Selling

We can sell single items, collections or whole house contents. Our valuers offer a complete professional auction service from your initial enquiry - including a home visit if required, giving estimates on value, arranging transport, advertising, photography - right through to a cheque arriving in the post approximately two and a half weeks after the sale!

If you would like to deliver your goods to the salerooms or office, please contact us to book a time.

If you would like us to arrange collection and delivery on your behalf we use local experienced removers and the cost is deducted from the proceeds of the sale. We can even arrange a complete clearance of your property leaving it ready for sale.
