Shipping and Pick-up

Items purchased during the auction via live in-person bidding, in-house absentee bids, and telephone bids are available for payment and pickup immediately. Items purchased during the auction online via Live Auctioneers, Invaluable, Clars Live! or BidSquare are available for payment and pickup beginning 9am the day after they are purchased. Excluding auction weekend, hours for pick-up are Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm.

Please note that buyers with out-of-state addresses who pick up in person must pay California sales tax.

We do not have in-house auction shipping or packing facilities. Shipping is at buyer’s cost. Please contact one of the shippers listed below, or a shipper of your choice, for an auction shipping quote prior to bidding. They will need the lot number, short description, approximate selling price and your shipping address. They will pick up, pack and ship your items to you.
