Is Bucks County Estate Traders a marketplace?

No, Bucks County Estate Traders is not an online marketplace.  That is, we only sell our own inventory and stand behind every item we sell. There are no "seller" accounts. There are no "consigner" accounts. Although our inventory may seem massive, every item is sold directly by Bucks County Estate Traders.

Do you BUY items?

Yes, we do! If you have antique or vintage items that you'd like to sell, please reach out to us through our Services page on the website. We are always interested in discovering unique pieces with historical significance.

Do you CONSIGN items?

No, we do not consign items. We only offer outright purchase of your items. In this way the process is very simple for selling to BCET. Once an agreement is reached, we will pickup your items nationwide and upon confirmation, issue you full payment.

Can I view your inventory online?

Yes, our website features a regularly updated gallery showcasing a selection of our inventory. You can browse through our inventory of over 10,000 high quality, name brand items. Be sure to check our revolving New Arrivals and Clearance sections.

What is your Return Policy?

Unless an item is specifically designated as non-returnable, any item purchased online can be cancelled and refunded prior to shipping. After an item has been has been shipped, that item can be returned for the purchase price within 30 days. Shipping costs are not refundable.

What are the shipping costs?

Shipping for purchases is an additional fee to the purchase price. Our shipping staff will do our best to offer you the best price for shipping. We have a nationwide network of carriers and can offer fair shipping prices. Do to the size and delicate nature of most of our products, we almost exclusively utilize white-glove/in-home delivery. Some smaller items may be shipped standard carriers like UPS or FedEx.  However, the shipping costs are always presented to you in advance. You are welcome to cancel any transaction if the shipping costs do not meet your expectations. 

What the shipping timeline?

Most items are shipped and received by the customer within three to six weeks of purchase and payment.  Many shipments to major US cities are shipped faster than this. Factors such as oversize and fragile items can take longer.  Remote and rural locations can also extend the delivery window. However, we will always let you know up front if a given order would require additional delivery time.

Do you offer local pickup?

Absolutely!  Local pickup is always free and encouraged.  Our massive Hatfield, PA showroom is a true experience. We would love to have you stop by even if just to browse for ideas or chat.

Why am I being charged sales tax for an out-of-state order?

We understand the confusion that some customers are experiencing regarding the collection of sales tax. The laws pertaining to the collection of sales tax vary from state to state, site to site, and seller to seller. In short, on June 21, 2018, The Supreme Court decided South Dakota v. Wayfair, Inc This ruling enabled US States to require that sales tax be collected for online orders that are delivered to a given State or if the seller has a physical presence in that State.  It is further complicated by each State's requirements to collect sales tax being unique to that given state. Most States base their requirement to collect tax based on the seller's count of sale orders and/or the total value of sales for that state.  Therefore, it is very likely that a customer that had never been charged sales tax previously, could now be charged sales tax going forward, based on that State's requirements.  Bucks County Estate Traders would never want to unjustly charge our customers sales tax. If your order is charged sales tax, you can be certain it is only due to the requirements of your delivery state.
