Pettmans carries out successful antique auctions held at our Athelstan Road premises with extremely good prices achieved for our clients for antiques and objets d’art placed with us. This is a market that has seen huge interest over recent years with television programmes such as The Antiques Roadshow and The Antiques Inspectors and local radio spots and valuations.
Our auctions are attended by prospective purchasers from all areas including London and the South East, together with local people looking for the elusive bargain. As a local auction room with a wide and varied range of goods, we have certainly seen interest grow. As with all modern businesses, the Worldwide Web is a new and exciting string to any financial bow and our catalogues are published on the internet. This enables buyers from around the world to see what is on offer in any auction, then a simple telephone call to gain a condition report, and a bid can be left with the auctioneer. If the buyer is successful, Pettmans is in the unique position to be able to despatch the item immediately.
Pettmans continues to provide a probate and insurance valuation service.
