We’ve teamed with Christie’s

December 19, 2016

Auction clients will now benefit from new a “bought and delivered” price before they bid.

We’re providing a new pricing and service solution that enables world-renowned auction house Christie’s to provide their clients with the “delivered” cost of an item before they bid for it.

Our new innovative system accurately estimates shipping costs, allowing lots to be exactly priced pre-sale and then efficiently and securely transported post-sale.

Moreover, if successful with a bid, buyers can subsequently pay online for the complete package, including the shipping charges.

Our new contract with Christie’s covers the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region meaning the service, which is designed to speed up the payment and purchase process, is already available in London, Amsterdam and Paris. It is supported by our global network of offices and our investment in state-of-the-art storage facilities. 

Rosalind Patient, Logistics and Fulfilment Director at Christie’s, EMERI, says: “Delivering exceptional service to our clients is of paramount importance and Crown Fine Art is helping us to achieve this with an innovative approach. It is a forward-thinking company which shares our passion and values – and its network of offices right across EMEA also enables us to benefit from a consistent service, wherever we ship to and from across the world.”
