Collectors Universe expects to move its offices to a new Southern California location this month. As we reported earlier this fall, the company received a $3.5 million, five-year loan to help finance the project.
The company says the move is “due to continued success and growing demand” for its services, which include grading trading cards through its PSA division, along with autographs, bats and event tickets through PSA/DNA. The company also has a coin and banknote grading and authentication arm. Collectors Universe has certified over 66 million collectibles during its history.
Later this month, the company will move to 1610 E. St Andrew Place, Suite 150, Santa Ana, California 92705, just a five-minute drive from its current location on Alton Parkway. The larger building will accommodate efforts to streamline its authentication and grading operations.
“We’ve seen tremendous growth over the last few years, and now it is time to expand our doors to meet that growth,” said Collectors Universe CEO Joe Orlando, who says the building will increase efficiency.
The addresses for customer authentication and grading submissions are not affected and orders should continue to be submitted based on the address listed on the customer submission form. The only exception is for shipments sent via FedEx Ground. Any FedEx Ground packages shipped to arrive in November can be mailed to the current address of 1921 E. Alton Parkway, Suite 100, Santa Ana, California 92705. Only FedEx Ground packages scheduled to arrive in December should be shipped to the new address.
Non-grading and FedEx Ground packages will be received at the Alton Parkway location up to November 30, 2017.
Company phone numbers will remain the same during and after the move.
