September 2019
"Earlier this year a cousin of my sister and I sadly passed away. He was an avid collector of Vinyl, just like his father before him, and he went on to amass a large quantity of Trains, Buses and other vehicles. We wanted to clear them in a respectful way to pass them on to other collectors and after some research decided to contact SAS - we live in Newbury so this was also very convenient. I took on the task of sorting all the items including about 4000 LPs so my first point of contact was David Martin who then recommended Dominic Foster and Bob Leggett for the trains and buses.
The first of the items, the trains, came up for sale yesterday so we were interested to attend and watch the proceedings. All of the items (32 lots) sold and for a combined total of well over the top estimates, so we were delighted. We were also amazed by the very slick sale proceedings, helped by phone and internet, and by the way all the staff including the receptionists speedily dispatched the items. We were able to take away a full list of all the prices achieved, which we didn't expect, but this is clearly another indication of your very efficient systems.
You have set a very high benchmark for the other items coming up in for sale in future auctions this year - but we will be reasonable in our expectations considering that this first one went so well.
Please pass on our sincere thanks to all your team"

"Would like to thank all your staff for the many items you have recently sold for us from collectables, jewellery and mainly albums.
It is lovely to be able to declutter and make some money as well. Having attended our first
auction today we thoroughly enjoyed it."

In response to a cigarette card valuation, a client replied, "Thank you for getting back to me. I would like to say that your service has been excellent so far and I appreciate the depth that you answer my questions. Just to confirm, is there any charges for sending payment or if items are unsold? If there is not I would love to consign my items to your auction. ..... Please let me know what the next steps will be so I can carry them out for you and make this a smooth process."
