House & Estate Clearances

A part or full house clearance can often be required for a number of reasons, perhaps owing to downsizing or following bereavement. The circumstances can often be very stressful. Our comprehensive service aims to take the stress out of this and make it as easy as possible. We pride ourselves on being honest, reliable and sympathetic and can give advice in all matters.

Unlike many other auction houses, Anderson & Garland will not 'cherry pick' items or 'farm out' items of lesser value to other auction rooms. We prefer to handle the whole clearance ourselves. The more valuable items will be sold in specialist auctions, whereas more general items of furniture & works of art will be included in fortnightly Town & County auctions.

We dispose of all that cannot be sold, to charity in many cases, or wherever possible recycled, where items don’t comply with current fire/electrical regulations, leaving the property in a broom clean condition.  Remember, we’re working for you as your agents so we do not buy anything. In a constantly evolving collectables market, you may just have a hidden gem waiting to be found, which wouldn’t necessarily come to light if the contents were sold to another clearance firm...... As the old saying goes ‘It’s better to be safe than sorry’!

Receipts are given at the time of collection for goods consigned to auction with us.  We give Email notification prior to the auction advising clients’ date of sale(s), Lot numbers and pre-sale estimates.  Once everything has been sold a bank transfer of funds or cheque and  itemized account, with all fees deducted, is sent to the account holder.
