General Terms & Conditions of Sale


How do I join your mailing list or edit my preferences?

How do I receive approval to bid online?

Harry Davis and Company actively reviews all auction registrants.

Approval to bid is based on previous Harry Davis and Company Auction participation, purchase history and prompt payment, as well as positive and negative feedback. Where a bidder does not meet the approval criteria, a deposit via check or wire transfer ($2,500 unless otherwise noted) will be required for approval. The deposit is refundable or may be applied to the balance of purchases after the sale. The deposit must be received prior to the start of the auction.
