US Shipping charges are listed in the description. If a shipping charge is not listed, it requires shipping from an outside company. We work with some very qualified pack and ship companies, send us an email for a list.
We often do a New York City/ Brooklyn / Queens delivery run (Approx February 13)) and offer CURBSIDE delivery at fair rates. (Examples: $140 for a chair or table or lamp, $195 for multiple items and $375 or so for 5-10 items. We do not give quotes before the auction.) We also often use this delivery as a pickup opportunity for items for our next Auction. What do you have that we can sell for you?
We offer shipping as a convenience to the buyer. All of the items in our auctions are available for pickup at our location after the auction. There is NO CHARGE for picking your item up at our auction house, local taxes (6%) will apply to all items picked up.
We realize that sometimes item pick up is not possible, we are happy to work with your shipper or ship your items in house if we state a shipping charge at the stated rates plus insurance. Shipping charges are not negotiable, they are set fees. Please keep these charges in mind when bidding and bid a lower amount if necessary to cover these costs.
United States Shipping rates are stated on each item that we will ship. This cost includes packing labor, packing supplies, postage charges and up to $100 insurance is also included. International rates will be more, and may not be possible at all. Email us for more info.
We use United Sates Postal Service priority mail with delivery confirmation, FedEx Ground, UPS Ground and Freight shippers like Pilot Air and ABF.
Items will be shipped within 7 days (and usually much faster) of receiving good payment. We will send a shipping confirmation with tracking number via email.
Combining shipping: We do combine shipping costs for multiple item purchases, but we do also charge for packing and handling. Our quotes for shipping and packing after the auction are not negotiable. Please take the LISTED packing and shipping cost into account for each item. If you buy more than one item, the packing and shipping cost will likely be less as we combine items and lower charges.
Insurance: All items must ship with insurance for full auction price. The first $100 of insured is included in the quoted shipping charge. Additional insurance is charged at a rate of $1 per hundred dollars of value (i.e.. Insurance for $1,000 is $9)
Pickup or custom quote: This item can still be shipped but you must get a quote from an outside shipper. We cannot quote shipping charges for items that require a custom quote from an outside shipper. We are located 10 miles south of Philadelphia PA. (Aston PA 19014). Crating and shipping large items is expensive, at least several hundred dollars, please be informed as to the charges before bidding. Items are available for Monday - Thursday from 10am-5pm. We will store your item at our location for up to 21 days after the auction if you would like to pick up. We will work with your shipper if you choose to use a third-party shipping company. PAYMENT IS STILL REQUIRED within 7 days of the auction close, regardless of pick up time. Items left over 21 days will be subject to $5 per day storage fees or resale of items. Items still at our facility will be sold for storage 12 weeks following the auction
