Success at auction? Here’s how we can help get your item home.

We’re a busy saleroom working at speed. As one auction ends, we’re setting up for the next, which means items need to be away within 24 hours to make room for the next sale. If you can’t collect in person, and you don’t want to organise your own courier, we’re here to help.

We provide an in-house postage and packing service for small, medium and large unbreakable items. We can also organise or advise on couriers for very large, heavy or fragile items. It’s best to contact us to discuss your different shipping, courier or posting options.

We have a skilled and dedicated in-house packing and shipping team who love a challenge. They’ll do all they can to pack your parcel carefully so it’s ready for its journey to you. They’ve dispatched all manner of items, from valuable watches to toys and models and even a pair of waders, to new owners around the world.

Once out of their hands, however, and whilst they make every effort to pack things very well, we aren’t responsible for the safe arrival of your goods or for any damage incurred in transit. So please remember this when asking us to post or ship items, and talk to us about any concerns.

Please also be aware that certain items, including weapons, firearms and anything related to endangered species such as ivory, will need a licence to ship. It’s the responsibility of the buyer to arrange these licenses, and we are happy to provide advice and assistance.

Demand is high for our shipping and postal service. We aim to have an item packed and ready to send to you within four to seven working days from your purchase date. Please note we only dispatch parcels to the registered payee address so, if you want an item sending to an alternative address, you’ll need to agree that with us first.

Most items are sent Royal Mail Special Delivery with full tracking. For larger lots, we use the best carriers to ship your items, including My Hermes, Fedex, DHL and TNT.

Prices will include packaging costs and postage, expect UK postage to start at £15.00. Our minimum charge is £5 plus VAT. To send fragile or breakable items we suggest clients use Mailbox or Bradleys and the same applies to overseas lots.
