Shipping & Handling - Invoice Total $5,001.00 to $25,000.00 = 3%

Shipping for most items will be provided via USPS Priority. Oversize or overweight packages may be mailed via UPS. Insurance is Mandatory - no item will be shipped without full insurance. Books may be shipped via USPS Media Mail.
It is the responsibility of all buyers to provide Lang’s with correct contact information and valid shipping address PRIOR TO PAYMENT. Only the address stated on Lang’s invoice will be used to ship your packages. If your shipping address differs on the Paypal payment from the address on your invoice, we will ship to the Lang’s invoice address.
Due to the large amount of auction lots requiring shipping service, receipt of auction items may take up to 4 weeks, longer for items requiring special packaging, including oversize or overweight items. International buyers may encounter longer receipt times. Book buyers may also experience longer receipt times due to Media Mail shipping.
Unusual packaging needs or special shipping arrangements outside of Lang’s abilities will be provided by a shipping service if Lang’s deems it necessary or it is requested by the purchaser.
If required insurance exceeds $5,000.00, the package will be mailed by USPS Registered Mail, which will extend the arrival date. US maximum insurance per package is $25,000.00, over this amount, we will mail in multiple packages.
Due to country specific USPS insurance maximums, an alternate carrier and/or multiple packages may be necessary to properly insure auction items, which may incur additional expense to be paid by the purchaser. Buyer requested International shipping to a country with a USPS insurance maximum below the purchase price of an item requires a signed release absolving Lang's from all liabilities, including damage, theft or loss.
Please be advised: Due to prior issues, shipping to a third party requires your signed release absolving Lang’s from ALL liabilities, including damage, loss, or theft of your auction lots. All items have been properly packaged and verified as to condition prior to shipment. However, since you are not the physical recipient, you must accept full responsibility for your items immediately upon delivery to the third party.
All items are shipped with temporary protective materials. Lure hooks have been covered for protection - all hook guards are to be removed immediately upon receipt.
PLEASE NOTE: Oversize or overweight packages will incur an additional surcharge. In most cases, this added charge will not be included in the first invoice. For overweight or oversize items, special packaging requirements, and/or International shipping, a second invoice with the additional charge will be emailed for payment. Full payment of all charges is required.
Phone lines are extremely busy after the auction. For shipping questions, if possible, please contact Lang’s by email: Shipping@LangsAuction.com or fax: 315-750-1720.
