Nortrad Auctions was started in 2020 by husband and wife team, Len and Dina Norris, in a cold, windy, non appealing metal barn, on the outskirts of Sittingbourne, in the middle of an agricultural field, with a road that led to it with some of the biggest potholes ever known to any driver. Since then we have worked very hard, which has allowed us to not only move business premises but to expand to be one of the fastest growing and most pleasurable to deal with Auction Houses in Kent. We now work out of a lovely 1,850 square foot white shiplap covered building with ample parking set in a very picturesque part of the county, Goudhurst.
We are predominantly a general item Auction House, that is to say, we sell a wide and eclectic range of items in every auction, from costume jewellery to cars and books to designer wear and much more varied items. We hold regular online ‘Live’ auctions, once or twice a month and ‘Timed’ auctions. We have always loved bringing together vendors, (sellers), and buyers to give a new lease of life to all the items that we sell. We also hold more Specialised and Fine Art auctions periodically which is an area we are putting effort into to grow.
We enjoy putting on our auctions, to us it is more than just a business. Let’s face it, we are all at work for the majority of our lives, so we like to add a bit of fun when we are on the rostrum and we hope that anyone that watches us really enjoys the whole time we are selling online. We know that everyone that becomes a vendor or buyer with Nortrad Auctions thoroughly appreciates our professional and more importantly, our friendly attitude and helpfulness.
During 2021, we expanded our services to offer House Clearances. This has allowed Nortrad Auctions to offer ‘Fresh to Market’ items that everyone wants to see.
We sell online via the EasyLiveAuction.com auction platform which gives our sellers the widest possible opportunity to gain the best price for their items from not just the UK but a Worldwide audience.
