Bottle Pick-Up Service

Bottle Pick-Up Service

NOTICE REGARDING CORONAVIRUS - COVID-19:  Please see our information page  regarding up-to-date information on our ways of working to ensure the safety of our staff and customers. 


We endeavour to make it as easy as possible to get your wine into our monthly global wine auctions. We frequently travel around the UK and may be able to arrange a bottle pick-up from your home, work or preferred collection point. This service is perfect if you are unable to drop your bottle(s) off at our office and would prefer not to use a courier service.  

Collections are carried out personally by our sister-site, Whisky Auctioneer, and offer a friendly expert service where no liability is left with the seller after handover.



We know that many of you are keen to speak to us about our in-house bottle pick-up service we regularly provide across the UK and Ireland. With the steps laid out for the easing of lockdown across the UK, we’re putting in place plans to resume these regular collections, along with procedures to ensure the safety of customers and employees.

If you are keen to take advantage of this service once it resumes, please make sure you pre-reserve your place today by filling out the form at the link below. Once you do so and our Customer Service Team confirms, you can rest-assured we’ll take care of getting your bottles to our auction safely and carefully, and we’ll keep you informed on the timings. 



Please note that a minimum bottle number/value will apply and that collection dates are liable to change dependent on uptake of the service in that area. 

Not in your area?  The above dates/locations are not exhaustive so please let us know where and when you require a collection and we will try to accommodate you as much as possible. 


How do I sell my wine?

To sell your wine you will firstly need to register on our website and then either deliver or post your bottle(s) to Wine Auctioneer; we do the rest! All the information you need to sell your wine can be found in our Step-by-Step Guide to Selling Wine at Auction.

How much is my wine worth?

The value of a bottle of wine is constantly fluctuating according to supply and demand. Wine Auctioneer has many years experience in the wine and auction industries and we can assist in providing you with a valuation.

Estimates are provided using recent auction sale prices where possible. Auction estimates can also be approximately derived from current retail market values (readily available online) using a rule-of-thumb calculation of 70% of retail value.

If you would like assistance with a valuation, please visit our Valuation page.

How many items can I submit to sell?

You can submit as many bottles as you like! 

What fees are involved for selling wine?

There is a £5 listing fee per lot. Once a bottle is sold, sellers pay a 5% commission on the final hammer-price.

Conditional Fees

If you wish to create one lot of mixed wines, there will be a mixed-case fee of £5.00 per lot.

If you wish to place a reserve on an item there is a fee of £5.00 per lot.

Please note VAT is charged to commission, listing and reserve fees. VAT is not applicable to the hammer price of the wine.
