Adam Partridge Auctioneers Cheshire
Auctioneer in Cheshire
Postage

We understand that it's not always possible to be at the sale or collect your winning lots in person so Adam Partridge Auctioneers and Valuers offer a postal service. We are not professional packers or shippers but we will do our best to ensure that your parcel is packed in a way to ensure the item is safe for its journey, however Adam Partridge Ltd will not be responsible for making any claim. Please contact us so we can advise if the lot is suitable for sending on 0845 835 0520 or oliverhancock@adampartridge.co.uk  If we cannot post the lot to you due to size or weight, you are welcome to arrange collection by another carrier. A list of our recommended carriers are detailed at the bottom of this page.

If you were bidding via www.the-saleroom.com, due to increased security measures, we will only despatch parcels to the registered cardholders address. Any requests for parcels to be sent to an alternative address are at the discretion of the auctioneer.

For items being sent outside of the UK mainland including Ireland and the rest of Europe, we will send packages using Parcelforce Worldwide but items using this service cannot be insured and will be priced on size and weight of the parcel.

ALL JIFFY BAGS within the UK mainland are sent by Royal Mail Special Delivery and will be insured up to £500.

ALL BOXES within the UK mainland are sent via Parcelforce 48.  We remind customers that ITEMS CANNOT BE INSURED due to the nature of our lots and the Parcelforce terms and conditions. 

Items are sent a minimum of a week following the sale and cannot be guaranteed for a specific date.
