John Pye Auctions competitive advantage has been built upon decades of industry innovation.

We were the first UK auction house to transition fully from live traditional auctions to timed online auctions, supported by tangible salesroom viewings.

This process started in 2008 with off-site online auctions of insolvency assets and then developed to our monthly plant and machinery auctions in 2009. A year later we started the transition of our retail goods auctions, starting with goods sourced from John Lewis department stores and doubling recoveries in the process for our client.

For three subsequent years followed the full and final transition of all our remaining auctions, both retail and vehicles, to the online platform, involving a roll out of online auctions across 8 UK sites in the space of three months.

Since then we have set new further industry innovation by devising and delivering John Pye Property online auctions, the first UK
