Terms and Conditions
AUCTION TERMS OF SALE. VERY IMPORTANT! READ CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU ATTEMPT TO BID! ONCE YOU BID, YOU WILL BE BOUND LEGALLY BY THE FOLLOWING TERMS AND RULES THAT ARE STATED HERE:
OBTAINING A USERNAME/PASSWORD FOR Don Rose Auctions: Just click the "Registration" tab on our "Upcoming Auctions" section and follow the instructions. It's easy to get registered and takes about three minutes! If you need assistance registering, E-Mail us at AuctioneerDonRose@gmail.com.
KNOW YOUR LAWS BEFORE BIDDING: We reserve the right to refuse a bidding nickname/password to anyone. Under no circumstances may you apply for a bidding nickname/password if you are under any kind of a disability in terms of possessing a firearm of any kind. No exceptions. We are an FFL dealer, so all federal and state firearm laws govern every aspect of these online auctions and any infractions will be immediately reported to local law enforcement agencies and the ATF. You must be 18 to purchase rifles or shotguns and 21 to purchase a handgun. You must be age 18 to purchase long gun ammunition and age 21 or older to purchase handgun ammunition. You are responsible for knowing if your state bars a certain type of firearm/ammo/accessory from being shipped to you. If you purchase an item that cannot be shipped to your state, we will auction this item at the next auction and mail you a check minus the consignment fee. Know your state/federal firearms laws BEFORE bidding. Note also that Don Rose Auctioneers does NOT under any circumstances pay, nor are we responsible for any fees associated with your hometown FFL - that is between you and your FFL dealer. No exceptions. A $10 Transfer Fee will apply for this auction at pickup.
BIDDING IN THE Don Rose Auctioneers
ONLINE AUCTIONS: Once you are registered and have your nickname/password, you may place bids as soon as an auction item opens for bidding (look at the "clock" with each item for that open/close time). We operate under Eastern Standard Time. Your bids are FINAL and constitute a binding contract. Carefully note: Lots will close at various times during the bidding period. Note carefully the time and day each firearm/item closes - you are responsible for monitoring these close times. Should there be bids on any items within two minutes of close time, the bid on that item will continue for two minutes or more until all bids are exhausted. Please bid early to avoid disappointment. "Sniping" in at the last moment can be risky if your computer crashes or runs slow - and has no advantage in these types of extended auctions.
NOTE CAREFULLY: We are NOT responsible for your SPAM catcher/your computer's malfunctions stopping any of our E-Mails to you in regard to bid confirmations/outbid notifications - you are responsible for watching any gun on which you are high bidder and determining that you are the winner of the auction. The bids received and posted on our site as winners at DonRoseAuctions.com are final. VERY IMPORTANT: We are not responsible for computer malfunctions during the auctions and we are not responsible for "electrical blackouts" or any other acts of Nature. We reserve the right to resume or restart or extend an interrupted auction. IMPORTANT: Make sure you hit your computer's "Refresh" button frequently AND check your emails so you can assure you are the high bidder at any given time and in fact the winner.
HARMONY OF THE SALE/AUCTION PREVIEW: Any person disrupting the harmony of the gun auction/preview days will surrender their password and local law enforcement authorities will be summoned. If found to be in violation of our rules, your current bids will not be honored, and you will be blocked from further Don Rose auctions - your account will be deactivated. We reserve the right to refuse a bid number or the rights to preview the collections to anyone. DO NOT BID unless you have read all of these "Terms of Sale". No other rules apply! We are NOT associated with other websites and have our own terms and rules.
RESPONSIBILITY OF BIDDERS: Read the descriptions of each firearm/view photographs carefully and if you have questions, E-Mail us at AuctioneerDonRose@gmail.com. It does no good to ask questions once you have won the firearm. We want you to be happy with your online purchases and will go to great lengths to describe the firearm. Using YOUR firearms knowledge and experience, form your own opinion of the firearm and bid accordingly. If in doubt, DO NOT BID. All guns are sold as is, where is. Period. THERE IS NO INSPECTION PERIOD OF ANY KIND ONCE THE FIREARM IS PURCHASED AND RECEIVED. This is a real AUCTION. We do not test fire each gun and therefore do not guarantee that they will fire correctly or function correctly. We are not gunsmiths and do not take guns apart - we don't have shotgun bore gauges; nor would we know if all the internal parts are present on any given firearm. All gun sales are final. Any internet descriptions of the sale guns are meant merely as a guide - in many cases we had to rely on the consignor's description, so make your own determination as to its worth and validity. We offer no guarantee or warranty on these firearms. We sell these guns as collectibles only and do not recommend that they be fired. All consignors' names are withheld due to security reasons. As per contract, consignors may not bid on their firearms, nor may they purchase them. All our auction firearms and items start at a minimal amount with NO
RESERVE and WILL SELL. Any paid auction items not picked up within one year will be auctioned and a check issued to the owner with the usual consignment fee deducted.
BUYERS OUTSIDE THE USA: Do not register. Do not bid. We do not have an export license.
TAKING POSSESSION OF AUCTION FIREARMS: We absolutely observe all Federal and State gun laws. We hold Federal Firearms Licenses in Ohio. The same person who registered the bid number MUST be the one to pay and pick up the auction firearm(s) at the conclusion of the sale at Don Rose Auction and Realty per the pickup time stated on your invoice- no one else will be permitted to make the transfer. AVOID THIS PROBLEM
DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES BID FOR ANOTHER PERSON. Merely tell the person to register and create their own account and password. Firearm sales to non-licensees (except for muzzleloaders or antique arms manufactured before 1898 or non-guns) will be subject to and must pass the FBI Instant Check - NICS. The only exception is a licensed Federal Firearms Dealer or Curio & Relic Collector License holder (guns MUST be on ATF approved C&R list or be 50 years or older) who must present a current, signed copy of a license (or FAX or E-Mail scan). CAREFULLY NOTE: As per ATF instructions, we send our FFL only to other FFL's and NOT C&R's or non-licensees. If you are NOT an Ohio resident, you may not take direct possession of a handgun (FFL may take immediate possession of qualifying handguns) - see next section below. If you delay after your Instant Check, you will merely pick up your auction firearm(s) later at Don Rose Auction and Realty. If you deny after your Instant Check, we will take possession of your auction firearms or ammunition and they will be sold at our next available auction and a check will be mailed to you for whatever the gun brings minus a commission fee. If you know you are not supposed to possess a firearm, do not bid at our sales. We will summon law enforcement officials on the matter.
AUCTION GUNS WON BY OUT OF STATE BIDDERS: If you are not an Ohio resident, we will ship your firearms to your local gun dealer when he faxes us his signed, current FFL license, E-Mails a copy, or sends it in the mail. If you have a current ATF License we can ship qualified firearms to your home if your state law permits. The cost for a handgun is $20 and up for shipping and insurance. The cost of a long gun to go UPS Ground insured is at least $35 per gun (more for muskets and guns with many accessories or large cases and more for guns with high value). In some cases, we can get two or more handgun/rifles in one gun box and the charge per gun will be greatly reduced. We'll work with you on this to be the most economical. We will provide a tracking number to you once the gun ships if you request it. We are experts at packing firearms correctly and will make sure your firearms get to your dealer safely. We highly suggest that your local FFL dealer be instructed by you NOT to open the shipping carton until you are present. This is very important! Your name will appear on the shipping label to facilitate this request.
PAYMENT: 10% buyer's premium with be applied to each invoice. Auction invoices will be promptly processed at the auction conclusion and we process your valid credit card on file. It is a Federal crime to write a non-sufficient fund check or cancel a credit card on a firearms purchase - we report the gun as stolen to the ATF and local law enforcement - there is a mandatory prison sentence for the stealing of a firearm - so bear this in mind when using a credit card. All payments, background checks and transfer of firearms will be made at the Don Rose Auction and Realty, 241 S. Main St, Bowling Green, Ohio 43402. All auction guns must be promptly removed (if Instant Check is a proceed).
PICK UP-The time and date will be posted on your invoice.
