Stroud Auction Rooms
Stroud Auction Rooms is a family business established in 2004 in the heart of the Cotswolds in Gloucestershire. Since then, we have expanded to become one of the county’s leading salerooms with regular monthly two or three day auctions at our permanent base just outside Stroud.
We aim to provide a friendly, yet professional service to both buyers and sellers, regardless of the value of their goods. We offer online bidding on all lots in the auction, opening up the sale to customers worldwide, and currently often have the highest number of online buyers in the country (figures provided by the-saleroom.com).
We hold valuation days at the saleroom all day every Friday 9am-5pm and on Saturday mornings 9am -12:30pm. These are free of charge, friendly and informal and do not require an appointment. Auctioneers are on hand all day to assess your items and advise on the selling process.
We firmly believe that specialist valuers are the key to achieving the best prices for your valuables and here at the saleroom we have experts in every field – please check out Our Staff page on our website to meet the Stroud Auction Rooms Team.
Come along to one of our FREE valuation surgeries held every Friday (9am-5pm) and Saturday (9am-12:30pm), and get some FREE advice from our specialist team of auctioneers and valuers. Our eagle-eyed experts often spot an unusual item brought into one of our regular valuation days and it is not unknown for a really valuable item to be found in a box of otherwise unremarkable things, sometimes heading for the skip!
Can’t make a Friday or Saturday? No problem, let one of our experts come and see you at a time and date that suits you, and its FREE – call 01453 873800 to arrange an appointment.
Another quick and easy valuation service we offer is to send us images of your antiques via email or via our valuation forms – firstname.lastname@example.org
We understand that valuations can be needed for other purposes such as probate, insurance and private treaty.
