Auction Follow Up

crown auction

I have had many questions post auction about shipping and bidding problems that have occurred.

Crown Auctions is now doing the packing and shipping in house rather than having the UPS store do it. It may take a bit longer to receive your figures but it will cost just the cost of the packing materials and shipping itself. So you may wait a bit but your purchases will go out.

Another major item that the gallery wanted to address was the glitches in the on line bidding. This occurs with all auctions and even though we have come to think the Internet is the best and fastest that is a misnomer.

So in the next sale if you are wanting a particular figure, the auction house and I, both suggest that you register to bid on line, but also get set up with a direct phone to the auction live. The gallery is set up to take your call and then you will have no problem getting your bids in and not lose out on and item that you want.

I do not have any figures in my possession and can not make any deals to sell you a particular figure outside of the sale. That is how this works. Register for the sale and bid on the item you want. It is the only way.
