When you sell with us, we take your Whisky to an international audience and have access to many more buyers than at a local auction house.
This, combined with the low rates of commission that we offer, means that you'll acheive better prices with us.
Whisky Auctions Edinburgh can offer free collection from most locations in mainland UK (minimum valuations apply).
Whisky Auctions Edinburgh collect the sellers Whisky from their home or workplace using a tracked and insured courier service.
In central Scotland this is usually collection by us, in person, we aim to meet customers one-to-one where practical. Elsewhere in the UK collection is by courier arranged by Whisky Auctions Edinburgh.
Please call to discuss the best collection method prior to buying packing materials.
Note that insurance covers complete loss, not breakages, however breakages are extremely rare and are usually a result of inadequate packaging - we recommend using our custom packing crates which are fully refundable for items sold at our auctions.
Prior to the auction Whisky is photographed for the auction and then boxed, shelved and stored at our secure storage warehouse, where it remains until auction end.
Custom packing crates can be ordered from us to ensure that your Whisky is packaged correctly.
The packing can be re-used and the cost of the packing materials will be refunded for packaged items that are sold.
To order, please see category 'packing' in the 'Auctions and Shop' section of the website.
Please call us if you would like to discuss this further.
Once payment has been received from buyers, sellers will be sent payment immediately.
Please note that any lot submitted for auction must be expected to reach at least £20. A withdrawal fee of £12 applies should you decide to not to sell after submission.
