We draw your attention to the following extract from our Standard Terms & Conditions of Sale:
15. Payment, Premium & Removal

15.2 Collections can normally be made (providing full and cleared payment has been received and access is available) during or at conclusion of the sale or during the hours of business as advised. Collections must be made in person by the buyer only who must present the card used for payment together with photographic identification (e.g. passport, driving license). Goods will not be released to any third party.
15.3 Horners disclaim all responsibility for accidental breakages, loss or damage to lots howsoever caused when being removed from the Site by the purchaser including unauthorised removal unless such breakage, loss, damage or removal is caused by the negligence of the Auctioneer or any employee of Horners
15.4 Collection of Purchases: All goods must be carefully checked by the purchaser prior to removal from our salerooms. We do not accept any responsibility for shortages, damage or mis-description once goods have been removed.
16. Delivery & Packing
In response to recent fraud attempts, we have been forced to revise and extend our conditions of sale to protect the interests of our clients and ourselves.
16.1 Shipping of goods will be undertaken by Horners own couriers. We only ship directly to the address registered to the payment card. We can no longer allow buyers to arrange shipping through their own couriers. We have negotiated a special contract with our couriers, (England delivery only) the service to include postage and packing for an inclusive charge of: envelope size, £10, small box up to 2kg, £20 and a parcel up to 20kg, £25. All charges subject to VAT at the current rate. Please ask for a quotation for other mainland areas and larger weights.
16.2 Overseas Buyers: Please contact us for individual quotation. Buyers must ensure they are able to comply with relevant export regulations.
Transport can be arranged for collection of your items. Charges may vary, but as a general guide, a Transit Luton van and two operatives are charged at £40 per hour plus VAT. A quotation can be provided upon request.
