Buying at Auction is an extremely popular method of making a purchase and we are proud of the wide variety of items we are able to offer our buyers. There is something intriguing about a range of unique items with a story to tell, combined with the exhilarating buzz of taking part. Each fortnight we welcome buyers to our Interiors Auctions, eclectic auctions consisting of antique and later decorative and household goods and each also featuring a different collecting category from antiques, fine art and jewellery through to fine wines, spirits and vintage vehicles. Additionally, three times a year we stage our specialist Fine & Rare Auctions showcasing high value, rare and unusual items. Many of our clients repeatedly visit us, with our welcoming environment and home-made refreshments, the majority choose to stay with us for the day, so come along and enjoy the fun!

how to bid


We would be delighted to see you at our Saleroom in person. Based near Penrith, just off J40 of the M6, you will be welcomed by our friendly and efficient staff and can enjoy the auction in the comfort of our spacious, modern Saleroom. A paddle number is required for all Auctions and is available free of charge. All you need to do is register at the office on arrival and you’re ready to start bidding!


If you would like to bid via telephone, please contact a member of staff in the office who would be able to arrange this for you. Telephone bid requests should be made prior to sale day to ensure adequate time for processing. Telephone lines are reserved on a ‘first come, first served’ basis so early booking is always advantageous. A secondary back-up number and a back-up commission bid are both good ways to ensure your bid is not missed. We will telephone you around 5 lots prior to the relevant lot to ensure a good connection. We cannot guarantee the execution of telephone bids left on the day of the sale.


If you can’t attend the sale and are also unable to bid live online, you can leave us with absentee commission bids to execute on your behalf. You can leave bids with us in the office prior to sale, or you can email or telephone bids through to us. We would greatly appreciate the receipt of all bids by the end of the sales viewing period, to allow us time to process them. We cannot guarantee the execution of bids left after the start of the sale.


At PFK Auctioneers we are proud to say that we were the first auctioneers in the region to offer online bidding. We attract a truly global audience as a result of our live bidding platforms, so if this is something you are interested in, we would really like for you to take part in our auctions by accessing them online.  Live bidding is available for all of our auctions.  To bid live during the auction please follow the link to and register your details.


We are pleased to offer a full in-house packing service for most items in our auctions. We send nationally and internationally by a variety of differing methods and couriers, as required. We charge postage at cost, plus a modest charge for packing materials and time. Costs can be established prior to settlement of the account, to make one easy overall payment.
