Read our Terms & Conditions carefully

Pay particular attention to  section 9 -- as it relates to our policy on transports, shipping, and pick-up.





Black Rock Galleries generally does not provide packing/crating nor shipping services for most items, with the exception of jewelry, coins and select single small items (shipped via U.S.P.S. Flat Rate post).




Black Rock Galleries is happy to pack coins, jewelry, and smalls (objects up to 12” in its largest dimension, allowing for appropriate packing and excluding all art) for shipping via USPS Priority Flat Rate Mail services (additional fees will apply). 

BRG does not ship artwork of any kind via U.S.P.S.

BRG only ships via the United States Postal Service’s (U.S.P.S.) Priority Flat Rate Mail service.


Because BRG is not in the shipping business, if you chose "BRG USPS PRIORITY FLAT RATE SHIPPING," please allow up to two weeks for BRG to process your shipping order.


Shipping Estimate. The initial shipping price on your invoice (and shown on the item description page) is an estimate only. Final shipping costs depend upon any combined shipping + insurance costs.

Processing. BRG charges final shipping costs (rate + insurance based on hammer price) to the card on file within two weeks of the auction closing. This will appear on your card as a separate charge from the auction invoice. Any problems processing shipping fees against the credit card on file will result in shipping delays.

Combined Shipping. BRG combines shipping whenever possible, so the estimate you see on your initial invoice may not reflect the final charges.

Items/lots may only be shipped to the address on your BRG account at the time of auction closing. NO EXCEPTIONS.

Tracking. BRG will send a confirmation email with the tracking information to the email on file once the shipping label is printed ... which can take up to two weeks after the auction closes.




Alternatively, over the years, we have come to work with several reputable shipping agencies that provide these services for our customers. You are free to use any third party shipping service you choose.

As a courtesy, we recommend any of the following...




Black Rock Galleries can recommend a couple of local UPS stores to assist with the shipping of your items. Our clients have used these two locations with much success. These locations will come to BRG, pick-up your lot(s), pack, and ship the items.



The UPS Store
of Milford
Contact:  Nayan Parikh
Tel:  203-783-1876

*Note: The Milford store typically picks-up lot(s) earmarked for UPS from BRG 1x p/week. UPS will take possession of the lot(s), sign for it/ them and then contact the winning bidder(s) to coordinate payment and shipment.


The UPS Store at
Olive Chapel Village

Contact: email
Tel: 919-367-2971

Please contact the UPS Stores directly for shipping estimates. Winning bidders will arrange final shipping payment directly with UPS.

Note: You are free to use any UPS Store of your choosing. The two stores listed above are reputable and regularly come to BRG. If you choose a different UPS Store, confirm with them that they are willing and able to come to BRG to pick-up/collect your lot(s), pack them, and ship them to you. BRG does not drop-off lot(s) to UPS.




Whether it’s a painting, sculpture or other fine work of art, it is commonly believed that the majority of losses (damage) in art occur during transit.

When it comes to transporting fine art purchase(s), our customers want to work with a shipper who specializes in properly packing/crating the works and handling their transportation to and from their destinations with the utmost of care.

Our customers have used and we can recommend the following services for their fine art shipping:

BRGMoving a billiards table (pool table) can be complicated and expensive.

Many people think they can avoid using a pool table specialist and the costs associated with them by trying to move the whole, in-tact pool table themselves.

They then realize the error of their ways and a whole new added expenditure ... having to dispose a broken pool table.

It's best to leave proper handling, moving, and care of billiards tables to the pool table pros who properly disassemble the table, carefully pack its pieces, and reassemble them at the new destination.

Our customers have had success with the following pool table movers:

Coastal Pool & Gameroom
tel: 800-258-0741

Coast to Coast (Pool Tables)
tel: 845-489-8154

A’s Pool Table
tel: 860-274-7508



BRGWhen it comes to bidding on and winning pianos at auction, the importance of hiring the right professional piano mover is critical. Finding third-party shippers who specialize in the safe and secure transportation of pianos might be a challenge. Professional piano movers ensure that these musical instruments safely arrive at their destination in the same condition as when they left the auction site.

These experts understand the unique requirements of pianos, from their delicate internal mechanisms to their exquisite exteriors. By entrusting your piano shipping needs to professionals, you not only safeguard your investment but also preserve the musical heritage of these instruments.

Our clients mentioned the following companies who handled their piano transportation needs with care and expertise, so we're passing the information to you.

Move It Piano
Tel: 973-568-6827

Haller Piano, LLC
Tel: 203-348-3183




BRGThere are certain jobs that are too big for ordinary moving pros.

Rigging, cranes, and tractors are sometimes necessary to get the job done -- particularly when it comes to oversized or massive sculptural works of bronze, stone, etc.

When dealing with these ultra-heavy, ultra-bulky pieces it's time to ensure you bring in the right professionals with the right equipment and expertise.

If you have need of such services to move and install your newly-acquired piece in the greater Southern NY and Southern CT region, we can recommend:

Angelo Rigging Company

(Mariano Brothers Specialty Moving)
Tel: 203-948-4076



Large, even "oversized" items, including fine antiques and stone based merchandise pose several challenges for ordinary shipping agencies when going long distances.

Size and weight are often the biggest factor in pricing and sourcing the right shipping agency to carefully handle your newly purchased items.

For such times and needs, our customers have used (and we can recommend) the following for their freight and large-item shipping services throughout the country:

Plycon Group
Tel: 1-888-655-2664
