Shipping (within Germany) In order to provide optimal service to our out-of-town customers, we offer to ship the auctioned items as long as the items are not too heavy, too large or too fragile for parcel shipment. Please keep in mind that shipping is a service on our part and we are not a mail order company. Our trained staff carefully pack the items and, in view of the hundreds of parcels that are packed after an auction and sent via various shipping service providers, make every effort to ensure that you receive your auctioned items in the mail as quickly as possible. We also refer to ? 447 BGB: Shipping is done on behalf and at the risk of the buyer. Postage and packaging will be charged at cost price and partially subsidized by the auction house Historia. If you have indicated a shipping request on your bid form, the invoice already includes the calculated shipping costs (without guarantee) to the billing address we have. If you did not check the shipping or pick-up boxes on your bid form, we assume that you would like to have the auctioned items shipped to you. The transfer of the shipping costs is considered as a shipping order. If you have a different delivery address, please inform us when placing your bid, as we will write and send the invoices including shipping costs immediately after the auction. All shipping costs are inclusive of VAT. Please note that even with online transfers it can take about 3 days until the money is credited to the escrow account. Only after we have received the money, the packages will be packed and shipped, which again can take a few days. Keep in mind that with every call of demand regarding your auctioned items, you are taking up valuable time in which your items could have been packed and/or shipped. For large, delicate and bulky objects as well as furniture - total dimensions over 120 cm and/or a total weight of over 31 kg, we offer you a delivery by the forwarding agency Reitmayer, which is in cooperation with us. Objects framed behind glass (especially paintings and graphics) will be unframed and shipped without glass due to the risk of damage. If the buyer insists on shipping with glass, this must be done in writing (please at the latest upon receipt of the invoice). Shipping with glass is exclusively at the risk of the buyer.
