If you have a problem, Bodnar will take care of you.The mail service that Bodnar's Auction Sales uses took 5 days to pack and ship out my items, which seemed pretty slow to me, but that isn't anything against Bodnar, as even he expressed he thought it would be quicker. But once I got my box of comics and instantly went through them one-by-one, I found that about 60 books had been water-damaged a while ago and even had mold in them. Some book's covers were stuck to the backing board... luckily the comics I had wanted were unharmed. So I instantly took some photos and contacted Bodnar's Auctions... after explaining and sending a few more photos, we came to an agreement and despite having to toss out quite a bit of books... I ended up a happy customer. Thanks again for your help!

Everything was good until the finish line...!?People obviously like this auctioneer because of the smooth way it ran for over ten hours, an exhausting day, very busy, fast, and exciting all at the same time..!! The prices were higher then expected for most of the items listed, so I know they did very well on this event, as most of them were in good to excellent condition... That being the case, I would have liked to have received the items that were over 60 years old, with very dry, brittle, unmatchable paint, shipped with even a little tissue paper between the 12 loose vehicles, instead of placed together in one clump and wrapped up in bubble wrap and peanuts...!! You must know the reason why collectors pay these idiotic prices for these items, right..??? It's for finding the diamonds in the rubble..!! Any paint chips on these, causes them to be less desirable, and places them in the rubble pile, it's all about originality and how they managed to get this far, and still manage to look like new, a very unlikely concept for anything these days, lol...! I'm just saying I would appreciate receiving the items in the condition I paid for, and then there's the premium, on top of that, and then the shipping on top of that, it's a lot to deal with when you find what you purchased, and who shipped them, are not on the same page, so to speak...! All I'm saying is treat them like you spent thousands of your own money, and you would like to get your monies worth...!! All in all it was a great auction, just need to feel the love...!!

I can not stress enough that shipping costs money. We do not make money with in-house shipping. we charge $10.00 per lot over the actual shipping charge. We discounted the $10.00 per lot and it went from $50.00 to $30.00. When you buy several large lots of diecast cars and it goes to the other end of the country, from NJ to CA it weighs 25 pounds and is 24 by 18 by 18, it will cost money to ship... Please go to USPS and get an estimate before bidding. I am sorry that you are unhappy but shipping it what it is and if it went to the UPS Store they would have charged you at least $75.00 to pack it on top of the $120.00 to ship.

We stand behind what we sell. This is the first we are hearing about this and we would take it back if it was brought to our attention. Instead of leaving a 3-star review you should have just got in touch with us and we would have worked with you.

Poor experience, over priced shippingMy experience with Bodnar's was very poor. I did get a staff member that finally got back to me after many attempts about making a payment with the auction house. Apparently if you pay on Live Auctioneers your payment is delayed, which is weird. That is exactly what happened. On ebay you get the items immediately. Now i understand this is a bank transfer, but it was cleared in 3 days, and I got the items weeks later... Furthermore I paid for $150 shipping and it was only $65 to ship the item? Just a terrible experience and I won't be bidding or buying from them again.

Watch your shipping charges.The auction I won was for 2 world's fair balloons. Uninflated. In it's original packaging. I was seriously shocked to be charged $18.68 shipping for a package that weighed at most 3 ounces. I can only imagine what it would have cost me if I won an item that actually weighed something.

Shocking.... nobody reads..... The shipping was $8.68.. It is clearly in the terms, all descriptions, read out loud at the start of the sale, and posted wherever else I can that there is a $10.00 handling fee for each lot we sell. We are not a shipping company or an ebay seller, we are an auction house that works on commission and helps by offering in-house shipping but this is not a free service. Boxes, bubble wrap, shipping peanuts, a crew to invoice, pull your item, pack it correctly, weight it, invoice you again for your shipping, properly tag it for the post office, send it to the post office, this all takes time and money. Any local UPS Store would have charged you double to do this if not triple to do the same job. We do not make any money on shipping, most sales we lose a little at the end of the day. I can't stress enough for buyers to investigate shipping charges prior to bidding because trust me you sometimes can't believe what it could cost to get something across this country. Once again the $10.00 handling fee is disclosed everywhere in our descriptions and it's unfair to get a poor feedback after the fact because you did not read the terms of the sale that you agreed to when you clicked on the yes to agree to the terms of the sale to be approved for the sale.

Awful experience Stay AwayI bought an item from Bodnars several weeks ago and still have not received it. I’ve called and left messages, they don’t return calls, I’ve emailed and they don’t respond. Their fees are extremely high and their shipping and handling charges are equally ridiculous. They tried to charge me $75 for a basic shipping fee for a small item. I’m pursuing a claim with my credit card company now. Huge headache. Terrible service. Never again with them.

We have been in touch with you over the phone and through email so please do not make up stories. You don’t like the amount of the shipping and it is the cheapest way to get it to you. You asked our office if we would pay your shipping.
