Auction Terms & Conditions CONDITION OF ITEMS Sheffield Auctions makes every effort to accurately describe all items offered in its sales. All damages seen at time of listing will be identified. Common nicks, scratches, Manufacturing issues, pinheads and wear may not be called. If an item is found to be different than listed, it will be announced and no absentee bids will be entered on item. HOWEVER, all items for sale are "as is," and it is the bidder's responsibility (present or absentee bidders) to determine the exact condition of each item.
If you DO NOT have internet access or access to our website, you can: Call us by phone to enter your bids at (606) 306-1792 OR send the number(s) of the item(s) desired, the name of the auction and the amount bid on each item to: Sheffield Auctions, 904 Snow School Rd, Albany, KY 42602.
