We appreciate all of our bidders both local and out of the area but we are an auction company and not a storage facility. If items are not collected or shipping is not arranged by 6 PM on Wednesday, October 16th, 2019 they are at risk of being forfeited and disposed of or donated to charity and the purchaser will lose their money that they bid on the item. If there is an arrangement with the seller to store items past the pick-up date, it will be on a case by case basis and a $25 per day storage fee will be applied per lot. If we have not received any form of communication or direction from the buyer on when they will collect their winning lots then we will ship them to the address we have on file for the buyer and charge the buyer for all shipping and handling fees.
Out of area buyers, your lots can be shipped to you by our 3rd Party Shipping Team if specifically requested. Items will be shipped via UPS, USPS or The Packaging Store. After payment for lots has been received, we will package your item for shipping and you will receive a 2nd invoice with shipping and handling charges added to it and your credit card on file with us will be charged a 2nd time for the Shipping & Handling charges. Please note objects that do not fit into a small, medium, or large USPS flat rate box will be packaged and shipped via a local UPS store affiliate, at the buyer’s full expense via UPS ground unless otherwise specified. All Payments by cashier's check over $500 from out of state will require a bank letter of credit or will be held for 2 weeks. Please note shipping from Alaska can be costly and while we do our best to minimize costs, it is the sole responsibility of the buyer to cover any and all costs associated with shipping regardless of expense. Alaskan ivory will not be shipped outside of the United States. International buyers may bid on ivory items but must plan to pick up ivory pieces in the state of Alaska within the pick-up hours for each auction. Ammunition cannot be shipped out of the state of Alaska. Firearms must be shipped to a Federal Firearms License (FFL) holder if purchased by out of state buyers that require shipping and buyer is responsible for all shipping/handling and FFL transfer fees.
Shipping costs are the sole responsibility of the buyer. All Freight items will be the responsibility of the buyer. Shipping will be handled by Alaska Premier Auctions & Appraisals and our 3rd Party Shipping Team. Charges will include the cost of shipping and packaging supplies as well as a modest handling fee that is roughly a 15% mark-up of the total packaging material and shipping charges from our 3rd party shipping partner. Items will be combined to reduce shipping costs to the greatest extent possible while maintaining the safety of the items within the package. All purchases with a combined value over $100.00 will require insurance and signature confirmation which will be paid by the buyer. While we try to ship all items within the first week after the auction closes, all purchases will be shipped within 10 business days of payment. Your credit card will be charged once for your items, and then a second time for your shipping & handling fees. There are handling and material costs associated with your shipping total. Please be aware that while we try to keep costs to an absolute minimum for you, we cannot ship your items for free. We use new supplies, bubble wrap, boxes, and packing materials. Our goal is to get your winning items to you in the same condition as they left the state. If you have any questions or concerns, please email us at email@example.com or call us at 907-570-7050. Buyers who do not pick up their items within the specified pickup time window will have them shipped to their address on file and at their full expense unless prior arrangements have been approved by the auctioneer.

Background Checks and Final Sales:
Anyone that bids on firearms must be of legal age to do so. Highest bidders of firearms must be able to pass a federal background check and legally purchase firearms. All sales of firearms will not be considered final until the background check is successfully passed by the highest bidder. In the case that the background check comes back unapproved then the bidder will be refunded the hammer price of the firearm(s) but will forfeit the buyer's premium and any additional fees that were due in the processing of their unsuccessful transaction. The firearm will be kept by the auction company and sold to the back-up bidder or re-sold at a future auction. Bidders that knowingly bid on firearms when they cannot pass a background check or legally possess a firearm risk being banned from any and all future auctions with our auction company.
All DMV & Auction Company vehicle transfer/registration fees are the responsibility of the buyer to pay and are non-negotiable.
