Can I get my items delivered ?
Yes – in most cases our vendors offer a delivery service. Each lot contains delivery information which can be:
Collection or Delivery
We always encourage our sellers to support a range of competitively and fairly priced delivery services. In some cases, delivery is not always possible, for example with vehicles or oversized and specialist items.
Where delivery is not available, we recommend that you check the location of the item before bidding so that you can make an informed decision about collecting items.
Each lot contains a location field which presents the ‘out code’ part of the postcode, e.g. PE2 or NE24. This allows you to check the location of the item so you can decide if it’s reasonable and cost effective for you to collect.
If you are not able to collect, we recommend using a service such as shiply.com who will provide competitive quotes for collecting items on your behalf.
In all cases, we aim to offer you enough detail for you to decide how the cost and availability of delivery or collection arrangements will impact what you are willing and able to bid.
How much will delivery cost ?
There are of course a huge number of variables when it comes to the cost of delivery, including the size, shape, weight, distance, urgency and level of insurance.
Therefore, the below is just a guide based on common transport options at the time of writing (April 2022).
Small Parcels 35x45x16cms & up to 2kg: from £3
Medium Parcels & Tubes: 61x46x46cms & up to 20kg: from £6
Large Parcels 150x150x150cms up to 30kg: from £15
Standard Pallet: from £65+VAT
Overzised Pallet: from £120+VATPrices vary based on courier and any additional insurance, recorded delivery or next day delivery services will incur higher fees.
Where you feel a delivery quote is too high, you are able to request quotes via shiply.com or your preferred courier to collect on your behalf.
Please note that delivery costs and timescales are still being heavily impacted by both Covid-19 and the current exceptionally high price of fuel, both of which are outside of our control.
We work alongside our vendors to offer fair and competitive postage and free P&P wherever possible.
