UPDATE REGARDING CORONAVIRUS GUIDELINES
Due to the government advice regarding mass public gatherings we are postponing the Auction scheduled for Wednesday March 25th.
We are working on a new strategy which will be posted on our website, facebook & in the Western Morning News. This is likely to involve all our lots having a photograph accompanying our lot descriptions.
We will probably extend our viewing times over an extended period with booked slots to avoid large numbers of people being in the auction room at any one time.
We are also looking at implementing on-line bidding.
We apologise to all our clients for the inconvenience caused but we are in unprecedented times & we must ensure the safety of clients & staff.
We will update everyone as soon as we have worked out our new operating structure but we will be trading in the very near future in whichever way is possible.

Traditionally held in the Market Hall in the centre of town, the Auction moved to its permanent site at Fatherford in June 2007, due to the redevelopment of the Market Hall into a cinema.
With traffic and parking in the town centre having become an increasing problem over recent years the ample parking and easy access to the edge of town auction room has been a real bonus to our customers.
Our auctions are held regularly throughout the year, with goods in all categories being taken in throughout the month by appointment.
Each auction has between 800 - 1000 lots. Outside lots, garden effects & tools are sold first, then small items including china, glass, collectables, silver, jewellery and pictures are sold followed by furniture, furnishings, household goods and miscellanea.
We are happy to give free advice and estimates to our customers and to help with setting suitable reserve prices where relevant.
Our Auctions are featured in the Western Morning News Antiques supplement on the Saturday prior to each sale.
The viewing takes place from 10am- 1pm Monday 12p.m. - 6.p.m. on the Tuesday and from 8.30a.m. on the day of the sale, with the sale commencing at 10 a.m. Our auctions are sold at around 200 lots per hour.
Goods can be paid for and collected during the sale and until 6p.m. on sale day and between 10a.m. - 2p.m. on the Thursday. If these times are not convenient for collection we can offer other slots by appointment in the following few days.
Payments to our vendors are sent out by First Class Post on the Friday of the week following the sale, provided that the purchasers payments have been cleared through our Bank.
Buyers 15% (N0 VAT)
Transport facilities are available to both vendors and purchasers at a reasonable individually priced rate.
