Why choose the auction process?

In a constantly evolving antiques and collectables market, you may well have a hidden treasure waiting to be found. For example, in 2020 we found a £400,000 teapot in a Derbyshire garage! Unlike many auctioneers, we do not cherry pick or delegate out items of lesser value to other firms - we handle the entire clearance.

You can have the confidence that higher value and more specialised items will be uncovered, professionally assessed and offered in the relevant sale.

Items are sold in online-only auctions and our sales centres cater for all aspects of the collectors and antique world - from household effects to jewellery and fine art, cars to medals and fine wines.

Many items discovered among the contents of a house clearance may be worth far more than you imagine so, if you are not sure, it is always wise to ask our antique experts. It is our responsibility to maximise the proceeds of the sale on your behalf.

When clients are downsizing or emigrating, we can advise and organise haulage and sale through auction of any excess furniture, ornaments, pictures, electricals, tools and garden ornaments to suit a time schedule.

Naturally, free home visits are available to arrange quotations.

Paperwork and sale proceeds

General receipts are given at the time of collection for goods consigned to auction with us. Email or postal notification is sent approximately a week prior to the auction advising clients of date of sale(s), lot numbers and pre-sale estimates.

Once everything has been sold, an itemised cheque with all fees deducted is sent by post to the account holder. Bank transfer of funds can be made on request.


Our initial advice is free of charge and we are always delighted to share our expertise - know the price before you sell. Quotes for house clearances, probate and downsizing solutions are given on an individual basis based on location, timings and logistics.
