BUYER’S PREMIUM: Payment is accepted in cash, cashier’s check, debit card and credit card (credit cards cannot be used to purchase vehicles). A 12% Buyers Premium is added to the final bid amount when you pay with cash, debit card, or cashier’s check, with an additional 3% non-refundable fee for using a credit card. Fees are subject to change without notice. Certain lots may contain a notice that clearly states a different Buyer’s Premium (lower or higher). All purchases made using our on-line bidding service (all bids except live call bids), whether placed in person, on-line or via telephone, are subject to an additional on-line purchase fee which may vary based on the type of merchandise auctioned.. If the auction is On-line Only, Sierra waives the on-line purchase fee. Auctioneer reserves the right to limit on-line bidding on certain lots and for certain Buyers. Unless otherwise stated, no Buyer’s Premium applies on Bankruptcy items, however credit card and on-line bidding fees will still apply.

Your deposit will be refunded to you upon full payment for your purchases or may be applied to the payment of your purchases.
