Plymouth Auction Rooms is an independent specialist auction house offering dedicated and professional valuation and auctioneering services.

Put simply, we connect buyers and sellers across the globe and it is a role we relish.

For some 30 years, we have been privileged to value and auction people’s most treasured possessions, from family heirlooms to special collectables.

Every lot we sell is promoted online to national and international collectors with professional photography and features in the local media, radio, TV and international antique magazines. We also have a large social media following and use live online bidding to achieve the very best outcomes.

We appreciate the emotional connections and special memories that possessions can evoke and we genuinely care about our customers, their families and their possessions.

We are also active within our community, recently auctioning 40 elephant sculptures as part of Elmer’s Big Parade which raised a phenomenal £323,750 for St Luke’s Hospice.

Buyers and sellers alike appreciate the attention to detail that runs throughout our business, from our initial contact and professional valuation service to the electric atmosphere of our auction saleroom.

We are proud that Plymouth Auction Rooms has evolved into one of the leading West Country salerooms, offering specialist sales for jewellery, watches, contemporary art, antiques and collectables.

But most of all we appreciate the trust that generations of people have placed in us to look after their valuable items and achieve the very best result.
