UK Shipping Quote Service 

Making Shipping Easier with Mail Boxes Etc

 
TAKING THE GUESSWORK OUT OF UK SHIPPING COSTS

We are delighted to now offer instant quotes from art and antiques shipping specialists, Mail Boxes Etc. for applicable items. 

 

BROWSING AN AUCTION?  

We automatically apply an estimated UK shipping quote to as many lots as possible prior to the auction (predominantly for smaller items such as works of art, smaller paintings, ceramics/ glass, etc).  Please note this estimated cost is not inclusive of additional compensation cover, this is available if required for an additional charge.  

Before bidding, you can see how much it would cost to have the lot delivered to any address in the UK by clicking on the 'Shipping Estimate' tab on the lot detail page on our website. See image below for reference:

 


SUCCESSFULLY WON A LOT?

If you are successful in purchasing the lot, and if a shipping cost has been pre-allocated, you can view the associated shipping cost in the ‘My Account’ section of our website. If you are signed in to your account, this will show as your username/name on the far right of the top main menu. The estimated or bespoke shipping quote will also be linked to your invoice

  • Should you decide to accept the quote and use pre-quoted shipping service, simply click on the shipping icon under ‘My Account’.
  • Even if you have already paid for your purchases, you may decide to add shipping at a later date and pay the balance. Use the link on your original invoice, or click the shipping icon under ‘My Account’
  • Once you agree to use the service, you will receive a confirmation email to acknowledge that you have added shipping to your invoice. You will receive a further email notifying you when your items have been dispatched.
  • Should you wish to have additional compensation cover applied to your shipment Mail Boxes Etc can provide cover, at an additional cost, based on the final sale value of the item. This cover is one developed specially for the fine art and antiques sector, the cost of which is based on the declared value of the shipment (DVCS) and is calculated at 4.2% of the value for coverage against loss and damage (or 2.5% for loss only) or a minimum charge of £15, if the value is under £500.

QUERY REGARDING COMPENSATION COVER IN TRANSIT?

Mail Boxes Etc offer an enhanced compensation cover scheme (for an additional cost to pre-sale quote), one developed specially for the fine art and antiques sector. This is based on the declared value of the shipment (DVCS).

The additional cost of shipping compensation scheme (DVCS) cannot be calculated until after the auction, this is because the cost of this is calculated based on the final sale value of the lot - compensation against loss or damage, if required, is calculated at 3.5% of the value or a minimum charge of £15, if the value is under £500. Mail Boxes Etc will be in touch if you select to use their service regarding the compensation cover, should you have any questions in advance please fill in the form below.

LARGER ITEMS AND INTERNATIONAL PURCHASES

For items we are unable to provide an estimated shipping quote for (typically larger lots such as furniture and pictures and for international shipping), a bespoke shipping estimate can be obtained from the Mail Boxes Etc team through the "price on application" quote request form.
