When you want to sell your silver of course you can use your own courier to send it to us but the best is Royal Mail's excellent safe and secure "Special Delivery Service" which means your items are insured and trackable.   

Special Delivery Postal Service

Please read the following simple instructions carefully for a 100% satisfactory service..

PLEASE NOTE We no longer pay cash for postal gold, silver and platinum items.  We offer bank transfer or cheque, in line with new industry standard practice guidelines.



Also please note any unhallmarked or foreign hallmarked ie items that are not fully English hallmarked will be tested. This may leave a small test mark on Jewellery, which can be polished out by your local jeweller.   



1/ Just put your gold or silver in a small box  or envelope (see above) and post it to us via Royal Mail's Special Delivery Service which you should ask for when you take your box to the Post Office for posting. The cashier will weigh your items and you should have an idea of how much insurance to ask for (Use our Silver price calculator if in doubt. Items are normally insured for £500 standard but you can pay for extra insurance for a couple of pounds up to £2500. If your items are worth more than that then please send them in more than one parcel.


2/ Use our secure online print form here. No details are recorded online, so your information cannot be hacked.


3/ On receipt and within 2 working days we will work out the value of your Silver/ silver and phone you with information about the weight, & purity . We will make you a cash offer entirely based on our Silver price calculator, which is based on the London fix for Silver. If we can't get hold of you we will leave a message, but please as we are very busy only post to us if you can be contactable within a day or two and please check your messages. Otherwise it will delay our service to you & of course payment.


4/ Once we have spoken to you and confirmed you are happy we will send you the cash (or make the transfer etc ) via special delivery within one working day


5/ We will return any non-Silver items to you free of charge



6/ Of course In the unlikely event that you refuse our offer we will post your items back to you at our cost!! We promise you the very best and fairest customer service.







None, nothing whatsoever, none at all, absolutely nothing!


What if The Silver price Changes?


As many professional companies do, we mainly base our prices on the London Silver Fix price for silver which is set at 10:30am. The percentage we pay for your Silver will be the price our Silver calculator shows when we receive your items. We will then telephone you with an offer for your Silver. If the price for Silver has risen we will offer you more and if it has fallen the offer will be less. If in the unlikely event that you decide NOT to accept our offer for your Silver, your items will be returned to you by special delivery without charge.


Is the Special Delivery Postal Service Safe?


In a word "YES" The Royal Mail has a 99% success rate at delivering special delivery parcels and don't forget your items are fully insured. Make sure you insure for the right value. Your Post Office will advise you and you can use our calculator to get an approx value of your item
