If the grader determines, in its sole discretion and at any point in the process, that the submitted Declared Value has been understated relative to the market value of the item, the grader reserves the right to decline your stated Declared Value. If the grader declines the Declared Value of an item, the greader may require you to pay for the accurate Service Level as a condition of them completing the authentication and grading process as to the subject item. If you refuse, or are unable, to pay the grading company for the accurate Service Level, then the grader will return the item to you unprocessed at your cost, and you will be charged for the Service Level at which you submitted the item. The graders determination that you have understated the Declared Value will affect only the Service Level charge, it will not change the Declared Value for purposes of establishing the maximum item value for claim or shipping insurance purposes.

11. Grading

You acknowledge and agree that grading and authentication of items requires the individual judgment and professional opinion, which is subjective in nature, and can change from time to time. Therefore, Slabd offers no warranty or representation and shall have no liability whatsoever for the grade or determination of authenticity assigned to your card by the grader.

Graders have the right to refuse customer requests for any reason, including:  items being too fragile to handle or encapsulate, items being of suspicious authenticity, items being of a type they do not wish to grade or authenticate, or any other reason that may come up.  In some case you will be required to pay the full grading fee if your item is not authentic or has been tampered with (coloured, trimmed, restored, cleaned).

Slabd reserves the right to adjust services fees accordingly.  Graders can change their service fees with no notice and this will impact your service fee. Slabd endevours to charge you the most up-to-date fee prior to submission. However, due to world events and current demand this can change suddenly and you may be required to pay the difference in service fees if this occurs.
