Shipping Methods and Delivery Timeline

All shipments for Buy Now products are estimated to be received within 4-7 weeks, unless otherwise noted in the checkout process. Please contact our Client Service team at orders@sothebys.com or 212.606.7000 with any questions regarding the status of your shipment.

White Glove Shipping

· Estimated delivery for orders shipped via White Glove shipping is 4-7 weeks from the date the order is placed.

· White Glove shipping is used for fine art, furniture, large and/or heavy decorative objects, some rugs and objects that require custom crating due to the fragility of the material.

· White Glove shippers organize the pickup from the seller, pick up the item from the seller, pack the item, transport the item, contact you to schedule delivery and deliver the item. Insurance is included.

· White Glove shippers cannot make any modifications to your home. Objects requiring installation (e.g., a lighting fixture or hanging decorative object) may require a professional electrician or contractor/handyman at your expense.

· Measure doorways, stairways and elevators prior to purchase to make sure that the item being purchased can be delivered into your home. Upon pickup and delivery, White Glove shippers will not dismantle an item for reassembly. Items that are unable to be delivered for any reason will be returned to the seller, and you will be responsible for all return shipping charges, including shipping insurance.

Estimated Delivery Time

Items are being shipped directly from the seller or a storage facility selected by the seller, and transported by a shipper that you select at checkout. Our dedicated shipping and logistics team works with sellers, shippers and buyers to facilitate pickups and deliveries. Delivery times are estimated and cannot be guaranteed.

Return Policy

Return Policy

From the date of delivery, buyers have two calendar days (excluding U.S. federal holidays) to inspect the object and contact Client Service at orders@sothebys.com or 212.606.7000 to request a Return Authorization. When contacting us to initiate a return, please include:

• The reason for the return

• Your order number (find this in your order confirmation email)

Once we review your return request, we will send you an email with further instructions.

Items listed as final sale are ineligible for return. If an item is final sale, that information will be included in the "Details" section on the product page. Most watches and pieces of fine jewelry are listed as final sale, so please refer to the product details for information on eligibility for return.

Each returned item must be received in the condition it was in when shipped. Note that all returns will be inspected upon receipt for authenticity and condition. We reserve the right to decline any return or deduct from amounts refundable for any damage to property.

A refund of the purchase price paid, less any charges for which the buyer is responsible, will be processed upon confirmation that the item has been returned to the seller. Refunded amounts will be credited to the payment method used to purchase the relevant item.

We are unable to honor a request for return that is received more than two calendar days after delivery.
