They make international transactions so easy!
From start to finish, Wilnitsky Auctions made bidding and winning an international auction incredibly easy! I often bid on European auctions and always dread the shipping process. But, they assisted with every step and I never had to work harder than to pay for the shipping when it came time! I will definitely watch and bid in their auctions in the future!

Simple solution for remote bidders
My wife noticed a painting in the Wilnitsky window on a recent trip to Vienna. Unfortunately they were closed on Sunday, but on a whim a year later I contacted them and found the painting was still available and about to be auctioned on LiveAuction. I signed up, bid and won! Wilnitsky handled the fulfillment by email and PayPal. They offered a list of recommended shippers, and after selecting one, the shipper picked up the painting, packaged it in a most secure way, and shipped it the same day. I received it here in the US a week later! A totally satisfying experience.

I WAS DELIGHTED
Wilnitsky Auctions and their recommended shipper were easy and professional. I had a painting shipped to the States, and I found it a "no problem" experience.
