After the Auction

Paying for your items

Methods of payment

Accepted forms of payment include cash, check, Visa, Mastercard or wire transfer. Invoices greater than $5,000 require payment by certified check, bank check or wire transfer only. Elite Decorative Arts reserves the right to hold merchandise purchased by personal check until the check has cleared the bank. Credit card payments require a completed Credit Card Authorization form to be faxed to us unless card is present.

Buyer's Premium

The invoice will include the successful hammer price of the item and the buyer's premium. The buyer's premium is 20% of the hammer price. All online bids will be charged an additional 3 to 5%. Applicable sales tax will also be added to the final total. All sales are final and subject to the Conditions of Sale.

Pick-Ups

Auction purchases should be paid for and picked up at Elite Decorative Arts by 4:45 pm on the 5th weekday following the auction. Items left beyond this period may be subject to a storage fee. Please note that the hours for removal of property are Monday through Friday from 10:00am until 6:00pm (EST), except on auction days during which only purchases made that day may be picked up.

Shipping

Shipping is the responsibility of the buyer. If a buyer has a purchase shipped out of Florida via a licensed shipper, applicable sales tax will not be assessed. In the interest of our clients, Elite Decorative Arts requires a written authorization from the buyer in order to release property if anyone other than the person on the invoice will be picking up the purchased lot.
