Shipping charges depend on the value of the package, dimensional weight, and your specific location in relation to our company. Antiquities of California, LLC insures packages while in transit to the winning Bidders.
International packages may be subject to their respective country's customs, duties, and taxes and Bidders are responsible for paying this additional charge. Antiquities of California, LLC is not responsible for paying your customs, duties and taxes. Please make sure you update the auction house if there is any change in your shipping address. Antiquities of California, LLC will base the shipping fee on that address and will only ship to the address shown in your profile unless other arrangements are made prior to shipping your package. Please note that as the value of the package goes up shipping charges go up. Please contact the auction house directly if you want an advance quote for your shipping charge.

By registering for the auction, you agree that any disputes, shipping problems, authenticity questions or any other situation that might arise will be handled only via e-mail/phone communication. Any assumptions/disputes based on outside party opinions or comments will not be grounds for refunds or returns. You hereby acknowledge that you have done your own due-diligence prior to registering/bidding. We are more than happy and willing to resolve ANY issues whatsoever if handled amicably and without accusation or assumption.
By registering for the auction, you agree that if a return is approved, the refund amount will be for the final Hammer price ONLY. We do not refund Buyer's Premium or Shipping - both of which are costs incurred by Antiquities of California and are not part of any refunded merchandise.
By registering for the auction, you hereby agree that if a dispute should arise, you are not permitted to issue a chargeback for that dispute without first making every effort to resolve the situation directly with us. Chargebacks return the full amount which leaves Antiquities of California still due the Buyer's Premium and Shipping expenses. This only complicates matters.
