Shipping Policy

Batemans is pleased to be able to offer a bespoke in house packing and shipping service for most smaller items, including jewellery, watches, medals, coins, collectables, etc, and smaller group lots (generally those weighing below 2kg).
The minimum charge is £15.00 and increases depending on difficulty and time required to pack items safely.
We will only send items through a secure tracked service, and will NOT send via 1st or 2nd class post.
If you think we can help with packing and shipping please contact our office by email or telephone, or by using the ‘Request Postage Quote’ button when you click through to your view your invoice as described above in 'Payments'.

This in house service however is undertaken entirely at the buyer's risk - whilst we endeavour to pack items as well as we can, we will NOT be held responsible for any damage or loss to items sent. By paying for our in house packing and shipping service the buyer agrees that any items sent are entirely at the buyer's risk and that NO compensation can be offered for any loss or damage.

For most items buyers are therefore advised to contact one of the following firms to arrange collection, packing and shipping on their behalf, otherwise collection can of course be made in person.

For large, delicate, or awkward items it may also be worth obtaining a quote from a 'Man & Van' courier to see if this is a better option - we have many helpful contacts having dealt with a large number of couriers over the years and can provide contact details of an appropriate company on request.
