FINAL," with no warranties, express or implied.
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.
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.
Each auction may have Special Terms for that auction that may differ slightly from these General Terms. If that occurs, The Special Terms for each auction shall apply. Bidder agrees that any details provided in the Auctioneer’s Note on the home page for any auction shall be part of the contract terms for the auction and are hereby incorporated by reference.
To maintain the safest environment possible for our customers, AAA Auction asks our bidders to follow the following:
Masks must be worn and social distancing must be followed as much as possible at preview and pickup.
In an effort to minimize Covid risks and 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.
- Covid procedures as described above must be followed.
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.
Except as stated below 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.
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. Shipping is available for coins and currency through the USPO. Shipping shall not take place until there has been a successful payment. The cost will be the actual cost charged by the USPO including insurance plus $5.00 handling fee. Shipping costs shall be paid with a credit card. Coins and currency are sold AS-IS with no warranties express or implied. Personal inspection is highly recommended. 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.
Please check each individual auction for its buyer's premium.
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.
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.
You agree to pick up your items at your scheduled pickup time for the involved auction. We know, however, that sometimes things come up that may make that difficult. In those cases, you must call us before your scheduled pickup time and pay for your purchase with a credit card (unless you can pick up your item later on the same day). We will then hold your item for you until the next scheduled pickup day or before. Unless otherwise agreed, if you do not pick up your items by the next scheduled pickup day, you shall pay AAA Auction storage fees of $5 per lot per day commencing two weeks after the original pickup day that you missed. If you do not pick up your items by the time the storage fees exceed the amount of your purchase, your items shall be considered abandoned by you and you shall forfeit any interest in or claims arising out of those items.
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 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.
AAA Auction will not ship ammunition. AAA Auction will generally not accept privately reloaded ammunition and it disclaims any knowledge of the history of any of the ammunition it sells and does not guarantee whether any ammunition it sells was factory loaded, factory seconds, or privately reloaded. It may be that some of the ammunition sold are factory seconds or reloads. It may be that the reloads are of poor quality. It may be that the ammunition is not as described on the box. AAA does not empty every box to check the contents. 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 reloaded or factory-loaded 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.
Bidder does hereby indemnify and hold harmless the Auctioneer and his staff, AAA Auction and the Seller from any damages, claims, or liabilities from injuries to persons or property of any type whatsoever, caused before, during, or after the auction.
All auctions and auction items by law in Minnesota are with reserve unless stated as absolute. This means that the Seller may bid on his items and the Auctioneer and his staff reserve the right to bid on and purchase items in this auction as well.
We do not guarantee continuous, uninterrupted access to our services. The operation of the website and services may be interfered with by numerous factors outside of our control. AAA Auction is not responsible for lost or misdirected e-mails, slowness in the transmission of bids, technical difficulties that result in loss of Bidder's internet connection with www.auctionmn.com, or other technical problems. AAA Auction is not responsible for any difficulties that may occur in the proper or timely transmission or access of e-mail forwarded to any e-mail address. Bidders agree to hold AAA Auction harmless from the vagaries of the Internet, spam filters, lack of storage space, and rules set by different Internet service providers, and all other factors which may cause the failure of bids or emails to be received by AAA Auction.
