We are delighted to now offer instant quotes from art and antiques shipping specialists, Mail Boxes Etc. for applicable items.
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:
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
When multiple lots are purchased Mailboxes Etc will apply a discount to shipping costs. If you are looking to purchase multiple lots and would like more information on shipping costs please fill in the "MBE Price Application" form below.
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.
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.
You are, of course, very welcome to use alternative couriers. We have included a list on other options you may wish to consider. Please note all shippers are third parties and not part of Lyon & Turnbull Ltd.
