Storage & shipping

We request that all payments are made remotely prior to coming to Chorley's saleroom where possible to avoid delays during collection. Payments can be accessed by logging into your account. 



Unless otherwise agreed with the Auctioneers, any client with lots remaining at the saleroom later than the Friday after the auction will incur an administration charge of £10, plus storage fees of £2 per lot per day (all subject to VAT).

Packing & Postage

Chorley’s offer a packing and postage service within the UK on small non-breakable items only. This service is available at our discretion, and there are certain items we do not pack or ship including but not limited to ceramics, glass, paintings or framed and glazed artwork, arms or weaponry.

Packing charges start at £15 per package plus postage by Royal Mail Special Delivery (packing charges are subject to VAT).
