Assessment of condition
Most descriptions on our online auctions are provided by the sellers and bidders should rely solely on personal inspection and not on information listed on the site or otherwise provided by auctioneer or seller. Bidder's failure to inspect, or otherwise be fully informed as to the nature, quality, condition, quantity and size of any item will not constitute ground for any claim, adjustment, refund, termination of the contract for sale, or refusal to close the sale. BidNow.us/Albrecht Auction does its best to correct wrong descriptions but feel free to call our office to verify an items description or condition if you can not make it to the preview.
