Pre sale cash advance on certain lots 

It happens to us all at some stage - we don't quite budget our income as well as we should do and then you find ourselves short of cash. There may still be payments due to come out of a bank account or a special occasion is around the corner. With a cash advance we can put all these worries to one side and make those necessary payments and special purchases. advance payments on gold, jewellery and silver and up to 40% on selected lots. 

A pre-sale advance is a quick solution to a short term financial crisis.

House Clearance .Hot Line 0777 999 5117 10 till  5.30 pm monday  to saturday  

Clearing a property can be an exhausting and stressful experience. We can provide valuations for auction followed by a full house clearance. It can be surprising what items are saleable and having a valuer visit the premises to list the items of value allows family members and interested parties to make decisions about what items to sell or keep. Once items have been consigned for auction we are able to offer a full clearance service leaving the property empty, swept and hoovered and ready for estate agents, or the next occupants.
Please contact us for further information, advice or to make an appointment for a no obligation valuation.

We are open to receive goods, or collect delivered items on weekdays except Bank Holidays from 10am until 2 pm.
