Depending on the size of your collection, we will travel just about anywhere to pick up a collection. When we arrive, we will take an inventory, and then proceed to handle all of the packing and loading. Once at our facility, we will unpack them, inventory them and (assuming everything checks out against the list and grading), we will promptly create an inventory and a fair market evaluation of the collection. Once everything has been completed we will create and send you an Auction Listing Contract. The contract will contain information regarding how, when and where the sale of your items will take place. Once the auction is completed, we will provide you with a sales summary and provide payment as arranged in the sales agreement.
For smaller collections, we may also offer to pay for your shipping expenses to get your trains to us after we agree on the price based on your list and condition. Here you will need to pack them up and then email us with the address of pick up, the dimensions and weight of each box. The United States Postal Service (USPS) will come out and pick them up. There is no cost to you and you don’t have to take all the boxes to a shipper, stand in line, and pay for them. Once the contract has been signed by both parties we will begin advertising your items for sale. If there are any problems and we cannot agree on a revised price, you will need to send us a check or money order to cover the cost of shipping them back to you.
