Prospective Shippers:

Please Keep in Mind that for items purchased at Direct Auction Galleries, the responsibility of Getting items shipped from Here to There Belongs to the Buyer, not to Direct Auction Galleries. We only Ship In-House very Simple Items. Most Items will need to be Shipped via a Third Party. Those items denoted as "Third-Party Shipping Required" will be denoted in the Auction Catalogue, and on your Invoice. We encourage you to speak to us by Telephone Regarding Shipping Arrangements for your Auction Items at 773-465-3300. Otherwise, email us at hooboy64@gmail.com. That Being Said, Here is our list of Local Shippers:


1. UPS Store #6232 - Address: 3926 W. Touhy Ave., Lincolnwood, IL 60712. Phone: 847-674-1900 Contact Name: Paul. Email: store6232@theupsstore.com - Notes: This UPS store is our Primary Shipper. We can bring items for you to this UPS store at No Additional Cost to You. Paul is a Very Good Shipper. We have only Experienced 2 or 3 Breakages to Date out of a Very Large Number of Items Shipped. If your item is Extremely Fragile, you Might Request your Item to be Double-Boxed. Paul can get Very Busy, and often he is the Only one in the Store, so Sometimes he Cannot Answer the Phone, and Sometimes he is not the Best with his Emails. The Best Strategy for Getting Items Shipped by Him is to Authorize us to bring the Item Over to him First, then he can call you or email you with a quote for Shipping. Here is a Review from Yelp.com for this Store.

2. UPS Store #6975 - Address: 308 S. Jefferson St., Chicago, IL 60661. Phone: 312-207-8899 Contact Name: Bob Yee. Email: store6975@theupsstore.com - Notes: This UPS store is Quite Far from Us, so you May need to Pay Them a Little Extra for them to Pick up the Items from Us. Bob is also a Very Good Shipper. Check out his Store's 5-Star Reviews on Yelp.com. We have had no Breakages to Date out of about 25 Items Shipped Thus far. They are Shippers for Hindman Auctions as Well as Us. The only Complaints we have received is "They're a bit Disorganized", so you may need to Follow up with Them to Make Sure your Item is Being Shipped in a Timely Manner.

Finally, for Large Items that Cannot be Shipped by Conventional Means (Furniture and Heavy, Bulky Items) we recommend Choosing a Freight Shipper from www.uship.com. - Please keep in Mind that the Quality of these Freight Shippers can vary Greatly, so Choose Carefully. Uship is Kind of Like the Uber of Freight Shipping.

We hope this Provides you with some Good Tips on Local Shippers. If you have any thoughts, Comments or Suggestions on Shippers from the 60645 area code, feel free to email us at hooboy64@gmail.com. Your Feedback is always Welcomed.
