Antiques, household & office furniture, machinery, motor cars, computers, small & machine tools and garden furniture & plants.


Due to the current situation regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we are obviously very aware of implications at auctions.  In order to protect our staff & customers we will be holding sales ONLINE ONLY, for the foreseeable future.

There will not be an Auctioneer selling live, all bids will need to be placed online.  For those who do not have access to the internet we will be prepared to exercise commission bids on your behalf, but these MUST be with us by 7.00 p.m. on Friday 20th at the very latest.

The following arrangements will apply in relation to Saturday’s sale:

This will be on Friday 20th from 10.00 a.m. until 7.00 p.m. in Saleroom 1 (Antiques, Collectables, etc) and from 10.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m. in Saleroom 2 (General Household, Machinery and Catering).
If it is not possible to view at these times, then please contact us about viewing by appointment.
There will be no viewing on Saturday 21st.

This will be online only.

The sale will be live for bidding as soon as it is online.
The sale in Saleroom/Ring 1 will end from 10.00 a.m. on Saturday 21st.

Each lot will end 10 seconds after the previous one, so the bidding on Lot 1 will close at 10.00 a.m.; on Lot 2 at 10.00.10; on Lot 3 10.00.20 etc.  However, in order to prevent what is known as “sniping”, the bidding on a lot will not close until there has been 5 minutes of no bidding activity.  In Saleroom/Ring 2 the sale will end from 11.00 a.m., with the same comments applying as for Saleroom 1.

Payment & Collection
It will not be possible to send out invoices until the sale has finished completely, when invoices will be emailed to all buyers.  Please pay by Bank Transfer where possible.  There will be no collection on Sale Day.
