By Anita Jaynes on 27 November, 2019

A Wiltshire-based business is modernising the world of auctioneering, bringing years of experience and expertise in the trade and combining it with 21st century technology.

The Auction Hub, based in Westbury, has officially launched its business, helping customers throughout the region to sell their antiques, art, collectables and other quality items online with the support of a team of auction experts and specialist consultants.

Founded by James Harvey, the company combines the service and expertise you would expect from a traditional auction house with the speed and efficiency of an online platform, selling antique and contemporary items including fine art, furniture, collectables and much more.

James started his career at Phillips Auctioneers, followed by a period working in London and New York for Mallett. More recently he was the CEO of The Fine Art Auction Group with auction and retail businesses in Berkshire and London. He is now putting his years of experience to further use, helping those wishing to sell quality items to prospective buyers all over the world.

For customers throughout Wiltshire, The Auction Hub is able to provide services from the sale of single items all the way to complete house clearances, providing a full service from pickup to payout.

James Harvey said, “Westbury is a fantastic location for The Auction Hub, conveniently located for travel throughout the region to allow us to visit customers and offer expert advice on their art and antiques.

“We’re proud to be bringing the high standard of service you would expect at a traditional auction house to online customers throughout Wiltshire. Whilst other online auction services exist, what sets us apart is our highly efficient systems, expertise gained from decades of experience in the trade and a sound understanding of what our clients are trying to achieve.

“We offer home valuations and welcome consignments at all price points and of all periods and genres. All lots are appraised and catalogued by our specialists and the items are then sold via, Europe’s leading auction marketplace with more than 320,000 registered users.”

As a result of the partnership with Auctionet, The Auction Hub can sell items faster than traditional auction houses, but more importantly it gives sellers access to a very large buyer base, making The Auction Hub perfectly positioned to provide a bespoke service for those wanting to find a new home for their pre-loved items.
