Our first HMRC instruction and first auction held at our West Midlands Auction Hub in Marchington, Staffs, comprised over 700 units of oak furniture from a manufacturing business in East Anglia.
Upon instruction from HMRC, John Pye Auctions Buisness Assets department managed the appraisal, valuation, site clearance, transport, storage, marketing and online auction of over qty 10 x 40ft trailers of heavy oak furniture items.
Units ranged from oak framed mirrors to oak sideboards and dining tables and chairs and the auction offering was advertised extensively throughout the Midlands, including across Birmingham and Nottingham regional press, as well as across Cheshire and through our newly launched main club and shirt sponsorship of Nottingham Forest Football Club.
The sale was held in John Pye Auctions Marchington Saleroom 10 and attracted bidders and buyers from across the UK and proved to be a successful launch auction.
Since then our West Midlands Hub at Marchington has developed eight saleroom son-site, establishing the hub as the largest and leading general goods auction facility in the UK, serving the UK’s biggest household retailers.
