Package and Shipping (for quarterly Fine Art & Antique Sales only)
We are neither professional packers or shippers; however should you require small items to be packed and posted we will try to accommodate your requirements, after payment for the lots. Demand is high for this service and although we aim to have the items packed and ready to send within a week, we cannot guarantee this. We would like to remind all our customers that whilst we make every effort to pack suitably we can in no way take responsibility for the safe arrival of goods and take no liability for damage in transit.
If you bid via the-saleroom.com, please note that due to increased security measures, we will only dispatch parcels to the registered cardholders address. Any request for parcels to be sent to an alternative address will be at the discretion of the Auctioneer.
