    I am selling a rather large number of rabbits over the next few weeks to a few people. I am wondering, if any of you who do the same (these are NZs for breeders), give any kind of guarantees, or money back type deals or just what kind of contracts or selling arrangements, as such that you make with your buyers?

    Thanks!

    We sell quite a few rabbits for show-pet and brood and we do offer a quarantee. It's so much easier to have all the cards laid out on the table to start with and then If anything happens you have something to fall back on as quidelines. And If you plan on selling many rabbits it's all about your reputation.

    Here is a draft-you can change things to suit your needs.

    We take pride in being a responsible breeder. We will not knowingly sell a sick or mean rabbit. Prices for rabbits can change according to the development of the rabbit. A NoN-Refundable deposit is required to hold any rabbit. We reserve the right to end a sale at any-time. If we end the sale we will refund your deposit. If you end the sale we keep the deposit.

    We only accept cash - money orders - certified checks. We no longer accept personal checks.

    All rabbits we sell are guaranteed to be free of any signs of illness or injuries at the time of sale. We guarantee the health of the rabbit for 7 days from the day the rabbit leaves our barn. If any health problems arise within the 7 days we are more than happy to work out a trade. If a problem arises we must be notified within 24 hours of the problem and within the first 7 days. The illness or death of the rabbit must not be due to the rabbit not being quarantined from other rabbits - predator attacks - unsafe or unsanitary housing - rough handling - stressful conditions - unproper feed changes or poor management. We will not be responsible for any Vet bills.

    A non-refundable deposit is required to place a hold on any rabbit(s).. Once stated you would like to purchase a rabbit. The deposit must be recieved within 7 days or the rabbit will go back up for sale. Even with a deposit rabbits are expected to be picked up at our barn within 2 weeks - If you wish to have your rabbit held longer than 2 weeks Please be aware that an xtra charge of 1.00 per day will be added to cover feed & board.(unless we have come to another agreement). If the rabbit is not picked up by the date agreed upon it will be placed back up for sale and the deposit will be forfeited.

    The buyer is responsible for examing the rabbit the day of pick-up. We will examine the rabbit to the best of our ability for any DQ but we are human and mistakes can be made.

    If for any reason you decide you can not keep the rabbit or no longer want the rabbit - we will not buy the rabbit back from you but If we have the cage space will accept the rabbit back and try to assist you in finding the rabbit a suitable home.

    Hope this helps.

    This does help a lot. Some of it will need to be changed for our purposes, but I think it will work great!

    Thanks!
