Transport

To get your items to our salerooms small items can usually be collected by our team of valuers either during a valuation visit or at another arranged time.  For larger items and collections we can recommend a specialist carrier for you.

Testimonials

 

When I decided to sell my collection back in June, my first thought was Halls Fine Art.  I have bought a number of items from them in the past. I was immediately put through to Paintings Specialist Abigail Molenaar who asked all of the right questions and was very enthusiastic about evaluating what I had. I immediately knew that I had found the right place to sell my collection and arranged to come in and see her.

Abigail has kept me informed of the impressive promotional work over the past few months and I am sure the results of the two recent auctions, which have far exceeded my expectations, are due to her enthusiasm and attention to detail. I can't thank her enough.

From meeting the specialists at the valuation day in Stockport through to selling the vase at their auction salerooms in Shropshire we found Halls Fine Art to be efficient, informative and gave a wonderful service from start to finish.  We are extremely happy with the result of the sale and will definitely sell with them in future. 

Mrs J, Stockport

 

I’d never bought at auction before and to be honest found the idea of it incredibly daunting!  I didn’t need to be worried though.  Your team made the process so exciting and held my hand through telephone bidding to making the payment on my dresser once I’d won!  I’ve now got the bug.  Thank you for taking me from nervous bidder to experienced bidder!
