Batemans is delighted to announce the opening of our new Oakham Valuation Office!

Batemans opens Oakham Valuations Office!




4 The Maltings, Mill Street, Oakham, Rutland, LE15 6EA


Managing Director Greg Bateman: "I am absolutely delighted to have opened a new Valuations Office in Oakham. We regularly visit numerous clients in Rutland and the surrounding counties and it made perfect sense to finally open an office there as a permanent presence, it has been on my wish list for a long time! Many will remember that Tennants had an office in Oakham and when they closed several years ago I knew that it was a natural next step for us to 'take over' in an area where we normally operate. I know that we offer excellent value in selling our clients' items - we have lower (and simpler!) selling fees than many of our local competitors whilst, in the opinion of many of our past customers, offering a "better service and achieving better prices"; we are proud to have served Stamford and the surrounding counties for over 22 years in selling at auction and look forward to many happy years in Oakham!"



 Serving Rutland, Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire, and Cambridgeshire.


We are particularly looking to consign items of Jewellery, Wristwatches and Pocket Watches, Antique and Modern Silver, any items of Gold - even if it's broken!, Gold and Silver Coins, Maundy Money, and any Coin Sets (Royal Mint, Hattons, Westminster, etc.).




 Batemans' Director Kate Bateman (as seen on Bargain Hunt, Flog It!, and Antiques Road Trip) or our Senior Valuer & Managing Director Greg Bateman will be available to provide advice and consign suitable items for sale. 


You can make a formal appointment by telephone or email (which we find very helpful) or turn up between 10:00am and 3:00pm. 


We look forward to seeing you!


Some of the first items consigned have already sold in one of our recent auctions and the results were fantastic, with two more delighted sellers to our credit:



A German WWII Luftwaffe Laco Type B Observers Watch or Beobachtungsuhr (B-Uhr), which SOLD FOR £2,760 (incl. 20% B.P.) against estimates of £1,500-£1,800.


An Elizabeth II gold proof five-coin set, 'The 2013 Sovereign Collection Five-Coin Set', which SOLD FOR £3,240 (incl. 20% B.P.) against estimates of £2,000-£3,000.
