Okehampton Auctions

and Wreford's Removals


   Our 4th timed easylive Auction saw a whopping 1200 lots offered

With our change in direction to timed online auctions now in full swing with everybody used to the new system prices were strong in all sectors.

Once again there was high praise for the quality of Steves photography which enabled most buyers to confidently view on easylive, though we still had viewing by appointment in the saleroom, which our more local bidders took advantage of.

We are continuing to have a strict booking system for collecting & bringing in lots, which enables us to operate as safely as possible with both clients & ourselves wearing face coverings & fresh disposable gloves at all times.

Our next auction will run from 10a.m Wednesday 18th November, with the lots finishing from 1p.m on Sunday 22nd.  With many good lots already booked in there should be something for everyone!

For those wishing to book a viewing slot please ring us on 01837 55592 or email us on [email protected]  from Thursday 12th to book for week commencing Monday 16th.

Established over 80 years ago, Okehampton Auctions has a long history and association with the town.

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.

Our commission rates are: Vendors 15% (No VAT) Apart from mixed boxed lots which have an additional charge of £1 per lot from March 4th sale 2020 onwards
                                     
                                              Buyers 15% (N0 VAT)
