Due to a busy sales schedule, we cannot store sold items of furniture and other large pieces at the saleroom. All items not collected within four working days of the auction (by 4pm) will be automatically removed to commercial storage and subject to a storage charge of £20 (plus VAT) per lot and to a further storage charge of £2 (plus VAT) per lot per part or the whole day after that. Where a buyer has bought a mixture of large and small pieces, the entire consignment will be sent to storage. Please note that for large consignments, there may be additional charges. These charges will be the sole liability of the purchaser and will be billed directly to them by Bradleys Furniture Carriers Ltd. 

Purchasers who instruct Bradleys Furniture Carriers Ltd as their carriers/shippers will benefit from reduced or waivered storage charges. 

On payment of all sales and storage costs, items will be available for collection by appointment from Bradleys Furniture Carriers (Darlington, DL1 1AT). T: +44 1325 281332, E: 

Staff at the saleroom will be unable to answer questions relating to items removed from the saleroom. Bradleys Furniture Carriers Ltd sets the charges. We recommend contacting them directly regarding these charges and other storage-related queries. 

Collections from the Saleroom 

Collections from our Ripon saleroom are available Monday to Friday (9am-5pm). Collections are not possible at weekends. You can collect in person, instruct your shipper, or choose our recommended shipper listed below. Please note that we do not offer a shipping service ourselves. 


We do not offer a shipping service, but we give you below the details of our recommended shipper, who would be happy to quote you for the despatch of your items. Please note that lots will be released once they are paid for in full, and the shipping cost is payable directly to the company concerned. We will also need your prior authorisation before we release goods to any packer/shipper.

We regret that, as we have no packing facilities, we cannot pack your lots for your shipper or carrier to collect, so if you intend to arrange your own method of transport, please ensure that the firm you employ understands that they will also need to pack.
