General delivery information available from the auctioneer
We prefer you (the purchaser) to pack and arrange transport. Removal trucking firms can make crates, wrap your goods in bubble wrap and have them delivered to you. Note: Couriers do not pack and require payment before they pick up the goods. If you want Dunbar Sloane Ltd to pack and provide packing materials and arrange and pay for couriers we charge for the wrapping, plus the courier cost. This is to be all paid before the goods leave our premises. We pack with care, however we take no responsibility for damage once your goods leave our premises. We insist you take out your own insurance to cover any damage or loss in transit.
International Shipping and Storage
Dunbar Sloane Ltd can advise on the best method of packing and freight to send purchased property internationally. A wide variety of methods of despatch are used depending on the weight and volume and cost estimates can be obtained from us at any time. Upon receiving your written instructions, we will with discretion, engage professional commercial fine art shippers or deal with the shippers of your choice. Long term storage can also be arranged. Insurance is the buyers responsibility for freight and storage. Valuations and Inspections, written valuation for probate, insurance, family division and other purposes can be carried out at our offices or in your home. The charges are on a per hour basis plus expenses and travel but if items are subsequently sold shortly afterwards, valuation charges may be refunded on a pro rata basis.
