Shipping of Purchases

We require prompt payment and removal of your purchases as stated in Paragraph 12 of the Conditions of Sale.

If you plan to pick up your purchases:

Please call ahead and we’ll make every effort to have your items ready. Our physical address is 1483 Route 6A, East Dennis, MA 02641. Our phone number is 508-385-3116. Pick up days are Mondays and Tuesdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

If you need to ship your items:

As a service and convenience, our shipping department can ship or arrange shipment of paid purchases.

In-house shipping: We provide packing and shipping services directly from our gallery, however, eligibility for in-house shipping is based on the item’s dimensions. In-house shipping is typically limited to small items, small paintings and rugs. Our staff can assist determining which items are eligible for in-house shipping.

You will be charged for shipping or carrier fees, packing/handling fees, and the required insurance. There is a minimum handling charge of $15.00 for all shipments.

The insurance charge is $.90 on every $100.00. Depending on the carrier, insurance limits may exist (ie: Federal Express will only insure up to $500). If you wish to waive the insurance, you must submit a waiver form to us.

All packages are sent with a signature-required delivery confirmation. If you want to waive the signature requirement, you must submit a waiver form to us.

We do not ship via the U.S. Postal Service unless special arrangements are made.

Alternative shipping agents: Large items or those with complex shipping needs are not eligible for in-house shipping. We will provide you a list of alternative shipping agents and will transfer your item(s) to your selected agent upon your approval.

Important notes:

We allow 7 to 10 business days for checks to clear our bank prior to packing and shipping, or releasing purchases to your chosen shipping agent.

Shipping estimates can be given only AFTER we receive your payment and form. View shipping form.

The packing and shipping of items by Eldred’s will be undertaken solely at our discretion. Eldred’s is not responsible for the acts or omissions of carriers or packers, whether or not recommended by us. Packing and handling of purchased items by us is at the entire risk of the purchaser.
