Transfer of Lots Between Sites For Collection
Please note that ALL postage and transfers are handled at our Derbyshire saleroom (Head Office), so if you buy items at our Staffordshire, Oxfordshire, Hertfordshire, Kent or London salerooms and require postage, there will be a transfer fee to pay. These fees are in addition to the postage and packing fees.
This service does not include furniture and we are unable to transfer this between sites.
We have our own in-house packing and postage department who may be able to assist with postage, for more information contact directly: [email protected].
There will be a fee on top of the postage cost for the handling and packing charge, which will vary according to the size, quantity and fragility of the item.
There may be a delay as the items have to be transferred from branch offices to the main office before a quote can be provided and the quote is only available AFTER the item has been transferred. If you would like us to post the item to you please let us know AS SOON AS POSSIBLE by emailing [email protected].
Timely collection of items is imperative as storage space is limited.
Furniture: Lots must be paid for and collected within 3 days after the furniture sale, items remaining after this timescale will incur a storage fee of £50 +VAT per week.
General items: must be paid for and collected within 5 working days of the end of the sale, after that storage charges will apply which will vary between £10-£20 + VAT per week dependent upon volume of items/space required to store.
