Storage Services

Whisky Auctioneer's Storage Services

Our secure and insured storage service is charged at 2% +VAT of the hammer price of any orders you wish to keep in storage for up to 90 days.  This can be extended in blocks of 90 days at the same rate. 

Our storage services give peace of mind to customers who are looking to store their bottles in a secure facility. Whilst under our care, your whisky will be insured and expertly managed by our team. We offer a storage option that meets a variety of customers needs, whether you are looking to combine multiple orders for shipping at a later date (a great way to save on shipping costs!) or have run out of space for your growing collection at home, get in touch with our Customer Service team to discuss the best option for you.

If you would like to store items with us following an auction close then please choose the 'Storage' option when processing your shopping cart on our website. Find out more about our checkout options here.

 

FOR THOSE BASED IN THE EU OR REST OF WORLD: If any lot within your order is based in the UK, this lot will continue to be stored in the UK.  As a buyer based outside of the UK, you will NOT be liable to pay UK VAT if that order is only stored for a maximum of 90 days and then exported from the UK.  If stored in the UK for longer than 90 days, then buyers based outside the UK will be liable to pay a 20% UK VAT charge of hammer price applied.   

As an example, should a buyer based outside the UK storing bottles in the UK wish to extend their storage beyond the initial 90 day period, then when the second 90 day period commences they will be liable to pay 2% +VAT to extend AND will also be charged 20% UK VAT of the hammer price.
