Choose Shipping Method

Once you have registered your bottles for selling, you will be asked to select one of the following shipping methods:

  • Courier Collection: You can either arrange to send your bottles to us using a courier of your choice and have it shipped to us. Alternatively, you can contact our team to arrange the courier collection on your behalf.
  • Bottles should be well packaged in bubble-wrap and placed into a strong box suitable for transport. You should include your completed bottle registration form so we can identify the bottle with the seller. It is also worth choosing to insure the package in case of any loss or damage as Prestige Whisky Auction will not be liable for goods in transit to us. 
  • Personal Collection: Prestige Whisky Auction can arrange a personal collection upon request. Our staff will collect and transport your bottle to our warehouse and arrangements can be made prior to submitting your bottle registration form.
  • Drop-off: Our storage facility is in Central Scotland, just 15 minutes from Glasgow and 30 minutes from Edinburgh. We are happy for you to deliver your bottles to us by appointment prior to submitting your bottle registration form.

Upon receipt of your bottles, our team will prepare each lot for the next auction. All bottles are thoroughly checked for authenticity, damage and anything else that we feel should be highlighted to prospective buyers. We will then register and professionally photograph your listing to ensure it catches the eye of our global buyers at auction. We may also use these photographs for marketing items in our upcoming auctions.
