Covid-19 Update

In the light of the Prime Minister’s broadcast to the nation on Monday 23rd March, we have decided that for the safety and security of our customers, our staff and the wider public, we have a duty to close our business with immediate effect.

This means that the Contractors’ Plant sale due to take place on the 2nd April has been postponed, and until further notice there will be no collection of items purchased.

Further information about resumption of business will be posted here as soon as we are given the go ahead.  In the meantime we can be contacted by email at, or a message can be left on 0118 950 8611.

If you would like a valuation of items that you are considering selling by auction then click here.

We look forward to getting back to business as soon as it is safe to do so.
We hope all our customers will stay safe and healthy.
