Due to the recent changes and the restructure of our business we will now clear over 20,000 items of luxury goods at very low reserve prices, we have developed a new 24 hour online auction system where you can bid for goods in your own time and not by a specific event date.

We are currently in negotiations with several parties to redevelop our 10 acre site and if you have an interest we are open to offers, the site has various potential uses including residential subject to the necessary planning.

During the clearance period we will not be able to accept customer goods for auction but this will resume in 2024 once we have cleared our current inventory.
