For all auction or sale items, payment of the total purchase price plus applicable fees, charges and taxes must be made in full by wire transfer or other acceptable method within seven (7) days after the date of sale.  Invoices will be emailed at the close of the auction and will include the Buyer’s Premium of 30% along with other fees, charges and taxes to the extent they apply and are known at such time.  If certain fees, charges and taxes are not known at the time the initial invoice is issued, a supplemental invoice may be issued later. 


After approval by Litchfield County Auctions, Inc. (“LCA”), which LCA may withhold in its discretion, payment in an amount less than $5,000.00 may be made by acceptable credit card.  Property will not be released to You or Your agent until full payment has been made as provided herein.  Purchased items must be picked up within fourteen (14) days after the date of sale. 


LCA reserves the right to obtain written assurance that any payment has been received and cleared.  A fee of $30.00 will be charged for any payment which fails to clear for any reason.  No merchandise will be released until payment in full has been received and cleared. 



Unless exempt by law, a purchaser will be required to pay Connecticut sales tax or any applicable compensating tax of another state that LCA may be required to collect.  All purchased property picked up at our gallery or shipped or delivered to an address in Connecticut is subject to Connecticut sales tax, unless a valid resale number and certificate are provided to LCA by the purchaser.  If you have a resale number, we can provide a resale certificate for your completion.



Items located at LCA’s gallery may be picked up Monday through Friday between 9:30AM and 4:30PM every day during the week following the auction.  If you cannot pick up during those times, please contact us to make an appointment for pick-up.  Should you be a successful bidder the address of LCA’s gallery for pick-up is 425 Bantam Road (Rte. 202), Litchfield, CT 06759. 



LCA advises prospective bidders to obtain shipping quotes before placing bids.

LCA will not be responsible for packing items or arranging shipping.  Packing and loading of items at LCA’s gallery (or elsewhere) is the responsibility of the purchaser.  LCA may offer assistance, but neither LCA nor its employees or agents shall be liable for any damages or accidents that occur in handling, moving, lifting, loading or packing of items or thereafter (as, for example, during transit).   


Packing, shipping and insurance fees are an additional and separate expense.  Please contact your preferred shipper directly for quotes and to make arrangements for shipping and delivery of your items.  Once payment for your auction purchase has been cleared, merchandise will be released to your designated recipient or shipper.
