Packing and Shipping

Cuttlestones work closely with Mail Boxes Etc. of Wolverhampton who provide competitive specialist packing and shipping prices for items bought at our auctions. Through their Auction Room Delivery Service, Mail Boxes Etc. arrange to collect items shortly after sale.
All our online catalogues for our Fine Art and Antique sales and Specialist Collectors' sales now show an indicative cost for shipping to a UK address alongside most lot descriptions.

What's Included in the Auction Room Delivery Service from Mail Boxes Etc.

  • Scheduled collections from both our Penkridge and Wolverhampton salerooms
  • Professional packaging and shipping of goods, covered up to the value of £250 per lot (additional cover available via Mail Boxes Etc., please see below)
  • Tracked and signed for - for each parcel

Buying Multiple Lots

Mail Boxes Etc. will offer a reduced price service, if you bid successfully on multiple lots as indicated below. 
Highest shipping price + 30% of each additional item(s) quoted shipping price
e.g. For a shipment where the highest priced shipping is £15.95 and the quoted shipping for 2nd item is £11.95, total shipping charge for both items is £15.95 + £3.58 = £19.53 Inc. VAT.  This is the highest shipping price (£15.95) +  (£11.95 x 30% = £3.58)  of the additional lots shipping price.
Shipping quotes for over ten lots are provided by Mail Boxes Etc. by application.

Where the hammer value (including all auction premiums and VAT) is greater than £250, additional compensation cover can be applied for at a cost of 2.5% + VAT to the value over £250.
e.g. Hammer Value including premiums & VAT = £605, inclusive cover for £250, additional cover may be applied for to cover the whole value at a cost of £8.87. (2.5%+VAT x £355)
