Important Information

Buyer's Premium 15% + VAT

Lots purchased online with the-saleroom.com will attract an additional charge for this service in the sum of 3% of the hammer price plus VAT at the rate imposed

Please note: Our descriptions do not contain any information as to the condition of any lot and it is up to the purchaser to satisfy themselves before bidding on the lot as to it's condition.


We offer an in-house postage and packing service.

Our charges are based upon the actual postage/courier costs plus an amount to cover our staff’s time providing a quote, packing the items and booking a courier/ taking the parcel to the post office.

We have a minimum charge of £10 and we have provided below a rough guide to our standard charges plus some examples.


We are inundated with many requests for postage and packing on the first few days following an auction. We employ additional staff to help cover this demand but as most of the requests come in over a short period it can take sometime to work through them. We aim to dispatch your parcel as soon as possible but in periods of high demand it can take up to three weeks to process.

Damage/Breakages in transit
We insure all parcels for loss but we are UNABLE to insure for damage or breakages during transit.

If you would like your parcel insured for damage (we would recommend this for delicate items and ceramics) or if you need it in a hurry then we suggest you contact Mailboxes - telephone 01225 483777 or info@mbebath.co.uk – who will be happy to collect from our premises.
