Valuation

There are several ways we are able to give clients valuations on their antiques and collectors’ items.

1. Send us digital photographs. It is very useful for the images to show close up shots of any damage, marks and inscriptions, In addition, any history you may know about the piece along with measurements. All digital images should be sent to info@charterhouse-auction.com where the photographs will be sent through to the relevant specialists.

2. We always have at least one valuer on site at our salerooms, so you can just turn up to reception for general valuations. For specialist valuation days, when you need to see an expert valuer, please check here. You can either park in the car park directly opposite our salerooms, or bring your vehicle up the drive. Should you have heavy items, we have porters available to help unload your car.

3. Alternatively, if you would like to make an appointment to see a specialist at our salerooms, please contact Justine Jackson 01935 812277 or via email jj@charterhouse-auction.com

4. Home visits. Although the majority of our business is through West Country clients, we regularly travel to see clients in London, the Home Counties and have advised clients across to Wales and up to Scotland. For appointments in Taunton, Bridgwater and Exmoor areas, please call 01278 663912, and for all over appointments call our Head Office in Sherborne 01935 812277.

Here at Charterhouse we understand the importance of customer service, and the difficulty of dealing with a company you do not know, or buying or selling at auction when it is not something you are familiar with. We are always happy to help with any queries or questions.  Here are some comments from previous customers:


About our collection service for vendors:

 
Dear Richard,
 
Just to say that your team collecting items from Stalbridge yesterday were friendly, careful, sure-footed and amazingly quick. I’m sure that you already know how good they are, but please pass on our thanks to them.
 
Best regards,
Richard Waltham

The porters were friendly and efficient, and had a wealth of knowledge about a variety of furniture from different eras. They treated furniture that had sentimental value for me with respect which is hugely important when you’re seeing it for the last time.

Regards
Pippa Wilson

About the service we offer our buyers:

 
“ I greatly appreciated the integrity of the advice  received from the staff at Charterhouse in relation  the Alvis motor car offered at auction by Charterhouse.   On the basis of telephone discussion and Mathew’s description of the car I was confident to travel from Australia to the UK  and the beautiful Shepton Mallet , Somerset area for the Auction .
 
The Alvis was absolutely as described by Mathew and this gave me the confidence to successfully bid at your  auction.
 
It was a pleasure to meet the various Charterhouse staff who went out of their way to assist in the purchase  process.  I am grateful for the honest,  professional assistance and advice in all aspects financial  through to the matters relating to delivery and shipment.
Please convey to Abigail, Mathew, Richard, Naomi and others at Charterhouse my gratitude for their exceptional assistance , involvement and professionalism  in the process and adventure of purchasing the Alvis motor car.”
 
Kind regards & many thanks

Thank you Abigail and many many thanks to Matthew, Richard and the rest of the team for all your hard efforts. You made the whole process very easy for me as it was very difficult for me to part with my pride and joy as you probably noticed on the day so my wife is very happy its finally over.

Kind regards
