Postage & shipping

Postage & shipping

We understand that it is not always possible to be at the sale or to collect your winning lots in person, therefore Adam Partridge Auctioneers & Valuers offer a postal service. We are not professional packers or shippers but we will endeavour to pack your item as carefully and as responsibly as possible to ensure that your parcel makes a safe onward journey. Please note: Adam Partridge Ltd will not be responsible for any damage to items while in transit. For more information or to check if your lot qualifies* for in-house postage please contact a member of staff.

*we are unable to package or post clocks or barometers using our in-house postage as we are unable to professionally secure the movement whilst it is in transit. We are unable to post guns due to strict legislation on sending firearms. Check individual requirements for posting weapons.
