What People Say About Sterling Transitions
Hi Estate Sales group,
Joined a few weeks ago and have bought a few things in several auctions since. I bought some jewelry from Sterling Transitions auction - not knowing it was pick-up only (still learning and thought I had checked shipping only). Long story short, I paid but was worried about getting Task Rabbit or other pickup and didn’t want to violate my agreements etc. I reached out to let them know I was trying to arrange pickup, they got back to me and said not to worry, they would drop off at UPS store ( who got in touch for payment etc).
Just wanted to let you know how great they are- they just offered and did it and I am super grateful. Please share with leadership.
