Shipping Instructions: We ship via USPS or UPS and occasionally Fedex for certain international orders. You may procure your own shipping label to send to us to use on your behalf or simply pay the shipping quote included on your invoice after you successfully win an item at auction. We work hard to keep our costs low as a partner wholesale shipper with USPS and UPS, so we get discounted rates. This is because your shipping is done by Connoisseur at the lowest cost possible amount including insurance up to $50 on USPS and $100 on UPS. Any items valued more than $50 or $100 respectively will be charged $1/$100 of insured value as an additional surcharge on your invoice to protect and insure your beautiful new prized possession(s) won at auction. Therefore, your invoice total from us includes all shipping and insurance charges. Please allow 3-4 weeks to receive your won items as a general rule dependent upon where you live in the world. Most of our shipping leaves the United States East Coast.
IMPORTANT: There will accordingly be three line-items on your winning bidder invoice to note:
1.) Online Transaction Fee - 2.5% credit card processing and 2.5% online hosting management
2.) Shipping, Packing, and Handling - these are primarily based upon USPS or UPS shipping tables, box and packing material rates, and labor. Those outside the U.S. may need to pay import, VAT, or excise taxes upon pickup of your won item.
3.) Insurance Coverage - this is to cover your prized possession in transit against damage, theft, or being lost and is included for FREE up to $50 in value via USPS and $100 in value via UPS. Additional value is covered at $1/$100 and will show up on your invoice.
After payment for article and freight is paid, your purchase(s) will be shipped within two to seven days
Checkout Date & Times: All transactions are processed immediately after each sale. .

Larger Items / Pickup NOTES: You may also provide your own-prepaid postage label or arrange your own shipping or pickup with a $50/docking/loading fee for local pickups. 24-48 hours are required for scheduling local pickups and it is recommended that you have your items shipped, especially due to COVID restrictions and regulations. uShip.com is a great way to get your larger furniture or painting items shipped via white-glove transport for a reasonable cost.
Items not coordinated for pickup within 45-days of winning the item at auction will be stored at $5/day until picked up or until the full value of the item has been absolved in storage fees at which point the item will become the property of Connoisseur to resell or dispose of as it deems best.
