What Our Customers Say:

Excellent service from Eastbourne Auctions despite getting a bit carried away and buying a lot not suitable for packing and postage, they bent over backwards to help me get it safely to York by my own courier. The lots that were suitable for their in-house service were delivered within 3 or 4 days beautifully wrapped and packed and very reasonably priced. Makes buying at a distant auction house all worthwhile! Thanks guys!

I won an auction for some expensive jewellery and as I live 300 miles away I asked about postage but then changed my mind despite their offer to increase the amount of insurance to cover it. For safety I decided to collect in person despite the distance but couldn't do so for 2 weeks. However they were happy to hold my items for me and I collected them yesterday. Very pleasant and helpful communication via email
