For your convenience, The San Rafael Auction Gallery offers optional in-house shipping on certain non-fragile small to medium items via USPS Priority Mail to the United States only.
In-house shipping insurance is mandatory on all in-house 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 in-house 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 in-house shipping, or our in-house shipping is not available for a lot you have won, you must acquire 3rd party shipping services.
