Entering Items for Sale

Saleroom staff can assist with valuation advice, unloading, completion of the entry forms and any other questions.

It is important to ensure items entered for sale are clearly labelled with your client reference number. Failure to this will lead to problems in obtaining payment for your goods following the sale.

We do reserve the right to refuse lots which are un-saleable or unsuitable for auction.

You should remember that buyers need to satisfy themselves as to the quality of the goods and therefore you should present lots in such a way as to enable this to be done as easily as possible.

In order to comply with current regulations and to protect our buying customers from some of the more likely sources of danger there are certain classes of goods we do not accept for sale, detailed notices are displayed in the sale rooms.


If you are unable to deliver goods yourself please make contact with the Bedford office on 01234 266366 or or Leamington Spa office on 01926 889 100 as we have our own fleet of vehicles and staff able to undertake collections. This may be just a single item or a complete house or commercial clearance.

Collecting Payment

(W&H Peacock only) Cash can be collected from our reception office unless you specifically request for a cheque to be sent on the entry form you complete when entering goods. Please remember to bring photo ID when collecting cash. Vendors may also request payment directly into their bank accounts, please contact us for more information.


You will be required to provide basic information to obtain a client registration card i.e your name, address, telephone number and email along with one proof of identification.

Required Identification: pictured driving licence or utility bill – dated within last 3 months (please note a passport is not a proof of address).
