Auction House Shipping UK

The internet has made it easier than ever for collectors and dealers of rare books and antiques to track down, locate, and bid on valuable pieces when they are offered for auction.  At RF Shipping & Logistics, a large part of our trade is concerned with picking up articles from auction houses UK wide, preparing them for shipping, and arranging delivery to locations throughout the world.  As one of our key services, having detailed knowledge of and maintaining a good working relationship with each of these institutions is vital.

As specialists in all forms of collectable art, Chiswick Auctions are one of the foremost auction houses in the world.  From their South Kensington and Chiswick locations, pieces are quickly and securely driven to our Acton warehouse for packing, before being dispatched to their international destinations.

Sotheby’s Auctions deal, not only in art, but also in jewellery, furniture, and designer accessories for the home and the individual.  Their exhibitions are as educational as they are glamorous, and we frequently collect packages from their premises for international buyers.  Sotheby’s were the first international auction house, and now has offices in forty countries.  Their exclusive retail lines are also popular among discriminating clients.

Many of the antiques and pieces art we have shipped may have passed through the Bonhams Auction House over the years, and our staff are frequent visitors at their New Bond Street and Knightsbridge salerooms.

Founded in 1766 by James Christie, Christie’s Auctions is one of the most famous names in the industry.  With a presence in 46 countries, Christie’s offers about 350 auctions annually in over 80 categories, including all areas of fine and decorative arts, collectibles, wine, jewellery, photographs, and more.

We also collect from locations across the UK, such as Mallams Auctioneers of Oxford.
