Frequently Asked Questions


This often indicates that the item did not have any bidders and was passed during the sale. If you are interested in this item after the sale, you may contact us regarding this at [email protected]

Following an auction, some items may have not been sold. If Heartland Artifact Auctions is the owner of the item, then we reserve the right to offer them for sale at a buy-it-now price. You will likely find these items on our “Shop” page.

If the items that were not purchased during an auction belong to a consignor, it is at their sole discretion whether or not they will be put up for sale post-auction. If you are intested in an item, send us an email at [email protected] with the lot number of interest and date of the auction you’re refering to.

You will receive an invoice via email within 24 hours after the auction closes. If you do not receive your invoice within this timeframe, please contact us. For our larger, monthly auctions, please allow up to 48 hours to receive your invoice.

We currently host auctions on our own website here!
We also host our monthly auctions on LiveAuctioneers.com

By default we do not request a signature for your shipment, however, we can add this requirement if indicated to us before payment of your invoice. Please contact us to request signature requirement for your shipment. Signature requirement is an extra $3 to your invoice. We will send an updated invoice upon your request and then fulfill your order upon payment.

Shipments are only automatically insured up to a certain value. Please visit this link to view on USPS.com. Should you request insurance on a shipment that differs from the default value covered, you must contact the auction house prior to payment of your invoice to request insurance on your package.

Once requested, we will send you an updated invoice with the insurance charge. Once paid, we will ship your package.

Your shipping address can only be changed by you via the platform you have purchased through. Go to your account settings to update your shipping address.

Call us or email us before you pay your invoice to alert us of your address change and we can be sure to ship it to your desired location. However, we ask that you update your profile before future auctions to avoid items being shipped to the wrong location.
