Payment & Collection

What are the payment and collection processes?

Outright purchasers of Fine Wine

We do not broker stock. We agree on a price with our client for their wine, arrange for its collection or transfer and process payment promptly on receipt of goods.

We love finding innovative solutions for our customers, the entire sale process can be completed in one day and we are able to facilitate up to £500,000 in one transaction.


Upfront Payment Option Available

The majority of our wine stock is held at our storage partner London City Bond Vinotheque’s facility in Burton-On-Trent. We are now pleased to offer 50% upfront payment to clients who have wine stored at this site. Once a price has been agreed, we will transfer 50% of the balance prior to taking possession of your wine – the final 50% is settled on receipt of goods and condition checks. Unfortunately we are currently unable to offer this service for wine stored at other bonded facilities as we depend on independent quality checks, however, we can still provide prompt payment once we have inspected and valued your bottles.

A friendly member of our staff will organise a collection time to suit you. Due to the nature of our clients busy schedules we are now able to offer collection 7 days a week.

Upon arrival we will do a quality check of your wine. This will prevent any uncertainty about the value of your wine and allow us to settle up at the time we collect your wine.

Providing the stock meets the required standards set by The London Wine Cellar payment will be processed at the time of collection via cash, cheque or bank transfer
