FAQs

I paid for my items, now what?

At Woody Auction, we’re able to pack and ship most auction items. We package invoices in the order for which they were paid. Further, once your items have been packaged and shipping is determined, we will send you a second invoice via Live Auctioneers for the materials and shipping charges. Alternatively, Woody Auction accepts credit card payments over the phone at 316-747-2694.

How much does it cost to ship my items?

Woody Auction has secured better prices with UPS, and as always, we will continue to pass those discounts on to you. Likewise, we have sourced more affordable packaging supplies. As a result, our prices have gone down significantly. Please see the chart we use to get an idea of what we charge for materials.

What is the difference between ABCG and BPCG?

We will describe an item as ABCG, American Brilliant Cut Glass, if we are certain it is American. However, if the item is from a maker or had been attributed to the European market (i.e. Val St Lambert, Stevens & Williams), we will call these items BPCG, Brilliant Period Cut Glass.
