SOME FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What are your upcoming auction dates?
Are your offices open to collect or drop-off?

Once you have won an auction, or we have agreed to list your bottle, you can collect or drop off a bottle to us. In both cases we ask that you  be in touch so as our Auctions team are here to help. Our shop at 834 Colombo Street, Christchurch is open for drop-off or collection on weekdays 9:30am-6pm. Be sure to ring in advance to make an appointment on 03 377 6824.

Sellers: How do I get my bottle to you?

Once we have agreed to consign your bottle to a Whisky Galore Auction we need to receive and photograph it at least 2 weeks in advance of the auction date. Late deliveries may not be included in the auction.

You can of course bring your bottle to us in person, or send it to us via courier. If you wish to drop your bottle off in person, we ask that you get in touch in advance so as our experts are on hand to guide you through the process. Shipping is not without risk, so it is strongly advised that you pack your bottle with great care, and be sure that you are insured against damage or loss in transit (most couriers in NZ offer such a service). Address the parcel to: Whisky Galore Auctions, 834 Colombo Street, Christchurch, 8013 NZ, Please note that we are open 9:30am- 6pm weekdays.
