CITES: Please be aware of any CITES import / export implications before placing a bid and when arranging shipping. Not all of the shippers listed below will deal with CITES applications. Please check with them first.

All non-UK buyers should be aware that if the UK leaves the EU on 29th March 2019 without a deal, import and export certification will be required to enable any guitars made with any amount of rosewood to leave the UK. 

Below you will find the companies we recommend for the packing and shipping of guitars. We do not carry out postage for guitars in house, for the main reason that our recommended packers can not only offer a bespoke service but also offer a more cost effective service.

Part & Parcel UK

We recommend Part & Parcel for shipping requirements. Part & Parcel have provided us with a handy table to work out roughly what it will cost to ship guitars within the UK. This also includes an idea of cost saving for multiple consignments.
