The Selling Process:
Contact us with either a request for a valuation/quotation or to sell (VQS) your Champagne(s).
Confirm the label(s) you wish for VQS by email detailing numbers / producers. Include in your email photographs of the bottle(s) that should include a close up of the label, the foil area and if possible, a closer up image showing the clarity of the wine inside and the level either via the neck of the bottle or by turning the bottle upside to and photographing the wine level.
We will send you a reply email with either further questions and/or an offer.
You/we may prefer a site visit, especially for volume VQS, to be agreed by email and a follow up telephone call. For volume VQS we can offer the services of our Master of Wine, Christopher Burr, who upon an agreed fee will visit your premises and offer a fully detailed valuation/quotation.
Upon agreement of sale, we request that the wines are sent, safely packaged, and by recorded/registered/signed for postage. We can also arrange a meeting in central London (Lancaster Gate).
Once we receive your parcel we will inform you of safe arrival or any transportation issues/damages. We will study the wines and on most occasions at that point we will pay the agreed amount via bank transfer which we will then request your bank details. If we arrange a meeting in London or we have visited your premises, we will confirm a price on site and pay immediately via bank transfer then arrange a convenient time for collection. Unfortunately we can not pay cash.
If any wine(s) sent are felt to be below the stated quality we will revalue and if no new price is agreed, Champagne Collectors will return the items at our cost. If wines are sent which are not as per description to include counterfeit, we reserve the right to charge the seller for the return of their items.
