Packing & Postage Service

Important information

We have updated our packing policy. Please carefully read the information below regarding what we can pack in-house.

Our Pack & Post service can only be advised once accounts are settled in full.

NO LIABILITY will be accepted by Sheffield Auction Gallery for any packing or postage / loss / damage etc. if in-house packing and shipping facility is used.

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.

Lots we can pack in-house...

Small, lightweight (under 2kg) and non-fragile items by Royal Mail only. Products must fit in within 30cm x 30cm x 30cm packaging or smaller. There is a minimum in-house packing charge of £12 to £20. We aim to pack within 3 weeks.

If a request for in-house Pack & Post has been received and we have completed the packing if that service is then declined we reserve the right to charge £5 unpacking fee to cover the time and materials used.

Buyers may send their own materials with postage attached, for which we make a £3 charge.
