Getting Your Wines Delivered


Collect the Wines Yourself

Collections from any storage location will always be free.

If you arrange your own collection, please give us 48 hours notice to package and release the wines to you or your chosen courier.


Taversham’s Delivers

We understand that getting wines delivered can be expensive.

Our aim is that deliveries will be charged to you ‘at-cost’. However, we charge a minimum of £20.

If you would like your Winning Bids delivered, let us know and we will quote depending on which Lots you have won.

Duty-Paid Deliveries

We store, package and dispatch ‘Duty-Paid’ deliveries ourselves. These are delivered by APC Direct and are calculated based on weight.

Where multiple ‘Duty-Paid’ Lots are purchased, we will consolidate packaging as much as we can to keep delivery costs as low as possible.

Guide Delivery Prices for Mainland UK:

Quantity Cost Weight
1 – 12 Bottles £20 Up to 20 kg
12 – 60 Bottles £35 Up to 40 kg
60+ Bottles POA  

In-Bond Deliveries

‘In-Bond’ Lots will be delivered by the London City Bond transport team, to a UK Address or transferred to a UK Bonded Storage Account.

We will consolidate purchases of multiple lots into one single delivery, where possible.

Quantity Estimated Cost Per Case
1 – 5 Cases £15
6 – 10 Cases £10
60+ Bottles POA

Please note, that wines removed from bonded storage will be liable for UK Duty and VAT.

Consolidated Deliveries

We will always aim to consolidate the deliveries from the same location. Although we are unable to consolidate purchases from multiple locations.

Where Are My Wines Kept?

Before the Auction, Lots are generally offered from one of two locations depending on their duty status.

Auction Lots offered ‘Duty-Paid’ are stored at our head office in Suffolk, NR34 7HB

Please be aware that winning bidding on In-Bond & Duty-Paid Lots will require two separate delivery charges.

On occasion, wines may be offered from a 3rd Party Location and this will be detailed in the Lot Information.


Can You Store My Wines?

Yes.

For Long Term, In-Bond storage, especially for high-value wines we can open an Account for you with our sister company The Wine Tunnels. You’ll have a storage account in your name and storage costs are charged yearly.

We can also store Duty-Paid wines, for a short time at our head office address, prior to collection or delivery. This is offered on a case-by-case basis, please get in touch to enquire about short-term storage.
