Register Bottles

Register your items with us using our Lot Registration Form. Each Lot registration costs £3 +VAT which will be deducted from monies transferred to you on completion of sale.

Please complete the form to the best of your knowledge, ensure that you disclose any damage to the bottles and include any special facts about that you would like to include in the lot description.

We will also provide the option to place a reserve price on any of your lots to ensure a minimum hammer price. An additional fee of £4 (+VAT) per lot will be charged if you would like to add a reserve price.

During this stage you will be asked to select which transit method you would like and how you would like to be paid after the auction.

Once you have completed your registration you will receive an e-mail confirming that we have received your lot registration.

In order to prepare an item for auction, it must be with us at least prior to the bottle drop-off deadline.
