HOLTS tour the country ahead of each auction holding free valuation days, rather in the manner of ‘The Antiques Roadshow’. The days are fairly informal and hopefully informative, and are primarily intended as points of consignment to the next auction. However, we are also happy to carry out valuations for the sake of interest, together with insurance and probate requirements(a charge may be made for the last two services if required in writing).

The days are hosted by two experienced members of staff, who will be able to tell you something about the item you have brought along, and we are always keen to hear of family or related provenance, it is often of interest and can have a highly beneficial impact on the value. We will then suggest a realistic catalogue estimate and reserve (if you are minded to sell) together with a likely hammer price.

To aid the smooth-running of the day we run on an appointment system. This should ensure that you have a degree of privacy and that you’re not kept waiting before meeting one of the team.

To make an appointment then please telephone: 01485 542822
