The first step to selling is to receive a valuation. Our auction valuations are free and can be obtained in the following ways:


You can post or email us a photograph. Once received we will then contact you to discuss your options further.


You can bring in your property for valuation. Although we are able to estimate the value of your property from photographs and descriptions, and this is a good starting point, a more accurate valuation can be provided when seeing the object first hand. Please contact us to make an appointment with one of our specialists.  We also hold several valuation days per annum, no appointment is necessary on these days.


If your property is too large to bring in for valuation, we will be happy to make an appointment for a house visit.


When your items are entered for sale you will be given a receipt for your goods. Following this we will then research where necessary and fully catalogue the lots, entering them into whichever auction is most appropriate. Shortly prior to the auction you will receive a pre-sale advice notice detailing your items, their estimates and reserves.
