Please ensure when ordering any item that you include your address so that we can quote on packing, postage and insurance costs for you. We regularly receive orders with a name but no address, this makes the transaction time much longer than it needs to be.
 

Payment Methods

 

Payment may be made by credit card, cheque, money order, or direct transfer to our bank account. We accept MasterCard and VISA credit cards. We do not charge a surcharge for using a credit card; in fact, we prefer clients to use credit cards as it makes all transactions quick and convenient for both parties involved.

We can only accept payment by a foreign cheque if A$30 is added to the amount. This is to cover the excessively high Australian bank charges for clearing overseas cheques. It is also worth noting the very long clearance time that is also required when paying by this method. Delays of upwards of a month are not unknown and will delay dispatch of your purchase.

You may pay funds by transfer direct into our bank account if you prefer.
The bank account details are
Bank: National Australia Bank of Australia
Branch Number: 083125
Account Name: Michael Eastick & Associates Pty. Ltd.
Account Number: 456323940

You may post us money (currency notes) at your risk, or traveller's cheques of ANY currency but only by Registered Post please. You receive a full credit of what that currency yields nett in Australian dollars when converted by our bank.

Money Orders from Australia Post are acceptable but unfortunately overseas Money Orders are not.
 

Currency Conversion

 

For your use we have placed a free currency conversion link here . Check out the price of an item in your local currency. Please note rates quoted may not be the same as those charged. Currencies fluctuate every second and this may affect your transaction, as well as the final rate your bank may charge.

When paying by credit card, we bill you in Australian dollars for only the amount agreed (plus postage and handling). The exchange rate and any bank fees for foreign orders will be that calculated by your credit card company and not us.

We show all prices two ways - inclusive of GST for our Australian buyers and exclusive of GST for our overseas buyers (Export sales excempt of GST). We also show an approximation of the export price in US dollars. Postage and handling charges for all buyers include the GST (including Overseas buyers).

Returns and Expertisation  

 

100% customer satisfaction is our goal. We want your long term repeat business. If you are not happy with the goods supplied, please ship them back to us by Registered Mail in the exact condition they were received in, within 48 hours of receipt. Include an explanation of the problem, and we will fully refund your purchase price of those goods, or exchange the goods, as preferred.

NOTE: No lot is returnable, if, subsequent to receipt by purchaser, it has been immersed in water or other fluid, or marked by an Expert or an Expert Committee, or treated or damaged by any process whatever, unless my written permission has been previously obtained.

If you wish to have any item expertised by a proper, recognized, independent Expert Committee you are most welcome to do so, but only after we provide written notification that this is acceptable to us. You need to advise us of this request by registered mail postmarked within 48 hours of lot receipt, or via Fax, or via E-mail. This policy MUST be enforced strictly for obvious reasons and this policy is in line with most other dealers and auction houses worldwide. The onus of proof lies with the purchaser, as do ALL associated costs of postage, expert or legal opinion of Certificates, etc. The inability of a recognized Expert Committee to express a definite and conclusive opinion is no grounds for a refund or return on any lot.

The only Expert Certificates accepted by us are from well established independent Committees such as RPSL (London), RPSV (Victoria), BPA, APEX (USA), etc

All goods on my website are as described to the best of our ability. If you require further details or a scan please do not hesitate to ask. Collections and mixed lots are obviously not returnable for any reason as is common with all auctions and most other sellers worldwide.
 

Want Lists

 

If sending wants list, please describe the items fully with full catalogue description as well as a recognised catalogue #. For better items , note grading required as this may allow us some latitude in providing costing options for your consideration.

Don't forget to send it with a clear return address (postal or E-Mail) so that we can get back to you.
