Storage Charges and Policy changes.
South Dublin Auction has been super lenient with regard to collection of paid goods and storage of same over the last 18 months. Even although we have a 12,000 square foot warehouse we are now at capacity and its greatly affecting our ability to run our business.
Any lot bought at auction must be paid by the Following Wednesday by Close of business or the goods will be lost. We will hold goods that have been paid for without charge for 12 days starting on the day after the auction for Collection. If lots are not collected within 12 days on the thirteenth day a storage charge will then be applied at a rate of €5 a lot for smaller lots and €10 a lot for Furniture and bigger items. This charge will be applied weekly until the goods are collected. Prior to collecting goods after the 12th day you will need to pay the storage charge before the goods are released. These rules also applies to goods being collected by couriers. If you do buy from our sale please ensure you can collect with 12 days or be prepared to pay storage charges. As soon as the storage charges exceed the hammer price of the goods they will be re-auctioned to offset against the storage charges. There will be no warning or reminders.
Goods in our building for more than 3 months: Any items left here for more than 3 months will be resold with immediate effect to cover our cost for holding those goods for that length of time without recompense. With our rent, rates and service charges exceeding €150,000 PA there is a huge financial cost to storing goods and the number of uncollected items has prevented us from having regular classic car auction and more recently not being able to clear houses or move goods which is vital to a weekly auction. We have mentioned the collection of goods every week for the past several months but we are now at a critical position with regard to capacity. No other auction house in the world offers unlimited free storage.
In order to facilitate the collection of more goods we have lengthened our collection times on Monday until 5pm. If you need to collect goods for multiple weeks please contact Arianna for a collection date and for the goods to be gathered in advance. You can call Arianna on 01-429-8792 or [email protected]. If you are on the schedule your goods will not be resold - although contact alone is not enough you must have an agreed pick up time with Arianna or Ken.
1. Collect your goods with 12 days of the auction to avoid storage charges.
2. If its here for more than 3 months its lost without any compensation.
3. We are now open until 5pm on Mondays for collections.
4. Multiple week historical collections must be booked in advance.
Collection Times. Monday 10-5 pm. Tuesday closes for cataloging, Wednesday 10-5, Thursday closed, Friday 10-5 and Saturday 10-1 pm. (We close for lunch 12.30-1.30 Mon-Wed-Fri)
