FAQs

Do I have to pay VAT?

If you are within the E.U, 20% Value Added Tax (VAT) is applicable to all fees and surcharges.

Delivery charges are subject to VAT.

Please note that VAT is not applicable to the hammer price of the wine.

Why do bids start at £5 and not £0?

Due to the governing laws for licensing in Scotland, there is a minimum price for alcohol units. As a result we have introduced a minimum bid price for each item, £5 will be the starting bid for most bottles of wine, but this will be calculated on a lot by lot basis.  

How long does it take to receive my winning lot(s)?

If you are successful at auction, once payment is received by Wine Auctioneer then your wine will be dispatched within 7 working days.

UK orders normally arrive within two days of dispatch. 

European orders normally arrive within five days of dispatch.

The rest of the world can vary dependent on location. 

If you need an item faster, please let us know and we will try our hardest to meet your expectations!
