How To Ship Items You’ve Won On Auction

“ Congratulations! You are the highest bidder of lot number 112.” 

If you’ve ever participated in an online auction where the items you had to bid on were in another province, you may have initially been skeptical about how you are going to ship the items you’ve won on auction. 

We have compiled a mini guide on how you can ship the auction items you’ve won, regardless of whether it’s a vehicle or an appliance. 

You’ve Won An Auction Item In The Furniture and Appliances Category 

You’ve recently participated in one of Alf Duncan Auctioneers auctions and won an item. You’re feeling victorious, as expected but start worrying about how your items will get shipped to you. 

According to one of our bidders,  who’s a regular Alph Duncan Auctioneers bidder, Alph Duncan Auctioneers ship the items you have won straight to your address. So you don’t have to worry about the admin and logistics involved in finding a courier service once you’ve paid for  your auction item invoice as well as shipping costs. 

But what happens if you’ve bid in another Furniture and Appliance Auction where the auctioneer/ company doesn’t have a shipping service on hand? Which courier service can you contact? 

The Courier Guy

Clients who have used The Courier Guy swear by the efficiency of the company’s service delivery. With over 100 branches in South Africa and a few internationally, The Courier Guy is just the courier service you should consider when wanting to ship the items you’ve won on auction. 

If you’ve won an auction item in a different province, these are the steps you must follow in order to get your items shipped to you: 

If you don’t have a Courier Guy Account and are looking to ship the item on a once off basis, you can use their Once Off Portal  or their Courier Butler option and follow the prompts. 

If on the other hand, you’re looking to ship the items you have won on a regular basis, you can sign up for an account, you can contact the Courier Guy on how you can create an account with them. 

Not sure if the items you’ve won are shipped by The Courier Guy? Here is a packaging dos and don’ts list that should help with how to package your items . 

You’ve Won An Auction Item In The Trucks and Vehicles Category

This category is tricky because you can’t simply box and ship a truck or vehicle but you can use Onelogix.
