Property is open to thorough public inspection. Bidders who choose not to attend the Preview understand and acknowledge that they may not be able to inspect an item as well as if they had examined it in person. It is the Bidder's responsibility to assess condition, age, authenticity, value and other determinative factors. Bennett Auction Service shall endeavor to describe in detail each item or lot and any pertinent information about it, and shall not be held responsible for any errors or omissions in the description of the merchandise unless it is a material and intentional misrepresentation of the item or lot itself. All property is sold as is, and all sales are final. Bidder forfeits the right to instigate credit card charge backs and shall contact Bennett Auction Service directly with disputes and/or claims. Bennett Auction Service shall refund Bidder's credit card for any and all claims that Bennett Auction Service deems legitimate. Please understand that we need your purchased items removed from our warehouse so that we have room to prep another sale. If you don't pick up during the time specified below in the Checkout Dates and Times section or contact us prior to the specified pickup time to make other arrangements, we will ship your items. Please see Shipping Instructions for details. TRANSFER OF FIREARMS: All Wisconsin residents that purchase non-antique firearms (as defined by the BATFE) and all nonresidents that purchase non-antique long guns and that intend to take possession of their firearms purchases at Bennett Auction Service, 700 Main Street, Prentice, Wisconsin 54556 must first successfully complete an ATF Form 4473 and must not be denied by either a NICS background check or a WI Handgun Hotline background check, as applicable. Face-to-face transfers of non-antique handguns to WI residents also require a two day waiting period before transfer; the $13 Wisconsin Handgun Hotline call-in charge will be passed along to the buyer. Alternately, non-antique firearms may be shipped to a Federal Firearms License (FFL) holder for legal transfer to the purchaser. Please provide us with a signed copy of the FFL holder's license (by postal mail or email) that will be handling the transfer and we will ship the firearm(s) to the licensee. If you require either a NICS background check or a WI Handgun Hotline background check, or if we ship your purchase(s) to another FFL holder for transfer, a $10 administrative fee will be added to your invoice. We cannot ship non-antique handguns and/or long guns directly to purchasers, nor will we ship firearms out of the United States or to California. All firearms that enter or exit our facility must be unloaded and in a locked case, as we are within 1,000 feet of a School Zone. BUYERS WHO DO NOT OR CANNOT TAKE POSSESSION OF A PURCHASED FIREARM: If a buyer is determined legally ineligible to take possession of a firearm, or if the buyer chooses not to take possession of the firearm for any other reason, the buyer is still responsible for payment in full to Bennett Auction Service for the gavel price plus all applicable buyer's premiums, taxes, and/or additional expenses. FIREARMS AND OTHER RESTRICTED/REGULATED ITEMS: The buyer is solely responsible for knowing and complying with all federal, state, and local laws that apply to their ownership and/or possession of firearms and other restricted/regulated items. This is not our responsibility. If you cannot legally own something we are selling, do not bid on it. If you are unsure if you can legally own something we are selling, find out.
