Shipping insurance is mandatory on all flat rate shipments at a rate of 1.5% of your invoice total.

We make every possible effort to avoid shipping damage claims. For damage in transit resulting in total loss, insurance covers the refund of your winning bid amount, buyer’s premium and any sales tax collected, but NOT your shipping and insurance cost.

International flat rate shipping is not available. International bidders, please be prepared to make arrangements with a 3rd party shipper of your choice (below is a list of shippers our customers have used before).

If you do not want to use our optional flat rate shipping, or the item you won is not eligible for this service, you must acquire 3rd party shipping services.
