  • What regulations and rules should I be aware of?
    For certain countries such as Australia and South Africa, local customs will require a Certificate of Antiquity (for antiques) to be issued in the UK, of which we can arrange. Shipping antiques into the USA could not be simpler; as long as the dealer you buy from provides an invoice showing circa dates against each item, the consignment will be allowed into the United States, exempt of import duty. Certain items require import permits, but we can advise and arrange these for you. Our advisors are very knowledgeable and can advise you in more detail.
  • How are fine arts and antiques packed?
    Everything is packed to impeccably high standards in our London warehouse by our own experienced team. We only use packing materials which we know from years of experience will protect your consignment whilst it is in transit. Delicate items for shipment by sea or road and all items travelling by air are packed in purpose-built ply cases for added protection.
  • Do you offer anything specific for fine art and antiques dealers?
    Yes, we regularly service antiques dealers and interior designers all over the world and offer the following benefits:
    Buyer’s account
    This allows us to pay antique dealers on your behalf against monies already deposited with us.This reduces the number of costly bank transfers you would otherwise incur and helps to ease and simplify the relevant administration. When all collections have been completed we will supply you with a statement of account detailing every transaction made.
    Buyer’s pack
    We supply a ‘buyer’s pack’ which contains a purchase order pad to record all your purchases, along with stickers and tags for the items, to help us to identify them upon collection.
