Preferred PAck and Ship Provider
Pack and ship service is best for medium to small packages. While pack and ship services can handle just about anything they are sometimes more expensive for larger items, however, items often arrive more quickly than with a blanket shipper. Just as with blanket shipping the cost is determined by the size, weight, and distance of the shipment. Payment is required in advance.
This is the only method for international shipments.
One note on Pack and Ship services. With the UPS store your purchase is covered by their Pack and Ship Guarantee
The Ups Store – Bob Shulman (Owner)
After each auction the UPS store will schedule a Pickup from Circle. Typically this takes place 5-10 days after the auction closes. The UPS store will retrieve your items from us at no charge and ship them to you with your preferred method.
Preferred Blanket Shippers
This service is best for mid-sized to large furniture and objects. Blanket wrap shipping is a ground shipping service and only available within the contiguous United States.
Blanket Shippers wrap your items individually to protect them during shipping. This service delivers the piece(s) directly to your final destination. The cost of blanket shipping is determined by the size, weight, and distance to your location.
Premier is a great provider for transferring large items. This service is economical, but shipping times may be longer than some other options.
