All items sent to us must be via Royal Mail Special Delivery. All items posted to us are at your own risk. It is your responsibility to obtain and retain a receipt showing tracking code for posting with Royal Mail via Post Office. This receipt will be required as well as any other supporting documentation and photographs of items should there be a need for any insurance claim.

It is your responsibility to keep safe all documentation relating to your property that would be useful in support of an insurance claim, including, but not limited to any purchase receipts, shipping receipts, certificates, valuations, insurance documents or photos.

Please note the following clause [from Royal Mail’s insurance claim processes]: “Royal Mail needs to ensure that unwarranted claims are not made and as such it retains the right to request further information from the claimant and to refuse claims that it suspects are unwarranted”.

Subject to the terms of Clause 4 above, you agree that we are not liable in any way if Royal Mail refuse any insurance claims in relation to your property. The items are insured by Royal Mail for up to £750 whilst in transit to Goldplus.

If you wish to increase the insurance level to either £1000.00 or £2500.00 you must pay an additional fee at the Post Office. If we buy the items via our online Buyback or Gold selling service, we will refund the cost of the increased insurance provided that the items you have sent in the insured pack do have a higher value than £750. We will need to see the receipt from the Post Office before this refund can be processed. If for any reason we do not buy your items, no refund will be made against any extra insurance you may have taken out.

You must list the quantities and description of the items you are sending us on the form provided and complete your details in full and sign the Customer Declaration of ownership.

You acknowledge that as a result, we may be required to retain, surrender, or destroy such items. If we are obliged to retain, surrender, or destroy your items pursuant to this clause, we shall have no liability to you for doing so. We will try to inform you of our actions under this clause unless we are requested not to do so by the Authorities.

On safe receipt of your precious metals posting pack a recording will be made opening and cross checking the items against completed form. This recording will be kept until either our valuation offer has been accepted and paid to you or in the unlikely event of you not accepting our offer, the items have been returned and received by you. This recording can be made available to you on request.

Your items may be tested by our trained experts to determine their value, based on that day’s precious metal markets. This process may involve using either acid, filing or electronic testing. You accept that the valuation process may result in tarnishing, staining and/or scratches. By sending us your items you accept this process, and we are not liable for any damage or diminution in value to your property because of this process.

Goldplus accepts gemstones. However, it may cost more to remove a gemstone from its setting than its value to us, therefore they have no intrinsic value. Should a gemstone of significant intrinsic value be identified, this will be considered when making an offer.

We will endeavour to contact you by telephone or email with an offer which will be valid until 5pm that same day. The valuation offer may be subject to change if we are unable to reach you on that day. This is because the gold fix and other precious metals prices change daily. Once we have spoken to you and confirmed that you are happy to accept our offer, we will pay by bank transfer into your nominated UK bank account which we will confirm by email.

In exceptional circumstances we will make cash payment; however, we will deduct the delivery costs from your payment. If returned items or cash payment are not able to be delivered by the Royal Mail because they have been unable to obtain a signature, they will leave an instruction card. If the package is returned to the local delivery office, it will need to be collected within a period specified by the Royal Mail. If, however, the package is not collected within this time, it will be returned to us. On receipt of the returned items or cash payment, we will endeavour to contact you to arrange for the items to be re-sent, however there will be a charge of £20 to cover the additional postage and administration costs.

Once an offer is made and accepted the items cannot be returned. If after 28 days, we have been unable to contact you we will send payment for your items to the name and address provided. If you do not want to accept the offer you have 7 days to return the payment plus an administration and storage fee and your items will be returned to you. If you have not returned relevant payment within this time, we will assume the offer has been accepted and the items will sold/scrapped where appropriate. For returned items that have been sent back to us because they have not been collected after delivery has been attempted, payment must be received within 21 days of contacting you or we reserve the right to purchase the items at our current gold price with a deduction of £20 for our administration costs and storage and insurance fee of £5 per week.

Subject to the other provisions of these Terms, if you or we decide not to enter into a Buyback agreement or immediate sale we will despatch your property back to you within 5 working days of you or us notifying the other that we will not be entering into a Buyback or immediate sale agreement. You will receive email confirmation of despatch, including your tracking code on the day of despatch. If you decide to enter into a Buyback agreement with us, we will arrange for the items that you have sold to us under the Buyback scheme to be returned to you in accordance with the buyback agreement.

If you decide to resend us the items, please be aware as the gold prices fluctuate daily. We cannot guarantee your original offer; however, it could work in your favour if the applicable metal price was to rise. We will return the items free of charge, however if the same items come back to us again or under a different name/account there will be a £20 fee to return them. Your payment must be received within 28 days, or the items will be disposed of.

If you send items (knowingly or unknowingly) containing no precious metals, there is a minimum £20 fee for returning them, or we can dispose of them free of charge. Your payment must be received within 28 days, or your items will be disposed of.

If items are sent to us without a completed customer form, it is unlikely we will be able to identify the sender unless the name and address has been written in the Special Delivery envelope. We will hold these items for a period of 6 months in a secure area. Customers claiming items will be required to provide a full and detailed description before and offer is made. Once we have confirmed a successful lost property claim, we will make payment for items at our current price, If the items have been held more than 3 months, a deduction will be made from this payment to cover our storage and administration costs. If a claim is not made within 6 months, the items will be refined to recover our storage and insurance costs of £5 per week. If a claim is made after the items have been refined, a payment will be made for any outstanding amount due.

If you wish to submit a claim to Goldplus, you must notify Goldplus immediately to request a claim form. To be processed, the claim form must be fully and accurately completed, signed, and posted to Goldplus in accordance with the claim form instructions. You must submit any and a supporting documentation with the completed and signed form. Failure to properly complete, sign and post the claim form may result in the denial of the claim by Goldplus. There is a 14-day processing period from the time the claim form is received by Goldplus and the claim processed. Your statutory rights remain unaffected.

We will not be liable for anything that is not caused by us or in our control, such as any loss or damage caused by a carrier, your inadequate packaging or failure to address a package correctly, or us having to carry out legal obligation in respect of your property.
