COVID-19 update - a new way of working

AT Richard Winterton Auctioneers, safety of staff and clients is our number one concern.

That is why The Lichfield Auction Centre must remain closed to members of the public as part of the war on coronavirus.

However, we continue to take every step necessary in order to ensure we can still offer a valuable service to clients whilst keeping everyone safe.

Free courier service

We offer a free contactless courier service for consignments such as jewellery, silver and watches.

To discuss further or to arrange an appointment, please call 01543 251081 or email

New arrangements

From June 1, we will be accepting consignments of all goods for sale in a safe environment from 10am-4pm Monday to Friday at The Lichfield Auction Centre, with no appointment needed.

We are as ready as ever to help you find that hidden gem, be it jewellery, watches, silver, bronzes, glass, ceramics, antiques, a work of art, stamps, an old toy, heirlooms or collectables!


From June 1, general valuations between 10am-4pm from Monday to Friday can be booked in advance.

Specialist jewellery valuations will be available on Tuesdays, again strictly by appointment only.

For specific valuations, please email:

Online estimates and virtual valuations via WhatsApp can also be arranged. Please telephone 01543 251081 or email to discuss any of these options.

House clearances and downsizing solutions

We have taken every step in line with COVID-19 secure business guidelines to reintroduce our renowned house clearance service.

Our stringently observed procedures include protective equipment, social distancing measures, deep cleaning and sanitiser.

Free home visits are available to arrange quotations for house clearances, downsizing and probate.

Please telephone 01543 251081 or email to discuss our range of professional services - with safety always at the forefront.

Online auctions behind closed doors
