Claire and Michael Higgins Antiques commits itself to offering genuine items and guarantees each of them to be correctly represented as to age, origin, and condition. The sales description always includes any damage or restoration we detect.
Items are shipped primarily by USPS Priority Mail, tracked. We may use UPS or FedEx if deemed better. All insurance, shipping and handling charges are the responsibility of the purchaser and will be added to the price of the object shipped. Domestic shipment costs begin about $12. For international shipping we recommend our local UPS store for packing and shipping. We deliver the items to the UPS store and they contract with the buyer for shipping.
All sales within the state of Georgia will be subject to sales tax unless the purchaser can submit a valid resale certificate at the time of purchase.
Sales are final with the following two exceptions:
– Any item may be unconditionally returned within 7 days of the date of receipt on the condition that the purchaser advises us of his/her desire to return the object after his/her initial inspection. The purchaser will be responsible for the payment of packing, freight and insurance charges. Refunds will be issued after our receipt of the object in the same condition as when it was shipped.
-In addition, if any item is clearly proven not to be as described, we will refund, exchange or discount within 90 days of purchase if returned in the same condition as sold. We may depending on circumstances refund shipping costs.
– We try to resolve any uncertainties before, not after a sale. We encourage clients to call or email with unanswered questions.
Payment and Delivery
Our preference for new buyers is to use paypal (to firstname.lastname@example.org) or pay by check. Please contact us for more information. Shipping small or medium sized paintings anywhere in CONUS is safe and inexpensive. Paintings are easy to pack. In Georgia, one can pick up paintings at no charge at Scotts monthly market. We can deliver in Atlanta Metro area for very little. The same holds for porcelain but it is fragile so packing is a bit more expensive.
