Antiques, Fine Art and Collectables
The Purchaser is solely responsible for and must arrange, the shipping of any items purchased. With regard to smaller items ( provided we regard it suitable ), the Auctioneers can arrange Postage and Packing, the charge for which will be added to the Invoice Total.
POSTAGE: For a further charge, we are happy to pack and post single items that will fit within a 30cmx30cmx20cm box and send by Royal Mail special delivery. We will not pack collections of fragile items or pictures/paintings. For items that do not meet this criteria, we recommend using Auction To Door Shipping, who can be contacted on firstname.lastname@example.org or +44 1903 742233 or +44 7483 353934
DELIVERY For local delivery of furniture we recommend Libbys Transport 01306 886755 or mobile 07831 799319
For small items we would recommend using the special delivery service provided by Royal Mail.
If you choose to use Royal Mail, we will securely package your items and arrange their collection and delivery for you. However due to the closure of the local Post Office, we will only undertake postage of small, single item lots which will be posted by Special Delivery at our convenience. We will package items as safely and securely as possible but will hold no responsibility for damage received during transit.
For Medium sized items: If you use Auction to Door, they will collect and package your items themselves.
Please Note/ we DO NOT package dinner services or pictures at all, if you purchase these items then you must use a firm to collect and package them.
For large items ( tables, bureaus )
We would advise using a firm of carriers. We personally recommend a local firm 'Libbys Transport' ( tel 01306 886 755 / 07831 799 319 ) who will deliver to a radius of about 50 miles from the auction premises. If you live further than 50 miles from the auction rooms it would be better to arrange delivery yourself in order to get the best quoted price.
