Since 1901, Thimbleby and Shorland have been hosting auctions in the heart of Reading.
We hold regular monthly auctions of Antiques and General Household goods with catalogues currently on our website but soon to be available online and which will contain photos, descriptions and guide prices.
The Saleroom is open on weekdays from 9 am to 4 pm to receive items for sale and for valuations.
Selling at our auctions is simple.
The first step is to get a free, no obligation valuation on your items. You can either email a photograph of your item, including as many relevant details as possible to email@example.com, or arrange to come and see us in our Saleroom. Larger or bulky items can be appraised at a home visit by one of our specialist valuers. We’re happy to make house visits too, so please give us a call on 0118 950 8611.
If you’re happy to go ahead with selling your items, then just bring them in to us, or we can collect them. We will agree reserves with you, give you a receipt and enter them into the next sale.
The simplest way is to email us photographs, together with any details of your items to firstname.lastname@example.org and one of our specialists will get back to you as soon as possible.
Alternatively items can be brought to our office for valuation on any Tuesday between 9am and 4pm or otherwise by appointment, so please just give us a call on 0118 950 8611.
We’re also happy to make house visits, so larger or bulky items can be appraised in your home by one of our specialist valuers.
