Stefek’s Buyer FAQs

What is a Buyer’s Premium?

A buyer’s premium is an additional fee based on a percentage of the hammer price and the payment method. Buyer’s premium pays for the services the auction house provides to make the items available for purchase.

How Can We Help You? What is your question?

Should I ask for a Condition Report of Items I am Bidding on?

As a courtesy, Stefek’s provides a general condition report for all items in our auction catalogs. All condition reports are based on “age appropriate wear” and buyers should note that an item that “Appears fine” may have some wear. Stefek’s staff will always provide a detailed condition report outlining any and all damage and wear upon request of the buyer. All buyers are encouraged to request a detailed condition report to ensure satisfaction of their purchase.
