Shipping

FOR LOTS WEIGHING LESS THAN 50 POUNDS: Lots purchased from Second Story Books through Invaluable will be packed and shipped by Second Story Books' inhouse shipping department. Purchasers are reminded that immediately upon winning the item, they assume all risks and responsibility for the item. Second Story Books takes great care to responsibly handle and pack all items being prepared for shipping. Second Story Books insures through Travelers Insurance, Inc. at a rate of $0.70 per $100 of value. Shipping and insurance charges are included in the Purchaser's invoice total. All items will be shipped to the address as it appears on the invoice unless the Purchaser notifies the Company in writing within 48 hours of the auction's end of a different shipping address or that the Purchaser will pick up the item(s) at Second Story Books' Rockville, Maryland location.

All items shipped domestically are fully insured and require direct signature (someone at the delivery address must sign). Second Story Books ships via UPS ground to domestic street addresses and via USPS First Class to domestic post office and rural boxes.

Second Story Books uses USPS Priority Flat Rate for most international shipments and DHL for large international shipments. International Purchasers will be responsible for any and all fees and expenses including, but not limited to customs duties and taxes. Second Story Books staff will, at the purchaser's request, initiate a claim with USPS if an item purchased from us appears to be delayed or lost by USPS. However, Second Story Books cannot control the rate at which packages are processed by USPS and its partners and cannot guarantee that a package will arrive by a particular date.

Lots will be shipped to Purchasers within 5 business days of receipt of full and cleared funds.

FOR LOTS WEIGHING 50 POUNDS OR MORE: Second Story Books does not ship lots weighing 50 pounds or more. The purchaser is therefore responsible for arranging the shipping or pickup of these items, and and of notifying Second Story Books of these arrangements.
NOTE: The state of Maryland has issued numerous restrictions to control the spread of the coronavirus. As long as these restrictions remain in place, we are not able to guarantee that purchases will be shipped within five business days of receipt of payment. We will, however, correspond promptly with any customer whose shipment might be delayed to notify them of the circumstances. We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience and understanding.

Purchasers who wish to engage a third-party shipper are responsible for contacting that shipper, making all arrangements and covering all costs, including, but not limited to, pick-up fees, packing, shipping, insurance and Maryland sales tax. Purchasers must sign a release form authorizing Second Story Books to release their purchased item(s) unpacked to the specified third-party shipper. Second Story Books requires that all third-party shippers pick up all purchased items within seven business days of the date of the Purchaser's invoice, provide sufficient packing material to responsibly transport the items being picked up and sign a receipt that includes images of the item(s) showing the condition of the item(s) when released by Second Story Books.
