( i.e if you buy something for £100, including the premium it will cost £124).

In-house Shipping

At Leighton Hall Auctions, we are proud to offer an in-house shipping service for most of the items sold within our auctions. We can post small items to include pottery, jewellery, collectables amongst much more! We aim to ensure the item(s) arrive safe and sound at the given address and we aim to achieve this by sending out lots in double-walled cardboard boxes along with the use of bubble wrap and loosefill to ensure the items cant move when in transit. We post the majority of our parcels with Parcelforce on an express service. Our minimum charge for the shipping service is £12.50 plus VAT for single items. We can combine postage but only when safe and practical to do so! If you would like to find out more about our postal service, please contact the office!


For furniture and larger items that we can't post, we welcome collections via a courier though please note these will need to be pre-arranged with your own couriers. We do work closely with a range of trustworthy couriers and we are happy to recommend those couriers if requested.
