Collection & Shipping


We request that you pay for, and arrange a collection as soon as possible.

This can be in person or by courier, as soon as payment is received.

If you are arranging for a courier to collect your items, you will need to book an appointment on their behalf. Please see the list below of courier companies who will be happy to assist you, we would advise that you obtain a quote for costs beforehand. You are, of course, very welcome to use an alternative courier.

All collections, unless stated otherwise, will be from our Colchester auction room.



Reeman Dansie are able to provide an in-house postage and packing service for UK delivery only, of small unbreakable items, ie. jewellery, watches, coins, medals etc. This is a discretionary service, limited to a maximum weight of 2kg and items that would fit into a package no larger than a shoe box.

If you have purchased fragile lots, larger items or goods requiring overseas shipping, details for independent shipping companies/couriers can be found here.


Independant Shipping Couriers

If you have purchased fragile lots, larger items or goods requiring overseas shipping, we can provide the details for independent shipping companies.

To see a list of these couriers, please click here. 

If you wish to have an item shipped to your address, these shippers are able to visit Reeman Dansie to assess the item and suggest a quote. You are of course, welcome to use an alternative shipper of your choice; please deal with them directly to obtain your quote and then let us know if they have been instructed to collect your purchase(s). 

The shippers listed, operate independently of Reeman Dansie, so postage and packaging will need to be organised and paid directly to their team. Upon being paid, the shippers will send their team to Reeman Dansie to collect the item and organise shipping.


Storage Charges

Due to the regularity of our auctions and frequent consignment of new lots, please note that furniture bought in a Fine Art & Antiques Sale, will only be held at our premises for a limited time following the auction. The date of removal will be specified on our online catalogue preceding the sale, as well as on the invoice following the sale. All items of furniture, following the specified date, will be collected by R & D Schofield Removals and stored at their off-site storage facility, six miles northeast of our saleroom, at a cost per lot of £10 + VAT and £1 per day storage thereafter.
