LOSS AND BREAKAGE ASSURANCE

Loss and Breakage Assurance

In order to lower risks associated with transporting winning lots, Rum Auctioneer recommends that you collect your lots directly from our premises in Perth, Scotland. Should this not be possible, or you would prefer to have your lots shipped to you, then liability for both loss and damage rests with the purchaser. 

While our team takes every effort to package and dispatch orders carefully and securely, the courier companies do not take on any liability for items lost or broken in transit. To address this, Rum Auctioneer offers our customers ‘Loss & Breakage Assurance’ in order to provide a method to cover items lost or broken in transit. 

The cost of Loss & Breakage Assurance is 3% of the hammer price plus commission. By purchasing ‘Loss & Breakage Assurance’ when checking out, your lots will be protected against loss or breakage in transit. 

Please note that Loss & Breakage Assurance provides cover for breakage and loss during transit only – Loss & Breakage Assurance does not cover any loss arising from an item’s condition. Therefore, it will not protect against seal failures or cosmetic damage to lots.  

For your convenience, Loss & Breakage Assurance is automatically selected at the checkout stage.  However, if you do not wish to take out Loss & Breakage Assurance on your purchase, please de-select this when completing your order.
