When it comes to buying at auction, item selection and customer service are the two most important things that an auction house can provide. 888 Auctions offers both, an impressive selection and a very knowledgable and courteous staff. I purchased an early Arthur Shilling self-portrait at a very good price. The staff provided me with a detailed and accurate condition report and assist my successful purchase by phone. When I arrived to pick up my painting 3 days later, I was given a warm welcome by the staff who package my painting and carried it to my car. Such attention to detail, and great customer service, wins my praise and business. I highly recommend 888 auctions and look forward to future dealings with them. .
