UK Shipping


All items are securely packed by our highly experienced team and posted to you using Royal Mail Special Delivery - this provides you with a minimum insurance of £750 and next day tracked delivery.



At Alnwick Auctions we offer a highly efficient in-house and non-profit postage service. All packages are priced depending on weight and value. When buying in multiple auctions, we will combine postage to reduce excess packaging and costs.

We can only hold items for two weeks and these items should be paid for in full before buying in the next auction.

We offer a minimum insurance of £750, and a maximum of £2500. If your parcel exceeds this value amount, we are happy to split items into multiple parcels covering the full value.

*Please refer to the chart below.

If we receive payment by 1pm, we will do our utmost to ensure your items are packed and posted to you the same day. Please ensure you use Surname and/or Bidder number as shown on invoice as reference. All packages can be tracked on the Royal Mail website, simply request your tracking number by email. 

Extra packaging charges will be added to some breakable items / items that need more packing than usual. You can also request this by emailing us at and quoting 'Extra Packaging'.
