Shipping costs are indicated in the description area of the catalog. These shipping charges are estimates and are only for the United States. Shipping charges include contract labor of packing, packing materials, insurance, signature delivery/confirmation and postage. Bidders from Hawaii, Alaska and Puerto Rico may incur further charges depending on the size and weight of the parcel. Foreign bidders are advised to inquire about shipping certain items before bidding to avoid surprises. Shipping will be computed on an individual basis after the completion of the sale; please do not pay before we compute your shipping charges. NOTE: You may also hire your own shipping agent to handle your shipping for you. Please contact Helm Auction before or after the auction ends to arrange for your agent to pick up your items.
Sensitive items such as frames with glass, pottery and other ceramics, as well as bulky items such as baskets will require double-boxing for safe transport during shipping. Auction Company attempts to fairly estimate shipping charges for these sensitive items in the lot description.
Auction Company will discuss shipping and Customs documents with foreign buyers for outside the U.S. for specific shipping instructions to include Customs declaration forms. Charges are for handling, packing materials, insurance and shipping fees. Items will be shipped primarily via FedEx and the United States Postal Service domestically, and in some cases UPS and USPS for foreign shipments. If you want them shipped another way, you must pay the additional charges. FedEx will not deliver to Post Office boxes, thus if your only method of receiving a shipment is via Post Office box, we will be limited in shipping via USPS only, which may or may not be more expensive than FedEx.
Estimated shipping charges found in lot descriptions now include signature/delivery confirmation. If you wish to save on shipping by not purchasing insurance and/or signature, you must email email@example.com stating your request. Paintings with glass cannot be insured. All items that are insurable will be insured. In the event of damage during shipping, claims must be filed promptly within 3 days of receiving your items. If items are damaged, please keep all packing materials and boxes, re-simulating the packages state as received, documenting the damage by extensively photographing and contacting Auction Company for further instructions. Without pictures of the damage and the packing materials, claims cannot be processed. Auction Company will file the claims. Helm Auction will explain what other information will be needed for filing claims. Claims will not be settled until shipping company has completed investigation. The investigation may involve actual presentation to the shipping service. Oversize items that need wooden crates will be charged for additional shipping charges. We will combine shipping if more than one item is purchased.
Buyers who do not wish to file claims on their damaged items will not receive a credit or reduction in price for their purchases. Insurance is purchased for all shipments in order to cover any possible damages item(s) might incur during freight.
