Wrapping, Packing and Despatch

Preferential rates have been negotiated with Mail Boxes Etc who are specialists in the provision of wrapping, packing and despatch services to the antiques and fine art business sector. They can provide you with all the necessary services for lots purchased from our salerooms.

We are unable to provide any other wrapping, packing or despatch service.

Mail Boxes Etc collect items regularly from our salerooms. Special collections can be arranged, if required. They offer a professional, domestic and international service by post, courier, road, air and sea, depending on the lot size, destination and speed required. Bespoke cases can also be made up for your lot or lots.

While indicative pricing is always obtainable by contacting Mail Boxes Etc, firm pricing is agreed after wrapping and packing prior to despatch.

The minimum charge made by Mail Boxes Etc is £15.00 plus VAT for small, lightweight, non-fragile items under 2Kg. This includes collection, professional wrapping, packing and domestic delivery.

Payment can be made with all major credit and debit cards.

Insurance

If you do not have your own transit insurance, enhanced compensation cover is available from Mail Boxes Etc, either for full cover or loss only, as required.
