Available payment options
Shipping fees listed with each lot pertain to domestic shipping only. International bidders are subject to higher shipping fees. Please inquire about shipping to a particular country before the start of the auction. Purchased items will be shipped on a first paid basis and may take up to ten (10) business days for said shipment to leave our (Napoleons Fine Art LLC.) auction house. For time sensitive shipments, we (Napoleons Fine Art LLC) will expedite payment processing and shipping for a nominal fee. All domestic mainland items are shipped via USPS Priority Flat rate unless otherwise specified or requested by the customer. All international shipments are shipped via USPS Express Mail International, Priority Mail International, or UPS Worldwide Express/Expedited (depending on the destination country rules and regulations regarding prohibited items and declared value). For items that are too large for in-house shipment, a gallery approved vendor will be provided on the customer's invoice for crate and freight services. For framed artwork, since we (Napoleons Fine Art LLC.) sell the item based on being framed and matted prior to being consigned to the gallery, we (Napoleons Fine Art LLC) will not remove any item from the frame and/or matting, unless there is damage to a front glass panel prior to being sold. Sometimes there may be damage or alteration to the artwork that is not visible once the art has been framed. However, upon removal from the frame it has been discovered on multiple occasions that there was a flaw hidden from view, causing the item to be returned due to misrepresentation. We (Napoleons Fine Art LLC.) will no longer provide frame removal service, nor will we (Napoleons Fine Art LLC) assume responsibility of the artwork's condition if the winning bidder decides to have the art removed from the frame by a third-party shipper. Insurance: All items are insured for the full purchase amount less carrier shipping charges, or the maximum amount allowed by the carrier and/or country of destination. However, insurance is not included in the specified shipping amount listed in the item description. Insurance may be purchased at the rate of $1.50(US) per $100.00(US) of insurance coverage. All invoices are sent with insurance already factored into the shipping charge. The customer has the right to waive any insurance amount by providing written consent that the customer will not hold Napoleons Fine Art LLC or its shipping carriers responsible for damaged and/or lost shipments due to uninsured/under insured packages. In some instances, we (Napoleons Fine Art LLC) reserve the right to only ship certain items if insurance is purchased for the full amount of the item(s) being shipped. 15. Storage Fees: Oversize items, including items with " Local Pick Up or Third-Party Shipping Required " listed in the lot description must be removed from our gallery within 15 Days after the auction, or will be subject to a $10 per lot, per day storage fee, unless other arrangements are made with the gallery.
