Auction Shipping Request
We offer LIMITED services to the contiguous United States (aka “lower 48”). We do not ship to P.O. Boxes, Alaska, Hawaii or US Protectorates. We only offer boxing services to Canada. Canadian customers MUST fill out all customs paperwork & forms, and provide a label. We will provide box dimensions and weights only.
WE WILL ONLY SHIP TO ADDRESS ON FILE WITH BIDSPOTTER. If your address is incorrect in bidspotter, FIX IT. DO NOT ask us to ship to another address, we will only ship to address on file.
Our services include boxed, and limited palletized freight options. This does NOT include disassembly of assets.These services are also contingent on the location of the equipment and resources available at that location.. Shipping is subject to regulation. In situations where we do not have a forklift onsite, you will have to contract with another service provider to load your equipment.
BOXED SHIPMENT is available to support you with shipment services contracted by us for small purchases that can be boxed.
The Standard Processing Fees are as follows:
1 – 4 Lots: $15 per Lot.
5-9 Lots: $10 per Lot,
10 + Lots: $8 per Lot
This fee is based on items of a standard size and weight that can be easily boxed and shipped.
Oversized items and items in excess of 70lbs will incur an additional processing fee, and may need to be palletized and shipped via common carrier.
This fee does not include the incurred carrier rate charge that varies as a function of weight and size. We do not accept shipments involving you sending us a FedEx or UPS number, or labels. We will process the shipping directly with the carrier.
Pickup from our office is available for small hand carry items only. There will be a $50.00 – $500.00 fee for transport of above items to our warehouse, depending on size / quantity of items.
PALLETIZED SERVICE is available to prepare and load your pallet(s) onto a freight carrier, contracted by us. For all other services including you contracting with your own freight carrier, see below, THIRD PARTY PALLETIZING & CRATING. We will NOT offer palletizing services if you contract the freight carrier. Loading may occur at the sale premise or our main warehouse. This does NOT include disconnection of power / utilities from assets, disassembly of assets, knocking down racking, etc. It means placing your items onto a skid and preparing for shipment.
The Processing Fee is $100 per pallet and includes the pallet, packing, securing, labeling and forklift FOB loading.
THIRD-PARTY PALLETIZING & CRATING is available to support you with shipment services for larger purchases requiring pallets or crates. This service requires you to contact and contract your own freight carrier. We will not release your purchase to a third-party freight carrier without a Bill of Lading provided by you.
After purchase, please reply to the invoice email sent, requesting shipping, or email us @ email@example.com. Please provide your invoice number and bidder number.
Please note that for boxed shipping and palletizing, there will be a delay in processing and shipping your items. Most of our boxed shipping is done at our main facility in Hoffman Estates, Illinois. We do not transport items back to our main facility on a daily basis for shipping. Be advised that this delay may be up to four weeks or longer. If you need your purchases shipped immediately, we suggest you contract with a third-party packing and shipping company.
Please only fill out this form if you want shipping.
Unfortunately, due to the fact that we usually do not ship out from our sale sites, it is impossible for us to generate quotes or estimates for shipping. But we will always try to ship the most economical way possible.
Once submitted, we will automatically start preparing your item(s) for shipment. This cannot be undone!
