Selling

If you want to sell through Bainbridges, the first job is to ascertain that what you have is economically viable to offer at auction, bearing in mind the value of the object(s) and transport costs.

These days we view many items via photographs sent by e-mail to:

bainbridgesauctions@btconnect.com

Or via the post. Of course we conduct house visits particularly when we are discussing full house clearances.

The sales are conducted in a purpose-built saleroom with its own car parking situated next door to West Ruislip underground station, which also carries the Chiltern line from Buckinghamshire into Paddington.

The saleroom is only 8 minutes off the A40.

A cafe, at first floor level, provides home-made sandwiches, cakes, salads & soups along with good strong coffee, tea and juices on sale days.
