Collection & Postage
We are not usually able to offer a packing and shipping service, although we can offer a limited, discretionary postal option on some items (typically restricted to coins and jewellery). Please contact us for details.
It is often the case that for smaller items we are happy to transfer them between our three auction centres free of charge for clients to collect.
Overseas buyers and purchasers of smaller items - should make their own arrangements. We recommend using the professional packaging and courier services such as...
