The absence of a condition statement does not imply that the lot offered is in good condition.
The photo captions, catalog, internal or external search engines, advertising and/or auctioneer’s statements, etc, are a courtesy provided by Bid Daddy Auctions, and meant as a descriptive guide only. The bidder is cautioned to use the preview to examine all merchandise using his/her best judgment as to whether or not the photo captions, catalog, internal or external search engines, advertising and/or auctioneers statements, etc, are accurate.

The purchase price payable by highest in-house, absentee or telephone bidders shall be the sum of the final bid plus the buyer’s premium of 15% in-house, and 16.5% for internet bids, less any discounts, if offered. All purchases are subject to the current 7.00% Albuquerque, New Mexico sales tax rate, except as provided for out of state internet bidders. Resale tax certificates from New Mexico and other states are accepted, but the resale tax certificate form must be fully and completely filled out and received prior to time of purchase.
All highest bid purchase prices will be in U.S. dollars. We accept cash, checks (with proper identification and an approved bank letter of guarantee), Visa, MasterCard or American Express credit or debit cards.

Consignor buybacks are allowed. The fees are set by Bid Daddy Auctions in advance, and consignors are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the fees and conditions of the buyback program offered by Bid Daddy Auctions.
Consignors are responsible for arranging their own lots. Lots or lot components are expected to be in working condition, as well as clean and presentable. Any lot containing items found to be non-working or dirty, can be returned or disposed of at Bid Daddy Auctions discretion. Bid Daddy Auctions will provide lot arrangement or lot boxing for an additional fee that is set in advance and will be provided upon request.
Bid Daddy Auctions reserves the right to reject any bid, as well as the right to refuse to acknowledge any bidder. The highest bidder acknowledged by the auctioneer will be the purchaser. In the event of a dispute between bidders, the auctioneer has the final discretion to determine the successful bidder or to re-offer the lot in dispute to any point where a bid may have been acknowledged. If any dispute arises after the sale of any lot, Bid Daddy Auctions sales records shall be conclusive.
No auction lot may be removed during the sale or at any time until the full purchase price has been paid. All lots must be so paid and removed at the highest bidders expense the day of the sale or they become subject to a storage fee of $10.00 per item, per day and without exception. Absentee and phone highest bidders must arrange pick up of their purchases within 1 business day of the auction or they become subject to a storage fee of $10.00 per item, per day and without exception. Bid Daddy Auctions will not be held responsible for loss or damage to items not picked up the day of the sale. If storage fees are equal to or greater than the purchase price at any point after the day of sale, the item then becomes the property of Bid Daddy Auctions and may be disposed of as seen fit.
Bid Daddy Auctions does not provide assistance in the removal of any lot purchased by the highest bidder, nor does Bid Daddy Auctions provide any packing or shipping materials required for the safe or secure removal of any lot, except for sales made to internet bidders.
If, for any cause, a purchased lot is found to be stolen, broken or lost prior to highest bidder pickup during the day of, or after the end of the day of sale, Bid Daddy Auctions shall not be liable for any amount paid by the purchaser. It will be at Bid Daddy Auction's discretion if any refund or partial refund will be allowed.
