AT UNICORN AUCTIONS, WE ARE HAPPY TO ASSIST OUR CLIENTS
WITH SHIPPING OPTIONS, ANYWHERE IN THE UNITED STATES AS PERMITTED BY LAW.
INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING IS ALSO AVAILABLE ON A CASE-BY-CASE BASIS,
DEPENDING ON THE DESTINATION COUNTRY ANY OTHER DETERMINING
FACTORS. PLEASE REACH OUT IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN INTERNATIONAL
COST CAN VARY DEPENDING ON YOUR LOCATION. ALL ORDERS ARE RECEIVED

DUE TO THE FRAGILITY OF DIFFERENT TYPES OF SEALS AND BOTTLES OF
VARIOUS AGES AND CONDITIONS, UNICORN AUCTIONS IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR
ANY LEAKS OR COSMETIC DAMAGE THAT MAY OCCUR AFTER COLLECTION.
UNICORN AUCTIONS WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR LOST OR STOLEN PACKAGES.
Unicorn Auctions can not service any deliveries in the states of Delaware, Michigan, Mississippi & Utah -all purchases from residents of these 4 states will have to be picked up at our HQ in Chicago. We will be offering free storage to buyers in these states at our HQ until they, or an approved party, can come to collect the items.
AT UNICORN AUCTIONS, WE GO OUT OF OUR WAY TO PACKAGE ALL
PRODUCTS AS SAFELY AND SECURELY AS POSSIBLE. UNFORTUNATELY, COURIERS DO NOT OFFER ANY PROTECTION AGAINST BREAKAGE OR LOST ITEMS.
TO REMEDY THIS POTENTIAL PROBLEM, WE OFFER IN-HOUSE “BREAKAGE INSURANCE” FOR AN ADDITIONAL FEE (3% OF THE HAMMER PRICE).
“BREAKAGE INSURANCE” DOES NOT COVER LEAKS/COSMETIC DAMAGE, LOST OR STOLEN PACKAGES.
NOTE: FOR SHIPMENTS INSURED THROUGH OUR BREAKAGE INSURANCE, THE BUYER MUST CHECK SHIPMENTS IMMEDIATELY UPON DELIVERY AND NOTIFY US WITHIN 24 HOURS OF THE RECORDED DELIVERY DATE. IF NOTIFICATION OF THE BREAKAGE OR LOSS IS NOT RECEIVED WITHIN 24 HOURS OF THE DELIVERY, THE CLAIM WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED OR HONORED.
Q - How much does it cost to join Unicorn Auctions?
A - It is completely free to register to bid or sell with Unicorn Auctions.
Q - How does Unicorn Auctions work?
A - Unicorn Auctions is a full-service auction marketplace, where you can place bids, sell items, and much more. Our auctions take place 100% digitally, on our web bidding platform and our iOS/Android apps.
Q - How do I place a bid on a bottle?
Q - How do I sell a bottle?
A - You can sign up to consign any item in our mobile auction platform, or either of our apps (we have two, available for both iOS and Android). Or send us a message and we'd be glad to walk you through it.
Q - What does it mean to ‘consign’ something?
A - Consignment means, in short - that you give the product you want to sell to the merchant, before it is sold - and when the sale happens, the profits are delivered to the selling party. In the case of Unicorn Auctions, the legal requirement for consignment means we have to physically take possession of everything we sell at auction.
Q - Do I have to send in my bottle to sell it?
A - Yes, the state auction laws require the managing auctioneer to physically take possession of all and every asset offered for sale via the auction.
Q - What is the commission charged to sell?
A - We charge 5% commission on the total sale price and $5 per bottles to sellers.
Q - Can I use Unicorn Auctions to buy a gift for someone?
A - Yes, absolutely. If you find something you want to give as a gift, all you need to do is bid on the product and win - and then we can deliver the gift with whatever details you've got in mind, to whoever the lucky recipient is. Or, if you'd like to buy auction credit for someone as a gift, reach out with a message and we'll get back to you ASAP.
Q - What is the buyers premium?
A - We charge 15% buyers premium, with no registration charges or membership fees up front.
Q - If I buy a bottle, can I ship it anywhere?
A - Yes, you can, provided that the destination state permits individuals to ship spirits to themselves from out of state. The pricing depends on where the destination is, obviously, but
we can work with you to make sure your unicorns are safely delivered to the right place. This is not something that we mess around with, delivery perfection is of upmost importance to us at Unicorn Auctions. Contact us ahead of time if you have any questions.
Q - Where is Unicorn Auctions located?
A - We are headquartered in Chicago, Illinois.
Q - Who should I contact with other questions?
A - Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q - Who sets the reserve price?
A - We work closely with all of our sellers to provide the best estimates for their unicorns. That said, there are more and more new products coming into the secondary market every single day. While the reserve price will be set close to the low end estimate provided, we will start most bids at a much lower price to aid us in price discovery for similar items listed in the future.
