11. Shipping/Pick-up/Storage:  PBMA highly recommends that bidders obtain shipping quotes prior to bidding.  If you would like to obtain a shipping quote prior to the auction, please contact PBMA by phone or email for a list of shippers, or contact your own shipper.  PBMA provides shipping lists only as a service to its clients and any such list should not be considered an endorsement of any shipping company.  Generally, PBMA does not pack or ship items for insurance reasons. Palm Beach Modern Auctions does not install, disassemble or remove complex/electrified items (i.e. chandeliers). When selecting a shipper, please ensure they are capable of handling this.  Final arrangements for shipping, and all costs associated with shipping, are the responsibility of the buyer.  Any agreement for shipping is a contract between the buyer and the shipper; PBMA is not a party to any such contract and expressly disclaims any responsibility thereunder.  No items will be released for shipping until PBMA receives payment in full and all payments have cleared.  Thereafter, items may be picked up at PBMA’s exhibition facility Monday through Friday from 10:00 A.M. – 4:00 P.M. by the winning bidders or their shippers.  Please call PBMA the day before you intend to pick-up any item.  If a shipper is picking up an item, please send PBMA an e-mail confirming the name of the shipper and the property to be released into the shipper’s possession, and providing PBMA permission to release the property to your shipper. All winning lots must be picked up within thirty (30) days following the close of the auction.  After this time, each lot will become subject to storage fees of not less than $5.00 per day.  PBMA has no duty to store any lot indefinitely.  After ninety (90) days following the close of the auction, any lot which is not picked up will be deemed abandoned by the buyer and will become the property of PBMA and may be disposed of by PBMA, in any manner it chooses, without notice and without recourse. You authorize PBMA to discard or sell any abandoned property and to keep any proceeds from the sale of abandoned property.  You hereby release PBMA of and from any claims related to such abandoned property (including without limitation claims for purchase price refunds, possession of such lot or other damages or losses).  You acknowledge and agree that PBMA is not responsible for damage or loss that occurs to abandoned property and that PBMA is not responsible for insuring abandoned property after the ninety (90) day retrieval period. You agree that this remedy is reasonable considering the costs PBMA would have to incur to continue to store and process purchased lots after an auction.
