‘Marketing the historic with modern innovation’

Clients choose to sell with us for a variety of reasons and we are fortunate to be very well supported by our vendors, many of whom are repeat clients.

Acting as an agent on your behalf, PFK take care of the selling process for you, always aiming to achieve the best sale price for your items.

We are online only auctioneers, focussing our marketing efforts and resources to engage a truly global buying audience for the sale of your items. This is why we regularly achieve some of the best auction results in our region.

Our sales process begins with a free, no obligation valuation where, using our knowledge and experience, we provide an accurate appraisal of your item. We are proud of the wide variety of items that we are able to sell and with over 25,000 lots sold annually at an average selling success rate of 90%, chances are we may have sold an item similar to yours. Use our online valuation form to send us a photo and details of your item now.

The next step is to match your item to the best auction in terms of its buying audience and marketing level. We hold two distinct types of auction on a monthly basis – a live webcast sale of Fine Art, Antiques & Interiors and a timed auction of House Clearance, Electrical, Miscellaneous and lower value Antique and Decorative items. Periodically, we also hold our Curated by PFK auctions – live webcast sales of large or unusual collections of items that need specific marketing and research.

We will advise of the most suitable auction for your goods and would be delighted to work on your behalf.

Unlike many auctioneers in the market who are only interested in handling more valuable items (‘cherry picking’), we are able to handle complete clearances, selling everything from Fine Art through to garage contents, tools and machinery. Our sales system allows to market all these different items successfully and to offer a complete service. We call it ‘total auctioneering’ and it’s a service you can rely on.

Unlike some local auctioneers, we are also always able to accept auction entries: we will never turn you away and we will always be able to collect from you, no matter how big or numerous your items are. Call us on 01768 890781 to discuss your requirements and we’ll be pleased to assist.

Our standard commission rate is 18% plus VAT (a total of 21.6%) – although for larger collections and higher value items, we may be able to negotiate preferential terms. If you have further questions relating to our rates, please get in touch with us and a member of our team would be happy to assist with your enquiry.


Reserves are optional and can be placed on items in all our auctions.  The reserve price is agreed between the vendor and ourselves at a mutually acceptable level, although must never be higher than the low end of the estimate agreed. If no reserve is required (and a reserve is not compulsory), we will obtain the best possible sale price.


At PFK Auctioneers we do not make percentage charges for services such as photography and insurance.  Instead we charge a standard lot fee. This covers storage, insurance, cataloguing, photography and marketing.  These are charged at £2.00 +VAT for all our Auctions.


We work in an efficient way and hope to make the process of selling your item with PFK as easy as possible. We send sale notifications prior and post sale and pay our vendors by BACS 21 working days after auction.
