Shipping Policy

During the Covid pandemic we will be providing a shipping service for our Collectors & General Sales.  Please contact the office to see if your lots are suitable for us to post and to get a quote. We ask that you pay and collect or arrange shipping as soon as possible after the sale.
For local delivery we recommend Chester Van Men (07902 867764) (
For furniture and other larger or very fragile items which need UK shipping we suggest JG Transport (Tel: 07807 132783, e-mail: and 'S' Xpress Transport (e-mail:, tel: 07817 763198

We provide an in-house shipping service for lots we deem suitable for posting. We charge what we consider to be a reasonable packing fee in addition to the cost of postage which is normally by Royal Mail Special Delivery or a courier service like TNT.

Please note that we do not have a dedicated packing department so whilst we aim to respond to shipping requests as quickly as possible they can take 7-10 days at times of particularly high demand.  

If your lots are suitable for posting we will have calculated a quote by the time you receive your invoice so you can call or message us to request this. If there is no quote available , we may still be able to help but we may have to pack the item first in order to get a quote. Please feel free to enquire.

For furniture and other larger or very fragile items which need domestic delivery we suggest JG Transport (0116 2773656) (07807 132783) ( or 'S' Xpress Transport (07817 763198) (
