Shipping & Delivery

Locations

Pick up locations vary from auction to auction. Location is noted in the auction description and also listed in the email buyers receive when invoices are sent.  If you are unsure please refer to the auction description or call the office.

Pick-up in Person

Regular hours for pick up are:  Monday – Friday, from 9:00 a.m.–4:30 p.m. Please bring your own packing materials. We can not guarantee onsite help to assist with moving large items. All items must be picked up in their designated location, we can not transport items between locations for pickup. 

Westport Auction does not have weekend hours, and we are unable to accommodate any request to pick up on the weekend.

Note: Connecticut sales tax of 6.35% must be added to your invoice when picking up merchandise in person unless you have a valid resale number on file or a hired shipper is collecting your items.

Shipping and Delivery

As the buyer, you are responsible for arranging the pick up or delivery/shipment of all items purchased. Packaging of the item(s) must be handled by the shipper or individual collecting the item(s). 

Westport Auction has an established relationship with a  variety of third party shippers who will provide shipping quotes and services for your item(s).

 The designated pickup window for each auction is advertised prior to each auction. These dates are located in each lot description/condition and on all invoices. Storage fees will be applied to all items not picked up in the designated pickup window.

A separate payment to the shipping company will be necessary, as shipping is a transaction between you and your chosen shipper.

For more details please contact our office at (203) 222-3448.
