Stamford Auction Rooms takes a forward thinking way, fresh approach to auctioneering and concept of ‘The Auction House’ whilst also keeping the valuable aspects of the auction worlds grass roots.
From single items, to large estates and private collections, we have specialist auctions to suit all our clients needs, providing free valuations prior to auction, and providing the best advice and expertise.
We pride ourselves on making the buying and selling process as simple as possible, in an approachable and friendly manner, as the days when the auction house could be intimidating are long gone.
We are sensitive to the fact that we are often helping people in their homes, with items that are precious to them or their loved ones, and in certain circumstances this can be difficult for the client. Our awareness and consideration of this has lead to people feeling very reassured and comfortable with the auction process
The online marketing, and use of our in-house bidding platform SARooms LIVE! together with other bidding platforms such as the-saleroom.com, Easylive, UK Auctioneers and the European site Druot is essential in obtaining the best possible prices for your items at auction.
SAR also publish the online auction catalogues well in advance of the auction day, which ultimately enhances the results due to reaching a wider audience.
Our auctioneer, Jessica reminds people that selling at auction is the best way of realising the true value of your items because the items are placed on an open market. Unlike selling privately to ‘awaiting buyers/collector’s’ who will provide a fixed price, often at less than generous prices, to sell on for a profit themselves, Jessica says that ‘ the vendor and the auctioneer are on the same team – the more profit the vendor makes, the more commission we make, and that’s a winning combination’.
The move to new, larger premises in early 2019, and the introduction of new specialist valuers and cataloguers has strengthened and expanded the team, enabling Stamford Auction Rooms to continue offering a fantastic service to the people of Lincolnshire, Rutland, Northamptonshire, Leicestershire and beyond and the surrounding areas, providing a high level of customer service, selling worldwide on three different auction bidding platforms, whilst also having the all important personal touch.
