House Clearance

We are an established professional auction company based in Lichfield with more than 150 years of family experience covering Staffordshire and the Midlands, with clients in areas such as Sutton Coldfield, Solihull and Burton.

The circumstances which require a house clearance are often stressful. Our comprehensive house clearance service aims to take away that stress and make everything as easy for you as possible. We pride ourselves on being reliable and sympathetic and can give advice in all matters.

Whether investigating downsizing options, emigrating or administering a deceased estate, we have a solution to suit you.

We offer complete and part house clearance services, emptying the house of all/part of the contents, properly disposing of all that cannot be sold and clearing the property afterwards, ensuring that it is clean and tidy for new occupants or to go on the market. This includes disposing of items which do not meet current fire / electrical regulations.

Where clients are downsizing or emigrating, we can advise and organise the haulage and sale through auction of any excess furniture, ornaments, pictures, electricals, tools and garden ornaments to suit their time schedule.

We offer free home visits and no-obligation quotes - a representative will meet the client on-site to discuss their individual requirements and explain the costs involved.

We pride ourselves on our integrity and act for you throughout.

In a constantly evolving antique and collectables market, you just may have a hidden gem waiting to be found! Unlike many auctioneers, we do not ‘cherry pick’ or ‘farm out’ items of lesser value to other firms. We prefer to handle the whole clearance ourselves, thus ensuring the higher value and more specialised items are offered in the relevant sale.

All items are sold at The Lichfield Auction Centre where modern salerooms cater for all aspects of the auction world - from household effects to fine art, oriental, cars to medals and fine wines. Whatever may be discovered amongst the contents of a house clearance it's to your benefit, even if you are not sure what you have. As the saying goes, it's better to be safe than sorry. Our team of experienced and qualified experts are on hand to offer their advice and up-to-date market knowledge.

Paperwork & Sale Proceeds

General receipts are given at the time of collection for goods consigned to auction with us.  Email or postal notification is sent approximately a week prior to the auction advising clients’ date of sale(s), lot numbers and pre-sale estimates.  Once everything has been sold, an itemised cheque with all fees deducted is sent by post to the account holder.  Bank transfer of funds can be made by special request.


Our initial advice is free of charge and we are always delighted to share our expertise - 'know the price before you sell'. Quotes for house clearances and downsizing solutions are given on an individual basis based on location, timings and logistics.
