Except for pick up sales, all items with delivery will incur a freight charge, which includes handling, packaging and insurance. It is important that you check the delivery charge for your item before placing a bid or a sale order by using the Shipping Calculator.
The Shipping Calculator calculates the cost to deliver an item to a nominated postcode and is located in all lot descriptions so you can view all Freight charges before bidding on a particular item.
Simply click on the Truck symbol and it will automatically calculate freight charges to your registered delivery address. Freight to your postcode will then be broken down into 'shipment rate' and 'per item rate'. Freight is calculated by adding the 'shipment rate' and then the 'item rate'
The shipment rate is the base rate depending on the zone of destination - metro/regional and country
The per the item rate depends on the weight and size of the item
To calculate for 1 item:
- Shipment rate + item rate = total cost
To calculate for multiple units of the same item:
- Shipment rate + (item rate x multiples of the units) = total cost
Please note: Items purchased from different sales are unable to be consolidated. We are unable to consolidate freight on certain items, such as wine, high value jewellery, large palletised items, supermarket lines and certain artworks.
