If you have something to sell at auction, we’d love to offer an estimate of the price it’s likely to achieve and share our advice on which auction would lead to the most interest from our buyers. The very best way for us to assess your items is in person. This gives our valuers chance to carefully appraise condition and take in all of the details.

Auction valuations outside of our saleroom

We know that getting to the saleroom isn’t always easy so we can bring our expertise to you. We can arrange a house visit or you can attend one of our valuation days, which are held around Cumbria and North Lancashire.

To arrange an appointment with one of our valuers at your home, please call our admin team on 015395 66201 and they will put you in touch with the right expert.

You can find details of upcoming valuation days on our news page or you can sign up for our regular email newsletter (insert link to newsletter sign up), which includes forward notice of any valuation events.

Probate valuations

The 1818 Auctioneers team can also provide Probate valuations. Please contact the admin team on 015395 66201 or by email and they will book an appointment with you, or arrange for a valuer to visit the property as appropriate.
