What to consider when booking auction shipping services

Proper preparation is essential when shipping to or from an auction house. The following guidelines will assist you in ensuring that your shipment is successful:

  • Collection and delivery at the auction house by a third party – If you cannot be present, you will need to arrange for another person to wait for the auction collection service. Make sure that the item is adequately packed for shipping. You can either pack it yourself or coordinate this with the auction house.
  • Provide accurate address details – When booking your shipment, insert complete and correct address information to avoid any issues. Provide the contact details of a staff member at the auction house who can assist with the shipment.
  • Customs documentation and procedures – If you are shipping internationally to or from an auction house, check in advance which shipping documentation will be required to prevent unnecessary customs delays at the border.
  • Insurance – Most shipments arranged through Eurosender are covered by our standard insurance, with additional insurance available for purchase during the order process.

FAQ on auction courier services in Europe and internationally

Do auction courier services provide packing materials or assistance?
No, packing services are not included in the courier's price, so you will need to arrange to pack your items for shipping from the auction house.
It is best to contact the specific auction house to clarify their procedures, including whether they offer packing services for shipping items with third-party couriers and how coordination would work with them.
What is the best way to ship large items with auction courier services?
You can transport large, bulky items with our Van Delivery or Pallet Delivery options, depending on the shape. For example, you may be able to ship a canvas painting on a pallet, but van transport may be the best way to ship pieces of furniture.

Is there any insurance for items shipped to or from an auction by courier?
Although many auction courier services include insurance coverage as part of their offer, this coverage does not apply to restricted or prohibited items.
It is important to carefully review the terms and conditions of both the shipping countries and the chosen courier company to understand the extent of the insurance coverage provided and whether it applies to your specific item.
