If you have indicated a shipping preference on your bid form, the invoice already includes the calculated shipping costs (without guarantee) to the billing address we have on file. If you did not mark either shipping or pickup on the bid form, we assume that you want the purchased items to be shipped to you. Including the shipping costs in the payment is considered a shipping order for us. If you have a different delivery address, please inform us when submitting the bid form, as we write and send invoices including shipping costs immediately after the auction. All shipping cost prices are stated inclusive of the statutory VAT of 19%.

In case of a subsequent request for shipping, please send an email with the desired items and the shipping address to

Please note that shipping is a service provided by us, and we are not a shipping company. Our trained staff carefully pack the items and strive to ensure that you receive your purchased items as quickly as possible by post, considering the hundreds of packages that are packed and sent via various shipping service providers after an auction. Furthermore, we refer to § 447 BGB: The shipment is made on behalf and at the risk of the buyer. Postage and packaging are charged at cost price and partially subsidized by Historia Auction House.

Please note that even with online transfers, it may take about 3 days for the credit to be received in the escrow account. Only after receipt of payment are the packages packed and dispatched, which may take a few more days. Keep in mind that with each call for information about your purchased goods, you take up valuable time during which your items could have been packed and/or shipped.

For large, fragile, and bulky items as well as furniture – total dimensions over 120 cm and/or a total weight of over 31 kg – we offer delivery through the shipping company Reitmayer, with which we cooperate. Paintings with dimensions over 50 x 60 cm are considered bulky goods. For large and heavy furniture pieces, a helper must be provided at the delivery location to assist the driver with unloading.

Objects framed behind glass (especially paintings and prints) are shipped without glass due to the risk of damage. If the buyer insists on shipping with glass, this requires written confirmation. Shipping with glass is done solely at the buyer’s risk.
