"I would like to acknowledge the excellent service from start to finish. The various auction lots that you entered into the Music auction on my behalf exceeded my expectations by £400-£500 before costs etc.

My wife was also impressed and very pleased to get some additional space back in the spare room.

It was a welome change to be on the other side of the auction process, as I usually buy at auction, and I would have no hesitation in utilising your services again, or recommending you to friends and family.

Thank you for all your time and effort on my behalf, and all the best wishes for the future"


"Thank you for all you and your team did to promote my Father’s model in Trains Galore – we knew it was the best, we wanted the best possible price... all my father’s work was reflected in the excellent sale price"

Mrs H from Wiltshire

Mr P.T. from Canterbury
