Auction type

Signature®:  Heritage Live!®:
After Internet bidding closes, live bidding will take place through www.HA.com/Live. Your secret maximum bid placed prior to the live event will compete against the live bids. To maximize your chances of winning, enter realistic secret maximum bids on our site. Many of our proxy bidders are successful at winning lots in these auctions, and usually below their secret maximum. You can also place last minute bids directly with us by e-mailing Bid@HA.com or calling 1-866-835-3243. (Important note: Due to software and Internet latency, live bids may not register in time, so enter realistic proxy bids.)

Slightly different bidding rules apply to the different session types:

Signature® Floor Sessions
Proxy bidding ends ten minutes prior to the session start time. Live Proxy bidding on Heritage Live starts 24 hours before the live session begins and continues through the session. During the live auction event, bidding in person is encouraged, and Heritage Live includes streaming audio and often video during the event.

Signature® Internet Session - No Floor or Phone Bidding (Mail, Fax, Internet, and Heritage Live)
Proxy bidding ends ten minutes prior to the session start time. Live Proxy bidding on Heritage Live starts 24 hours before the live session begins and continues through the session. Check the Time Remaining on individual lots for details. These auctions are presented only online, although the lots are normally available for viewing with the Floor Session lots.

Frequently asked questions

What is Heritage's return policy?

Heritage offers a three (3) day return policy for all Internet auctions (does not include Signature Auctions). Policy varies by type of Auction. See the "Additional Terms and Conditions" section of our Terms & Conditions.

Do I have to pay sales tax?

Lots delivered to you, or your representative are subject to all applicable sales/use taxes, if any, unless appropriate permits are on file with Auctioneer. Bidder agrees to pay Auctioneer the actual amount of tax due in the event that sales tax is not properly collected due to: 1) an expired, inaccurate, or inappropriate resale tax certificate and/or declaration, 2) an incorrect interpretation of the applicable statute, 3) or any other legitimate reason. The appropriate form or resale certificate must be on file at and verified by Auctioneer five days prior to Auction, or tax must be paid; only if such form or resale certificate is received by Auctioneer within 4 days after the Auction can a refund of tax paid be made. Lots from different Auctions may not be aggregated for sales tax purposes.

Heritage is required to collect sales tax in many states.

Here is a list of states where Heritage Auctions currently collects sales tax (sorted by category) or is scheduled to collect sales tax in the near future.

Heritage is not required to collect sales tax if you are buying for resale.

  1. If you are buying for resale, you can provide Heritage with your sales tax resale certificate.
  2. If you do not have a resale certificate, contact your respective state agency to see if you qualify.
