Valuations for Auction:

We are pleased to offer free valuations for items brought into our Valuations Office between 10am and 4pm on any Monday or Friday (except Bank Holidays). No appointment is necessary and one of our Valuers will be able to tell you more about each piece and give you an idea as to value and probable auction estimate, we can then explain what it costs to sell with Batemans (you can also see our Selling page) and will offer good advice as the whether it is worth trying or not. We will most often consign items then and there so you don't have to make another visit to us unless you require time to think about our suggested auction estimate. Selling at auction is extremely convenient but not the fastest or cheapest way of selling - we may suggest alternatives to auction to you if we think it is appropriate.

We can also arrange a private appointment at our offices or at your own home for larger quantities of items, special collections, or for anything of more significant value.

Collection and delivery of goods for consignment to auction can be arranged using our own transport.

Valuations can also be requested via email by sending attached images and descriptions to or by using the image upload feature on our Contact Us page. Please note that due to the large number of valuation requests we receive it may take a week or more to receive a reply via email but of course we will get back in touch as soon as we are able in each case.
