Did you know... why so many collectors prefer buying from over any over movie poster source?

An ever-growing number of collectors tell us that, while they will buy from many different sources, is far and away their favorite place to buy from. Here are some of the many reasons they give:
1) Honest descriptions and unenhanced images: They tell us that they love how we honestly grade every item (sometimes they say we are TOO harsh!) and they KNOW that they can both trust our supersized image to be an accurate depiction of the item, and they KNOW that "what they see in the auction is what they will get". They often mention that when they get a misdescribed item from elsewhere, it is hard to get those places to accept responsibility and give a refund (sometimes it is hard to even get them to reply to phone calls or emails) and that they (the customer) are often made to feel like THEY did something wrong, when they simply want the seller to "right their wrong".

2) Great packaging: They say our packages and tubes are pretty indestructible and the "best in the business". They know that 99.99% of the time their order will arrive looking like it did when it left, and that the incredibly rare times there IS the slightest damage or loss, will quickly make it right.

3) Our supermarket selection and our "Pay and Hold" service: Not only do we often offer 999 of a single type of item at once, but we allow U.S. customers three weeks (non-U.S. customers six weeks!) to accumulate all they can over that time and STILL only pay our flat rate U.S. shipping (or actual cost anywhere else) if the items can all be sent together. Imagine you find 15 folded or rolled one-sheets you want from a single set of our auctions. You pay just $12 U.S. shipping for all of them. If you HAD found those exact same 15 one-sheets from 15 different sellers, you would have paid around $180 U.S. shipping, a monstrous added cost!

4) Ease of use of our site and our auctions at every step of the way: We have done everything we can to make our site the absolute best-organized and easiest to use of ANY movie paper website, whether it comes to searching and viewing our galleries, placing bids, or the transparency of our auctions (we are about the ONLY major auction left that shows you who each bidder is, and the entire bid history). We notify you with all needed info right after the auction ends, and we allow you the greatest variety of ways to pay (and options on combining) of any auction house anywhere. We also have our "Want List" system that lets you be notified whenever we have items of interest to you, so that you likely will never miss any items of interest.

5) Our $1, no reserve, no buyers premiums auctions: Every set of auctions there ARE fantastic buys being made (as all our regular buyers well know!). It is OK with the consignors that this happens because of the high prices achieved by some of their items, and this makes for lots of really happy buyers, week in and week out.

6) We are not going anywhere: We have 32 employees, and we have done nothing but this for 25 years, and we own and occupy an entire city block. We have auctioned far more movie paper for more money and for far longer than any current other movie paper auction.

7) Our TRUE customer service: If you have ANY problem of ANY kind, just email or call and we will do anything within reason to make you happy (and sometimes, beyond all reason!). Want to talk directly to the owner (Bruce)? Just pick up the phone and call and ask for me, and I will immediately take your call, something that is not true in ANY other auction.

These are just some of the many reasons collectors tell us that is far and away their favorite place to buy from. You may have others!
