The $25 is NOT CHARGED, it is merely held by your Credit Card Company for the length of up 3 to 7 days. The $25 is Authorized Only, if you make purchases on an auction you will not be charged, this is a complete separate transaction and you will have no charges against your account.

Worley Auctioneers & Appraisers does not ship items.
However we do recognize that many bidders will be in need of a shipping service.
As a courtesy to our bidders in need of a shipping company our auction managers will provide a few options for local shippers in the area of each particular auction.
Bidders may arrange shipping / moving with the company of their choosing.
Be sure to have the Lot numbers and information on all of the items you plan to bid on so they will be able to give you an accurate estimate for moving or shipping. After you have won your items you will need to fill out the 3rd party release form. You must provide the completed form to the auction manager via email, as well as the person that will be in receipt of your items. No items will be released to a third party without a copy of the third party release form and proper Identification.
Once items are released by the winning bidder to a third party, such as a shipping or moving company, Penny Worley Auctioneers & Appraisers, Inc., assumes no liability.
