We do not provide shipping services for large or bulky items. Items which we will ship, have a shipping charge in the listing. US Shipping charges will be assessed after the auction or you can use your own shipper. The ship to address must match the billing address of your payment method. 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. If there is no shipping charge listed, we probably will not ship in-house and will require you making arrangements with an outside shipper. (uniquesandantiques.com/shippers. 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 States 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 - Friday 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 handling fee or resale of items.
