Quite simply, Anderson & Garland offer the best service in the region.
Based in Newcastle, most of our new clients come to us on recommendation, from professional advisers or existing clients.
We predominantly cover Newcastle, Sunderland, Tyne & Wear, Northumberland, Durham, Teeside, Cumbria, The Scottish Borders, and Yorkshire, but our services are often required further afield.
If you're a private individual or executor and have to arrange the clearance of a house contents, often speed is of the essence, so please call us as soon as possible. Unoccupied property can sometimes be difficult to insure and can attract unwanted attention.
Most importantly.... don't throw anything out. Clients often think they are doing us a favour by clearing away some of the 'clutter' before we arrive. Please don't....there's often value in items considered as rubbish.
Anderson and Garland fees are always highly competitive. They can vary depending on the type/value of the items you consign and the ease/difficulty of access to the property being cleared. Once our expert has assessed the contents, they will discuss all costs with you in full.
Please remember that auction is the only way to achieve the true market value of your items.
Beware of individuals or firms who mislead or trick you into selling house contents for cash. It may seem the easy option and low risk at the time, but they only offer a fraction of true market value.
We're here to maximise value for you, as your agents.
It's crucial that we go through everything and leave nothing to chance. If it's there we'll uncover it. Even if it's not there, it will stop questions in the future 'did we throw/give something special away'
Over the years we’ve discovered really valuable items in the most unexpected places for our clients, like a rare Rolex watch found tucked away at the back of a sock drawer; a significant modern painting in the back of a forgotten cupboard; and an expensive Georgian lead statue, hidden in the undergrowth at the bottom of a garden, all would probably have never come to light or been flagged up, if sold to one of these unscrupulous firms.
Although we do charge commission and removal costs for our services, these are more than offset by the top market prices we achieve, so our customers always get more.
