First time bidding at Main Auction Galleries and everything was Super from ease of bidding, ease of paying on line and working with one of their listed shippers. What more can a buyer ask for? Hope to find more treasures with them again! Thank you!

It's hard for me to trust. I also need to work on being patient. Due to a series of events I decided to check up on a very large painting that I won. What I found was a hard working, on the ball, 5th generation auction house. Along with the same work ethic shipper called Safe Ship. My with went to see them in Cincinnati. We live in south Florida. We can tell you by 1st hand experience that both places have one intention in mind. You the client. We can honestly say they are some of the best and honest people to work with. It's because they care about everything in detail. Communication was excellent along with the quality items. Safe Ship went far beyond a regular shipper and if anyone chooses them, you definitely made the right decision. I read some negative reviews. They are absolutely incorrect. I think they posted the review in the wrong place. So keep that in mind when researching. Both the auction house and Safe Ship are very conscience. Willing to make every effort to satisfy their client. It's great to see and walk away knowing how we'll you were taken care of. Thank you to both establishments. Captain Gregory
