Shipping

Whether you wish to come in-person or to use a third party shipper, Freeman's offers assistance for collecting purchased property or dropping off items pre-approved for consignment.  

 

 

 

Unless otherwise arranged, all pick-ups and drop-offs take place at Freeman's loading dock at 1600 West Girard Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19130. 

 

In-Person Pick-up and Drop-Off
To help streamline our services and reduce your wait time, please schedule an appointment if you are planning to pick-up or deliver your property in person. Appointments require 24 hours advance notice. Only property that has been pre-approved by Freeman's for consignment is viable for drop-off. If you would like to submit an item for possible sale, please contact one of our Specialist Departments or submit a consignment inquiry. Property can only be released to a buyer after the invoice has been paid. For additional information on payment, please visit our payment page or contact postsale@freemansauction.com.   

 

You can also make an appointment by contacting your Department Representative or emailing shipping@freemansauction.com.

Frequently Asked Questions

Per our Terms and Conditions:

15. Unless exempted by law from the payment thereof, the buyer will be required to pay any and all federal excise tax and any state and/or local sales taxes, including where deliveries are to be made outside the state where a sale is conducted, which may be subject to a corresponding or compensating tax in another state.

All purchases made at Freeman’s, therefore, will be subject to the Pennsylvania State and Local sales tax--currently at a combined rate of 8%, which is applied to the hammer price plus buyer’s premium--unless the successful buyer submits the required tax exemption documentation. Those seeking exemption from sales tax must provide a valid certificate to Freeman’s prior to outgoing shipment.

In accordance with Pennsylvania State law, if Freeman’s or the buyer arranges for a lot/s to be shipped outside of Pennsylvania through an independent, third-party shipping company, Freeman’s must collect Pennsylvania sales tax on the lot/s irrespective of the property’s final destination. If the item is first delivered to any hired service provider (e.g. restorer, storage facility, etc.) located in Pennsylvania, Pennsylvania sales tax will still be applicable and invoiced, even if the lot will ultimately be shipped out-of-state.
