Collection, Dispatch & Storage

We ask you to collect your purchases or unsold items promptly. You must pay for your purchases in full before taking them away.

Collection Times

Monday to Friday 8.30am – 5pm
Saturday (auction day) - by appointment 7am – 2pm
Saturday (without an auction) - CLOSED
Sunday – CLOSED

Storage & Charges

Please note: furniture, carpets, clocks and larger works of art lots will normally remain in the salerooms for seven working days following each sale, after which they will be removed to store and arrangements for collection must be made in advance.

Storage charges will be levied on all lots not collected within seven days of the sale. This will include a handling fee of £5 plus VAT per consignment as well as a storage charge of £5 plus VAT per lot per day. No goods may be collected until these charges have been paid.
