How long does it take usually for Great Collections to ship out packages after been paid?

Just curious won my first coin from them and was simply wondering.

I know Heritage can take up to 2 weeks but it it is usually faster based on previous coins I won from them.

    Paid yesterday but as mentioned was just curious.

    With the long weekend coming for Easter I rather they would just ship it after on April 2nd.

    Maybe once I had to wait until after the next weekend. Usually get them during the week right after the auction ends.

    Normally 2 days for me, and occasionally even quicker.

    Very quickly. I’ve only had mine not be shipped Monday once.

    I’ll add here that the one time I had to wait over the next weekend, they sent a notice that they were getting things out later than usual. I still got it the next Monday/Tues.

    Nothing new here, but my stuff comes really fast. Always pleased dealing with them. Additionally, they are really responsive via phone and email.

    When I pay Sunday right after the auction and choose FedEx, they ship Monday and and I receive the package Tuesday or Wednesday. If I select USPS standard delivery, they ship a few days later, so I usually receive Saturday or the following Monday.

    It depends how you pay. They seem to wait until money clears, so credit card is faster than ACH from bank. But still faster than the other company mentioned.

    GC is always faster than I expect with everything, a smooth running business with class and integrity, a real rarity in this time

    I always pay immediately via pay pal, after the auctions on Sunday.

    My experience has been, that they almost always mail the coin(s) on Tuesday or Wednesday.

    The coins are usually received by the following Saturday or Monday.

    Never any problems with GC. :)

    My Sunday purchase will likely arrive on Friday March 29th - impressive service in my opinion.

    I won a coin on Sunday March 17, 2024. I paid via PayPal that same evening shortly after the auction was over. The coin was shipped USPS Priority mail on Monday March 18, 2024, and delivered to me on March 20, 2024. It went from California to Massachusetts in only a couple of days.

    I have bought and sold with GC and have never had an issue. Other auction services need to take notes! @ianrussell is the man. My coins are always in hand by Wendsday, when i pay Sunday night. Customer for life.

    Timely shipping is essential for all auction companies and I'm sure they are better than the bigger ones.

    I've found that it depends on your choice of shipping method. If I go with Fed-Ex, I receive it Wednesday after the auction. Standard USPS, it may be 8 to 9 days. But that's not on GC. I live 85 miles east of Columbus, Ohio. USPS tracking from other sources can take 3, sometimes 4 days to travel those miles.

    In answer to your question, it depends if you checked off remove sticker(s), some, or all.

    But seriously, never had an issue, they really rock on many levels.
