Packing & Postage Service


Any packing and handling of purchased lots by the Auctioneers' staff is undertaken solely as a courtesy to buyers.

Under no circumstances will the Auctioneers be held responsible for damage incurred by the packing and handling of sold lots and therefore any claims will be made solely by the purchaser.

Overseas Buyers; due to the recent changes to import and export of goods from the UK and customs charges we cannot post overseas.

We cannot post any ivory items or items containing ivory elements to the USA and are unable to assist in the acquisition of relevant export licenses. It is the purchasers responsibility to ensure prior to bidding that they are able to obtain the necessary paperwork.
