Shipping Services


Hodgins Art Auctions Ltd. does not undertake either packing or shipping inhouse.  You must designate and arrange for the services of an independent shipper and you are responsible for all shipping and insurance expenses.  

The handling of sold lots is always handled in the same order as payment is received.  Please make sure that you pay for your purchases prior to contacting any shipper.  We cannot release goods that have not been paid for, nor can we release goods if we do not have your explicit authorization.
