4. At the Auction
4.1 Reserve Auction
4.1.1 This is a Reserve auction. Pre-sale estimates are intended as guides for prospective Bidders and Prop Store makes no representation or warranty of the anticipated selling price of any Property. No estimate anywhere in any media by Prop Store of the selling price may be relied upon as a prediction of the actual selling price. Notwithstanding the same, until the start of the Auction by the auctioneer, Prop Store may, in its sole discretion, withdraw any Lot from sale at Auction.
4.1.2 The majority of the Lots in this auction are sold without a Reserve. Pre-sale estimates are intended as guides for prospective bidders only. Estimates do not indicate the sales price for any Lot. Certain Lots are sold with a Reserve. A Reserve is the confidential minimum price the Consignor is willing to accept to sell the Lot. These Lots will only be sold if the Reserve is met.
4.2 Bidding Process
4.2.1. Prop Store reserves the right to refuse admission and/or participation at the Auction and to reject any bid.
4.2.2. Bids may not be accepted from unregistered bidders and all Bidders must be 18 or over. All bids must be made in US dollars.

When making a bid, every Bidder acknowledges that such bid is a binding offer to buy the Lot at that price (plus the Buyer’s Premium, the Buyer’s Expenses (if applicable), Credit Card Fee (if applicable), all applicable taxes, and any and all shipping charges, storage fees and/or other costs).
4.2.4. All bids are by individual Lot unless the auctioneer states to the contrary during the live Auction. Lots will usually be sold in their numbered sequence, unless the auctioneer announces otherwise at the Auction.
4.2.5. The auctioneer may accept bids from Bidders present in the sale room, via telephone, or via online at the time of the Auction. The auctioneer may also accept proxy or absentee bids delivered to Prop Store before the start of the Auction.

Proxy or absentee bids will be executed at the lowest possible price. If Prop Store receives proxy or absentee bids on a particular Lot for identical maximum bids, and at the Auction these are the highest bids on the Lot, it will be sold to the Bidder whose written bid was first received by Prop Store.
4.2.6. Any Bidder wishing to place bids at the time of the Auction via telephone must provide to Prop Store a list of Lots on which they intend to bid at least 24 hours before the start of the Auction.

If any dispute arises after the sale, then, in the absence of any evidence to the contrary the sale record maintained by the auctioneer will be conclusive.
4.3.2. The auctioneer shall have sole discretion to accept or decline any bid.
4.3.3. Subject to the auctioneer’s reasonable discretion, the Bidder placing the highest bid accepted by the auctioneer will be the Buyer and the striking of his hammer marks the acceptance of the highest bid and the conclusion of a contract for sale between the Seller and the Buyer. Each Bidder understands and agrees that Prop Store, as auctioneer, is not a party to any contract for sale that results from the Auction. Risk and responsibility for the Lot (including frames or glass where relevant) passes to the Buyer upon the fall of the hammer and the Buyer should arrange insurance cover for the Lot if required.

Prop Store may, in its sole discretion, apply any proceeds of sale then due or thereafter becoming due to the Buyer from Prop Store or any affiliated company, or any payment made by the Buyer to Prop Store or any affiliated company, where or not intended to reduce the Buyer’s obligations with respect to the unpaid item or items, to the deficiency and any other amounts due to Prop Store or any affiliated companies. In addition, a defaulting Buyer will be deemed to have granted and assigned to Prop Store and its affiliated companies, a continuing security interest of first priority in any property or money owing to such Buyer in our possession or in the possession of any of its affiliated companies, and Prop Store may retain and apply such property or money as collateral security for the obligations due to Prop Store or to any affiliated company.

5.3.1. The Buyer is solely responsible for all shipping, handling, and delivery costs. Prop Store can help you arrange packing and shipping through FedEx for smaller items or PackAir AirFreight, Inc. for larger items, or you can use your own licensed carrier, approved by Prop Store. Please contact Prop Store at +1 818-727-7829 or [email protected] for further details. Please be advised that certain Lots are highly fragile and should be handled with caution. Prop Store recommends that the Buyer collect such Lots locally from Prop Store, if possible. Prop Store does not warranty the Lots against and shall have no liability for any damage that any Lot may incur or suffer during the shipping or delivery process.
5.3.2. After 14 days after close of Auction, if the Buyer has not made arrangements for and paid the shipping cost of the Lots purchased, or has otherwise failed to collect the Lots, a storage fee of 3% of the Hammer Price per month shall be charged to the Buyer. If the Buyer has failed to pay the Purchase Price and the cost of shipping and handling, Prop Store, at its option may cancel the sale.
5.3.3. It is the Buyer’s sole obligation and responsibility to be aware of, to comply with, and to pay for all relevant import duties, taxes, VAT, customs and other fees charged in the area of delivery. Prop Store will ship all packages with the full value of the Lot declared. The Buyer understands and agrees that Prop Store shall have no obligation or responsibility for any import duties, taxes, VAT, customs, shipping or other charges for the Lots shipped. Failure by the Buyer to pay all necessary amounts may result in the relevant authorities returning the Lot to Prop Store and in those circumstances the Buyer will be charged and will pay storage cost and Prop Store’s additional reasonable costs and expenses.
5.3.4. It is further the Buyer’s sole obligation and responsibility to ensure that any Lot purchased from Prop Store enters the shipping location lawfully, that all duties and taxes have been paid and that all required export procedures, regulations, and laws were properly complied with. The Buyer understands and agrees that Prop Store shall have no obligation or responsibility for complying with any export procedures, regulations, or laws applicable to the Lot.
5.3.5. Unless otherwise agreed by Prop Store in writing, the fact that the Buyer wishes to apply for an export license does not affect or postpone the Buyer’s obligation to make payment in accordance with Prop Store’s payment terms nor Prop Store’s right to charge interest or storage charges on late payment. Prop Store shall not be obligated to rescind or cancel a sale nor to refund any monies paid by the Buyer to Prop Store as a result of or related to the Buyer’s failure or inability to obtain an export license.
5.3.6. Should the Buyer make own arrangements with third parties for shipping, handling, or delivery of any Lots, Prop Store shall have and accepts no liability or responsibility for the acts or omissions of any such third parties. Similarly, where Prop Store suggests other handlers, packers or carriers, its suggestions are made on the basis of its general experience of such parties in the past. Although Prop Store shall use reasonable efforts to take care when selecting third parties for shipping and delivery, and the Buyer understands and agrees that Prop Store is not responsible to any person to whom it has made a recommendation for the acts or omissions of the third party concerned.
5.4 Prop Store's Liability
5.4.1. Except where expressly stated to the contrary above, under no circumstance will Prop Store or the Seller incur liability to any Bidder or Buyer in excess of the purchase price actually paid.
5.4.2. Prop Store will not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay in performance of, any of its obligations under these Conditions that is caused by an event outside its control, that being any act or event beyond Prop Store’s reasonable control, including without limitation strikes, lockouts or other industrial action by third parties, civil commotion, riot, invasion, terrorist attack or threat of terrorist attack, war (whether declared or not) or threat or preparation for war, fire, explosion, storm, flood, earthquake, subsidence, epidemic or other natural disaster, or failure of public or private telecommunications networks. Prop Store’s obligations shall be suspended and time for performance extended until such time as the event outside its control is over, following which a new collection or shipping date can be agreed.
6. Terms of Guarantee of Attribution
6.1. Prop Store warrants that the provenance of each Lot is the film production stated in the title block of that Lot in the Auction catalog, subject to any revisions (which may be given in writing or online before or during the Auction at which the Lot is purchased by the Buyer); this is Prop Store's Guarantee of Attribution. Buyers should be aware that multiple examples of props and costumes are frequently used during production and it is often impossible to determine whether a specific prop has been used on-camera. Any specific on-camera usage known to Prop Store will be noted within the description, but no warranties are given by Prop Store on that description.
6.2. If a Buyer demonstrates to Prop Store’s reasonable satisfaction that the Guarantee of Attribution is materially incorrect, the sale will be rescinded if the Lot is returned to Prop Store in the same condition in which it was at the time of sale. In order to satisfy Prop Store that the Guarantee of Attribution is materially incorrect, Prop Store reserves the right to require the Buyer to obtain, at the Buyer’s expense, the opinion of two experts in the field, mutually acceptable to Prop Store and the Buyer.
6.3. In the event a sale is rescinded in accordance with Paragraph 5.2, Prop Store shall repay to the Buyer the Purchase Price. Repayment of the Purchase Price shall be the Buyer’s sole remedy, to the exclusion of all other remedies to the extent permissible at law. It is specifically understood that this will be considered the sole remedy.
