Given the volume and the unique nature of the lots we auction, in-house shipping directly from our gallery can take 4-6 weeks from date of payment.

For furniture and other items not eligible for in-house shipping, or if you require expedited shipping, we can provide you a list of alternative shipping agents. Click here to view the list.

Important note: Shipping estimates will only be provided before the auction or after payment has been made. We will only ship your package or release it to an alternative shipping agent after payment has cleared and we are in receipt of your Shipping and Release Authorization Form.
