SHIPPING: Any items not picked up at the scheduled time will be packed to ship beginning July 6th, 2022, unless special arrangements have been made with Auctions & Appraisals of Illiana, LLC prior to or immediately after the close of the auction. Please keep in mind the volume and weight of the items you are purchasing if you intend to have shipped. If more than one item is purchased we will combine shipping. Shipping Charges will be added to your purchase invoice and will be billed to your credit card on file. We normally wrap, pack, box, measure & weigh all items and print labels for shipping. Shipping may take up to a week to prepare for postal facility depending on volume of items to pack and ship. Any of the items that are PICK-UP ONLY may be shipped by other means of transportation that is arranged by the buyer(s) and with the auction company - contact David or Tracy Shotts at 217-826-3333. If you as a buyer(s) do not understand whether or not an item is too large to ship, then call the auction company for a determination prior to bidding. We DO NOT crate, however, we will assist within reasonable request in meeting shippers and allowing them to pick up your large items.

Cost of shipping is not refundable. If you do not want insurance you must call and request no insurance! Uninsured items are shipped at your own risk. No refunds! No credit will be issued for non-insured items! All items will be insured at the rate of your final bid plus the buyer's premium.
We try to keep the shipping and handling fees to a minimum. We will combine items as much as possible. We cannot control the cost of shipping.
Please keep in mind shipping is expensive! Costs are affected by the size and weight of items as well as buyers' geographic location. The heavier & larger the package is, or the further away a buyer lives, the more expensive the shipping will be.
First Class Mail is usually approximately $3.50 - $6.00 for shipping FIRST CLASS MAIL in a small padded envelope.
PLEASE NOTE: Most of the coins have been inspected by a certified numismatist. There are coins that have not been inspected or graded. Some coins may have a grade on the package or sleeve or in the listing/lot title and this grade IS NOT to be relied upon, unless the grade is by a Certified Grading Company. Some grading companies do not guarantee their grades. Therefore, bidders should educate themselves about legitimate vs illegitimate grading services. Many times a seller will give his opinion on condition and many times its not correct. I do not mark the packages. Please use good judgment or call with questions. Thank you! By placing a bid you are entering a legal and binding contract. Non paying bidders will be added to the No bid list. No Returns or Chargebacks!
Time for shipping and handling materials is $1.50 PER MINUTE ****
Non-ship able items, and items for which we cannot obtain a box, or items weighing over 70lbs. are totally the responsibility of the winning bidder to contact us to arrange for shipping. Please call 217-826-3333 or email us at email@example.com to notify us of your shipper request. This means you as the winning bidder must make all arrangements to have the item picked up by a shipper to be packed and boxed, and subsequently shipped. Our responsibility ends once your designated carrier/shipper picks the item up from the auction house and signs for it. All correspondence from that point forward would be between you and your carrier/shipper.
