At PFK Auctioneers, our Ethos is simple: We Care
We Care About
* Client Service
* Art & Antiques, Design & Knowledge
* Charity, proud to support local charities
* Our Beautiful & Diverse Region
We know there are many options when it comes to selling your art, antiques, jewellery and decorative items: ranging from other auction houses to online only sales. Indeed, the marketplace is crowded with so-called experts, jazzy websites and slick marketing.
What we often hear again and again, however, from clients who have tried other options and come to us are stories relating to a lack of client service, arrogance, poor attitudes and experiences with companies who clearly don’t care, companies who often promised the earth and delivered very little.
That’s the difference and this is where we excel – we do care.
Yes we have a superb 1500 square metre saleroom, better than many competitors, conveniently located just off J40 M6 and every one of the 25,000 lots a year we sell is marketed with internet bidding. As part of PFK plc, we’ve been trading since 1876. We regularly sell superb items in auction, a recent highlight being an early 19th Century watercolour of Trinidad selling for £27,000.
But what truly distinguishes us from the competition is our ethos.
We know that selling art, antiques, jewellery and decorative items is often not simply about a commercial transaction: sales of these objects are for a reason, often due to a bereavement or personal difficulty. Downsizing can also be a momentous and emotional decision. Even if a sale is simply for a change around at home, everyone deserves to be treated with courtesy, respect and given high quality service: this comes as standard at PFK.
Buyers too can expect this same level of service: we are straightforward, friendly and professional to deal with and we will always do our utmost for you.
There are other auction houses and then there’s us: We Care.
