Changes in distribution:

The first time you place a bid you will be asked if you would like to collect your purchased lots at Blomqvist Kunsthandel or if you would like to have your purchased lots sent to a wine monopoly in Bergen, Sandefjord, Stavanger, Trondheim, Ålesund or Hamar. If you choose one of these wine monopolies, the cost for transport will be NOK 150 per 12 bottles. Unfortunately, neither Blomqvist or Vinmonopolet can send bottles abroad.

Changes in bottle collection in Oslo:

The collection deadline has been extended from one week to 14 days. If lots are not collected within this time, you will receive a warning that storage charges will be accrued and shortly afterwards you will be charged NOK 140 in storage charges per week there after (not including public holidays).
