Shipping Services

Hodgins Art Auctions Ltd. does not undertake either packing or shipping in house. 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.

The following list of independent third-party shippers is provided as a convenience to our clients. We cannot be held responsible for the service or assume any liability for providing this information.

Please remember, shipping within Canada is expensive - especially for delicate and fragile items.

If you wish a friend or family member to pick up your purchases from our location please communicate the arrangements with us. We will not release any purchases without prior authorization.
