We are a long established family firm of traditional auctioneers, having operated from the Dales Furniture Hall, Bedale for over 60 years. Michael Darwin is the auctioneer with over 40 years experience. We deal with house clearances to single items, prior appraisals can be arranged with the auctioneer. The auctions consist of around 500 lots, comprising modern , retro and antique furniture, china, paintings, tools, rugs, silver and gold, jewellery. Every auction is different, all auctions have photos on our website, facebook page and and an online catalogue is available on the ukauctioneers website usually a week before the auction, giving the items maximum coverage. The Covid pandemic has led to us changing some procedures in the saleroom. Bidders can book seats in advance, the layout of the saleroom has changed allowing easier access, the collection of goods area has been moved allowing easier access and we now accept payment by card, cheque and cash. The auctioneer now also sells from the first floor gallery area, which was devised so that sales could recommence safely.
We have considered using online auctions but feel that the traditional auction method, together with the use of an internet catalogue, telephone and commission bids will still achieve good results, and our auctions since restarting have been very encouraging.
If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact us.
Viewing is available during the week of the auction on the following days:
Wednesday: 10-12pm & 1-4pm / Thursday: 10-12pm & 1-6pm / Friday: 9.30-10.30am
