How to Sell

There are various options for selling with us at Whittaker & Biggs. Depending on the quantity of items, we may recommend booking a free valuation with one of our expert auctioneers and valuers, who will be able to visit the property in question and give an estimate valuation for the contents that you are looking to sell. You are also welcome to email photographs over to us, and one of our valuers will get back to you as soon as possible. We are also happy to provide valuations on site, where we have a number of auctioneers and valuers who all have a range of specialisms, so you can rest assured that there will always be someone available to advise you.

We accept entries into our auction on a fortnightly basis. The week following our auction, we are open Monday - Friday 9am - 5pm, and you are welcome to drop off your items, with no appointment necessary. Our friendly staff will be happy to help you when you arrive to our auction room. 

The process to enter items into our auction is incredibly easy, simply drop off your items at our auction room, fill in our vendor form (either before you arrive or on site) and let us do the rest! Forms can be found below if you would like to fill in your form prior to your visit. After dropping off your items with us, they will then be catalogued, photographed and listed on as well as our website. We attract a wide variety of buyers from across the globe, with our auctions being broadcast online. We recommend reading through our Conditions of Sale prior to selling your items with us, and this can be found below.

We hold two-day fortnightly auctions, on a Friday and Saturday. Prior to the sale, you will receive an itemised list of goods, which you will be able to preview. We will also be happy to discuss and agree upon a reserve price for your items, with this being the lowest price you would expect, with the potential to achieve more. Following the sale, you will receive a statement via email of your items and their hammer prices. We pride ourselves on paying our vendors promptly, and you will receive payment via BACS approximately 10 days following the auction.

We also offer a house clearance service, where our fantastic clearance team will use our in-house transport service to clear the property in question and bring the items to our auction room for you. More information on our house clearance service can be found here.

Auction Conditions of Sale



Each lot entered into our auction will be charged a commission of 15% (plus VAT) on the final hammer price, and a lotting fee of £3.54 (plus VAT) whether the item is sold or unsold. For larger consignments and items of particular interest, we will be happy to discuss reduced rates. 


Dispersal Sales

These consist of on farm sales of farming implements and tools with a wide range of commodities covering the farming, horticultural and smallholding clientele. Including tractors and agricultural vehicles, machinery, agricultural implements, all types of horticultural equipment, garden furniture and miscellaneous contents.

Sales on behalf of farmers who are coming out of the industry and contractors offering collective sales are increasingly popular and we are becoming more diversified and are receiving more instructions to conduct sales of a wider range of commodities.

We have experienced staff and specialist on site computer systems which will ensure that the sale runs professionally and efficiently.

It does not matter how big or how small a sale is, there is always a market for these items and we will be pleased to conduct a dispersal sale in any locality.
