Delivery Information

Your goods will be delivered to you – Here’s how it works….

All deliveries will be contactless

To keep us all safe, deliveries will be made without the need for a signature acknowledgement. For most deliveries we will not be entering your premises. Goods will be left at the front of your home or apartment building. You will need to make arrangements to take your items inside. For parcel deliveries we will also assume an authority to leave them at your property.

Small packages and boxes

We recommend Sendle as a low cost option for parcel deliveries. Sendle offers a parcel tracking service and will communicate directly with you via SMS or email to advise of your delivery status. Deliveries are usually collected from Abbeys on the next business day and should be delivered to most parts of Australia within 7 days.

Furniture and large orders with multiple boxes

Your furniture and bulk items will be delivered by the Abbeys team or our engaged carriers. Delivery will usually occur in the week following the auction. Weekend deliveries can be arranged.

What about insurance?

It is the buyer’s responsibility to arrange insurance.

In order to keep your costs down, all parcels and boxes will be sent without insurance unless you let us know otherwise. Please tell us if you require insurance and we will quote and arrange this for you.

For smaller items we suggest Australia Post which has an insurance option. Insurance value will be based on auction value.

Can I arrange someone else to collect my goods for me?

Yes, Contactless Collection (also called “Click and collect”) is strictly by appointment. Please call us to make arrangements or click here for more information.  Make sure the person collecting your goods is aware of our contactless pick-up process and can quote your buyer number on arrival.

What if my goods are damaged?

Despite everyone’s best efforts, sometimes damage does occur. We do not accept responsibility for goods once they have left our care. However if damage does occur in transit, please call us within 24 hours of receipt and we’ll do our best to sort it for you.

Please call us for more information.
