Leighton Hall Auctions offer an in-house post and packing service for most items that are sold through our auctions. The minimum charge applied for our services will be £12.50 plus VAT (UK) and will depend on the weight, size, quantity and nature of the items that need to be posted. We aren’t professional packers but have experience of posting a range of items to both domestic and international destinations. We cant take responsibility for any parcels if they have been lost or broken if they aren’t insured. If any import tax or duty needs to be paid, then this will become the buyer's responsibility to pay.
Postage needs to be arranged and paid for no later than 5 working days after the auction. Parcels will be sent as soon as possible but take up to 2 weeks after payment has cleared to be dispatched.
For ALL international postage enquiries, please contact us prior to bidding.
All items will be sent using a tracked service and the recipient will assume full responsibility when it leaves our saleroom. Insurance can be purchased by the buyer at a cost of 5% + VAT of the hammer price. If not insured, then we will not accept responsibility for the parcel(s) should they arrive damaged or get lost in transit.
For larger items, we cant offer postage, however, we do work closely with a range of couriers who can offer their services. Please contact us for details.
Alternatively, you can arrange your own postage or collection but please notify us of your arrangements.
If you are planning to collect your items in person, please ensure you contact us prior to arrange a date and time to collect your lots to ensure we have them for you. Please note, the lots are securely stored off-site so we need advanced warning to ensure we have them at our premises ready for you to pick up!
