About The Auction Centre

The Auction Centre Ltd is an independent family run company of auctioneers and valuers based in North Cheshire with regional representatives throughout the UK.

We provide a friendly professional service with a high degree of integrity and confidentiality. Our multi-discipline practice acts as auctioneers, valuers, consultants and estate clearance specialists working closely with solicitors, estate agents, banks, executors, trustees, the police and private individuals.

The Auction Centre offers a variety of professional and high quality services for both buyers and sellers in the auction world. These services include:

Valuation Service

We undertake professional valuation services from single items up to complete house contents including inheritance tax valuations, retail replacement valuations and pre-sale guide prices. We have access to a huge archive of past auction results worldwide enabling us to accurately provide vendors with current price guide information.

Pre-sale acceptance days

A consultant is available for the purpose of pre-sale valuations and acceptances every weekday (excluding public holidays) at our Runcorn head office between the hours of 10.00 am and 4.30pm with no appointment necessary. We also conduct regular acceptance/ valuation days at our various Valuation and Acceptance centres throughtout the North West. For more information visit our Calendar of Events.

Auction Services

If you wish to sell an individual item worth from £20 to £200,000, a collection or a complete house contents, we have the expertise, the experience and the facilities to guide you through the entire auction process. We hold regular fortnightly collectables, antiques and fine art auctions at our Runcorn based saleroom, and accept bids and ship lots anywhere worldwide. We operate a collection and delivery service with pre-sale estimates given on items submitted for auction, and offer worldwide exposure via selected specialist internet websites as well as in our on-line illustrated catalogue.

House Clearance Service

If you are handling a deceased estate or merely downsizing and wish to turn your assets into cash, one of our consultants will be pleased to visit you and offer evaluation advice. Full or part house clearances are conducted sympathetically, swiftly and securely employing our own porters and transport facilities. There are normally no up front fees to pay - our charges are deducted from the proceeds of the auction sale. For more information visit House Clearance.
