Buying at the Auction Rooms.

Sales are held regularly and include antiques and collectables, and general household items. The sale can be viewed on the Friday prior, from 10-12 & 2pm - 4pm, Saturday prior, from 10am-12pm, Monday prior, from 9am-4pm or as otherwise shown on next sale page. A buyers premium is applicable to all lots. We will be pleased to advise purchasers on estimates for all lots, and to bid on their behalf if required. Arrangements can be made on behalf of the purchasers for delivery of lots bought at Kingsway Auction Rooms. Transport can also be arranged if required.

Selling at Auction.

We are pleased to assist any prospective vendor with assessment advice and sale, for individual lots or indeed complete estates. Items may also be brought to the Auction Rooms for assessment, free of charge. Arrangements for collection of any items can be made by us with a reputable local remover. There is likely to be a charge for this service. Commission is charged @ 15% [no vat] + 3 entry fee per lot.


We have to comply with regulations regarding the auction of electrical items. Intended vendors must agree to having their items tested prior to being offered. The test fee is 3. The fee will be deducted from the proceeds of sale. If the item should fail the safety test it cannot be offered for sale, but the testing fee will still apply & the vendor will need to collect his/her goods before the auction. We apologize for any inconvenience regarding this legislation but we obviously have to operate within the law.

Complete House Clearance Service.

We can provide the complete clearance of a property if required, due to bereavement or other circumstances. All saleable lots are removed to the Auction Rooms and prepared for auction. China, glassware, silver, crockery, linen and similar items are carefully packed and transported by experienced removers. Any un-saleable lots remaining we will dispose of. Finally we can arrange for the property to be made clean and tidy, ready for sale.
