Before bidding we request you speak to the Auction House to confirm if your lot of interest can be posted. We do not have a local Post Office in our town so smaller items are manageable but others possible not.
• We generally only post small items of jewellery, coins, silver trinkets etc. to UK address. If postage is required to go abroad then a disclaimer is needed ‘at purchasers own risk.’
• Watches will need a disclaimer emailed due to the glass face not being covered by insurance.
• No ceramics, glass or breakable items can be posted. Again if the purchaser sends a disclaimer and the items are small then we can consider this.
• No knives or weapons can be posted
• Purchasers to double check the address we have on the invoice is their postage address. If it’s different you MUST email us the amended address.
• There will always be an ‘exception’ we are happy have to look at any lots individually.
