We are now offering postage options on applicable lots sold through selected online and live auctions. Lots displayed with the box symbol are eligible to be delivered by a third-party company, in this case DPD or Royal Mail.
Prices start from £4.99 for smaller items and will increase according to size and weight. Additional costs to cover insurance will be applied for high value items.
Postage cost will be displayed on the lot page of each qualifying item. When buying multiple items, they will be combined where possible resulting in a reduced postage price.
All postage prices shown are inclusive of VAT, the postage costs are calculated when you select “Add Postage” when paying your invoice online. Postage is not added as standard. If you would prefer to collect the items, please select “Remove Postage” before making payment.
Postage is only available on a select number of items that are of a certain size and weight. If you win any items that cannot be posted through this service, then the postage option will become unavailable.
Postage costs are applied per invoice. As such, at the moment postage cannot be combined across multiple invoices.
Items that do not qualify for postage as per DPD and Royal Mail exclusions, for example TV's, do not have the postage symbol displayed. If your invoice includes items that are not applicable for dispatch, then the postage option will not be available and as such goods will need to be collected from the auction centre.
You can however, arrange for a courier to collect on your behalf. Any collections, that buyers wish to arrange via third party courier companies will be subject to a minimum £10 inc. VAT handling fee, this fee may increase due to volume of lots purchased. The buyer must inform Simon Charles as soon as collection by third party courier collection is arranged, goods will not be collated until this fee has been paid. All third-party courier collections must be arranged within the sale collection times or you will be subject to the late collection charges. This service will only be available where Simon Charles does not offer its own delivery option. Please note, third party courier and delivery fees will not be reimbursed should you need to return goods to Simon Charles Auctioneers.
