I’ve bought a large item that won’t fit in my car! How can I get it home?

If you’ve bought an item too large for your car then it’s worth asking the dealer first if they can deliver it for you. If they can’t they may know someone who can. Remember you can bring your vehicle on site, from 11am onwards, at Newark and Ardingly but do pick up a vehicle pass first from the onsite office, just bring your registration number.
A number of couriers operate at the Newark and Ardingly fairs so be sure to check them out, pop into the on-site office for advice.

Our fairs are very large, so it’s important that you get the details of the person who you are making a purchase from, many of our antiques dealers have business cards you can take. You can also download sitemaps of all our fairs prior to leaving and make a note of the area you purchased from to help you remember.
