New Service Announcement: Sell and Buy your bottles from our EU office

Back to news

We are delighted to announce the expansion of services from our EU office. We know our EU customer base has experienced a significant change in how they get bottles to and from our UK office since the beginning of the year and we have received many queries about this.

In order to continue to provide the high level of service our customers expect from us, we have worked hard in recent weeks to develop our EU office as an additional location from which bottles will be sold in our regular auctions.

These changes will be implemented fully for our April auction (live 2 April), but EU-based sellers can get bottles to us now to ensure inclusion (Contact us now to make sure that your bottles are included for our April auction). 

The widening of our core operations into Europe marks a significant milestone for Rum Auctioneer. We are thrilled that our already established base in Germany can facilitate these changes and allow us to continue to provide an industry leading auction experience for all.
