This is a fee-paying service payable by bank transfer. The fee for postage and packaging is not included in our commission fee.
DISCLAIMER: Each request is assessed on an individual basis to determine the best method of dispatch and relevant costs. Items deemed too fragile and at risk of breakage will be rejected for postage and alternative services will be recommended in the interests of the client. While items that are due to be shipped will be handled with care and packaged to the best of our ability, we do not claim to be professional packers or shippers. Items on our premises will be stored safely and securely. When items leave our premises and are in transit via courier or postal service, Great Western Auctions are not responsible for any damage or loss incurred. We are also not responsible for making any claim regarding loss or damage to items. A tracking reference number will be issued which can be used to raise a claim with the relevant shipping provider.
Once the lot(s) and agreed postage fees are settled in full, we aim to dispatch items within 10 working days from the date payment is received. This time frame is not guaranteed.
Please note that items are shipped to buyer’s addresses registered on our system unless advised otherwise.
Our Postage & Packaging service does not extend to any items of furniture. A list of alternative couriers for items unable to be dispatched through our in-house service is available on our website.
