All sales are final. Terms of the sale are payment in full by cash, check (domestic clients), PayPal payment, or wire transfer of funds. Payment must be made within 7 days of the close of the auction or date of sale. The Seller reserves the right to assess a 1.5% per month late fee on all balances over 30 days past due. Personal checks must clear before chinchillas are released to the buyer. Buyer is responsible for any charges or costs to the Seller for returned checks. Seller reserves the right to refuse to accept personal checks from any party. Payments are to be made in US dollars only.
Default of Purchase
If any Buyer shall purchase a chinchilla(s) and fail to pay
for it in the manner described here within, the Seller shall
have, in addition to all other legal rights, the right to resell
the chinchilla(s), or at Seller's option, bring an action for
specific performance, in which event the defaulting Buyer agrees
to pay all costs of such suit, together with all reasonable
attorneys' fees and costs. In the event of a resale, the defaulting
buyer agrees to pay all costs of resale, plus any deficiency
between the original purchase price and the purchase price upon
resale. A relisting fee of $50 per chinchilla will be charged to Buyer for each chinchilla relisted on the site as a result of default of purchase.
The highest bidder at the close of the auction shall be the
Buyer. The Buyer is obligated to complete the transaction with
the Seller. By bidding on an item, you agree to be bound by
the conditions of sale included here within. Bids tendered after
the close of the auction are not valid grounds for dispute.
If any dispute arises among two or more bidders as to the determination
of the buyer at the close of the auction, the site administration
will make the final decision to either determine the successful
bidder, or to re-run an auction of the animal in question.
Live Chinchilla Warranties / Pre-purchase Exams
Seller makes no warranty, expressed or implied, as to any chinchilla's merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose. Unless otherwise stated in the animal description, no chinchillas in the sale have previously been in breeding, or are previously known by the Seller to be unhealthy. Buyers have the right and responsibility to examine, or have a representative or licensed veterinarian examine, any chinchilla the Buyer is interested in purchasing, and be satisfied with the results prior to making a purchase. Chinchillas.com will provide the contact information, upon request, of the herd veterinarian, or the buyer may hire a licensed veterinarian of his or her choice. The cost of farm calls, office visits, exams, labs, cultures, or other testing that the buyer might like to have done is the Buyer's responsibility.
Title / Guarantees / Board
Title of ownership and all responsibilities of ownership pass to the Buyer upon close of the auction / time of sale. The Buyer may take possession of the chinchilla(s) as soon as payment has been made in full. Buyer must take possession of his/her chinchilla(s) within 90 days of the date of purchase. Seller may assist the Buyer with shipping or delivery, but ultimately the responsibility of taking possession of and/or making arrangements for transportation of the chinchilla(s) is the Buyer's responsibility. Seller will guarantee the life and health of the chinchilla(s) for a period of up to 90 days from the date of sale, while the chinchilla(s) remains in the possession of Chinchillas.com, OR until the buyer takes possession, whichever comes first. When chinchillas are being shipped by air by Chinchillas.com, buyer takes possession at the moment the chinchillas are consigned to the airlines. If a chinchilla dies, fur chews, maloccludes, or otherwise falls into poor health while in possession of Chinchillas.com, up to 90 days from the date of sale, Seller will issue a credit to the Buyer for the purchase price of the chinchilla. Credits must be used within 1 year from issue. Please note - Chinchillas.com does not guarantee the life or health of a chinchilla(s) after it leaves the possession of Chinchillas.com. Board is free for 30 days, starting on the date of purchase for chinchillas purchased from the Sales Gallery, or the date the Auction closes for chinchillas purchased on the Auction. After the first 30 days, board is .70 cents per day per chinchilla. If bidder/buyer does not complete the purchase and/or take receipt of their chinchilla(s), the 30 days free board does not apply, and board will accrue beginning on the date of purchase/Auction close.
Regulations / Taxes
Buyers should contact their governments regarding import regulations, and the rules governing chinchilla ownership before making a purchase. Some countries do not allow the importation of live chinchillas. It is the Buyer's responsibility to be informed of relevant rules and regulations pertaining to the import and ownership of live chinchillas before purchasing chinchillas from Chinchillas.com. It is the Buyer's responsibility to pay any applicable import or other taxes or fees.
