Shipping

We are not able to offer any in-house packing and shipping service except for fine jewelry and coins shipped within the United States (shipped Brinks/FedEx for an additional fee, which includes insurance and requires signature for delivery - please check with Weschler's for specific pricing and restrictions). We are happy to recommend a number of local and national shipping specialists (a list of these shippers is included with invoices), but it is the responsibility of each purchaser to make their own shipping arrangements.

Keep in mind, property may not be released without receipt of purchase payment. In addition, once you have finalized shipping arrangements you must notify our shipping department to confirm your intentions. No property will be released without your confirmation with our office.

The purchaser acknowledges that if they use any Weschler's staff members to assist in moving, packing, or loading purchases, Weschler's will not be held liable for any damages that may occur.

Maryland Sales Tax is computed on the total purchase price, including Buyer's Premium. The purchaser will be required to pay the Sales Tax unless: (i) the property purchased is for resale and a valid Resale Tax number is presented to Weschler's business office at the time of payment, and the sales price is $200 or more; or (ii) the property is being shipped to a buyer located outside the state of Maryland by an ICC/USDOT licensed shipper/carrier.

Per our Terms of Sale, all property must be removed from our premises within four (4) business days post-sale from a Metro Timed Auction or ten (10) business days post-sale from a Capital Collections Auction.

For Metro Auctions, if items are not picked up by the following Monday after the auction or do not have firm shipping arrangements made, then a $5 storage fee per lot, per business day will be charged and your online account will be suspended. If paid items are not picked up/shipped within 10 days after the sale, Weschler's has the right to resell as abandoned property.

For Capital Collections Auctions, if items are not picked up within one (1) month following the sale, Weschler's has the right to charge storage fees and/or consider the items abandoned property.

If you have any questions about shipping or need a list of recommended shippers, please contact us between 9am and 4pm Monday thru Friday at [email protected] or 202-628-1281.
