Buyers may either pick up their items at the designated auction site personally or can arrange for a third party logistics firm to manage the removal process for them. If someone other than the registered buyer at the sale is designated to pick up those purchased assets, the buyer must:
1) Contract with an independent logistics firm or other representative who will dismantle, crate, pack, or ship your purchased items.
2) Coordinate the removal of those purchased items to meet the time deadlines indicated on this page.
3) Submit an "Agent Release Authorization" form which will allow The Branford Group to release items to a third party contractor for shipping, crating or packing purposes. Since The Branford Group does not ship the items, we do not obtain/prepare any export licenses/documents. *The Branford Group finds and displays one or more local logistics service providers who understand our removal process, offer specific services, and have certain skills and capacities. We offer this service to you without representations or warranties of any kind whatsoever.
