Specialist Commercial valuers and auctioneers

Selling

We are always interested in meeting new clients who may need to dispose of excess stock, plant and machinery, fleet vehicles etc. One of our valuers will visit on site, appraise all assets and give advice on the most economical way to dispose of items. This could be either by live auction, tender sale or private treaty. The first step is to speak to our specialists who will advise on the estimated value of your items and recommend the most appropriate auction.

We can arrange specialist sales by auction, tender and private treaty for assets which require a more specific and individual marketing approach, both on our own premises and on other sites around the country.
