Frequently Asked Questions

Absolutely! Our service is designed to be 100% free, whether you send your items to us or request them to be returned after declining our offer.

Sending your box to us is free, easy and safe. We pay for and insure every parcel you send for a minimum of £300 using a tracked Parcelforce service. There are two ways you can send your box to us:

1) Using your pre-paid postage labels
When you order your free selling guide, we include two pre-paid postage labels and sender details stickers. After packing your box, please stick one postage label and one sender details sticker to the outside, and then take your box to any UK Post Office - click here to find your nearest Post Office branch. The Post Office will accept the parcel at no cost to you; then, we'll begin appraising your items when your box arrives in our Leeds-based facility.

2) By booking a free home collection
After signing up, you'll receive various communications to arrange your free Parcelforce home collection service. You can also contact us by phone or email to arrange your collection on a day and time that suits you. In preparation, please attach your sender details sticker to the box, but not your postage label, as your Parcelforce driver will supply this. If you receive any conflicting information, please ignore it.

We're a no obligation service, so you're welcome to decline any offer made should it not meet your expectations. If you decline our offer, we will return your whole parcel of items at no cost to yourself.

Unfortunately, we do not accept items that are not specified on our site. If you believe you have an item that would be of interest to our experts, you can call our customer service team who will be happy to assist you.

Please phone our customer service team on: 0800 246 1111 or send us an email at

A vintage advisor will call you with an offer once we've received and valued your items. You’ll get an explanation of the offer and an opportunity to ask any questions. If we are unable to reach you, we send an email and SMS message requesting you to contact us.

Maybe. Our service is designed to help you declutter in bulk, so we would prefer you to send 10 items or more. However, if you believe your item is really special, please get in touch to see if it is suitable.

Yes, you can call 0800 246 1111 Monday-Friday, 9am-6pm, email us at, or send us a message via Facebook.

Of course! Our home collection service is free for all of our customers. If you'd like to book your slot, please call us on 0800 246 1111.

We hope this never happens but if your items are damaged, we will handle any claim on your behalf. Your parcel is insured for up to £300 as standard, through Parcelforce. However, if you believe your items are worth more, we can raise your insurance to £1,000 or £10,000.

No, unfortunately, this isn’t possible. The value of an item is very dependent on quality, condition, age and demand so we must see it in person to be able to give it a fair valuation. If you are not satisfied with your offer, we will return your items free of charge so you have nothing to lose by sending them in.

If you would like some guidance on whether or not your items are suitable for us, please contact us on 0800 246 1111 or send us an email at
