Welcome to GovernmentAuction.com Terms and Conditions. Good Luck Bidding on all of our great Assets and Investments.
Bidding on any item indicates your acceptance of these terms listed below and all other terms announced at the time of sale whether bidding in person, through a representative, by phone, internet or other absentee bid.

Payment Terms/Returns
You have 72 hours from date of invoice to make payment of your winning bids.  During this time you can gain further information on Land, Coin, Jewelry and Memorabilia items purchased to make a final decision prior to payment.  We recommend you review each item listing in detail and take the time to do so and also contact customer support as necessary.  Don't forget all sales are final, unless under special condition.

Damaged Goods/Returns:
If a purchase arrives and it is defective or damaged you will not be charged for return shipping and will be offered a replacement item or a full 100% refund. Prior to returning an item the customer must obtain a Return Authorization number from our Customer Service Department.

Occasionally you may notice that an item is re-listed. This can be due to a variety of reasons such as a winning bidder in a previous auction not paying for the item, multiple types of the same item or it is one of the few items listed with a reserve and the reserve was not met. In the case that an item has a reserve the auctioneer/computer will take the item to the agreed upon reserve.

Disclaimer Appraisals
GovernmentAuction utilizes Retail Replacement Value Appraisals, which are the most common. These types of evaluations are written for insurance needs. This would be the cost to replace the jewelry, with an item of equal quality and kind, considered to be the current market price or the replacement value. This type of appraisal is done to protect you in the event of damage or loss of a valuable item. Our appraisals are conducted by and independent 3rd Party appraisal firm that utilizes Certified GIA Gemologist, if more information is needed you are welcome to contact them directly: American International Gemologists info@AIGLABS.com or Westfield Jewelry Appraisers info@westfieldjewelryappraisers.com . Appraisals should be used for verification of gemstone and/or metal weight, size, and grade only, not actual value. Appraisal value should be considered for insurance purposes only, not actual value, as price varies greatly from retail locations throughout the world. Items should not be purchased with the expectation to resell for appraisal price or for profit.

Right to refuse bid
Auctioneer reserves the right to reject any bid. The highest bidder as determined by the auctioneer shall be the purchaser. In the case of a disputed bid, the auctioneer shall have sole discretion in determining the purchaser and may also, at his or her election, withdraw the lot or reoffer the lot for sale. The auctioneer shall have sole discretion to refuse any bid, or refuse to acknowledge any bidder.

The Auctioneer's decision to refuse any bid, advance the bidding in any manner, withdraw a Lot, determine a successful bidder, continue the bidding, to cancel a sale and reoffer and resell an item in dispute, is conclusive, absolute and final.

In no event will the liability of Government Auction to any purchaser with respect to any item exceed the purchase price actually paid by such purchaser for such item.

All goods must be paid within 3 working days from close of auction. All winning bidders will be notified via email of their total payment amount and will be supplied a PayPal link to use for credit card payments. We accept all major credit cards through PayPal, cashier's checks, money orders, and bank wires for payment of your total amount due.
